Team America World Police (made by creators of south park, very funny)
Zach & Miri Make a Porno
The Hangover
40 Year Old Virgin

and its not a movie its an HBO series and its a GREAT show, i recommend checking it out if you havent seen it, its called

Eastbound and Down, about an Ex-pitcher who moves back to North Carolina and teaches gym at a local school, it stars Danny McBride as the main character (Pineapple Express, Hot Rod, Tropic Thunder etc)

I know its not a movie but i feel like its a comedy thats worth mentioning.

That movie ruled. I've got alot of favorite Westerns though.

Dirty Harry is a favorite of mine too. When Scorpio is on the bus, and you see Clint standing on top of the bridge, you know it's on.

The scene where Aidan Quinn's character redeems himself at the end is a really emotional deal for me. That and the notion of a woman being like water is to the stone.

I've done one of these lists before........I think probabaly my favorite ever is Casablanca. Past that, Legends is up there....Fabulous Baker Boys....Heathers.....The Wind And The Lion....Guns At Batasi .....Oddly, An Officer And A Gentleman is up there as well.

I am more of a fan of the classic martial arts movies. Enter the Dragon is easily my favorite, but I like a lot fo late 80's and early 90's martial arts movies. I know they're cheesy, but I liked Blood Sport and the Quest a lot. Van Damme could kick some ***. Also a big fan of Chuck Norris. :up:
