OT: Good Comedies

Submitted by rastafari on April 21st, 2011 at 6:32 PM

I just finished rewatching the movie "What About Bob?'. I forgot how good of a comedy that was.

I need more suggestions for comedies. Good ones. I want to roll out of my Lazy Boy and wretch my stomach muscles.

We are entertaining a group of about 12 and have headlined the party as "A night of Comedy". We have loaded the bongs and prepared REALLY good food.


We need IDEAS for good DVD Comedy and we need this from the likes of MgoBlog. So, please rummage thru your wonderful brains and come up with a comedy or 2.


Thank you for your consideration. Blessings!

Another stoner movie would be Pineapple Express, besides that all of the other choices have been good.

Kingpin is a classic, hadn't seen it mentioned yet.


I also enjoyed zombieland.


Umm...oh yea, "theres something about mary" is a good one also, with a young Cameron Diaz in it.


Oh and duh, Pulp fiction.

The bowling flick with Woody Harrelson and Randy Quaid.

Rat Race except for the last bit - and especially all the Jon Lovitz stuff.

Best In Show and anything really by Guest - even his commercials are funny.

Eddie Murphy in Nutty Professor part 1 - all roles.

Bernie Mac standup (OK not a movie).

Tattoogate: 5-star hilarity, hope it never ends.

EDIT: Doh! MichFaithful beats me to Kingpin by a nose!

Dumb and Dumber, Airplane! and The Big Lebowski.  Not mentioned about are Dr Strangelove and Duck Soup, two great black and white comedies that are hilarious, though probably not the best comedies to watch while high.  

Maybe funniest movie I've seen though in the so bad it's funny: Plan 9 from Outer Space.  Brilliant stuff there

The Naked Gun: Nice Beaver!  Thanks, I just had it stuffed

Airplane!: Surely you must be joking.  I'm not, and don't call me Shirley.

The Big Lebowski: Shut the f*** up, Donny.

Strange Brew: This movie was shot in 3B - three beers - and it looks good, eh?

Grosse Pointe Blank: I'm a professional killer.  Do you have to do postgraduate work for that?

Roy: Hey, I hope you don't mind, I got up a little early, so I took the liberty of milking your cow for you. Yeah, it took a little while to get her warmed up, she sure is a stubborn one, whew.
[Takes a drink from the bucket]
Mr. Boorg: We don't have a cow. We have a bull.
Roy: I'm gonna brush my teeth

Easily Hangover.  It's one of the best comedies of the last decade.  So is Team America,

Borat, Tropic Thunder, Forgetting Sarah Marshall, Role Models, Elf, and Superbad are among my current favorite comedies.  I also love Wedding Crashers, Dodgeball, I Love You Man, Knocked Up, Beerfest, Harold & Kumar.

You guys mentioned What About Bob...And Zombieland...and no one even thought to mention Ghostbusters?

BTW...You have to be a little twisted, but Bad Santa caused significant rib pain for a week.

Caddyshack, Airplane!, Vacation, Stakeout, Something about Mary, A Fish Called Wanda, Stripes, Clerks.

All classic comedies.  The pinnacle of comedy was in the late 1970's through 1990's.

For later comedies, you gotta go with Analyze This, Zoolander, Anchorman or Semi-Pro.

Great thread.

The Jerk is possibly the best movie you can get if you are stoned... It is classic, and you probably havent seen it in a while, or ever, but you will laugh, and laugh, and laugh.

I like The Other Guys too, was pretty good. The Hangover is great, but Ive seen it about 400 times.

Quite possibly the funniest movie I ever saw stoned, and a first time viewing, was Superbad. That shit had me crying. Thats also in The Hangover category, seen about 400 times.

Happy Gilmore and Billy Madison are great. Super Troopers and Beer Fest are awesome, made by the same people. Step Brothers is way under rated, as someone already said, but great to watch while stoned.

I guess if I had to pick one movie, while baked, it would have to be The Jerk.

You really cant go wrong with any of these suggestions. Mgobloggers seem to have some good taste in Movies. I'm surprised no one has mentioned this one yet though, or maybe I missed it, but if your going to get stoned and watch comedies you have to include Grandma's Boy. It is one of my favorite comedies of all time and goes perfectly with some nice buds.

Monty Python and the Life of Brian.  A peasant named Brian is born in the manger next to Jesus Christ's, and is briefly mistaken for the Savior of Mankind.  From this extraordinary opening scene, the movie lampoons Western culture, religion, and thought for 93 minutes of hilarity.
