Top 5 Comedies...According to Jen

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!"

4. Beetlejuice

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?"

3. Ghostbusters

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 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 :-)


  1. Haha! We love Christmas Vacation and Dumb 'n' Dumber also! Definitely in our top 5! My list would never be complete without Napoleon Dynamite:

    Napoleon: "Do the chickens have large talons?"
    Farmer: "What?"
    Napoleon: "Do the chickens have large talons?"
    Farmer: "I don't understand a word you just said."

    Napoleon: "It took me like three hours to finish the shading on your upper lip."

  2. Hahah, I am huge fan of most these. I would have also excepted Anchorman. Great post. Have a great weekend.

  3. I love comedies!
    5. Little Miss Sunshine
    "No one gets left behind!"

    4. The Hangover
    "Would you please put some pants on? I feel weird having to ask you twice."

    3. Old School
    "Honey you think KFCs still open?"

    And this is a tie:
    1. Anchorman
    "I'm kind of a big deal. I have many leatherbound books and my apartment smells of rich mahogany."

    1. Super Troopers
    "Okie Dokie silly okio. I'm an idiot."

  4. Harold and Kumar go to White Castle
    -"did doogie howser just steal my fucking car"

    Super Troopers
    -"How's it going Denim Dan? You look like the president, chairman, and CEO of Levi Straus. Hey where'd you get the Canadian tuxedo?"

    The Hangover (there are 2)
    -"Remember what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas. Except for herpes. That s***'ll come back with you."
    -"counting cards isn't illegal, it's just frowned upon.. like masturbating on an airplane"

    -"The guys either going think ‘here’s another guy with a fake ID’, or here’s McLovin, 25 year old Hawaiian organ donor"

  5. Oh my gosh....I forgot about SO MANY of my favorites!!!!

    Napoleon Dynamite Carly...good call.
    "Napoleon...don't be jealous because I have been chatting online with babes all day."

    Super Troopers
    The ENTIRE Meow scene. Hilarious!

    I also love Anchorman and Superbad. Good call ladies! I could have made this list my Top 50 I think. HA!
