I'd include it. IMDB is currently listing it as a comedy:
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt7040874/
IMDb and their ever-changing genre listings. :blink: Anyway, I'll include it because the film did make me laugh quite a bit throughout, though I wonder if the genre listing will change on IMDb yet again in the next few days.

i. I actually saw A Simple Favor a couple of days ago and was unsure at the time about including it here (but now I will do so)
ii. I actually saw Casanova & Co. more than a week ago and listed it in the German/Austria Challenge but forgot to add it here

40. A Simple Favor (2018)

Image

Best known for directing a bunch of Melissa McCarthy comedies, Paul Feig includes a lot of humour in the proceedings here and while some of it is pretty silly (especially involving the other moms), most of the laughs work without detracting from the sense of dread and unease in the air. The film feels very Hitchcockian, but it is also knowledgeable of its roots with the protagonist even quoting Les Diaboliques in conversation. Blake Lively deserves a special mention as a noir femme fatale incarnate, and her costumes are simply breathtaking.

41. Casanova & Co (1977)

Image

Also known as Some Like It Cool, Sex on the Run and a bunch of other aliases, this Austrian comedy stars Tony Curtis as both the legendary Casanova and a lookalike. The pair find themselves on the run at the same time, with mistaken identity woes. The jokes works best in the first half when the lookalike does not even realise that the woman want him for carnal pleasure and not all of the gags work, with the anachronisms (FBI/CIA; American Express) backfiring poorly. The film gets good mileage out of its Some Like It Hot references though.

42. Paddington (2014)

Image

On one hand, Paddington is a simple fish-out-of-water comedy a la Crocodile Dundee with the awkward addition of a stereotype villainess. On the other hand, the film comes with much unexpected charm since most of the humour comes from the title character trying to act as polite as possible without realising what is and is not socially acceptable (at its funniest, Paddington drinks from the spout of a teapot directly after telling off Hugh Bonneville off for being rude). Matt Lucas, Peter Capaldi and Julie Walters are great too.

92. Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle (2017)
:lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: /10
This was actually quite a bit funnier than I expected it to be. I thought it was a fun time.

93. Libeled Lady (1936)
:lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: /10
Solid overly convoluted screwball comedy. Interesting to see Powell and Loy on screen in something other than the Thin Man movies.

94. Er ist wieder da (2015) a.k.a. Look Who's Back
:lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: /10
Both a funny fish-out-of-water comedy and a biting social satire in the vein of Borat but with Hitler in modern times with a surprisingly bleak ending.

95. Bienvenido Mister Marshall (1953)
:lol: :lol: :lol: /10
Eh... it was ok but I feel like this wasn't really up my alley.

96. Curious George Swings Into Spring (2013)
:lol: /10
My kids have been watching this at least once or twice every day for the last week. I've been tuning it out but decided to sit and watch it with them. Yea, this did nothing for me.

97. George Carlin: Jammin' in New York (1992)
:lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: /10
George Carlin can be funny but I felt like this one had too much topical humor in it to be really hilarious.

98. Song of the Thin Man (1947)
:lol: :lol: :lol: /10
Watching Libeled Lady got me jonesin' for some Thin Man. This was the final one in the series and probably one of the weakest. The mystery itself was fairly solid but I miss the booze-laced back-and-forth of Powell and Loy in the first couple. I feel like the kid decreased the quality of the movies.

99. The Adjuster (1991)
:lol: :lol: :lol: /10
Egoyan's weird, acerbic humor is certainly not for everyone but I liked the movie well enough.

100. College (1927)
:lol: :lol: :lol: /10
Amusing but one of Keaton's weaker films.

101. The Belles of St. Trinian's (1954)
:lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: /10
This one had its moments with a bunch of girl school delinquents in a horse racing scheme with Alistair Sims in drag. Quite an oddball wacky movie that probably influenced a lot of wacky British comedies like the Carry On series for years after.

102. Husbands (1970)
:lol: :lol: /10
Not actively humorous much of the time but with a naturalistic flow to it that feels very lived in like much of Cassavetes' work but without as much of the energy-draining pathos that comes with many of his films (not that it's devoid of it either).

