I love Parenthood!
I also like Clue and A League of Their Own when I'm watching with friends; something about both of those leaves us with jokes all night.
When Harry Met Sally is another favorite of mine.
DROP DEAD FRED DEFINITELY!
Run Ronnie Run!?
Also how has no one said Parenthood (the 90s movie with Steve Martin) and also My Blue Heaven?!
The Burbs didn't make the list?
Everyone needs to see Hamlet 2 above all.
"Ah, those endless forests, and their horror-haunted gloom! For what eternities have I wandered through them, a timid, hunted creature, starting at the least sound, frightened of my own shadow, keyed-up, ever alert and vigilant, ready on the instant to dash away in mad flight for my life. For I was the prey of all manner of fierce life that dwelt in the forest, and it was in ecstasies of fear that I fled before the hunting monsters."
Jack london, "Before Adam"

This Is Spinal Tap
Monty Python and the Holy Grail
Anything with Danny Kaye
Anything with Mae West
Anything from Mel Brooks
The Goodbye Girl (particular romantic comedy favorite of mine)
BTW, if you turn on the closed captioning when you watch Blazing Saddles, they actually caption what the crusty old miner says. It's hilarious!

ANy Monty Python movie,
Any Mel Brooks movie (Blazing Saddles, Young Frankenstein etc)

And while not a movie, I love Two and a half men with Sheen in it, the new version is rubbish IMHO.
