This list was tough to make, so many good comedies out there these days, tough to choose which ones are the best. After much consideration I was able to narrow it down to my ten personal favorites.
#10 Ace Ventura: Pet Detective
This was my very favorite movie as a kid. When this movie came out no one knew who Jim Carrey was yet. My friends and I spent hours trying to recreate the fighting and crime solving and saying his hilarious quotes over and over. "Holy testicle Tuesday" will now be in my vocabulary forever.
#9 Meet the Parents
My favorite Ben Stiller Movie. Classic story of Fathers overprotecting their daughters from dumbass guys. What father wouldn't want to keep their daughter away from a guy who burns down a wedding alter, breaks his daughter's nose with a volleyball and spraypaints his cat. In the end though, we all learn to love Gaylord Focker.
#8 Tommy Boy
One of the true classic comedies. We finally get to see exactly how funny Chris Farley can be. "Him too fwaid to get out of the car, him just a witto guy" Gotta love Spade and Farley together.
#7 Old School
A great movie. What these guys pull off is every married guys dream isn't it? To relive our college days, join a fraternity, do stupid stuff all the time. Frank the Tank reminds us of that dumbass kid we went to school with that would do almost anything to make us laugh.
#6 Ferris Bueller's Day Off
My very favorite comedy of the 80's. We all idolize Ferris for doing whatever the hell he wants and getting away with it. Going to Cubs games, spending lunch as Abe Froman, the sausage king of Chicago, he even gets to make out with Sloan.... nice.
#5 Black Sheep
David Spade and Chris Farley get back together for a 2nd time, and in my opinion its even funnier. "I'm doing just grand! I've got a bowl of chocolate pudding in my underpants!"..... "uhhh... we didn't have any pudding in there buddy." I watched this movie at least once a week all the way through high school
#4 Grandma's Boy
I'll admit when I sat down to watch this movie for the first time, I expected it to suck, but holy shit was it funny. I was in tears almost the entire time. "I heard some growlin' and shit out in the yard. So my roommate and I, we go out to check the shit out. I look up in the tree, and there's the Fucking king of the jungle!" Linda Cardellini is also smokin' hot in this one.
#3 Office Space
Alright, I gotta admit, Peter Gibbons is my idol. This guy doesn't give a shit about work or anything else, yet somehow he ends up with everything a guy could want. "What would I do with a million dollars? Nothing.... I would relax... I would sit on my ass all day... I would do nothing. " Thats what I'm talking about Peter.
#2 The 40 Year old Virgin
I'm not sure I've ever laughed harder at a movie than I did the first time I saw 40 year old virgin. Steve Carell is absolutely brilliant. "You know what I don't have to answer to you, you ain't my bitch..... Know what I sayin'? So shit man, fuck it! ...... You should keep your hoe on a leash." In the end he finally gets to see a woman naked..... yes!
#1 Billy Madison
Quite possibly the best movie ever made. I have watched this one countless times, undoubtedly more than any move ever. Of course when it first came out in 1994 I was still a punk Jr. high kid, but its still just as funny not as it was back then. "Whoa whoa whoa, Miss Lippy. The part of the story I don't like is that the little boy gave up looking for Happy after an hour. He didn't put posters up or anything, he just sat on the porch like a goon and waited. That little boy's gotta think 'You got a pet. You got a responsibility.' If your dog is lost you don't look for an hour then call it quits. You get your ass out there and you find that fucking dog!" Billy even gets to nail Veronica Vaughn in the end, lucky asshole.
