The Worst Ranking of the 100 Best Comedies of All Time

This is the definitive list of the 100 best comedies of all time. Don’t worry about all those other rankings who fawn over Chaplin (sorry S. H.) and jizz all over Some Like It Hot. That shit just ain’t funny anymore. Was it important in the history of comedy? Sure. But giving a whiskey as an anesthetic for amputation was significant in the history of medicine but you don’t see modern doctors singing its praises.

I know. I know. That was a shitty comparison. I’ve only got an hour for lunch! They all can’t be winners!

So these movies just make me happy and laugh a ton. A few might not technically be classified as comedies but they’re funnier than most of the pablum being passed off as comedy today (recent exception being The Rock’s Jumanji – can the man be more beloved or do no wrong? Shit just because he’s in it I’m going to go see Rampage!).
