25 Funniest Movies Since 1983 ?

So Entertainment Weekly has a new list of the 25 Funniest Movies Since 1983.

Their lists are always good for some argument. What do you all think ?

I created a bit of a rebuttal over at my place, but I thought I'd drop the puck here as well and see what you think about their list and/or my list.

Truth is stranger than fiction


After I left a comment at JodieKash's place, (thanks for the pic Jodie) I thought it might make for a film discussion about art imitating life or the other way around. This wackjob's life seems to be a combination of Katy Bates in "Misery", and Stephen Kings "Pet Semetary". How many other nutters are either influencing film, or have been influenced by film for strange and bizarre acts?

In Memory of Grace and Sam Masoudi

Grace is the little one in the front wearing the pink shirt in the top photo. Sam is the dark-haired boy in the gray sports camp shirt in the bottom photo.

They were killed Monday morning when a small plane crashed into the house they were renting with their family on the Oregon coast. Grace was 8. Sam was 12. They were beautiful, wonderful children from one of the most incredible families I've ever known.

We'll miss them terribly.
