16. Baby Mama (2008) Perfectly pleasing. 8/10
17. Manhattan Murder Mystery (1993) Absolutely hilarious—a terrific Woody Allen film. 10/10
18. Dinner at Eight (1933) There is not one funny moment in this film. I don’t know why it is designated as a comedy on imdb. A straightforward drama from George Cukor. 6/10

Total: 18
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!
10/10.
9. Sex and the City (2008) Lovely. 8/10
10. Sex and the City 2 (2010) Lovely. 8/10
11. Cactus Flower (1969) A riot—“Let’s have some of that crazy Idaho champagne!” 9/10
12. Seven Chances (1925) Made me a Buster Keaton fan. I need a turtle for my tie. 9/10
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

117. The Little Hours (2017)
:lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: /10
This oddball anachronistic comedy loosely based on parts of The Decameron was surprisingly engaging with a great cast that starts slow but builds to a prety chaotic climax.

118. The Break-Up (2006)
:lol: :lol: /10
Very few laughs to be had here, it focuses more on the depressingly real aspects of a relationship crumbling apart, and Vince Vaughn's character in particular was just so aggressively unlikable that the movie gave very little to hold onto.

119. Bad Moms (2016)
:lol: :lol: :lol: /10
It was ok but very predictable with a terrible, sappy ending. Also Kristen Bell was sadly underused.

120. Volver (2006)
:lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: /10
Much of the humor in this was one was dark in nature or tied to hysterics with the film playing like an out-sized soap opera, which I'm sure is how Almodovar intended it.

121. Jimmy Carr: Funny Business (2016)
:lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: /10
Like a British version of Anthony Jeselnik, Carr can be very funny but also like Jeselnik, he seems to get off on just being offensive whether it's funny or not. Also, WTF is up with his laugh?

122. James Acaster: Repertoire: Reset (2018)
:lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: /10
Another James Acaster set, this one involving a honey supplier scam and the joys of witness protection with his usual absurdist humor on full display. I enjoy this guy quite a bit.

123. Mister Roberts (1955)
:lol: :lol: :lol: /10
It acts almost like a precursor to films like Jarhead and Three Kings, showing the side of war rarely covered, the ennui and boredom brought about waiting for something big to happen. The crew of a naval ship get into many shenanigans, enabled by Cargo Chief Doug Roberts played by Henry Fonda. It's very much a kind of hangout movie in a similar vein Ford's much more well-known Rio Bravo and while a pleasant time, it's not something I'll remember a year much of a year from now.

124. Head (2015)
:lol: /10
What could've been an amusing/interesting premise (muppets plunked into an old school slasher) is let down by bad writing, terrible acting and listless, uninspired direction. The whole thing reeks of amateur hour.

125. Cheech and Chong's Next Movie (1980)
:lol: :lol: :lol: /10
Like it's predecessor Up In Smoke, this movie rambles along from scene to scene with little in the way of glue to hold it all together, more playing out like a series of sketches all involving the same characters instead of a single coherent movie. Regardless it still manages to be intermittently funny (I still snicker at the "Mexican Americans" song despite how stupid it is).

126. The Hoodlum (1919)
:lol: :lol: /10
This was just too broad at times even for a silent comedy.

127. Bridget Jones's Diary (2001)
:lol: :lol: /10
Isn't she just so quirky and unlucky in love? And that stuffy ol' Colin Firth... And that cad of a Hugh Grant!? It's all so... predictable and dorky. But I will say Zellweger does have a certain charm to her.

This was the first film that Langdon directed and alongside the pitiful The Chaser, these early directing outings are said to have killed his career. Three's a Crowd is nowhere near that bad though. Langdon turns in a very human and sympathetic performance with plenty of pathos, but it is not a particularly funny film. There is a great bit where he falls through a trap door and a surreal dream sequence is on the mark, but the laughs are pretty scarce, resulting in a film that is a little too downbeat for its own good.

Amusing moments come here from W.C. Fields inadvertently smashing other cars, his failed attempts at suicide and golf mishaps. Only around half the gags work (Fields hiding by pretending to be a cow is pretty lame) but this is generally a fun poke at how who you know can change how others perceive you. As an actor, Fields lacks the energy he would bring to Running Wild one year later, but he does okay as the indignant would-be inventor. There are some cool cinematic techniques at hand, especially the ear close-ups as rumours are whispered.

