    National Lampoon's Vacation

    Arthur (Dudley Moore)

    Pee Wee's Big Adventure

    Back to the Future

    Beverly Hills Cop

    Plane's, Trains and Automobiles

    The Blues Brothers

    Trading Places

    Weird Science

    Ferris Bueller's Day Off

    Ghostbusters

    History of the World Part I

    Annie Hall

    Bananas

    (Some of the Wood Allen movies are great).

    The Pink Panther (Peter Sellers)

    Oh, God! (George Burns...A comedy with a purpose and great story).

    Car Wash (Richard Pryor)

    Friday (A little newer but still old school)

    Barbershop

    Harlem Nights

    48 Hours (Eddie Murphy)

    I also agree that you can't leave the classics like: Airplane, Caddyshack, and Meatballs of the list.

    However, don't forget The Breakfast Club and Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure.

    Damn, that sucks that "Jaz Iz Me" had a growing list of movie suggestions since I last posted. A few of which include titles that I posted which were not originally listed by him. To me, this is not so much about the points as it is about the integrity and ability to post my own original thoughts/ideas without "assistance." Although I admit the points make it fun, but only when I post original thoughts and don't copy.

    Pretty much every Mel Brooks' movie is hilarious (but you gotta love that kind of humour).

    Airplane!

    Caddy Shack

    All Monty Python movies (you have to understand British comedy to like these)

    The Great Outdoors

    it's very late right now, so my mind can't think as fast as I would like it to.

    But definitely Mel Brooks' movies.
