Where's #20?

EDIT: you left out #14 "Ghostbusters" which messes up the rest of the numbering.

How can you put Blazing Saddles 1 and not have Young Frankenstein top 20?

Maybe because Blazing Saddles, believe it or not, has dated far better than Young Frankenstein(aside from the dumb ending). I recently went through a whole Brooks filmography rewatch recently and YF most definitely wasn't as good as I thought it was when I watched it numerous times just a decade ago.

These two can replace Wayne's World and Anchorman as far as I'm concerned.
