Comedy is a very personal thing. You probably have different ideas to me of what is funny. This post is a response to a discussion I had with a friend on our favourite comedy movies. I included two iconic Australian films (Crocodile Dundee and The Castle), British films by Monty Python and Rowan Atkinson (Mr Bean), and American films by Robin Williams, Mel Brooks and Mike Myers.
Crocodile Dundee (Paul Hogan) – 1983
The Castle (directed by Rob Sitch) – 1997
Life of Brian – Monty Python (1979)
Mr Bean’s Holiday – Rowan Atkinson (2007)
Good Morning Vietnam – Robin Williams (1987)
Mrs Doubtfire – Robin Williams (1993)
Blazing Saddles – Mel Brooks (1974)
Parody of Western movies.
Spaceballs – Mel Brooks (1987)
Parody of Star Wars, Alien and Planet of the Apes.
Flying High (Airplane) (1980)
Wonderful parody of disaster movies.
Waynes World – Mike Myers (1992)
