    It seems like you should try some Mel Brooks movies to fit your Screwball Comedy theme, i.e. Spaceballs, Robin Hood: Men in Tights, etc.

    But it also seems like you like feel good movies. I love watching older movies, such as most Audrey Hepburn movies.

    I would also recommend La Belle Vita, or Life is Wonderful. It's Italian, so you would have to watch it with subtitles, but it's a thouroughly good movie. Also, try watching Some Like it Hot, with Marilyn Monroe. It's a very funny movie with one of the best endings.
