    I just wanted some help on my quest to find more comedy movies so I thought I'd just open a thread here. So please, recommend me some comedy movies! To make it easier (because not everyone has the same sense of humor) I made a list of movies I really enjoyed.

    • American Pie (all of them)
    • Role Models
    • Blackadder (series 2-4)
    • Bad Teacher
    • Meet the spartans
    • Hall Pass
    • The hangover 1&2
    • The New Guy (my all-time favorite when i was a kid)

    So the humor has to be absurd, dirty, sarcastic and upbeat if possible. Can't wait to hear some recommendations!

    Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz are both hilarious, and I highly recommend them both. Simon Pegg and Nick Frost are priceless. :D

    History of the World, Part I
    anything by Monty Python
    Dogma

    Also, if you're a Terry Pratchett fan, I believe there are some film adaptations (both animated and live-action) of his books out there. I've seen Soul Music, and it's great. There's also Wyrd Sisters and Hogfather, which I haven't seen but want to.

    I would recommend Dr. Strangelove but it is not exactly upbeat. Eh, I'll recommend it anyway, it's awesome.

    Blazing Saddles is probably right up your alley.

    If you like Blazing Saddles, there's also Robin Hood: Men in Tights.

    COEN BROTHERS:
    * The Hudsucker Proxy
    * Fargo
    * The Big Lebowski
    * O Brother Where Art Thou
    * The Ladykillers (remake)
    * Burn After Reading

    FOREIGN:
    * Traumschiff Surprise, Periode One / Dreamship Surprise (German)
    * Steven Chow's Kung Fu / Kung Fu Hustle (Chinese)


    I never saw the entirety of Traumschiff Surprise, but when I did see it I was on a bus from Germany to Austria. The driver had my coworker apologize to me on his because there were no English subtitles, but I asked her to tell him I found the movie funny and easy to follow despite the language barrier. I don't know if you can find this movie in the U.S.

    Kung Fu Hustle was released in U.S. theaters shortly before I moved to Hong Kong, which was seven years ago TODAY!
