    I have seen it.

    I really liked Arthur when I saw it in the theatre. I think I was in Jr High. Saw it on tv years later and was not as impressed.

    My dad really liked Benny Hill.

    Speaking of the late Dudley Moore:
    I found 1967's "Bedazzled" hilarious.
    Peter Cook and he provided great comedy and satire.

    Here's one that seemingly almost no one's ever seen.

    Roxanne (1987) (Steve Martin, Daryl Hannah) A modern retelling of Cyrano de Bergerac.

    I love this movie so much, I must've seen it well over a dozen times. (Yeah, yeah, I know.)
    I saw it and it was hilarious!
    Did you watch Dirty rotten scoundrels?

    No, I must admit that I've never seen that one.

    Planes Trains and automobiles. Pure funny.

    King of Hearts is a must see as well, intellectual humor about the fallacy of it all. French Town vacates during WWI , Inmates get out of an insane asylum and take over the town. Alan Bates.

    Bedazzled was quite a funny movie, holding up over time. Made in 1967, it is way better than the 2000 remake, which was really bad.

    Yes, I was about to reference that. Great film. (Martin and Candy genius).

    Two of my favourite films ever are; 'Still Crazy' and 'Withnail and I.' Both are comedic but there's plenty of pathos there; I must have watched both of them a dozen times, and I laugh and cry every time.

    Yes, the Y2K remake tried too hard to appeal to a new generation.
    It failed.

    Moore and Cook had great chemistry in the 1966 film "The Wrong Box" as well.

    Monty Python’s Holy Grail (I first saw it 35 years ago in the midst of the long and difficult labor—which I contend only makes it more ridiculous—and explains the twisty delightful quirks my daughter now displays in her personality)

    At different times I've thought something was really funny, then I've seen it years later and wondered why I thought it. What was funny then isn't funny now.
