HAHAHAHAHA.
Laughter is the best medicine they say. While it might not literally cure you from a disease, it does help us get through harsh times. So now the world looks still so dark and even more hopeless, it's a perfect time to enjoy our 300 Favorite Comedies.

Please feel free to discuss the list, the films, and any entries that you're happy or unhappy about, whether you submitted a list or not, but please try to be courteous when doing so. When quoting a post with images it's best if you remove the image unless it's directly relevant to what you're posting.

Wow didn’t realize Hercules Returns was so underseen :/ can’t even remember how I found it now absolutely hilarious and I usually hate Aussie comedy.

Well, it looks like a film from the 60s, but it says 1993 ... is that intentional?

Surprised at Bill & Ted being as low as it is - and given that the sequels aren't typically regarded as well, I guess they won't be showing up. I was wondering if it's one of those films that only Americans like, but the list of voters doesn't show that. Huh. Then again I wouldn't have included it until I re-watched it a year ago, I guess for me it's becoming something of a nostalgia pick (plus, time travel, which automatically grants it bonus points).

We should do a time travel poll. I always enjoy that stuff as well, even though it often leaves many plot holes.

I'd love a time travel poll. Generally, I'm in favor of doing polls on more niche topics with shorter lists.

Shorter lists? I already have this

https://www.imdb.com/list/ls020615486/

Then again that's all the time travel films I'd seen as of when I last updated the list that aren't totally awful - I'm sure I'd cut 1/3 to 1/2 of them if we did a poll. But yeah, could be fun, although I suspect the results would be extremely predictable (he says, realizing that the same could be said for...just about every poll here).

The premise is that a cinema is given a copy of some 60s Italian film without subtitles so they ‘Adlib’ a dub over it. So most of the film is the 60s film footage but the dialogue is new.

Oh yeah, that's really more apt I suspect, though it looks like from reading a couple of reviews that it's a bit of it's own thing. Definitely looks like something I could like, but I wouldn't want to bet on it.

Watched this for the first time a couple years ago, so no nostalgia factor for me. It was overall fine, but what soured me quite a lot was several uses of the F word slur for laughs...not really a funny joke for me, and while I know it was more a product of its time, even 1989 seems a bit too late for people who’s creed is “be excellent to each other” to be using this for laughs. I try not to police comedy as a rule, but the discrepancy between the niceness of the characters and the harshness of that word left a bad taste I couldn’t escape.

Having just watched the 2nd movie a couple weeks ago for the sci-fi challenge. I was glad to see that the only characters to use the slur in that one were the evil robot Bill and Ted, so, progress! If I was a betting man it doesn’t appear at all in the 3rd one :P

Oh yeah, that's really more apt I suspect, though it looks like from reading a couple of reviews that it's a bit of it's own thing. Definitely looks like something I could like, but I wouldn't want to bet on it.
Ye more similar to that though I haven’t seen Tiger Lily. Haven’t seen it in a long time so I’m not sure who would be into it.

The only joke I remember is when a chicken is in shot and then is obviously ushered/scared off to leave the shot and it‘s like ‘aww shit missed me cue’. Died laughing.

I was wondering if it's one of those films that only Americans like, but the list of voters doesn't show that. Huh. Then again I wouldn't have included it until I re-watched it a year ago, I guess for me it's becoming something of a nostalgia pick (plus, time travel, which automatically grants it bonus points).
Watched this for the first time a couple years ago, so no nostalgia factor for me. It was overall fine, but what soured me quite a lot was several uses of the F word slur for laughs...not really a funny joke for me, and while I know it was more a product of its time, even 1989 seems a bit too late for people who’s creed is “be excellent to each other” to be using this for laughs. I try not to police comedy as a rule, but the discrepancy between the niceness of the characters and the harshness of that word left a bad taste I couldn’t escape.

Having just watched the 2nd movie a couple weeks ago for the sci-fi challenge. I was glad to see that the only characters to use the slur in that one were the evil robot Bill and Ted, so, progress! If I was a betting man it doesn’t appear at all in the 3rd one :P
You are right and I had forgotten that part - now it comes back to me that I really noticed it on re-watching it, though I'm not sure how much impact it made on me in 1989. Some, I think. Always a tricky thing, as you say, "policing" films - particularly comedy - and intentions aren't always clear in the use of certain language, particularly decades down the road. I think by 1989 the n-word was largely gone, at least you couldn't have white characters use it easily in a comedy - even in 1974 when Mel Brooks uses it in Blazing Saddles, he was careful to use it only for a certain kind of impact. But gay jokes were slower to go away for sure.
