Directors: Peter Farrelly, Bobby Farrelly | Stars: Jim Carrey, Jeff Daniels, Lauren Holly, Mike Starr

Votes: 314,839 | Gross: $127.18M

This is probably the 1 movie I will remember Jeff Daniels for.

Votes: 115,229 | Gross: $25.59M

My favorite Adam Sandler movie of all time.

Who can forget scenes like the burger joint scene, the flaming bag scene or any of the scenes with the Penguin or the O'Doyles?

Also: "Mortal Kombat on Sega Genesis is the best video game ever."

Not as good as some of the stuff Adam Sandler & David Spade did in the 90s but this is still fun to watch.

1 of Chris Farley & David Spade's finest work.

6. Black Sheep (1996)

PG-13 | 87 min | Comedy

Director: Penelope Spheeris | Stars: Chris Farley, David Spade, Tim Matheson, Christine Ebersole

Votes: 32,311 | Gross: $32.38M

Another good 1 in my opinion.

Chris Farley made me laugh with the truck scene at the beginning (Where the head covered C L & it said TOTAL ASS) & let's not forget the boulder scene followed by the fridge scene.

Mike: "I'm just dandy! I got a bowl of Chocolate Pudding in my underpants!"

Steve: "We didn't have any pudding in there."

Votes: 45,343 | Gross: $27.09M

Not as good or Black Sheep or Tommy Boy but it's still enjoyable.

I like the Atom Bomb scene, the crap tank scene & the Silence of the Lambs parody.

8. Spaceballs (1987)

46 Metascore

Planet Spaceballs' President Skroob sends Lord Dark Helmet to steal planet Druidia's abundant supply of air to replenish their own, and only Lone Starr can stop them.

Votes: 150,959 | Gross: $38.12M

Those newer spoof movies kind of suck & are not really worth my time but Mel Brooks proves that not all spoof movies are retarded (sorry it was the best word I could think of)

If you like stuff like Star Wars or Star Trek, then this movie is for you.

9. Robin Hood: Men in Tights (1993)

PG-13 | 104 min | Adventure, Comedy, Musical

Votes: 84,122 | Gross: $18.49M

The Broken Lizard guys are hilarious in this movie.

To me, the most memorable scenes are the beginning ("Littering and..."), the Meow scene & the whole sequence where Farva was off suspension (Dimpus Burger & his arrest).

12. Beerfest (2006)

46 Metascore
