    I've seen some great comedies over the years, and there are some that have been passed over for some reason or another. Maybe I have a weird sense of humor but these comedies should be seen by everyone sometime before they die.

    Histoy of the world - Mel Brooks
    Survivors - Robin Williams and Walter Mathau
    Ruthless People - Danny Devito and Bette Middler
    Running Scared - Billy Crystal and Gregory Hines
    Army of Darkness - Bruce Campbell
    The Holy Grail - Mony Python
    The Ref - Denis Leary

    Bubba Ho Tep is quite possibly the worst movie ever made.

    Agreed "It's a Mad Mad Mad Mad Mad World" definitely ought to be on that list.

    Also Met Brookes AIRPLANE.

    The Producers, likewise.

    I'm seeing a pattern here.

    The Producers! (The old one).

    Nothing to Lose
    Nothing but trouble

    That show with Martin Short where he has really, super bad luck...oh lord I can't remember but his bad luck is legendary and he's hired to go find and bring home the equally dismal daughter of his boss.

    The bee sting/plane scene is one of the funniest things I've ever seen in my life.

    Pure Luck!!!
