In no particular order:

Airplane!
Blazing Saddles
Monty Python and the Holy Grail
South Park: Bigger, Longer, & Uncut
Stripes
Ghostbusters
National Lampoon's Vacation & European Vacation
Ferris Bueller's Day Off
Duck Soup
UHF
The Compleat Al
Brain Donors
Weird Science
Caddyshack
Kentucky Fried Movie


Somehow, Groundhog's Day and The Big Lebowski almost make the cut, but never quite there for me.

UPDATE - added "Caddyshack" and "Kentucky Fried Movie", can't believe I forgot those. I am pretty close to adding "Amazon Women on the Moon", but it's not quite as funny as KFM and they're basically cousin films, so having both doesn't work for me.

I cannot believe I forgot "Caddyshack" on my list! I'm going to add it right now, yipes! Chevy Chase, Ted Knight, Bill Murray, and especially Rodney Dangerfield are at the tops of their comedic talents in this film!

I also forgot to add "Kentucky Fried Movie", which defies explanation. I guess I was lacking "totaw concentwation". :D
