Don't forget History of the World Part 1 and Abbot and Costello Meet the Wolfman.

I also found Airplane 2 to be almost as funny as part 1 simply on the strength of Bill Shatner. He's a freaking riot.

Instant classic on Hangover? No way.
It's good but nowhere near a top 20 or 30 comedy.
Overhyped in my book.

I should also mention Porky's, Hollywood Knights, Better Off Dead, and The Sure Thing as some of my all time favorites.

Its "Abbott & Costello Meet Frankenstein" but Wolfman and Dracula are in it. Great, funny movie. Great for the kids!

Now for my favs.

Mel Brooks was a genious in "Young Frankenstein" & "Blazing Saddles"

The scene with Gene Hackman & Peter Boyle may be the best 5 minutes of comedy in history, watch it again!

Others: Caddyshack, Office Space, Trading Places, Monty Python & The Holy Grail (Loved Spamalot on Broadway), The Odd Couple, Harvey, Ghostbusters.

I watch Planes, Trains & Autimobiles every Thanksgiving night, tradition at my house.

Of Course, Vacation, Christmas Vacation and Ferris Bueller are all great.

My favorite Jack Black movie is Shallow Hal.

And a very funny comedy from years past is "The Philadelphia Story" with Cary Grant, Kat Hepburn & Jimmy Stewart! Top that cast!
