suicide kings
when they ask how you feeling
you tell em you feeling like something important died screaming
you tell em you feeling like something even more important arrived breathing
something you should probably try feeding

Funniest:

Clerks
Caddyshack
Easy Money

The movie that I've watched more than any other, and it drives my wife crazy, is Blue Crush. I know it's a teeny bopper film, but surfing and Kate Bosworth, yum yum

Sorry Patriot, I could not sit all the way through any of the ones on the list. Guess i have a strange sense of humour. My fave? Snatch, oh and the original Italian Job. "Tommy, the tit, is praying, and if he's not, he F'ing should be"

I like Monty Python's sketch comedy a lot, but their feature length stuff is mindbendingly slow. Sure, there's a few funny bits in there, but they are far better at short-attention span entertainment.

Good one Sorcerer Snatch is hilarious, as is Lock, Stock, and two Smoking Barrels. Another one not mentioned yet is the Big Lebowski.
What about Fast Times at Ridgmont High?

I voted for the Jerk, but I think our clear winner has to be Blazing Saddles

I suppose so. You mean you couldn't even watch ONE of those movies all the way through??? Because you might want to sit down and try it again they are all fantastic movies (excluding the jerk, I HATE THAT MOVIE!).

And whoever says Python's movies move to slow isn't thinking fast enough...perhaps their just too clever for you.

I'm hoping this is in the "it's so bad it's funny category"?

My personal favorite is Kingpin. It's the last movie I cried at. Bill Murray is a comedic genius.

Ground Hog Day is pretty good too.

Actually Monty Python and the Holy Grail appears to be the winner.
