According to IMDb, I gave several more films high ratings, but I don't consider a number of them to be comedy, so here's my favorite films which I think fit the genre.

Airplane!
Being John Malkovich
The Big Lebowski
Dr. Strangelove
Harold and Maude
Safety Last!
Shaun of the Dead
Some Like it Hot
To Be or Not to Be
Young Frankenstein

My top 10 would be...

1. City Lights
2. Singin' in the Rain (yeah I know, musical, but it contains a slew of the hardest laughters I ever have, eg. the test screening)
3. Ferris Bueller's Day Off
4. The Emperor's New Groove
5. Some Like It Hot
6. Trouble in Paradise
7. Groundhog Day
8. Raising Arizona
9. A Fish Called Wanda
10. Sherlock Jr.

The Big Lebowski
The Jerk
Hot Fuzz
Dr. Strangelove
This Is The End
Little Shop of Horrors
Shaun of the Dead
Observe and Report
A Serious Man
Death to Smoochy

It's hard to narrow comedies down, especially since I typically only gravitate toward things with a touch of irony & dark humor anyway, but the above films really wet my whistle.

Instead of Kiss Kiss Bang Bang . . . interesting.
I liked both, but I preferred The Nice Guys by a considerable margin.

Really? I liked both, but give the edge to Kiss Kiss Bang Bang. Something that slightly dinged The Nice Guys for me were a handful of moments that were literally taken from the first film (like the shot of the hero pulling down the dress of an incapacitated woman to preserve her modesty). I think both are pretty great but find Kiss Kiss Bang Bang more satisfying overall.

Well, maybe it has to do with the order in which we saw each. I saw The Nice Guys a couple of years ago, and Kiss Kiss Bang Bang only last year.

See, I'd probably watched Kiss Kiss Bang Bang five or six times before seeing The Nice Guys.

I know I know. And I didn't forget about it, I deliberately didn't put it there.

I know I know.

That isn't to say I don't love it, because I do, but as much as I buck against genre boundaries in horror, I seem to embrace them with comedy. Which is of course hypocritical, but I'm okay with this inconsistency. Because more often than not, comedy doesn't mean much to me in a cinematic way that horror, or other genres, generally do.

Dr Strangelove is a great film. It is also very funny. But I left room on my top 10 almost exclusively for those films which make me laugh most. Which of course means Heartbreak Kid maybe shouldn't be there, Clue or something I've forgotten about probably should. But whatevs. I'm in quarantine. I should be forgiven.

Last time I was home, my parents and I couldn't find a movie to watch until we scrolled past this already-in-progress, and we just parked it there. Leslie Nielsen in these movies was next-level. Priscilla Presley too. They played so well against the comedy with their deadpan. Nearly every joke hits, and there are so goddamn many of them.

I think they have a great balance of sight gags, dumb/silly jokes, and clever ones. But a great part of it is the delivery of pretty much everybody.

My list is flawed. Sure, Strangelove, Death to Smoochy, Little Shop & A Serious Man are some of my favorite movies, let alone comedies, but their humor isn't their defining selling point for me. I feel a lot more comfortable nominating the likes of This is the End or The Jerk, in that they pretty much thrive on hilarity alone.

I haven't! I've loved it since before discussion boards existed. Ignore the terrible dvd cover art. Plotwise, it's a cringey love triangle, very Australian. But that doesn't do it justice. It's ridiculous and very physical dark comedy, with a splash of magic realism. Miranda Otto is amazing.

It had everything, ahead-of-its-time effects, comedy, titties, great writing. Hard pressed to find a flaw. A true 10/10. Amazing that those effects still hold up well today.

:shifty:
*sigh* I was dreading some reaction to this given the ongoing discussion on Woody Allen on several threads, but my reaction to that film was... not good.

Here is something I wrote about it on Letterboxd, but the bottom line is that I just didn't care about Alvy and Annie, or their relationship.

If you've seen one Allen film, you've seen them all.

It's bad, but it's stupid/silly enough to maybe be entertaining. It's one of those I remember seeing on TV when I was a kid, part of that trend of "killer regular animals" that came in the 70s (Bees, Ants, Frogs, Leeches, etc.) A couple of years ago I stumbled upon it on YouTube and saw it whole, but I can't find it anymore. They probably took it down.

Possession
Possession is EXCELLENT. Both the horror element and the "oh, this is what it's allegorically about" element. And I think that it's final sequence/shot is maybe one of the most memorable of any film I've seen.

Good to know, I actually bought the DVD many years ago and have shamefully not watched it yet.
It also contains a movie called "Shock" (Bava, 1977). Any good?
Last Great Movie Seen
Dragonslayer (Robbins, 1981)
