    All these threads got me thinking.Whats some of the funniest movies you have seen?

    Monty pythons "the holy grail" and "life of brian".Ive seen these quite a few times and still laugh.The ending is utterly ridiculous.

    So what movies make you laugh?

    I recall the first time I saw Mel Brooks movie "Young Frankenstein".

    It was in a movie theater full of people that were all the same age as me at the time.

    Perhaps it was because we were all in sync, but something just clicked with us...

    ...I laughed so hard that I thought I was going to hurt myself.

    Deep, deep, deep, belly-rolling, gut-busting, open-faced, guffaws of sheer delight. I had tears rolling down my cheeks. My face hurt afterwards.

    Again, like I said at the beginning, I think a lot of it had to do with the fact that the entire theater was full of people who were all having a rollicking good time - together...in unison. In this case, the sum of the whole was definitely mightier than the sum of the parts?

    In other words, I believe that the reason that this was such an enjoyable experience was because it was a shared experience of like minded people.

    AND -on the other hand - it is a pretty funny movie. Especially considering that if you take into consideration the precise time that it was first released. Before the release of "Young Frankenstein" entirely too many films in the "horror genre" tended to try to take themselves a bit too serious. "Young Frankenstein" was a familar theme that most people had already been exposed to before. So, it was a complete surprise to sit and watch a "horror flick c-o-m-e-d-y". The theme was familar. The presentation was somewhat disorienting. But we caught on very quickly. The audience quickly figured out that Mel Brooks was poking fun at the outlandish seriousness of the genre. And the humor was welcomed with splitting sides.

    Speaking of Mel Brooks...

    History of the World Part I and Robin Hood: Men In Tights were absolutely hilarious!
