No Comedy Movies List is complete without Snatch. If you have not seen it yet, you have not seen comedy.

Apart from that, fans of Casablance will enjoy this Woody Allen movie, Play It Again, Sam. In fact, most of Woody Allen movies are quite good comedies.

If you want to go back in time, pick up any movie by the Marx Brothers.

Another one of my all time favourites - just like LS & 2SB - both are by Guy Ritchie. However, I can never think of either of these movies as a comedy - though both of them have very funny lines.

Couple of dark comedies
- Hot Fuzz
- In Bruges

+1. Absolutely. Loved the heavy cockney accent of Alan Ford.

There is one particular scene where Alan Ford is describing how to get rid of a body....That was an outstandingly hilarious description

True about funny lines. But, at the danger of repeating myself. Both these movies are comedy movies in my book

Yes i remember that scene. He goes on to explain the meaning of nemesis in that scene.
Every character in that movie was a laugh riot.

How did you get this information? Is it written somewhere on their website? Or did you get an SMS about it?

Aah, one of my all-time favourites. I like the way Marissa stomps her feet in anger, and also the way the drunken advocate prosecutes the guys.

My Cousin Vinny is absolutely fabulous, Ditto for Marisa Tomei. The automotive analysis and knowledge is just mindblowing. Ofcourse that she looks ultra cool does not hurt.

Not in Bombay. I just called up & asked the CS what it's cut off - she asked "what city". When I said Bombay, she said it's midnight. So looks like it's different for different cities.

Bombay was midnight earlier, then they changed it 2:00 am of next day. Looks like it's changed back to midnight.

A movie from the Dark Humor Genre : Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb.
A Seriously Brilliant movie by one of my Favorite Directors Stanley Kubrick.

Any one watched Red Cliff? was watching over the weekend. What a movie! Amazing Chinese Epic visuals and choreography.

When I later checked on the net, came to know its a John Woo classic.

Not me. I saw it with a lot of expectations. But found it to be a very average movie - not really funny.
2/5

Watched "Unstoppable" on the way to Chennai last week. The movie is nothing great.
2/5.

All of his lines were great so that of others, each character is wisely placed.

One of my favorites.

Do you know what "nemesis" means? A righteous infliction of retribution manifested by an appropriate agent. Personified in this case by an horrible cunt... me.


The line you are referring is..... for other fans' sake to read.

And when you got your six pieces, you gotta get rid of them, because it's no good leaving it in the deep freeze for your mom to discover, now is it? Then I hear the best thing to do is feed them to pigs. You got to starve the pigs for a few days, then the sight of a chopped-up body will look like curry to a piss head. You gotta shave the heads of your victims, and pull the teeth out for the sake of the piggies' digestion. You could do this afterward, of course, but you don't want to go sieving' through pig ****, now do you? They will go through bone like butter. You need at least sixteen pigs to finish the job in one sitting, so be wary of any man who keeps a pig farm. They will go through a body that weighs 200 pounds in about eight minutes. That means that a single pig can consume two pounds of uncooked flesh every minute. Hence the expression, "as greedy as a pig".
