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).
