Yes! Sellers was absolutely amazing. I actually liked him in serious roles as well.


Oh my, I've never seen him in a serious role áShocked

 
You've got to see Being There - a career high IMHO and I'm a major Sellers fan.
 
Hmmm, in other comedies, what do I like?
 
Monty Python (Brian/Grail etc)
Marx Brothers
The League Of Gentlemen's Apocolypse
Shaun Of The Dead
The Producers (Original)
 
I used to love Mel Brooks films, but I think a lot of them have dated very badly - watched History of the World Pt 1 recently and barely raised a titter Wink
 
I've missed loads, but as usual, the mind has gone blank

Being There.... I've seen that one!! áSmiley áThat had Shirley MacLaine in it. áWhile that was more of a serious role for him, I still lmao áGrin so I didn't consider that one at the time. áExcellent movie!!  Smiley

Oh, I also found Blind Date hilarious. áThat film was also directed by Blake Edwards (same director of the Pink Panther movies). I believe I literally fell off my chair in the theater laughing so hard. á

1. Monty Python (simply brilliant, especially Life of Brian, Meaning of Life and The Holy Grail)
2. Robin Hood Men in Tights - no comments needed I think Wink and Spaceballs by Mel Brooks also

I'll agree with both points here... The Princess Bride IS definately one of the best movies EVER... I've must have seen it over a hundered times  Cool.  And Yes, the therapy scene in Austin Powers is absolutely hilarious, as is the hole movie... I liked "The Spy Who Shagged Me" alot as well...  Grin

Was 'Princess Bride' based on a book? Something with Inigo Montoya?

It's based on the 1973 book of the same name by William Goldman, Inigo Montoya is one of the characters;  
"Hello. My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die."
Great stuff!

Possibly my best remembered funny movie (VERY quirky) is Christopher Guest's "Waiting for Guffman".

I didn't see that movie before, generally anything with Christopher Guest in is very watchable; This Is Spinal Tap, The Princess Bride, and Best In Show to name a few. I'll have to keep an eye out for it Smiley

What about the Boulting Brothers films from the late 50's starring Ian Carmichael - Privates Progress and the classic School for Scoundrels.

I'm starting to think I'm the only person in the world who doesn't care for The Princess Bride. I've seen it twice and still think it's sh*te.
 
And also: Austin Powers is overrated. The first one was good, but the 2nd one was basically a rehash of all of the jokes from the first one, and the third was...just meh. Mike Myers was best in Wayne's World (and especially Wayne's World 2...quite possibly the only good sequel ever made).

Yeah, "Analyze This" was very good.  I had a few people that said they didn't like it; I thought it was "marvelous"!
