The 50 Greatest Comedy Films
24 May 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

For a 50 Greatest (instead of usual 100 Greatest) countdown, I found this a near essential one, to find the greatest comedy film. The list included fantastic films like: The Producers, Carry On Screaming, Bridget Jones's Diary, The Ladykillers, Police Academy, Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure, Duck Soup, Team America: World Police, A Shot in the Dark, Four Weddings and a Funeral, Meet the Parents, The Full Monty, School of Rock, Dr. Strangelove, When Harry Met Sally, Ghostbusters, A Fish Called Wanda, Young Frankenstein, Dumb and Dumber, Some Like It Hot, The Naked Gun, Groundhog Day, The Blues Brothers, Annie Hall, This Is Spinal Tap, There's Something About Mary, American Pie, Monty Python and the Holy Grail, South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut; Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery, Shaun of the Dead, Airplane!, and the winner, Monty Python's Life of Brian. Narrated by Stephen Fry, Steven Berkoff, Alan Carr, Richard Curtis, Tony Curtis, Jim Dale, Jeff Daniels, Dom DeLuise, Mark Dolan, Bobby Farrelly, Fenella Fielding, Terry Gilliam, Elliott Gould, Richard E. Grant, Seth Green, Richard Griffiths, Christopher Guest, Julie Hagerty, Charlie Higson, John Landis, Jackie Mason, Leslie Nielsen, Michael Palin, Simon Pegg, Parker Posey, Priscilla Presley, Steve Punt, Harold Ramis, Vic Reeves, Carl Reiner, Rob Reiner, Joan Rivers, Harry Shearer, Kevin Smith, Mel Smith, Eddie Kaye Thomas, Stephen Tobolowsky, Gene Wilder, Alex Winter, Edgar Wright, Jerry Zucker and many more. Very good!
