Top Secret is ok, but Fletch or Caddyshack is more my style of comedy.

Boy, this is hard, probably because there are so many different types of comedies. I guess that I will go with The Naked Gun.

Very tough call, since this was in a lot ways a peak time for comedy, and I sampled most of them. If I had to take one guess, it would have to be Spaceballs, with their no holds--or no windows for that matter either--barred approach to the whole picture. It defined me, hard as that may be to fathom ordinarily, and showed me more than any other film that the #1 rule of comedy is that there are no rules.

There are too many to count. But two spring to my mind immediately.

'The Gods Must Be Crazy' and 'Watch Out We're Mad'.

Saw both at the cinema, they are not common films that are aired much on TV, but have stuck in my memory.

Thinking about it, I think probably 'Watch Out We're Mad' might have been a 70s film. (God, am I really that old!!!!!!!! lol).

'The Gods Must Be Crazy' was hilarious-saw it in the theater too. N!xau died in 2003. So much trouble over a Coke bottle!

"This is Spinal Tap" is the funniest 80s movie by far. I am completely mystified by "The Gods Must Be Crazy." It's basically the same crappy three jokes over and over, mostly filmed in misframed, barely in focus shots and edited with hedge clippers. It's the most overrated 80s movie. (Putting on a Kevlar vest because I know that I'm about to be fragged here.) :-) But I also know that I am in a tiny minority, judging by the number of folks who seem to really love it. To those folks, I dare them to defend the sequel. :-)

no need for kevlar vest crash as i am in agrement with you about the cutting of that movies although it really did make me laugh and a little confused at an age of 12. i dont find it that funny now either but i also didnt like spinal tap and havnt seen it since it first came out. And yes the sequel imo sucked big time.
Actually have you got a spare vest?
