What it the funniest DVD you own?

What DVD cracks you up more, and harder, than any other DVD you own every time you watch it?

For me, I would have to say:

It's between these:

Chappelle's Show Season 1 and 2

or

What About Bob?

I only have about 8 real comedy dvds (dvds that you'd find in the comedy section). I'm more of a dark comedy fan. And I'm a sucker for drama and violence with dark comedy.

Requiem For a Dream

Arrested Development is the funniest TV show I own. For films I would have to say either Airplane! or Monty Python & the Holy Grail (which for some reason has been taking a beating on these boards lately )

I never get tired of Will Ferrell's antics in Anchorman
as well anything by Matt Stone and Trey Parker is great.
If we're talking TV than its Arrested Development by a long shot.

The Big Lewbowski

The Opposite Of Sex

The Miracle Of Morgan's Creek

Monty Python And The Holy Grail

I'm All Right, Jack

I had a real difficult time narrowing it down to just these five...but these are the ones I keep watching whenever I need to unwind. I also have the first four seasons of Curb Your Enthusiasm, but I haven't watched all the episodes yet, so I'm not sure how funny it'll turn out to be.

This is definitely a tough one to figure out, but my initial reaction after reading the title was The Big Lewbowski, so I'm going with it.

Harlem Nights! This movie is hilarious, if your able to tolerate the excessive profanity.

Wayne's World, Bad Santa, and Liar Liar among many many comedies I own always make me laugh the most on a consistent basis.

Probably my Curb DVDs, though Seinfeld, Arrested Development, The Office, and Kids in the Hall are also hilarious.

I think I only have about 2 comedy films on DVD. Don't know why. Most of my comedy is TV.

i usually always go back to Super Troopers for a good laugh.

For TV it would be Arrested Development.
