I am not a huge Monty Python fan, seems like you like it more when you are younger, but how can Life of Brian be ranked ahead of the Holy Grail? Am I wrong here.


No. No you are not.


I agree.

I also agree with Kite's original point. There are like 40 movies on that list that no one has ever heard of.


It's film critics from 52 separate countries compiling a list for a British media company, not surprising.

Movie goons are bad enough. Comedic movie goons can eat the inside of my asshole. Dr Strangelove? Fuck outta here. Albert Brooks? Get fucked.

That's fair. It's still a dumb list.

Putting anything before 1960 on a list of 'best comedies' is typically absurd.

Some Like it Hot is pretty good though. Lemmon is gold.

BBC Culture polled 253 film critics from 52 countries to determine the funniest films ever made.


52 countries? I don't know if I could even name 52 countries. /BSMB

Not sure the criteria they used, but here are the 52 most populous countries:


1 China
2 India
3 U.S.
4 Indonesia
5 Brazil
6 Pakistan
7 Nigeria
8 Bangladesh
9 Russia
10 Mexico
11 Japan
12 Ethiopia
13 Philippines
14 Viet Nam
15 Egypt
16 DR Congo
17 Iran
18 Germany
19 Turkey
20 Thailand
21 U.K.
22 France
23 Italy
24 Tanzania
25 South Africa
26 Myanmar
27 South Korea
28 Colombia
29 Kenya
30 Spain
31 Ukraine
32 Argentina
33 Sudan
34 Uganda
35 Algeria
36 Iraq
37 Poland
38 Canada
39 Morocco
40 Afghanistan
41 Saudi Arabia
42 Peru
43 Venezuela
44 Malaysia
45 Uzbekistan
46 Mozambique
47 Nepal
48 Ghana
49 Yemen
50 Angola
51 Madagascar
52 North Korea



I doubt people in half these countries even know what the cinema is.

I also just learned that Australia is #53 most populous at only 24.6 million people. Seems like they have a lot of land for that few number of people. Maybe we could ship them our prison population or something like that.

Office Space, Naked Gun, Ghostbusters (95???????) criminally underrated

Bridesmaids at 44 ahead of all of them? GTFO

Clueless at 34?????

Pulp Fiction is a comedy? d'ok

And yeah, Holy Grail >>> Life of Brian

You can equate Australia and the state of California in my ways.

South Park is infinitely funnier than Team America.

I don't have any quarrels with Clueless at 34. It's a classic.

I agree with Dong on South Park vs. Team America.

I would love to see ctz watch and review some of the old/foreign ones.
