It Snowed Again – Help Me Find Joy in the World

I’ve gotten some great feedback in the comments section of this blog and on Twitter regarding my recent posts about writing secrets learned from funny movies.

It has me wondering: what is your favorite comedy movie of all time?

And within that movie, what was your absolute favorite line?

Finally, don’t forget to go back to yesterday’s post – I tried something a little different and wrote a choose-your-own-adventure-style post. The readers (you) get to decide which direction the story will go.

  1. Does the Princess Bride count as a comedy?

    If not, then it’s a toss up for me between You don’t mess with the Zohan, Hot Shots Part Deux, and Robin Hood: Men in tights.

    1. Great call with Princess Bride. I think you have to let it compete in the comedy category, even though it’s so much more than that.

  2. Planes, Trains and Automobiles.
    I can’t remember very many lines, but the first time I saw this movie I died laughing for 2 hours.

    Steve Martin-“Where are your hands.”
    John Candy- “Between 2 pillows.”
    Steve Martin- “Those aren’t pillows!”

  3. Favorite comedy of all time? Tough, but probably Zoolander.

    That movie is about one of the most quotable movies ever, in my mind, but the line that I quote most often?

    “Listen to your friend Billy Zane. He’s a cool dude.”

    I don’t know what it is about that line, but it KILLS me. And while I don’t know if I say it every day, I would be surprised if more than a week goes by without me saying it to someone. There are probably funnier lines in the movie (“freak gasoline-fight accident” “moisture is the essence of wetness and wetness is the essence of beauty” “I have to go pee, but I’d like to continue talking about this conversation when I get back” and a million others), but that one? It’s just a perfect line.

    Honestly, I could go on and on about this movie. Yeah, it’s probably my favorite.

  4. Strange Brew–“where’s the puck?”

    The funniest lines seem to be more about their context, timing, and acting ability than their words.
