I love Caddyshack, for sports movies that's right up there.  
Airplane's good.  
It's popular but Monty Python and the Holy Grail is a classic.  
 
those are a few I can watch the entire way through and laugh the entire time.  
 
 
There's a movie coming out in September, Trailer Park Boys: The Big Dirty  which will probably easily become one of my favorites.  You Canadians should know what I'm talking about!

Another vote for This Is Spinal Tap
 
I'm also rather fond of Raising Arizona, Monty Python And The Holy Grail, and Young Frankenstein.

Tap is awesome but I would have to go with Holy Grail and Something About Mary as my personal top two comedies.
 
I actually saw Spinal Tap in concert back in the early 90s!  Smiley

You can't mention funny movies without mentioning Mel Brooks. Blazing Saddles, anyone?

Can't tell you how envious I am. Was just a kid then but I was totally blown away when I saw them at the Freddie Mercury Tribute (I noticed they were funny, but didn't know much about them at that point).
 
Back to films. Yes, pretty much anything by Monty Python is pure genius. I'd also like to add the series Police Squad!, and kind of subsequently Naked Gun as well (though it wasn't nearly as good as the series).

Pink Panther movies. Peter Sellers was hilarious and I still watch them from time to time. Another funny movie with him is "The Party". I totally recommend this movie to anyone who likes him. Basically (and this is not a spoiler) he is accidently invited to a party. When he gets there, all hell breaks loose!! Grin

A highlight moment was when the skull prop came down with a Santa Claus hat on for "Christmas with the Devil."  Very fun show.

Dr. Strangelove is definitely worth watching if you haven't seen it.  I'm not sure any of the roles are serious in there but they are a lot meatier than Airplane acting.  Not that there is anything wrong with Airplane, Naked Gun, etc.

Kubrick is one of my favorite directors so yes, I should watch this one. Cool

Speaking of Kubrick and Sellers, they also made Lolita together. Although Sellers appears only in a few sequences, he's very good in there as well.
