The Funniest Comedies

The feature-length comedies that made me laugh the most. I am excluding TV series and short films here. I would have added more Harold Lloyd shorts if not.

The movies are not ranked according to my preference, that would be impossible as it depends on my mood. I've just tried to move the similar films closer together and sorted them by type.

I know there are some movies that are not labeled as comedies, but they made me laugh anyhow. I also know there are many more funny films that I might even have watched already, but just aren't fresh in my memory and therefore I haven't rated yet.

Don't be mean, it's just MY opinion, you don't have to agree with me.
