I think one of the funniest movies I recall is one with Demi Moore and Dan Akroyd. It is called Nothing But Trouble. It is bizarre, fantastical and very different.[Financier Chris Thorne (Chevy Chase) hopes to impress beautiful Diane Lightson (Demi Moore), so he invites her along for a trip to Atlantic City. After running a stop sign in a small town just off the New Jersey turnpike, Chris and his friends are pulled over and arrested by a motorcycle cop named Denis (John Candy). The travellers are brought before J.P. (Aykroyd), the ancient and vindictive Justice of the Peace in the very strange village of Valkevania, where minor traffic offenses are usually punished by torture or death. While his friends are able to escape, Chris and Diane find themselves trapped in a bizarre underground maze in which fellow tourists like themselves must fight for their lives. Another one that is a classic is Some Like It Hot [Two hapless nightclub musicians (Jack Lemmon, Tony Curtis) accidentally witness a mob murder and skip town by dressing up as women and joining an all-female band.] with Marilyn Monroe, Tony Curtis and Jack Lemmon. It is so silly. What is your favorite one that you would like to share with us?

I think my all time favorite was "What's Up Doc?" with Barbra Streisand and Ryan O'Neill. It involved multiple switched travel bags and musical rocks. There were spies and thieves and slapstick humor and chase scenes up and down the streets of San Francisco. I say it has to be my favorite because I believe I have seen it more times than any other comedy.

Yes, that was a cute movie. Barb and Ryan are both good at comedy. I liked her in A Mirror Has Two Faces with Jeff Bridges. I will have to order that from Netflix and watch it again. Thanks.

Hi celticangle, I don't know which I is my funniest comedy movie I ever watch. But, I love to watch P Ramle (Malaysia Actor)movie. He is a legend on malay movie. He always made a funny movie like Do Re Me, Bujang Lapok, Madu 3 and a lot more. All this are 70's movie but still popular among Malaysian. Never get bored watch this movie. For international movie, I like Jacky Chan movie. Even though they are mostly action movie but a lot of funny scene there. They usually show what went wrong during the film making after the end. Enjoy your movie and have a nice day.
