The 50 Funniest Comedies Ever?

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.”

    I agree, Anchorman should not be in the top 5. And what about History of the World, Part I? Not even in the top 50? That was hysterical – much funnier than a lot of these movies. Plus, a great movie line – “it’s good to be the king.” I can watch Airplane, Monty Python and Life of Brian any time, they are classics.
