After viewing a number of so called greatest comedy movies of time lists and found them incredibly inadequate I decided to make a list of my own. Since comedy is very relative ( what might be hilarious to some might be boring or revolting to others ) I comprised this list from dozens apon dozens of polls, surveys, and blogs around the internet. I'm sure not everyone will agree with this list, if you feel a movie has been done a terrible injustice please coment below. Feel free to vote on the movies you love or against the movies you feel don't belong and the rakings will reflect your votes, and thank you for visiting.
