    Perhaps WatchMojo needs to revisit the dictionary and look up the word 'comedy'. At least half the films on this list do not belong here and if that is the case what are the replacements? Watchmojo might try going beyond the limited scope of understanding and realise that comedy began before the 1960s – try examining the Marx Brothers, Buster Keaton or the Road pictures with Bob Hope. To include Peter Sellers 'Pink Panther' efforts as a HM is incorrect. What about some of Cary Grant's exploits such as 'Operation Petticoat' or 'Arsenic and Old Lace'? However, all is not lost – the inclusion of Dr Strangelove, Animal House, Blazing Saddles, Caddyshack, Airplane and Life of Brian helps although Animal House stretches it. Next time consider even 'Silent Movie', 'American Pie' or 'Toy Story'.

    What?! Some Like It Hot is only an honourable mention? Come on. Austin Powers is good, but it's not better than Some Like It Hot. Not even close.

    I think that technically speaking Dr. Strangelove is considered a dark comedy so maybe it shouldn't even be on this list. It's still on my list as one of the greatest movies ever made.

    It's difficult to narrow this list down to a mere top ten without pissing some off (esp when their favorite is not even mentioned ). Each decade has provided viewers with its classic comedies and mega laughs. This top ten list may officially be accurate, still so there are many who have their very own favorite list.

    My 3 favorites :
    1 Plains trains and automobiles
    2 What about Bob
    3 Office Space

    Superbad doesn't belong in the Top 100 let alone ahead of Dr Strangelove, and Anchorman is aging badly because few people will know what a news anchor was in 30yrs in the era of apps/text alerts…:(
