If nothing else, I can always put Bring it On, Ghostbusters, Clue, Hot Fuzz or Pitch Perfect on in the background and call it good.

The Other Guys

Whenever it's on TV, I always end up watching it. And I love the credits (facts about a Ponzi Scheme and other financial disasters)

Tough to say but it would probably be Trading Places. It just makes me laugh and puts me in a good mood every time I watch it. Animal House does the same. Along with Vacation.

I'm pretty specific on comedy. I love tons of it, but almost everything that most people like is complete trash to me.

Monty Python
Parks and Recreation
30 Rock
Venture Bros

Three of my favs have been mentioned already but the funniest film of all time is still The Exorcist. The others three are.

Young Frankenstein
Ghostbusters

+1 Something about this one is hilarious and utterly re-watchable. It has a completely uneven mix of deadpan subtlety and over-the-top absurdity but somehow it works.

My three go-to movies have been on the top of my list since childhood, partly from nostalgia and partly because they're hilarious!

National Lampoon's Vacation
Airplane!
Ghostbusters

All three are endlessly re-watchable for me.

Whenever I was depressed, I used to put in Monty Python and the Holy Grail. Kind of lost its luster, but for a while, it was a great antidepressant for a while.
