List RulesVote up your favorite time travel movies that are intentionally hilarious.

What year is it? Or better yet, what time is it? It's time to decide on the best time travel comedy movies. These are the funniest films to feature time travel. Not all of these time travel comedies use time machines like Groundhog Day and About Time. Other films on this list use unconventional time machines such as Back to the FutureHot Tub Time Machine and Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure. But which of these funny movies deserves to be in the top spot. Also, keep in mind that these are purposefully hilarious time travel movies and not movies that are funny because they are so bad.

Vote up your favorite time travel comedies and vote down the films you hope get lost in the space-time continuum. If you don't see your favorite time travel comedy on the list, feel free to add it, then check back to see what other fans thought of your addition.
