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.

Monty Python and the Holy Grail is a 1975 British comedy film written and performed by the comedy group of Monty Python, and directed by Gilliam and Jones. It was conceived during the hiatus between the third and fourth series of their popular BBC television programme Monty Python's Flying Circus. In contrast to the group's first film, And Now for Something Completely Different, a compilation of sketches from the first two television series, Holy Grail was composed of new material, and is therefore considered the first "proper" film by the group.

Caddyshack is a 1980 American sports comedy film directed by Harold Ramis and written by Brian Doyle-Murray, Ramis and Douglas Kenney. It stars Michael O'Keefe, Chevy Chase, Rodney Dangerfield, Ted Knight, and Bill Murray. Doyle-Murray also has a supporting role. This was Ramis' first feature film and was a major boost to Dangerfield's film career; previously, he was known mostly for his stand-up comedy. Grossing nearly $40 million at the domestic box office, it was the first of a series of similar comedies. A sequel, Caddyshack II, followed in 1988, although only Chase reprised his role and the film was poorly received. Caddyshack has garnered a large cult following and has been hailed by ...more on Wikipedia
