The Top 10 Comedy Movies

Here is a list of the 10 very best comedy movies ever made. Everybody likes to laugh and these comedies have a lot of laughs in them.

1. Dr. Strangelove or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb
Directed by Stanley Kubrik. Peter Sellers plays three roles in this zany comedy about attempts to avert a nuclear holocust. It doesn't seem like the best subject for a comedy, but it does a great job portraying the stupidity of the situation.

2. Monty Python and the Holy Grail
The british comedy troupe (Graham Chapman, John Cleese, Eric Idle, Terry Gilliam and Terry Jones) is at their best about this gem about King Arthur and his nights on the quest for the Holy Grail.

3. Modern Times
Charlie Chaplin genius is showcased in this classic side-splitter; he wrote, directed in and starred in the hilarious comedy about a man caught up in the industrial age.

4. Singin' in the Rain
What a Glorious Feeling! Gene Kelly (who also co-directed) stars in this feel-good movie full of dancing and romance and has a top notch supporting cast.

5. Some Like It Hot
This comedy is a mad-cap farce starring Marilyn Monroe, Tony Curtis, and Jack Lemmon at their very best. Directed and co-written by Billy Wilder.

6. Mr. Smith Goes to Washington
This Rrank Capra directed picture starring James Stewart is about an idealistic boyscout leader who is appointed Senator and must deal with a corrupt Washington government.

7. The Apartment
This is the second movie in the list for director Billy Wilder, this time he again works with Jack Lemon. Shirley MacLaine plays opposite Lemon in this romantic comedy which is one of the last great black and white films.

8. The Sting
The great duo of Robert Redford and Paul Newman star in this movie about con men set in 1930s Chicago. The film has serious undertones to it, but at its surface is bright and funny.

9.Forrest Gump
This Robert Zemeckis helmed film, starring Tom Hanks took home six oscars. The main character has a chance to interact with America and it's history during this fable-like movie.

10. The Incredibles (Widescreen 2-Disc Collector's Edition)
The Incredibles is the only animiated film to make the list and is also the most recent one. This film about an undercover family of superheroes works well for audiences of all ages.
