Wow!  Anchorman made #100.  That movie wasn't all that good.  Some of the movies in that list are questionable.  Shrek at #3 is just ridiculous.  Was a good movie and all, but should it be one of the funniest?

Why is European Vacation not in the list?  That movie was so funny, my sides almost split

I LMAO when I saw Harold and Kumar  ;D ;D ;D. 'School and Rock' wasn't that funny, Happy Gilmore was, though. But I would absolutely not agree with that ranking - there are so many films which should've been ranked much higher, and so many which should've been ranked much lower.

Yes why is Shrek rated so high?  Granted its a very entertaining film and I really enjoyed watching it.  But one of the funniest ever???

I would rate the top 10 as:

10.  American Pie (always imitated, never duplicated)
9.  There's Something About Mary  (Ben Stiller at his best)
8.  National Lampoon's Vacation
7.  Slapshot (to me this has the funniest single scene ever made when the Hanson Brothers make their debut)
6.  Office Space  (anyone who has ever worked in a corporate office can identify so well)
5.  Dr. Strangelove (Peter Sellers is BRILLIANT, how he could pull off three very different roles blows me away)
4.  Animal House 
3.  Blazing Saddles  (Mel Brooks' best)
2.  Caddyshack  (how could you not just about die laughing whenever Rodney Dangerfield or Bill Murray made an appearance)
1.  Airplane!  (this has to have more gags per minute than anything ever made)
