    Nice list. I disagree and would have not had Dumb and Dumber, or Ace Ventura, Pet Detective and would have included Tootsie and Blazing Saddles instead,

    • Cody October 9, 2013 at 6:03 am #

      Completely agree with Blazing Saddles but I would’ve replaced Monty Python Holy Grail. I believe the Holy Grail is anointed as the “Holy Grail” of comedy but it is simply mediocre.
