"Entertainment Weekly's fun list of recession-friendly films that'll have you in hysterics."

Not really sure about the recession tie-in but I've seen all of these except #24 (just not a Leslie Nielsen fan) and #25 (need to see this one). I love all the ones I've seen except for #2 (just not a Chevy Chase fan) but the other 22 are movies I watch over and over again.

Withnail and I is a comedy? I had no idea. It really had a bummer ending for a comedy.

My theory is that a comedy is the most difficult film to pull off. Without a strong, underlying story, the gags don't last for 90 minutes. The best film on that list (that is actually funny) would be When Harry Met Sally, imo.

I've seen When Harry Met Sally over 50 times. When Juannie and I first met while working at Blockbuster video, we watched it over and over again. I have stolen many lines from this movie including, "You are the dog." and "Thin. Pretty. Big tits. Your basic nightmare."
