    Just read in another thread breifly mentioning 40 year old virgin and I really want to watch a new pure comedy film such as that.

    So I'm open to suggestions, whats your favourite comedy film? New an maybe unheard movies would be good aswell aslong as they're hilarious.

    Few I've seen:
    40 year old virgin
    Anchorman
    Dodgeball
    Wedding Crashers
    The longest yard
    Mr Deeds
    Meet the parents/fockers

    few others but I wont list them all. Just to give an idea of the comedy I'm after.

    just watch Mr Deeds again as it's great. you seem to be a fan of my 2 favourite cliques...Mr. Sandler's clique and Mr. Stiller's clique.

    watch:
    Old School
    Big Daddy
    Happy Gilmore

    You need a higher class of comedy. Those films are all very funny, but they're american humour. Its quite visual, quite obvious. They're like the "Friends" series in movie form, what you need is something like "Curb Your Enthusiasm" or "Arrested Development" in film form, imo :)

    Naked Gun series (okay, obvious comedy but done BRILLIANTLY)
    Lost In Translation (quietly funny)
    Monty Python

    :)

    Dumb and Dumber's a classic and missing from your list!
    We thought 40 Year Old Virgin was dreadful - and all those American Pie type films with irritating American student types.

    arrested development was totally the best show on tv last year! None of my friends or family really "get" it though, and think its rubbish.

    i havent seen Naked Gun for ages. everytime i go into HMV, i'm like "must buy the box set" and i always come out with something else! :rolleyes:

    I didnt get Lost in Translation...we switched that off about about 3/4 of an hour. though i cant decide if that was to stop me looking at SJ's boobies

    It's the funniest thing to come out of America in years. My mate has Season 2 on DVD, and it's just side-splittingly funny :)

    I was pretty bored by Lost In Translation. I thought SJ's character was pretty poorly developed, and you didn't seem to really be shown much about her. She seemed to contradict herself in terms of motivation/direction/actions at points too which just made her feel false. Bill Murray is great in it, and SJ acts well, but there's not too much she could do about her character really I guess. It's alrite, but nothing special. My dad loved it because he's done the whole sitting on the side of the bed in Japan on business trips thinking "What the hell am I doing?". I, on the other hand, didn't :p

    I think LiT does revolve strongly around the ridiculousness (sp?!!) of the situation he's in, and the loneliness and alienation you can feel.

    BUT WHAT DOES HE SAY AT THE END? Argh it drives me mad! Iknow tyou're not supposed to be able to hear, but still!

    Shut your mouth.

    It's because she looks like her face has been stretched. (I wouldn't say no, but that's a different matter :p)

    In keeping with the other American Psycho thread, I'm gonna have to quote Bateman: "She's practically perfect looking" :)