45. Kick-Ass (2010)

This is pretty fun if you don't think about, but pretty horrifying if you do. But I have a really hard time ignoring the CENTRAL PLOT POINT that some really fucking crazy gun- and revenged-obsessed whackjob has kept his 11-year-old daughter sequestered from mainstream society for the last six years training her in ways to murder people who may or may not be associated with the guy who sent her dad to prison.

46. Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (2005)

It was fine - but I didn't feel any magic to it. It all felt manufactured to me, like the focus was on making something look cool rather than creating a world that inspired wonder.

But on the plus side, that last film there got me platinum on the ICM Most Checked list! :banana: :banana: :banana:

Also known as the original version of The Sound of Music, this earlier adaptation of Maria von Trapp's autobiographical book stars Ruth Leuwerik as the singing nun who inspires the kids in her care to appreciate music. There are some strong scenes early on as Leuwerik asserts herself and insists on the children having fun. The kids themselves though lack personality and are very interchangeable. The romance between Leuwerik and the Baron also comes out of nowhere with limited chemistry. This is a sweet film, but little more.

Congrats. That's my lowest ranked list, though I'm only 5 away from a Silver Award. Too bad most of the films on the list don't match my taste in film.

75. $ (1971) USA | West Germany 69 checks (aka Dollars aka The Heist)
Goldie Hawn XII: I didn't even know about this one before this challenge, but digging up her filmography I found her 3rd collaboration with Beatty and this is probably the best one. Snatched I get next week, and The One and Only, Genuine, Original Family Band, The Out-of-Towners and Viaggio con Anita I can't find at the moment. So I'm done with Hawn for this challenge.
76. The Big Sick (2017) USA 2 official lists 3 716 checks
Comedy that takes up difficult issues. Good they don't all have to be dramas.
77. The Break-Up (2006) USA 1 official list 22 339 checks
Aniston tries to get Vaughn jealous during a break-up.
78. The Darjeeling Limited (2007) USA 2 official lists 20 112 checks
Three brothers take a spiritual trip in India.
79. To Have and Have Not (1944) USA 15 official lists 4 922 checks
Not really a comedy. Just qurky remarks between Bogart and Hepburn. But the story is a war drama.
80. (s1c) Muppet * vision 3-D (1991) USA 1 official list 936 checks
Probably much better to see live. The story are extremely simple, to fit all audiences. This is basically a gimmick movie, regardless of them making fun of that fact.
80. (s1d) Porklips Now (1980) USA 1 official list 118 checks
Based on what you can find on youtube today this should not be on any list. This is just an amateur parody film.
81. Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again (2018) UK | USA 1 official list 655 checks
It's fun, but all song seem so malplaced in the story. I'd rather see the story about Stellan winning the Greatest Swede Award. (Also auto tuning Abba songs sounds terrible)
82. Cherry 2000 (1987) USA 1 official list 548 checks
A robot malfunctions and a man has to get help to go into dangerous territory to find the same model.

Official list progress:
+9 Film Comedy 54%
+6 The 100 Greatest Comedies of All Time (BBC Culture) 84%
+4 AFI's 100 years...100 laughs 80%
+1 Comedy (imdb) 90%

The 4 week Comedy Challenge Update

4 weeks down and 48 hours to go!

Rank Participant Count PB
1 (1) flavo5000 127 127
2 (2) psychotronicbeatnik 76 FT
3 (-) albajos 75 75
4 (-) sol 68 FT
5 (4) allisoncm 55 55


The two first has been leading the pack from the start, but there are still a lot of competition in the rest of the top 10. Every post change the rankings. From #6 to #10 it's still just 10 points.

Currently we have beaten all records of the previous challenge: Top score, participants, total amount of points and average/participant. If there are any new participants the last two days, the average might drop down though.

1 new participant last week so we have now gained 991 points split between 34 viewers. That is a 29,14 average. The average viewer would be at #14 in the ranking

10/34 of this year's participants was also in the challenge in 2016. 7 have now beaten their Personal Best. At least 1 of the last 3 should be able to beat or tie their score in the final days.

With the Silent challenge running now, there are many silent comedies seen several times. One of the most popular ones is Chaplin's The Pilgrim. Other movies seen by many are A Simple Favor (2018) and Meyer aus Berlin (1919) for example.

But on the plus side, that last film there got me platinum on the ICM Most Checked list! :banana: :banana: :banana:
Congrats. That's my lowest ranked list, though I'm only 5 away from a Silver Award. Too bad most of the films on the list don't match my taste in film.
I'd love to say I agree with you, but the films there clearly matched my taste in the past, as it was the only silver award I had when I joined ICM. I've been slowly trying to get through that list with what patience I have for it, generally working out to 2-3 films/month as they would qualify for the challenges. And since the Charlie in the Chocolate Factory DVD that I requested from the library for the 1990s-2010s challenge finally came in, I figured I should go ahead and kill it.

