Superbad wasn't that funny. Wedding Crashers sucked.

Anchorman is my dark horse for the 1st bracket, it's the only one that might put up a fight vs Caddyshack. Monty Python should come out of the 2nd bracket. 3rd bracket, Animal House in a walk. 4th bracket, do not overlook Office Space or Clerks.

Office Space vs Stripes?

Tommy Boy vs Airplane?

Seriously, how do you decide on which one?
Galley Boys are slop on top of a so-so burger and a bun you coulde get from a Covneninet food mart generic pack. They the Antoine Joubert of burgers; soft, sloppy, oozing grease and cheap sauce and extremely overrated by a biased fan base. Proof that if you throw enough cheap sauce shit on a burger you still can't overcome the lame burger. -JB

I'm completely amazed that Borat was a #3 seed and the Big Lebowski was a #7 seed. I thought Borat was some weak sauce, especially considering the HBO show was better. The Big Lebowski is probably my favorite movie made in the past 15 years. But I guess different stuff make different people laugh.

Also pretty bummed that Jim Carey's 2 movies are facing off in the 2nd round. Dumb and Dumber will probably destroy Pet Detective.

This is my favorite bracket yet thanks again.
How long do you estimate it took you all to put this together (if you don't mind me asking)??

I see what you are saying, but they are different in my opinion. Carrey completely carried both movies with his acting. Akroyd wrote two amazing movies, but he was kind of the supporting comedy with his acting.

This bracket has made me realize how many funny movies are out there.

#2 Dumb & Dumber
#7 Ace Ventura: Pet Detective

This is the wildcard bracket. Airplane did not get near the support I thought it would, barely fending off 16 seed Spaceballs. I think Fast Times and Dumb and Dumber duke it out to cut down the nets in this region.

People probably over-hyped it for you. It's a 2 seed, it deserves another shot.

I do agree Owen Wilson is a douche, Vaughn pulled the weight in Wedding Crashers.

I love Old School but how is it thrashing The Big Lebowski?



Also Wedding Crashers was hilarious. The football game was hilarous, the quail hunt was hilarious, and Chaz was hilarious. Sorta slowed down at the end but that happens in all comedies when they have to tie the story together.

Clerks was good for a no budget indie film. Happy Gilmore was hifuckinglarious. Gilmore was waaay funnier IMO. and you definitely can't judge a movie by how many sequels its had, lemme remind you Final Destination 5 or 6 (i lost count) is coming out in a week or two

Good point about the Final Destination series. However I enjoyed: Mallrats, Jay & Silent Bob, and Clerks 2. Guess we could throw Chasing Amy into that list as well. Maybe Dogma, as well, but I did not like that one as much.

I voted for Clerks, because I think it's the better film. Happy Gilmore was really funny, but I liked the more adult humor in Clerks better.

Going to close up second round voting shortly here.

Two matchups that could still swing with some last minute votes.

Vacation/Ferris Bueller
Christmas Vacation/40 Year Old Virgin

Both are virtual deadlocks.

Yog, try clearing cookies. On the latter question, that's just cause there have been a small # of votes so far.

Office Space v. Old School is tough.

And I see absolutely no way that Monty Python should be beating Dumb & Dumber.

I felt like killing myself during Monty Python. Dumb & Dumber was my personal most quoted movie for a very long time growing up.

agreed. i just wasn't alive for the whole Mel Brooks era and i simply don't get it. those movies just don't make me laugh. Dumb and Dumber was a very touching tale under an extremely stupid funny front. it was very very funny.

And I see absolutely no way that Monty Python should be beating Dumb & Dumber.


Monty Python is a superior movie. Dumb and Dumber is very funny, but it doesn't touch Holy Grail.

Mel Brooks didn't make Monty Python And The Holy Grail.

What part of Dumb and Dumber was the "touching tale"? Was it when Harry had explosive diarrhea?

I love Dumb and Dumber, but Holy Grail is a notch above it, JMHO.

Caddyshack v. Airplane! would probably be a slugfest on any other website, but I can't see Caddyshack winning by anything less than 15%.

Mine would be

2. Caddyshack
3. Ferris Bueller's Day Off
4. Xmas Vacation
5. Monty Python & the Holy Grail
6. Airplane
7. Office Space
8. Animal House

Although only the top 3 would make my all time top 8 for comedies. 3 have been knocked out and 2 didn't make the original bracket.

I don't get the love for Ferris Bueller. It's a dated, campy 80's movie. I don't even know if I'd call it a "comedy", at least not in the same vein. as the rest of the 64 bracket.

It's not in the same ballpark as the other top 8. Hell, it's not even in the same league.

I just don't get it.

1. Caddyshack
2. Animal House
3. Blazing Saddles
4. Office Space
5. Christmas Vacation
6. Airplane!
7. Monty Python & the Holy Grail (Just personal preference here, not a big MP fan)
NR. Ferris Bueller's Day Off
