Ah, comedies. God's gift to the human mind and to his laughing lungs. According to a scientific study, a good 10 second laugh is like a solid 15 second sprint. So let's get healthy, folks! Watch some movies!

Just the rankings...no reasoning behind them will be added except for the top movie. Feel free to give your take as well

Number 20: Life Of Brian - Monty Python

Number 19:
Young Frankenstein

Number 18: There's Something About Mary

Number 17: The Princess Bride

Number 16: The Jerk

Number 15: Napoleon Dynamite

Number 14: Ferris Bueller's Day Off

Number 13: Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan

Number 12: Some Like it Hot

Number 11: Animal House

Number 10: Raising Arizona

Number 9: Rushmore

Number 8: The Blues Brothers

Number 7: Blazing Saddles

Number 6: Ghostbusters

Number 5: Duck Soup

Number 4: Tootsie

Number 3: M*A*S*H

Number 2: Airplane!

Number 1: ...drum roll...Monty Python and the Holy Grail

This choice may be an odd one seeing as it has always been a huge cult classic. But, for me at least, there's never been a movie that has made me laugh more. It's enduring comedy has made it even funnier now than it was when I first saw it.

What'cha think?

Tootsie? MASH? Airplane? Monty Python? Is this the Top 20 Comedies for those over the age of 40? Weak.

No, sir, it's not.

Read some previous posts and you will see that we already discussed this. I am probably not that much older than you (as I said around page 6 or 7) and I do like some of the newer comedies that I've seen. I just find it hard to put in movies that I suppose you would like such as Knocked Up and Superbad (am I right about that assumption?) because they've only been out on DVD for a couple of months!!

So I ask you this, how many of these movies have you, personally, seen?

And, yes, Spaceballs had some great lines. But the overall movie? Not that impressive.
