List Rules The comedy movie must be primarily set in Paris.

Because it's such a fun and glamorous city, comedy movies based in Paris offer a lot of enjoyment. It's often entertaining to see funny, crazy, or silly things taking place in a location most of us equate with luxury or style. There's a nice contrast between the inherent beauty of the city and whatever wild antics the characters are engaged in. Comedy films showing some of the most famous Parisian landmarks are especially popular. Many of them make use of the Eiffel Tower, the Louvre, or the Arc de Triomphe. These places are inherently cinematic.

Paris also offers a rich history which is taken to its comedic limit in Midnight in Paris. Now it is time to determine the funniest films set in Paris with the help of your votes.
