If you look over to the left - down a little, you'll see our Favorite Movie list. On that list are a couple of movies that Krissy and Cait made me include. Honestly...Super Troopers??? But I have to acknowledge that there are a group of movies out there that absolutely slay my kids. So, in my efforts to refine the list at the left, the girls (with some spousal input) have created a list of their favorite comedies.
You probably think that's simple. Ahhh, not so fast. It seems there are two types of comedies that they love. For the purpose of this list, there are the Serious Comedies and the Ridiculous Comedies. The Serious Comedies are actually good movies that are very funny and Ridiculous Comedies are movies that you know aren't good, but you can't turn them off or stop laughing at them.
Please note that we are limiting the "Ben Stiller" movies to just one, as most of his movies make Caity (and me) just a little crazy. His characters are so embarrassing that we are very uncomfortable and cannot enjoy the film.
We also had to limit the number of "Judd Apatow" movies. They acknowledge he is a "comedy god", but don't want him over represented on this list. Wow...not too many qualifiers on this list, eh?
- The Big Lebowski
- Super Bad
- 40-Year Old Virgin
- Napoleon Dynamite
- Something About Mary
- Animal House
- Ferris Bueller's Day Off
- Trading Places
- Little Miss Sunshine
- Super Troopers
- Euro Trip
- Beer Fest
- American Pie
- Drop Dead Gorgeous
- Harold & Kumar Go To White Castle
- Weekend at Bernie's
- Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back
Do I even need to say that most of these movies are not appropriate for younger audiences, or is that already implied by their titles?
So...that's the list. Did we miss one of your favorites? We'd love to hear your thoughts?
