    Sorry that was 11 movies, couldn't keep it to 10. LOL.

    My favorite COMEDY movies I put in a different top 10 as I can't compare them with drama or action movies - for me they have their own category - my favorite comedies not necessarily in this order are :

    2. Blazing Saddles

    3. The Cable Guy

    4. Dumb & Dumber

    5. Life of Brian

    6. The Princess Bride

    7. What About Bob

    8. Young Frankenstein

    9. Meet the Parents

    10. High Fidelity

    So that's a close synopsis of my list give or take. LOL

    Thanks Flipper and everyone else! Lots of great movies.

    Yes, I think Jaws was a fantastic movie, too!

    There's obviously no right or wrong answer here.

    If you like a movie, say it (and maybe why you think it's great).

    Sorry that was 11 movies, couldn't keep it to 10. LOL - well, that's still pretty good going.

    I find I can do a good top ten of something (fav films, fav horror movies, fav comedies) but anything more is too much. The other day, I tried to work out my fav top 30 horror films, and I had great difficulty. I love the horror genre but it was difficult. Some of the films I was naming would fit into a top 100 (although I don't think I know 100 horror films, let alone have seen them!). In the end, I had to settle for my fav top 15 horror films.

    As far as comedies go, I like Red Dwarf, The Office and Extras (last two by Ricky Gervais). Not feature films but pretty darn good.

    Keep em coming, guys, all replies welcome!

    Best: Sixth Sense; Pride and Prejudice; Sense and Sensibility

    Worst: Lady in the Water; The Village; Signs

  • Londo111

    I loved Sixth Sense. But then I loved Signs. I thought the Village wasn't bad.

    But Lady in the Water is one of the worst movies I've ever seen. Shylaman lost me after that.
