    Your favourite comedies?

    Laughing is good for our health right? So I'm making a list of the most hilarious comedies to watch. Off the top of my head I've got:

    - The Big Lebowski
    - Anchor Man
    - Blades of Glory
    - Birdcage
    - Coming to America
    - Monty Python: Life of Brian
    - Monty Python: Quest for the Holy Grail
    - The Princess Bride
    - Shaun of the Dead (British Zombie film)
    -

    (and ones I'd class as most overrated)

    - The Royal Tenenbaums
    - Little Miss Sunshine
    - The Hangover
    - Some Like it Hot

    What about you?
    "I think the basic anti-aging diet is also the best diet for prevention and treatment of diabetes, scleroderma, and the various "connective tissue diseases." This would emphasize high protein, low unsaturated fats, low iron, and high antioxidant consumption, with a moderate or low starch consumption.

    In practice, this means that a major part of the diet should be milk, cheese, eggs, shellfish, fruits and coconut oil, with vitamin E and salt as the safest supplements."

    All Wes Anderson is overrated, Kevin Smith too.

    I'd add Airplane, Top Secret, This is Spinal Tap and the original Bedazzled.

    Also an underappreciated classic: The Loved One with Jonathan Winters. It's based on an Evelyn Waugh novel, directed by Tony Richardson, and the screenplay is by Terry Southern and Christopher Isherwood.

    Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, steak in one hand, chocolate in the other, yelling "Holy F***, What a Ride!"

    somehow I manage to leave my intelligence and decorum at the door wherever I go. I doubt your journal will be an exception to that - not on the rug

    What the F&#* is a decorum? - Mr. Anthony
