One of the 5 funniest things I’ve ever heard a human say, “Are you familiar with the story of Moneyball? A man uses statistics and logic to win several baseball games.”

Coming To America might be my favorite comedy movie of all time.  At least for me, it’s the Shawshank Redemption of comedies, any time it’s on I can play it from wherever it’s at and finish it lol

 

BTW while we’re at it, Shawshank Redemption is the greatest movie of all-time.

That is why I asked if this was personal favorites or what one thinks is historically top 5.  (My top two favorites I wouldn't put in the top 5 comedies of all time).

It’s a personal ranking.  When it comes to comedies who cares about historical top 5’s because at one point My Big Fat Greek Wedding was the most talked about comedy of the year and that **** wasn’t funny at all to me.  Corny.

I'm trying to plug Tropic Thunder into your list somewhere, @-JB-, but having a hard time.  Maybe swap it out with Harold & Kumar.

I thought about putting it in there!  Robert Downey Jr’s role alone should get it on the list ha

Cmon man!  Pineapple Express clearly better than knocked up!  “You used to not give a **** about discretion.  I seent you rip somebody jaw bone off.  I seent it.” 😂

The lack of respect given to Dinner For Schmucks is highly disturbing.

4.  Hoosiers

5.  Slap Shot

 

 

I was about to ask why nobody included Slap Shot in their sports film lists. Good man, China.

Are we just talking movies because if not - top 5 favorite sporting events:

1.) MLB playoffs (I live for October Baseball)

2.) Stanley Cup Playoffs (At least as cutthroat and thrilling as MLB Playoffs)

[Big gap]

3.) Michigan-Ohio State football game (not a fan of either but that hate is so real and potent, I can't resist it)

4.) NCAA Basketball Tournaments (both men's and woman's)

5.) NFL Playoffs (Love the football, *loath* the glut of commercials)

Robert Redford never seems to get mentioned as a top 5 actor and yet he's nearly impossible not to notice in his films.

 

In his prime, he owned the screen. I'd add Hanks, De Niro/Nicholson (even if it's the same character over and over), and Harrison Ford to my personal list.

 

 


Spy Game is a top 10 movie for me.

Pacino?  Deniro? Denzel Washington? Nicholson? DiCaprio? 

 

Edit: Also Anthony Hopkins, Daniel-Day Lewis

There is so much bad about new jack city, Ice T's acting being the worst of the bunch, but it is still an undeniable classic

Haha yea man & Judd Nelson as Nick was bad too but man oh man was Wesley great as Nino Brown.  Such an underrated actor in my opinion.  We need a Wesley comeback ha

In terms of comedies, I'd go:

 

Young Frankenstein

Raising Arizona

Superbad

The Jerk

The Nutty Professor (Eddie Murphy version, just for the damn dinner scene alone)

Sheer fate.  Collateral damage for Nino holding up the little girl as a shield!
