    1978, but a damn good film nonetheless

     
  8. Planes Trains and Automobiles- 1987
    I LOVED that film - seen it too many times to find it funny anymore but I still chuckle at the bit when Steve Martin looks over at Jon Candy and he's turned into the devil.
     
  9. I have to be careful when watching Airplane! as sometimes I laugh so much I feel myself going faint.

     
  10. The poorly girl's face when the air hostess knocks her drip out with the guitar...the queue of people to beat up the panicking woman...the two girl guides fighting at the bar...the air traffic controlling and his addictions... must watch Airplane! again for the umpteenth time
     
  11. Agreed!

    (Still not arranged the buffet, btw)

     
  12. Any comedy with Leslie Nielson in it

    Naked Gun
    .......if I had to choose one it would be The Blues Brothers (mainly because of The Penguin and the Illinois nazis).
