Looking for witty movie recommendations.

I was compiling a list of favorite movies recently, and realized that many of them fall into the same camp – dialogue-heavy, convoluted movies, with a light tone, but generally a darker subject matter. For example, high on my list were the recent movies In Bruges
and Kiss Kiss Bang Bang
and the older The Lion in Winter
and The Philadelphia Story
. Many of the movies by Tarantino, Mamet and the Cohen brothers also make the list, though they don’t always have the same lightness of touch. So can anyone help me broaden my horizons with other well-written films?
