    Individual non-reference jokes in Robin Hood were okay.

    If you don't like Young Frankenstein, I am not sure if I want to know you.

    Spaceballs still holds up, b/c Star Wars is still a behemoth franchise.
    Never really developed a taste for tequila. Kind of hard to understand how you make a drink out of something that sharp, inhospitable. Now, bourbon is easy to understand.

    Well thanks for thinking about it though.

    I'll divide these into classic and modern to avoid some of the inevitable confusion.

    Classic:

    Ball of Fire
    It Happened One Night
    (The Fred and Ginger movies) (I'm collectively bolding them, sue me)
    (All of the Marx Brothers) including Horse Feathers
    (All of Chaplin) including The Freshman

    (All of Keaton)
    (All of Harold Lloyd)
    The Thin Man
    My Man Godfrey
    She Done Him Wrong
    The Bank Dick
    His Girl Friday
    Arsenic and Old Lace
    Sullivan's Travels
    Irma La Douce
    Our Man in Havana
    King Hearts and Coronets
    The Lavender Hill Gang
    Bringing Up Baby
    Born Yesterday
    Mr. Blandings Builds His Dream House
    Palm Beach Story
    The Man Who Came to Dinner
    Harvey


    Modern:

    The Producers
    Dr. Strangelove
    Young Frankenstein
    Airplane!
    (All of Woody Allen)
    (I'm collectively bolding them, sue me)

    Animal House
    The Big Lebowski
    Shaun of the Dead
    Holy Grail
    Austin Powers
    The Lego Movie
    Blazing Saddles
    Slap Shot
    South Park
    What We Do in the Shadows
    Clerks
    EuroTrip
    Borat
    Spinal Tap
    Scott Pilgrim
    Groundhog Day
    Idiocracy
    Anchorman
    Life of Brian
    Sausage Party
    Zoolander

    Two great movies I intentionally left off:

    Some Like it Hot, because I hate it but I know that's my fault.
    Being John Malkovich because it makes me very sad so it doesn't work for me as a comedy. Eternal Sunshine probably fits here, too.

    I realize both these movies are masterpieces but I can't appreciate them.

    Point of order: the first Austin Powers.

    The 2nd was was okay, and the third one sucked balls.

    Scary Movie, the first was AWESOME. The rest sucked arse.

    And "Not Another Teen Movie" is still, far and away, the best of that genre.

    Oh yeah. "No, no, no, no, anyone but her! Not... Janey Briggs! Guys, she's got glasses and a ponytail! Aw, look at that, she's got paint on her overalls, what is that? Guys, there's no way she could be prom queen!" Anything that points out what a steaming pile of **** "She's All That" was is great in my book.

    And almost every time you watch it, you catch another subtle reference. It was so well done.

    I considered both. I'll add them.

    Monty Woolley's Sheldon Whiteside is one of the greatest obscure movie characters in history. We are among the last people who aren't film studies majors who will ever know him, and that is a shame.
