With the awesome script and wonderful star cast, the movie plot had all elements of comedy, politics, a lot of toga parties, it was raunchy and takes you to that time of the 60s though it did raise eyebrows for vulgarity, it was a super duper comedy movie.
3. The Naked Gun
This 1988 movie the naked Gun- the series from the police squad is a laughter riot.

7. Some like it hot
This one released in 1959 brings out the best comic display in the due Tony Curtis and Jack Lemmons and Marilyn Monroe with her charm adds spice and sparkle in this totally eccentric absurd yet the one of the greatest comedies ever.

Comedy movies or rather seeing a funny movie brings all that smiles and giggles back to us and refreshes our mind. Comedy if made well and scripted well with good star cast are the most sought out movies among movie goers. Definitely it can be very subjective and if rated would be different from person to person.