22. Up the Sandbox (Irvin Kershner, 1972)
23. A Thousand and One Nights (Alfred E. Green, 1945)

I love Arabian Nights adventures, ever since I was a kid and had a no doubt heavily expurgated/edited little paperback of some of the most famous stories - Aladdin and Ali Baba for sure, maybe some others, and one of my proud possessions today is an early edition of the complete Tales in the Burton translation, which of course just sits on the shelf like an ornament...anyway, my experience with this stuff in movies started with seeing the ''24 Thief of Bagdad in college, on the big screen, and over the years I've seen an awful lot of middle eastern mythologies, mostly mediocre if I'm honest. Usually I tend to like the ones that take it mostly seriously, but this ended up being a very pleasant exception, a comic foray that's one of the better examples outside of Hajji Baba. It helps to have really terrific Technicolor, and to have a guy like Cornell Wilde as the swashbuckling hero Aladdin ("of Cathay"), and I think it also works well to have most of the comedy supplied by two actors - Phil Silvers as Aladdin's best buddy Abdullah, and Evelyn Keyes as the genie in the bottle, smitten with Aladdin herself. I mostly know Keyes from her noir roles so this was a nice surprise, she does comedy quite expertly. There are a lot of points of comparisons that could be made here with Henry Barakat's 1949 Egyptian musical comedy Afrita Hanem, especially in that comic, lust/lovelorn genie character, and I wonder of Barakat or his co-writer Abu Seoud El-Ibiary might have seen this? At any rate both films are splendid fun for anybody interested in the less serious side of the genie in the bottle.

24. The Brass Bottle (Harry Keller, 1964)

Another comic genie story, this one was a direct inspiration for the I Dream of Jeannie sitcom which premiered the next year and which starred Barbara Eden - here the fiancee of our hapless hero Tony Randall - as the title character. In this rather average film, Randall is a struggling architect at risk of losing both his job and Eden - whose father hates him for his formerly wacky behavior while living in Paris - when he opens a large bottle - a would-be gift to future father-in-law - and out pops ebullient genie Burl Ives, who insists on continuing to help Randall despite innumerable protestations and ever-increasing disasters. Randall and Ives are two actors that rarely go wrong and they certainly keep this watchable but the sitcom-esque situations got pretty tiresome to me and it's entirely predictable. Could be worse for sure but not one of the finer hours for either actor.

25. My Dinner With Andre (Louis Malle, 1981) (re-watch)

I didn't see this when it came out - I was in high school in a podunk town and i'm sure it never played there, nor would I have been interested in it at 15-16, but I think I did see it sometime in the 80s - my memory sure was dim and I remembered only a few moments vaguely, apart from the end credits use of Eric Satie which for whatever reason made a huge impression on me at the time (and still does). Never boring but I do think there are times when Gregory's stories verge on the irritating, and I"m not sure that there's all that much to the whole "normal" versus "ecstatic" versions of life that Shawn and Gregory are expounding on. And yet, somewhere around the last half hour it really starts to grow on me in some emotional way and when it finished I was hoping that it would last a while longer; perhaps this is the point where I'm starting to connect with each performer/character nearly equally, and wishing that one person could contain all of the abundances on display. In the end I don't think it's quite brilliant, but I am happy to have had the experience again and likely won't wait 25-30 years to revisit.

26. Schuhpalast Pinkus (Ernst Lubitsch, 1916)

More early Lubitsch, with the director starring as a good-for-nothing student (college I guess though it was rather unclear, almost as unclear as the picture in this low-res YT viewing) who gets thrown out and decides to go to work, eventually ending up as a shoe salesman and then owner of his own company. Lubitsch here is playing sort of a prankster-bad boy and he does better with this than he did with his merchant Meyer character in Meyer aus Berlin but the film just isn't that funny and it ends in a strange sentimental way that seems at odds with the broad near-slapstick that we've been watching. Thankfully it's short, and thankfully the director got a whole lot better soon.

