Well these are mine:
  • 10. Dumb and Dumber - "That John Denver is full of shit."
  • 9.What's Up Tiger Lilly "We must find the secret egg salad recipe of Wing Fat." (Paraphrase)
  • 8. Naked Gun - "Nice Beaver."
  • 7. Strange Brew - "I found this dead mouse in my beer eh."
  • 6. Caveman - "Lar nya puka."
  • 5. Airplane - "I am serious, and don't call me Shirley."
  • 4. Happy Gilmore - "The price is wrong, bitch."
  • 3. The Holy Grail - "Are you suggesting that coconuts migrate?"
  • 2. Blazing Saddles - "Why ain't y'all singin' no nigger songs like Camptown Ladies?"
  • 1. The Life of Brian - "I have a vewy gweat fwiend in Wome called 'Biggus Dickus'."


  • Honorable Mention:
  • Space Balls - "Funny, she doesn't look Druish."
  • Sleeper - "But they give us the Orb and the Orgasmitron why should we want more?" (Paraphrase)
  • Young Dr. Frankenstein - "Abby Something. . . .Abby Normal"


  • Thanks to Thomas Paul for realizing that Police Story should be Naked Gun. Police Story was the TV series.

    Yep and I realized that I had forgotten about the Steve Martin classic: The Jerk. Another good Martin comedy was The Man with Two Brains. Maybe I need to revise my list.

    I love that movie. Who was the lead character in that movie?
    I loved that scene where Frankenstein has dinner with the blind man. It was too funny!

    Gene Wilder. He is one of the all time greats. He appeared in several of the Mel Brooks' movies. He was also in "Blazing Saddles" as The Waco Kid. After his wife Gilda Radner of SNL fame died of cancer, he kind of just faded away. Another movie that I had forgotten which he was in was another of the great Woody Allen flicks "Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Sex (But Were Afraid to Ask)". It was an anthology of three or four skits. He was in the one entitled "What is Sodomy?" He was a psychiatrist that was treating a shepherd who came from Albania (I think) that had fallen in love with one of the ewes. Wow, that sounds like a redneck.

    Airplane, Dumb and Dumber, Naked Gun and Life of Brian, all superb choices. I'd add these:
    Clerks - all 'Jedi' had was a bunch of Muppets
    Army of Darkness - Give me some sugar baby
    Repo Man - I do want your money because God wants your money
    Dead Alive/Braindead - inspiring zombie gore fest
    Spinal Tap - you couldn't dust for the vomit

    You guys keep showing me how my poor aging memory is failing me. That was one great flick. 10 choices just aren't enough. I wonder how many of you guys have actually seen "What's up Tiger Lilly?"? It's difficult to find, most rental places don't carry it. I think it's one of Woody Allen's best. For those who have not seen it, it is a Japanese spy movie that Woody took and dubbed English lines into. If you haven't seen it, it's worth a wasted couple of hours when you don't have anything else going.

    Not me! I hadn't heard of it. Sounds interesting though; I'll see if can pick it up in UK.
    Generally I like any Woody film that doesn't star the man himself. Great writer and great comedy, I just can't stand watching him! Bullets Over Broadway is an excellent film - I'm so glad he didn't decide to appear in it! Just me I guess...

    Of course! The great John Belushi. "Porky's" and "Dr. Strangelove". Man there have been a lot of good comedies since the 60s.

    Which movie is it with Leslie Nielson getting a portable mike hooked up to him? He gives his speech and then heads into the bathroom. Everybody in the audience is treated to the sounds of him doing what one does in the bathroom.

    That wqas one of the Naked Gun films which, I think is what #8 is supposed to be. "Police Story" was a Jackie Chan movie (and also an old TV show).

    You're right, my bad. Too much gin and not enough vermouth in the martini when I posted that.
    The Producers
    That's another Mel Brooks flick, right? I'm ashamed to say I haven't seen it yet, but will put it on my to do list.

    How can a movie be bad when the premise is that two Broadway producers want to make a musical called, "Springtime for Hitler"?
    This was Mel Brooks' first film.

    The Springtime for Hitler part sounds familiar. I may have seen it. His first movie? I'll definitely have to watch it. Another of his movies that I had forgotten was "The History of the World: Part I", I remember laughing my ass off at the dance routine in the Spanish Inquisition segment.
