This round-up of top comedy movies includes gross-out comedies (Dumb and Dumber, South Park: Bigger, Longer, and Uncut), comedy parodies (Spaceballs, This is Spinal Tap), teen comedies (American Pie, Superbad), and plenty of British humor (Monty Python and the Holy Grail, History of the World: Part 1). Whatever you think is the best kind of comedy movie, it's here for you to vote on in this list of the best comedy movies.

What are the best comedy movies ever? What are the funniest movies to watch? This list is here to sort out the "HAHA" funny films from the "ha." movies that are kind of funny, but not so much. Don't see your favorite comedy movie on the list? Make to add it to this list of the greatest comedy movies so that other people will have the chance to laugh as hard as you. If you see a supposedly great comedy movie that you think stinks, make sure to vote it down to the bottom of the list of the greatest comedy films.