27. Hollywood Shuffle (Robert Townsend, 1987) (re-watch)

Saw this and Townsend's subsequent The Five Heartbeats new in the cinema, and then he vanished, at least as far as I knew; rather amazed that he's directed half a dozen films since - the only one I was aware of was Meteor Man. I guess this, his first feature, was predictive of his career in some ways, though he certainly has stayed working and has also done documentaries and lots of TV work as an actor, director, producer and writer. But he never really hit it BIG and some of the reasons why it's probably been a harder road for him than it might have been for some of his white contemporaries are on display in this sometimes tough, sometimes fairly gentle (maybe too gentle) satire of the situation black actors find themselves in, trying to make it in Hollywood. It's a rough and unpolished film all right but as with the best of the blaxploitation era that precedes it, that's part of it's charm. I find pretty much all of it amusing though some bits are certainly better than others - to my mind the highlights are the film noir parody and the Siskel and Ebert critique. A better soundtrack and perhaps a stronger ending and a little less sentimentality might have made this totally brilliant but it's still pretty darn good and I'll have to finally look into more of Townsend's stuff now.

28. Becoming Charley Chase II - 14 + 16 + 10 + 10 + 12 = 62 minutes
a) He Wouldn't Stay Down (Ford Sterling, 1915)
b) Married to Order (Charley Chase, 1920)
c) At First Sight (J.A. Howe, 1924)
d) One of the Family (Scott Pembroke, 1924)
e) Just a Minute (James Parrott, 1924)

More Chase, with the last three of these being early examples of his "Jimmy Jump" series, where he's playing a relatively consistent character - a middle-class, or perhaps aspiring middle-class young man who regularly gets screwed over by those above him and those he's trying to impress, typically in part through his own bad decisions but also through fate, While they're certainly still comedies these do have a bit more pathos than the earlier films and even a little bit of class-conscious satire and criticism. The last of this bunch features Jimmy as a car salesman who is about to get married but only gets an hour off to do so - and then has that hour eaten into when he has to show off a new model the mayor, who proves a very difficult customer and in the course of one reel costs our hero his job, his fiancee and most of his dignity. Still can't say I'm bowled over by Chase but I'm becoming a bit more interested now, and the Jimmy Jump character has at least a little bit of that special quality we find in the silent greats, Harold Lloyd in particular, though Chase lacks Lloyd's acrobatic grace.

An appropriate film to watch on Sunday morning. tehe While this then-experimental movie relies on non-actors, their scenes together often seem rehearsed and the two men are dislikeable jerks. As such, the film succeeds best when it does not concentrate on its protagonists. There are some great, sweeping shots of various citizens just going about their Sunday business, particularly on the beach. The film has some excellent low camera angles (camera placed on the floor) too and the shots taken from on the water are quite innovative.o comes out of nowhere with limited chemistry. This is a sweet film, but little more.

128. Book Club (2018)
:rip: /10
An incredibly hacky script brings four older women together to read Fifty Shades of Grey in a book club and causes them to reignite romance in their lives. So incredibly generic and lacking in humor that I was constantly bored.

129a. La paura degli aeromobili nemici (1915) a.k.a. The Fear of Zeppelins
129b. Double Crossed (1914)
129c. Shakhmatnaya goryachka (1925) a.k.a. Chess Fever
:lol: :lol: :lol: /10
A trio of silent comedy shorts, I'd say Chess Fever is probably the most entertaining of the three.

130. Curious George (2006)
:lol: :lol: /10
This was a significantly better Curious George movie that Swing Into Spring with real talent doing several of the voices (Will Ferrell, Drew Barrymore, David Cross, etc.). It also had some very nice animation.

131. Dave Chappelle: For What It's Worth (2004)
:lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: /10
Not a bad stand-up special with some really funny jokes, but Dave just wasn't as funny as he is now.

132. The Front (!976)
:lol: :lol: /10
This was a pretty interesting movie about HUAC being paranoid dicks (aren't they all?). Woody Allen was surprisingly solid in this.

133. The Patsy (1964)
:lol: :lol: :lol:
Basically using a premise of Lewis becoming a lip sync pop sensation at the behest of the record company but essentially playing out like a nearly plotless showcase for a series of Lewis bits. Lewis has some genuinely funny gags in here but much of it just gets a little old after a while..

134. Judah Friedlander: America is the Greatest Country in the United States (2017)
:lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: /10
Mostly crowd work, you can tell Friedlander has been doing this quite a while. Funny stuff.

This film benefits from a more solid plot than the average Marx Brothers comedy as Chico's unrequited crush pretty much drives the story and as expected there are some very funny moments (most notably the pick pocketing of $5 bills and horse race at the end). Many gags backfire though. The selling of code books sequence in particular drags for too long to be funny. The story is also unwisely interrupted by lots of random dance sequences and Harpo and Chico playing their favourite instruments. Margaret Dumont as always shines though.

