It's movie night around the Davis household and Eric and I both feel like a comedy. So...this got us talking about our Top 5 favorite comedies of all time and I thought I would share my list. Let me tell you...this was a tough decision! But here it goes (with favorite quotes and all)...
5. Old School
Frank: "I told my wife I wouldn't drink tonight. Plus, I gotta really big day tomorrow."
(about 5 minutes later after Frank hits a beer bong)
Frank: "It tastes so good when it hits your lips. Whoo!"
Adam: "Are you qualified?" (to haunt their house)
Beetlejuice: "Ah...well...I attended Julliard. I'm a graduate of Harvard business school. I travel quite extensively. I lived through the Black Plaque and I had a pretty good time during that. I'VE SEEN THE EXORCIST ABOUT A HUNDRED AND SIXTY-SEVEN TIMES...AND IT KEEPS GETTING FUNNIER EVERY TIME I SEE IT. NOT TO MENTION THE FACT THAT YOU ARE TALKING TO A DEAD GUY. NOW WHAT DO YOU THINK? Do you think I am qualified?"
Jeanine: "Do you have any hobbies?"
Egon: "I collect spores, moles and fungus."
2. Dumb and Dumber
I don't have a quote that is funnier than the "Mockingbird" duet they sing in the car. I almost pee my pants every time I watch it.
1. National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation
This movie ALWAYS makes me laugh, even though I have seen it about a hundred million times. I am afraid I have to share three favorite quotes (even though I have about 50 on my list).
Cousin Eddie: "You surprised Clark?"
Clark: "Oh Eddie...if I woke tomorrow with my head sewn to the carpet, I wouldn't be more surprised than I am right now."
Eddie: "I don't know if I oughta go sailin down no hill with nothin between the ground and my brains but a government piece of plastic."
Clark: "You really think it matters Eddie?"
Clark (looking out his front window): "Oh, the silent majesty of a winter's morn...the clean, cool chill of the holiday air...an a**hole in his bathrobe, emptying his chemical toilet into my sewer."
I know that many of you won't agree with my Top 5 (Beetlejuice isn't a movie that most people consider one of their favorites). But I would love to know what's on your Top 5 Comedies list! Include quotes please :-)
