    .....that would be guaranteed to make you laugh almost as much as when you first saw it, what would it be.

    For me, it would be My Cousin Vinny.

    (and no, you don't get two or more choices, just one)

    Reefer Madness, viewed about about one a year to see if I am over doing it. Seeing that I am not nearly as high as the folks in the movie I just keep trying for another year.

    Definitely My Cousin Vinny....No matter how many times my Dad and I watched that movie he would always laugh so hard he'd have trouble breathing.......my mother would hear him, get super aggravated and would have to turn it off because of his heart condition. Then we'd all laugh harder......

    This thread and this post.....I'm heading over to the Random Thoughts.....

    TOTLLY relate. There are only a handful of times where I laughed so hard that I literally had tears running down my face and watching My Cousin Vinny was one of those times.

    My pick is one of those classics from the mid '60s "A funny thing happened on the way to the forum" For some reason it never fails to get me laughing 'til it hurts.

    "Let It Ride" would be my pick.

    Richard Dreyfuss as Jay Trotter, Teri Garr as wife Pam, and David Johansen as fellow cab driver Looney. Movie was released in 1989, long before Uber. I've seen it many times and am ready to watch again. I do like Vinny too; but more for sexy Marisa Tomei than the "two youts" line.

    Whoever paired up Pesci and Tomei should get a lifetime achievement award. Their chemistry and how they played off of each other was just brilliant.

    Young Frankenstein, Mel Brook's genius of a movie and his career best effort IMO.

    I don't even know what scene to pick as best....certainly there is always "walk this way"

    Click to play YouTube Video


    Or perhaps "give me a hand with the bags"....'ok, youtake the blonde, I'll take the one in the turban'

    Click to play YouTube Video


    or the entire scene with the blind hermit

    Click to play YouTube Video


    And really any scene with Marty Feldman or Madelaine Kahn. They were true comic geniuses (as was Gene Wilder). Peter Boyle was GREAT as the monster.

    I still almost wet myself seeing this one.

    all good choices but my top pick, having seen it dozens of times is 200 Motels. If you're not aware of it it's Frank Zappa's best movie starring Ringo (as Frank Zappa), Flo and Eddie, Theodore Bikel, Keith Moon. On some level every time I see it it's like seeing it for the first time and it's funny as hell plus completely trippy and surreal.
