Here’s a short list of the movies that can instantly make me guffaw till I choke, no matter what scene I tune into at random:
The Producers. Even the more recent musical version.
Sleeper. A Woody Allen masterpiece, on a par with Chaplin, but more nebbishy.
Groundhog Day. I could re-live it over and over.
Some Like It Hot. Though some would like it better if it had been a little shorter.
The Women. Duh.
Glitter. No, wait, let‚s stick to movies that are intentionally funny.
Which ones make you spit up your lunch in hilarity?
