Movies that made you totally LOL and ROTFL

I was so surprised to see "Les Visiteurs" had such a low rate on imdb, it's a hilarious movie (although it must be 20 years old now I don't think it got old) perfectly acted, well, maybe just the Americans who mainly vote don't understand the European humour or some puns got lost through the translations ;)

Another French favourite movie of mine, and again with Jean Reno, is "Tais-Toi!" (perhaps the last 20-30 minutes don't keep up with the pace, but nah...)

Honourable mentions to the British movies "Snatch," "Death at a funeral" and for whatever reason one more about the dead, "Shaun of the dead"

When I read the title I couldn't help thinking about this:

When I read the title I couldn't help thinking about this:


'Flying High', as it was relabelled for the Australian market, was side splitting for me as a kid... high quality slapstick and innuendo galore...

the hysterical woman scene was my fave as a kid... :lol:


and the notion of a whole 'Jive language' existing was too slick...
jive lady...

The Hot Tub Time Machine was stupidly very funny in some places.

We get so many stupid comedies here but they can make you laugh like crazy...

Hot Tub Time Machine is a good one...The Hangover 1 and 2 (while I like them), the first one absolutely cracked me up in theaters. And possibly the dumbest, most crude movie I've ever seen, Your Highness

A classic :haha: :haha:

A classic :haha: :haha:

Oh I loled huge time at this movie when I was a baby, and now I check, it's the same director as one of the movies I mentioned in my first post ;)

I guess along with Tarantino, Rodriguez and Richie he is my new fave director :p

Many comedians can produce gold stuff, but very few movies are good all the way through. Off the top of my head I can think of:
The Big Lebowski - easily my pick for funniest comedy ever
Man on the moon
Groundhog day
Something about Mary
A fish called Wanda
Some like it hot
40-year old virgin
Annie Hall
Kung fu hustle

These are good for many laughs but I still haven't seen any movie that goes the distance:
Pink Panther movies
Marx brother's movies (the songs totally spoil everything)
Monty Python movies

Still haven't seen but want to:
This is Spinal Tap
National Lampoon's vacation

Young Frankenstein
Blazing Saddles
Dr. Strangelove

I saw Bridesmaids a couple weeks ago, very funny.

"In the loop" was very good.

No wonder ! Veber is one of the best French comedy director and scenarist of his time. If there's one recent film of his that I may recommend you, it would be La doublure with Auteuil and Elmaleh. Great scenario and great irony. Are you watching 'em in original version, Nathii? ;)

And I really love the trilogy La chèvre/Les Compères/Les fugitifs of the 80's. Depardieu/Pierre Richard, the greatest straight-foil/comic in history for me ! Those were the good old days when the French could make great men's films with fighting, humour, irony and heart and tenderness. ;)

And lol @ Michel Fortin. The guy with the trolley on Andreea's clip. He's a famous theatre/TV actor in France but here he only had that small role.

My favourite scene from Les compères (how casual and natural Richard is approaching these rockers is awesome :D):


Depardieu: We're gonna have problems. Have you seen the monsters?
Richard: I'm taking care of it. I used to be a teacher. I can handle the kids.
Depardieu: Pignon? They're gonna destroy your head.
Richard: I'm taking care of it and we won't fight. Most of all, don't mix into it.


Richard: hey guys ! How are you doing? (pointing toward the hi-fi system; clicking his fingers) Great, the guitar ! wow holy shit, the rhythm! wow! Briliant !

I've just seen that Les fugitifs was on YT. I love that intro when Depardieu is released from prison. The music, that's Cosma at his very best. The bottleneck, makes me think of Ry Cooder. :yeah: Depardieu in his best role, too.



Otherwise King Ralph, Back to the Future (the 1st one), most of the Laurel & Hardy and every Terence Hill/Bud Spencer.:D

Fast Times At Ridgemont High. How Sean Penn did not get nominated or win the Academy Award for Best supporting actor as Jeff Spiccoli is an injustice.

All of the Monty Python movies
The Dinner Game -> classic french humour, was laughing really badly
A lot of classic Hong Kong comedy movies are actually REALLY funny. the only ones that have made my stomach hurt literally.
