MY TOP TEN COMEDY MOVIES

My top ten comedy movies
Not what I consider the best-I think that comedy is possibly the most subjective of the arts-just my favourites. I've limited my selection to only one movie per Director or Star and while I love Laurel & Hardy I am a big fan of their shorts not so much their features but I had to find space for them, likewise I think the Marx Brothers are great but find their movies have stretches of dullness. So here is my selection.
1.Young Frankenstein
2.Love and Death
3.The Nutty Professor (1963)
4.Animal House
5.Airplane
6.The Life Of Brian
7.The Man With Two Brains
8.Sons Of The Desert
9.Happiness
10The Odd Couple
