FTTW is holding a poll on the funniest film comedy ever.

UPDATE: Of course, I voted for Holy Grail.

Funniest movie ever? And Dr. Strangelove isn't even on the ballot?

Where is Animal House? A travesty! It's like leaving out Ronald Reagan in a poll of greatest 20th century presidents but including Jimmy Carter...

Holy Grail, Animal House, Bringing Up Baby, Rat Race. The rest are just wannabees.

I went with Airplane just ahead of Young Frankenstein and Holy Grail. Ask me again tomorrow and you might get a different answer.

I missed out on the voting and therefore do not know which movies were on the list, but Caddyshack and Fast Times at Ridgemont High.

Incidentally, Stripes isn't even close to my choice of funniest movie ever. But Maddirish mentioning Caddyshack triggered the association.

I'll second Young Frankenstein, Dr. Strangelove, Animal House and Holy Grail though. All hilarious.

Also no votes for the Peter Falk version of The In-Laws. Not a very good poll in my view.
