Untitled — 3 years ago

the list fails without “1,2,3” Cagney at his best!


Lacking — 4 years ago

Too much Cary Grant and Woody Allen, no Adam Sandler or Jim Carrey… you might not like Sandler but to not give either one of them a single nod on this list??


My Bad,didn't see them there. — 4 years ago

Young Frankenstein & Blazing Saddles


What about Mel Brooks movies — 4 years ago

Blazing Saddles? Young Frankenstein?


Topper correction — 5 years ago

Replaced #60, “Topper/Topper Returns” with “Topper.” Topper Returns was not on the AFI list.


Sherlock, Jr. — 5 years ago

Replaced the combo version of Our Hospitality/Sherlock, Jr. with only Sherlock, Jr. to better reflect the original list.


leslie neilsen — 6 years ago

how come none of the naked gun movies aren’t here? they are the funniest. he is so funny for someone his age.


The Dude Abides — 6 years ago

a) men died in Nam, face down in the dirt just so we can have good commedies on this list.

b) what about what about bob? Is that American?


Need to include Joe Dirt — 6 years ago

Joe Dirt is a classic