25. My Dinner With Andre (Louis Malle, 1981) (re-watch)

I didn't see this when it came out - I was in high school in a podunk town and i'm sure it never played there, nor would I have been interested in it at 15-16, but I think I did see it sometime in the 80s - my memory sure was dim and I remembered only a few moments vaguely, apart from the end credits use of Eric Satie which for whatever reason made a huge impression on me at the time (and still does). Never boring but I do think there are times when Gregory's stories verge on the irritating, and I"m not sure that there's all that much to the whole "normal" versus "ecstatic" versions of life that Shawn and Gregory are expounding on. And yet, somewhere around the last half hour it really starts to grow on me in some emotional way and when it finished I was hoping that it would last a while longer; perhaps this is the point where I'm starting to connect with each performer/character nearly equally, and wishing that one person could contain all of the abundances on display. In the end I don't think it's quite brilliant, but I am happy to have had the experience again and likely won't wait 25-30 years to revisit.
This might be a weird connection, but Community did an episode that was a loose parody/homage to My Dinner with Andre - and I really liked that episode, so the film has been on the outskirts of my watchlist for a while. Interesting to read your comments - they pushed the movie up the watchlist a bit...

Image

Not all of the puns work here with silly, sped-up footage and much physical humour in the mix, but the story has its fair of amusing moments as the younger sister's beau goes to extremes to ensure that her older sister marries. The biggest sell-point here though is the amazing casting of Henny Porten as both the older and younger sister. With minimal makeup and costume differences, Porten makes herself seem like two separate women just from the way she moves her arms and contorts her face. Emil Jannings is always welcome, but this is Porten's film all the way.

72. Romeo und Julia im Schnee (1920)

Image

As Ernst Lubitsch's take on Shakespeare's classic tragedy, this silent comedy is undeniably curious for novelty value alone, but as a narrative it is unsatisfying. The focus is never on the romance with the title characters not meeting until there is less than 26 minutes left. Instead, we get plenty of scenes of the families comically feuding (sticking out tongues at each other; throwing snowballs) and Juliet has a simpleton suitor who she has to dodge - a character whose mental handicap is awkwardly played for laughs. The subverting of the poison-taking plot is really good though.

And that will do me for this Challenge. :sweat: Thanks for hosting, albajos! Loved the weekly progress reports. :poshclap:

Congrats on moving into 2nd place, albajos! :cheers:
Thanks, I didn't really have a watchlist for this one except for Flying Circus. And I'm still waiting for the Carry On box set in the mail (30 movies) so I had to improvise more or less everything else.

83. Viva Las Vegas (1964) USA 1 official list 1 036 checks
84.Sleuth (1972) UK | USA 4 official lists 6 240 checks
85. Relatos salvajes (2014) Argentina | Spain 5 official lists 6 220 checks
86. Abbott and Costello Meet Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (1953) USA 2 official lists 392 checks
I'll write a few words later.

Official list progress:
+10 Film Comedy 54%
+6 The 100 Greatest Comedies of All Time (BBC Culture) 84%
+4 AFI's 100 years...100 laughs 80%
+1 Comedy (imdb) 90%

In challenges like these my first goal is to see the top 5 unseen comedies based on off. lists.
After that it's basically open season.
So I have seen 23 feature films and one short from 1976 because of the unofficial birth year challenge. But there are too many sex comedies that year it became a bit boring after a while.
I've seen 12 of Goldie Hawn's comedies. Mostly stuff from the 70s which I'd almost never heard of before.
After Burt Reynolds dies I also saw 5 of his comedies. But I have seen his best comedies earlier. All these were more on serious topics just with quick remarks.
I finally completed Flying Circus after buying it in 1999. And really wanted to complete Black Books as well, which was the funniest one this challenge.

So at least some fun were to be had. :thumbsup:

This was pretty funny to see the Tramp in the military, but the antics started to wear on me after a while.

48. Four Weddings and a Funeral (1994)

This was hilarious - different types of humor throughout with subtle jokes carrying the film. I thought the understated gay relationship in there was poignantly understated to help normalize it in the early 90s. And this was probably going to be rated high up my favorites list if not for the end.

He literally leaves his fiancee at the altar because some woman he's been hung up on said she got divorced. I thought it was lazy writing and largely turned me off of an otherwise fantastic film.
49. The Pilgrim (1923)

I found this one underwhelming - not a lot going on that amused me in the slightest.
