As is its custom, Brit film mag Empire comes up with yet another list of the greatest somethings-or-other ever. This time, it’s the 50 Greatest Film Comedies. This one was voted by the readers — so you know who to blame if you disagree.
The Zucker Brothers’ 1980 classic “Airplane” takes top honors — and I can’t say I disagree. Coming in at Nos. 2-5 are “Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy” (which I’ll dispute mightily); “The Big Lebowski“; “The Life of Brian” and “Monty Python and the Holy Grail.”
