I actually wasted time and caught the countdown of Bravo's hundred funniest movies. It was a very disappointing list. I thought three of the best left off were Fletch, Parenthood, and Back to School. At least they included Rushmore, What About Bob?, Flirting with Disaster, Meet the Parents, Office Space, Monty Python and the Holy Grail, A Fish Called Wanda and a few other classics. But, they put far too many films by the likes of Sandler (his only funny movie is Anger Management and Jack Nicholson is actually funny, Sandler is the straight man), Owen Wilson, and Vince Vaughn. Vince Vaughn has yet to make a funny movie (Old School was watchable and made their list but it shouldn't have been anywhere near a list like this), and Owen Wilson was in Meet the Parents, but that is his only hilarious role that I know of (Wedding Crashers was one of the most overrated movies of all time). Overall they put a lot of movies on the list that actually are great movies to see, but don't deliver laughs like movies on an all time greatest list should. I mean Animal House was number one, there's humor in that movie and it is a classic, but I don't remember laughing much when I watched it.
