I got a good mind to join a club and beat you over the head with it.

Well the ones who bothered trying to guess the pictures that make up Solonor’s Five Pillars of Wise-ass Movie Comedy™ were dangerously close. So much so that I believe we are all a hive mind bent on assimilating you. (Relax. We’ll be benevolent masters, really.)

The rest of you should be ashamed of yourselves. How do you expect to make something of your life, if you don’t participate in pointless guessing games on a strange person’s weblog?

Man who catch fly with chopstick accomplish anything. Wax on… wax off…

Geekman was close, but he has had a problem with numbers since that incident with an certain actor who I will not mention by name. You tell him “five” and he hears “eight or more”. (Damn you, Gary Coleman! Damn you to hell!)

BitterKat missed it by that much when she tried to be funny and put Citizen Kane on the list. Ha. Ha. Very funny. I didn’t say musical comedy, Kat! Good grief.

Mike almost hit it with his second guess. However, he has a bit of a handicap in that he doesn’t know from funny. He was cribbing off the other two. Left to his own devices, he would probably have listed the first five Police Academy movies in the hope that one of them would be right.

The pillars of wise-ass movie comedy are:

Monty Python and the Holy Grail
Blazing Saddles
Young Frankenstein
Duck Soup

Other answers may be acceptable, but they would unfortunately be wrong. Thank you for playing. Come again.

    I so need a map because I’m as lost as a tick in a frying pan.

    Police Academy 4 is still one of the funniest movies I have ever seen. Er, what huh? Hey, WTH? Damn you and your mind control tricks.

  3. GeekMan says:

    Hey! First of all, the first five I mentioned were damn close to your top five with only ONE exception. And that’s only because you’re obviously mentally retarded in believing Duck Soup is funnier than A Night At The Opera.

    You STILL can’t fool me, there’s no such thing as a Sanity Claus.

    “Duck Soup” less funny than “A Night at the Opera”???

    Ladies and gentlemen… I think this takes in most of you… Who are you going to believe? Me or your own eyes?

    Duck Soup better than Night?

    It depends on your knowledge of whats behind them.

    Duck Soup.. great film which at the time, was poorly recieved (hey we were in between wars.. not a good idea at the time). Was the Marx’s last from Paramount.. and they thought it was thier last film as well.

    Night was another good film (now they were an MGM property), bigger budget, bigger production but less chaotic as they rehearsed the timing in local theatres prior to shooting. My problem with night is that at times it seems over-produced. But thats Irving Thalburg for you.

    Night also is what I see as the probable high point of the Marxes’ film career, as slow and steady decline of mediocre to forgettable films followed after. A Day at the Races isnt that great to me.

    Maybe it should be the six or the SEVEN pillars…like the seven wonders of the world or something.

    I would respectfully add:

    A Fish Called Wanda
    The Princess Bride

    I might even add Young Frankenstein…yah, beautiful knockers you have there.
