- Revenge of the Nerds.
- Porkies.
- American Pie.
- Police Academy - especially the guy that makes all of the sound effects.
- Mrs Doubtfire
- Anything with Whoopie Goldberg.

You forgot 'Faces of Death.'

I think I laughed maybe like 4 or 5 times.

Rip off.

im with ya except for American Pie.

while i wouldnt call it a classic or anything, i generally found it funny, and before it was fucking beaten to death, the BAND CAMP scene made me spit out my soda in the theatre...

just a girl... said...

Agree with all but American PIe. And I have never understood Police Academy

I would have to agree with you on this list...although I agree with the others about american pie...it was some what funny...until they just started making too many...sometimes they just need to leave things alone and be happy with one

Movies that are supposed to suck but are funny:

- Grease 2
- Showgirls
- On The Right Track (a Gary Coleman joint)
- Cabin Boy
- Most Troma films
- The Passion of the Christ (Mel Gibson)

I've actually never seen the last one but it seems like a safe bet.

Movies that got passed over, but are really funny:

Idiocracy

I find them funny the first time, then after that, not so much.

miss*H said...

I thought police academy was pretty funny when it first came out but then I was only about 10?!

American Pie though (the first one, the others are pants) I found funny when it fisrt came out and still do now and I don't usually find american comedy films funny as the humour is too obvious and toilet (except those with will farrel in)

Please add to the loist ANYTHING with jim Carrey in it. He makes me want to claw my eyes out...stupid goofy man!

Debbie said...

Yes. I think you are correct on all of these.

I liked Revenge of the Nerds

Samsmama said...

"Ghost" was supposed to be funny? I had no clue.

Dr Zibbs said...

Beckeye - you like John Travolta so you've already lost cred.

Shelle-BlokThoughts said...

WOW... I need to record this day on my calendar because i actually agree with you! :)

Florida Girl In Sydney said...

I agree about anything with Whoopie Goldberg sucking. But American Pie???

Kimberly said...

Ms. Doubtfire was funny...come on!

Dr Zibbs said...

Shelle Blok - don't lie. You agree with everything.

Vivienne said...

I don't know... "Say my name, Bitch!" coming from the Band Camp Girl was pretty funny.

But yes, everything else.

Prunella Jones said...

If I was high enough I could probably summon up a chortle for those movies, but yeah...it'd take a lot of weed.

Andrew Rodriguez said...

I usually feel alone in having the opinion that Steven Spielberg's best work was the movie, "1941".

I'm also often alone in life as well....

Former Fat Chick said...

What no love for Lambada Lambda Lambda and Omeaga Moos?! WTF! Ok, I was 13 and they showed it on HBO non-stop, Revenge of the Nerds has a special place in my heart. That shit movie American Pie I tried to watch and gave up after 15 minutes, and I think Dude Where's my Car is GENIUS! and then...

Fancy Schmancy said...

Obviously you weren't one of us nerds! But I'd also like to suggest that Napoleon Dynamite be added to that list. I hate that movie with a passion. Also Dumb and Dumber and Ace Ventura.

Girl Interrupted said...

I'd add:

Scary Movie
Hotshots (however many awful parts there were)
National Lampoon movies (except Animal House)
Anything with Chevy Chase or Rodney Dangerfield in

Organic Meatbag said...

Agree on all counts...