This Ernst Lubitsch comedy is very visually arresting with most of the shots framed in shapes other than circles and rectangles; some shots look like kissing lips, others look like jagged lines and some even have borders like gaping jaws. The set design is magnificent too with ostentatious winding staircases, giant rocking horses and crazily large doors. Alas, amidst all this the central romance is pretty lifeless and the comedy does not always work (most gags involving mad scurrying) but there are amusing moments here - especially whenever Victor Janson is on screen

While the episodic structure here and plethora of protagonists sometimes works against the film (we never get to really know any of the characters in-depth), the bond and repartee between them always feels real and the scenes of them having fun together, especially at the zoo, feel very authentic. The strength of the film though is the gradual rise of its dramatic arc; one of the teens wants to go to college on a scholarship, much to the scorn of his friends, two of the teens become involved in car theft and so on, putting their futures at risk.

This is a film clearly written by writers who have never worked as a teacher or bothered to do much research; it is never once realistic how much the protagonist gets away with (e.g. only showing R-movies to her students all day) without parent objections or being called to account. The film improves as Diaz actually tries to be a good teacher with some really uncouth methods, including impromptu dodgeball - but at the end of the day this is just another film about a character gradually learning to care about others and find true love.

This horror comedy is mostly just a series of innovative deaths strung together. As such, the film is uneven in the non-body melt moments; a shoplifting scene is funny but has little to do with the plot, while a severed phallus is not-so-funny and has a absolutely nothing to do with the story. The gooey makeup effects are great though; lots of mobile, voyeuristic camerawork is a big plus too and the sound effects style music score is perfectly atmospheric. It's just a shame that the story is so half-baked and feels more like an afterthought to the effects.

Yes, it's a classic. Been lucky enough to record a mini season of Will Hay films from a UK TV channel. Think this is probably my favourite of the ones I've seen but there are hilarious routines in the best music hall tradition of rambunctiousness and irreverence in all of them.

Oh yes - I agree. I have seen most of Hay's comedies since they used to play a lot on late night TV down here. Ask a Policeman is my next favourite after Porter, but all are worthwhile. Graham Moffatt and Moore Marriott tend to steal every scene they are in their collaborations with Hay.

While Gloria Swanson's performance here does not come close to her best known turn (duh?), she brings appropriate zest and energy to this comedy. Highlights include Swanson juggling dishes (and accidentally flipping pancakes down blouses) at her restaurant, Swanson role playing with a stuffed toy dog, and Swanson engaging in a zany boxing match predating City Lights by more than half a decade. We are never shown what she sees in her beau and the film is pretty slow-moving in between the above mentioned highlights, but this is okay stuff.

49. Shamus (1973) USA 27 checks
Burt Reynolds II: Action comedy about a PI that gets hired by both parties in a case. Except for some onelines from Reynolds not particualrly funny.

Goldie Hawn IV: Western about show dancer Hawn hustling mormons. (At least that was the original plan. I kind of hope they would have followed that plot as that would probably be funnier)
52. Smokey and the Bandit Part 3 (1983) USA 282 checks
Burt Reynolds IV: The franchise should be familiar to everyone. If this was made in 2018 we could call this a soft reboot. Gleason returns, and Reynolds is just a tiny cameo, someone else plays the Bandit.

103. Forever (2018)
:lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: /10
This was a wonderful existential dramedy from Alan Yang, co-creator of Master of None, with a similar tone and pacing but with more heady subject. Just a wonderful series. Strongly recommended.

104. Spanking the Monkey (1994)
:lol: :lol: /10
Jesus... What an uncomfortable movie to watch.

105. Barfly (1987)
:lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: /10
Mickey Rourke was a pretty solid Bukowski surrogate in this offbeat flick that shambles along with an acerbic wit and streak of nihilism that's very typical of Bukowski's work. Like an ICM commenter mentioned though, WTF was with Rourke's Snagglepuss impersonation?

