This week’s Thursday Thirteen comes to us from Elliott Hurst, CEO SoCast.

Knowing I’m not much of a movie guy, Elliott has provided me with a list of the 13 best comedy movies of ALL-TIME!

So grab the popcorn, put on the earphones and hope no one is calling you and let’s go!

In no particular order.

These comedies are amongst the best of all time, I have selected them based on how many memorable moments/lines they have in them to truly make them classics:

1. Office Space

2. Blazing Saddles

3. Superbad

4. Animal House

5. Groundhog Day

6. Ghostbusters

7. There’s Something About Mary

8. Bridesmaids

9. The Breakfast Club

10. Planes, Trains, and Automobiles

11. Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy

12. Annie Hall

13. Christmas Vacation



Honourable Mentions

14. The Big Lebowski

15. South Park: Bigger, Longer, Uncut

16. The Hangover

17. Young Frankenstien


Sadly, I have seen three or 4 of them…

Do you agree with Elliott’s list or not?  Who makes your list for best comedy with the most memorable lines?

    Office Space is definitely on my Top 10 list. I’d have to put the first three Kevin Smith movies on that list as well. They are watershed Gen-X movies for sure, though I do know that Kevin Smith is not everyone’s style. But Office Space is classic. I work in that field, and though the Y2K crisis is long over, way too many tech workplaces still resemble the one portrayed in Office Space.

    Speaking of Mike Judge, I’d have to put Beavis and Butthead Do America on my Honorable Mentions list. I saw it in the theater on opening week, and it was fantastic. The 21st century B&B is okay, the story lines anyway, but I feel that they sound too “intelligent,” i.e. too much like Daria when they critique Jersey Shore et. al. B&B worked better when they were critiquing the MTV lineup of yesteryear – you remember, the one that was actually MUSIC TELEVISION? ; )

      Geez… I forgot all about B&B. I hated them. I never got their humour. I do remember MTV when they actually played music before they became a brand.

    I object that “The Princess Bride” is not listed

      I have actually never seen it. I didn’t know it was a comedy… Isn’t Andre the Giant in it?

    Great list. I have seen most of them. I would have to put The 40 Year Old Virgin on there some where.

      Good to hear. When Elliott sent me this list I have to admit I have seen very few of them, but 40-year-old virgin I did see and that was a VERY funny movie!

    Great choices! “Office Space” is awesome! What about “Dumb and Dumber”?


    • Urban Daddy August 29, 2012 / 1:58 pm

      I have not seen Office Space but I think I have to now… As for Dumb and Dumber, I did see that movie and it was hilarious. Good point!
