My Top 5: Comedies

Mel Brooks made some hella funny movies, but this one has always made me laugh no matter how many times I watch it.  Favorite quote: "So, Lone Star, now you see that evil will always triumph because good is dumb."

2. Clue

Who knew a board game could be converted into such a hilarious movie?  I'd like to see Monopoly try.  Favorite quote: Colonal Mustard: "This is war, Peacock! Casualties are inevitable. You can't make an omelet without breaking a few eggs, every cook will tell you that." Mrs. Peacock: "But look what happened to the cook!"

One of Bill Murray's best roles.  I really don't care much for Andie MacDowell, but even she can't ruin this classic for me.  Favorite quote: "People like blood sausage, too... people are morons."

4. Soapdish 

If you've never seen this early '90s movie, you have no idea what you're missing.  The all star cast includes Kevin Kline, Sally Field, Robert Downey Jr., Elizabeth Shue, and even a cameo by Carrie Fisher.  Favorite quote: "I don't think you realize how serious this operation is.  You will not have a brain when it is complete!"

The talented Peter Sellers plays three different characters in this crazy, beautiful mess.  Just thinking about it makes me want to watch it again.  Favorite quote: "Gentlemen, you can't fight in here! This is the War Room."

*This is no one's rating but my own.  I am interested to know what you think, so please discuss!
