Well, I've finally found a definitive list of the funniest comedy films of all time. The beauty is the list is from a writer's perspective - specifically the Writer's Guild of America. It's a pretty tough ask, but I think they done a solid job of it.

So, I have set myself the lofty mission of watching all them before the year's end - regardless if I've seen them or not.
Here's where I'm at to date:
Nation Lampoon's Animal House
Dirty Rotten Scoundrels
