Funny movie recommendations?

#1

Hey guys :slight_smile:

Not to be a copycat (hehe) of Kerry’s thread, but my mum asked me earlier if I knew any funny movies she could get for her and my step-dad to watch.

Any kind of humour, old or new (don’t be afraid that something may be too “rude”, they’re pretty laid-back), doesn’t matter - all suggestions are greatly appreciated :flower:

Okay
just these.



#3

If you need something highly politically incorrect, you may wish to check out [B]Don’t Be a Menace to South Central While Drinking Your Juice in the Hood[/B].

There are a few scenes that are really hilarious… :slight_smile:


#4

Just a few oldies which seem to stand the test of time (for me anyway :slight_smile: ):

Trains, Planes, and Automobiles (Steve Martin, John Candy)

The 'burbs (Tom Hanks, Carrie Fisher)

Monty Python & The Holy Grail (you know who’s in that!)

The Great Outdoors (Dan Ackroyd, John Candy)

Blazing Saddles

Less conventionally:

Amelie

…and if you want a nice gentle English B&W comedy: School For Scoundrels (the 1960 version with Ian Carmichael and Alistair Sim)

Ya Jwill427 Spaceballs is one of my all time faves :slight_smile:


#9

I would recommend “Bad Santa”. One of the all time great comedies, IMO. Also, “Bruce Almighty” and “Liar, Liar” are a couple more good ones.


#10

I usually get a few laffs out of any of the Jackie Chan movies too


#11

Lets throw in a little animation.

Over The Hedge

Ice Age

Ice Age 2

Shrek 1,2,3

Some others,

Police Academy

Did anyone mention Super Troopers?

#14

Kelly’s Heroes, Cat Ballou, McLintock, Ace Ventura, Mannequin, Just one of the Guys, Major League, K9, On the Buses, Collision Course, Junior, Twins, to name a few, if you need more, let me know. Also Mr Hobbs takes a Vacation, Groundhog Day, Canadian Bacon, Strange Brew.


#15

IMHO, The Big Lebowsky, O Brother Where Art Thou? or One Night at McCools…John Goodman is so, well, good, man…Beware of the constant use of the ‘F’ word in Lebowski, though…


#16

Saw this TV series Many years ago .
The honeymooners

:flower:


#17

ANd from one of the Creators of Red Dwarf , The Pretenderers … It’s hilariously peculiar IMO :cool::bigsmile:


#18

Some great suggestions there guys.

It’s very hard to pick great movies that people won’t have seen but here’s a couple more that most people won’t have seen and I’ve enjoyed.

‘The Actors’ with Michael Caine, Dylan Moran & Michael Gambon.

Also ‘The Matchmaker’ the 1997 version with Milo O’Shea and Janeane Garofalo is one of my favourites with some great Irish style humour.