106. Hasan Minhaj: Homecoming King (2017)
:lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: /10
Minhaj has a very vital sense of energy that lends much of his comic storytelling style a hilarious punctuation mark amidst the pathos.

107. The Station Agent (2003)
:lol: :lol: :lol: /10
Languidly paced light comedy from Tom McCarthy with a great performance from Dinklage.

108. Irma Vep (1996)
:lol: :lol: /10
Much of this humor in this lies in the peculiar juxtapositions of the style of the film being made within the film and the more messy, fascinating reality surrounding it. Not terribly funny but an interesting movie nonetheless.

13. The General (1926) Fabulous, amazing! 9/10
14. Black Books TV Series (2000) Mean humor can be fun. 8/10
15. Slapshot (1977) Not surprised Paul Newman made a good film—and it’s got Strother Martin. 8/10

Total: 15 Points
SpoilerShow
1. Auntie Mame (1958) A showcase for Rosalind Russell but it includes a superb supporting cast and a wonderful script. 9/10
2. The Gorilla (1939) I'll watch anything with Bela Lugosi, and the Ritz Brothers are funny. 8/10
3. Some Like it Hot (1959) Wonderful. I love Curtis’ feminine voice. 9/10.
4. The World According to Garp (1982) Call me crazy, I don’t consider this film a comedy. It’s very good, just not funny. 8/10
5. They All Laughed (1981) Mildly, very mildly, entertaining. Ben Gazarra is not good looking enough or charismatic enough to captivate all these women. Bland script. 5/10
6. Girls Trip (2017) It’s not funny, it’s awful. 2/10
7. The Disaster Artist (2018) A well made film but I don’t want to laugh at Tommy Wiseau.
8. It’s a Mad Mad Mad Mad World (1963) Lots of insult comedy. Dozens and dozens of comedic actors and actresses. Mickey Rooneys’ character’s name is Ding Bell. I love, love, love, love it!

Playing an accentuated version of herself, Cher provides a terrific performance here and a The Producers style subplot with her is great. Unfortunately, it is over 40 minutes in between the conjoined twins meet her and great as the chemistry is between Matt Damon and Greg Kinnear, the film only has the most tiresome gags to offer at the expense of their condition. The film works nicely though when it focuses on Cher -- or Meryl Streep, who also has a significant cameo as herself -- and the film has some sweet things to say, but it is a little overly sentimental.

While there are some amusing moments to be had here, this is more of a drama than a comedy, and when the laughs come there is very little of the slapstick stuff that Buster Keaton did best. He actually provides a decent dramatic turn as he becomes the subject of manipulation and humiliation here, but the scattered funny sequences ultimately work better. Memorable bits include Keaton's failed attempts to get arrested during a police raid (to impress his girlfriend) and a Stock Exchange where he inadvertently gets his own back at those taunting him.

Much thinner and more agile than in his later years, W.C. Fields provides an energetic turn here that needs to be seen to be believed, running madly about and jumping up and down when hypnotised into believing that he is a lion. His hypnosis does not occur until over halfway in though and while there are some surefire laughs early on from how incompetent he is, it is much more fun to see Fields assertive - even if some his actions are much than a tad mean-spirited. The reactions of the supporting players to Fields throughout are priceless though.

Black Books is one of my favorite Brit coms, especially this first season which has me laughing nearly non-stop every time. The laughter calms a bit after that but there are plenty of funny bits throughout all three seasons. Hope you are enjoying it too!

41. Bo Burnham: Make Happy (2016)

I think that was my 10th rewatch of this (but first this month). We had some friends in town staying with us, and they'd never seen it. So we made them watch it. Still awesome, and I still love Bo.

There is certainly something interesting going on here as the husband (played with relish by Werner Krauss) is too distracted to notice that his wife (an equally well cast Jenny Jugo) is being romanced by others, but this single joke is pretty much all supporting the film in the humour department throughout. There are certainly some nice touches - most notably how crazed some of the title cards become as Krauss shouts at Jugo, but not quite enough to support a full feature length film. The conclusion feels a little too rushed too.
