I recently watched Arrested Development for the 2nd time, and realized that I hadn't laughed so hard in ages. I've tried finding new comedy movies/series to enjoy since then, but haven't found any that really gave me any belly laughs like AD did. What movies/TV shows (or perhaps funny articles like from The Onion) made you laugh so hard you cried? Some of my likes/dislikes comedy-wise are inside. [more inside]
Looking for movies like Oscar, Big Trouble, Brain Donors, The Six Wives of Henry Lefay and Clue. [more inside]
Just saw and really liked The Lunchbox. What are some other quirky, intelligent, modern romantic comedies? International titles appreciated, but not at all necessary.
I need recommendations for movies or shows to watch with my boyfriend, specifically lighthearted goofy comedies and musicals. [more inside]
For our 10th anniversary, I'd like to present movie buff Gnik Nus with a list of sweet songs sung by the actors in modern (say, the last 30ish years) comedy movies. So far I've come up with "Tonight You Belong To Me" from The Jerk, "I Was Born To Love You" by Chevy Chase in Caddyshack, and "I Wanna Grow Old With You" by Adam Sandler, and Steve Buscemi singing 'This Much Is True" in The Wedding Singer. Bonus points for sweet moments and then something funny happens, like when Bernadette Peters pulls out the trombone while they're softly singing on the beach.
My wife and I greatly enjoy French comedies (recent examples inside). Netflix's proprietary Obfuscatron-4000 searching system has cleverly adapted to our viewing tastes by making French comedies difficult to identify and put in our queue. Can you recommend additional titles that are available on Netflix, either on disc or streaming? [more inside]
Please recommend me some recent non-English language movies/documentaries that are uplifting/inspiring/funny/have happy endings. [more inside]
Help me put together a rom-com bingo game! [more inside]
Help me find a movie or TV series like In The Loop or Four Lions (thanks askme, for that one!). [more inside]
What are the most classic, hilarious, cult-status non-English films? [more inside]
Please help me remember the name of a 1990s indie film director. [more inside]
Help me put together a fun YouTube playlist for a casual small party environment. Funny, short, smart. [more inside]
Can you name some good movies (preferably comedies) that are appropriate to watch with a nun? [more inside]
In light of the horrendously awful "I Now Pronounce You Chuck & Larry," are there any GOOD (i.e. both funny and non-homophobic) comedies about straight people either having to pretend they're gay or, more generally, about straight people slowly but surely letting go of their prejudices towards LGBT people? [more inside]
Cinephiles and Filmhounds! Recommend some great comedies for me based on what I already like... [more inside]
I'm wanting to download some comedy series off P2P. Any recommendations? [more inside]
