    I just saw it a few days ago at the SF gay film fest (funnier than my previous all time favorites) - Let My People Go. It was one of those films that I will have to see again when it is released, because the audience was laughing so hard, I missed some of the next funny lines. Like an Almodovar film, only side-splittingly funny. (A principal actress is Almodovar regular Carmen Maura.) A brilliantly written and well acted farce in the traditional mode - the characters all take their interactions and dialogue very seriously, even in what is to the audience ridiculous situations. Unlike american films, there is no over-acting. Not for the brain-dead - it is in french, so you have to read subtitles. Protagonist Reuben is dumped by his Finnish lover, and has to return to his crazy Jewish extended family in Paris. Not too unlike the family he might have had if he were in Manhatten or New Jersey. For those who don't know any Jewish families, think on Fran Drescher in the Nanny, only a bit more upscale. Has been in a ton of film festivals . My guess is it will be released in theaters by the end of the year.

    Another all-time favorite comedy was The Tall Blonde Man with One Black Shoe - also a french farce.

    I'd have to say in terms of recent comedy movies it has to be the Inbetweeners movie, but overall it has to be Airplane icon_biggrin.gif

    Count me as another for "Young Frankenstein". I can't hear the phrase "roll in the hay" without thinking of Teri Garr singing "roll, roll, roll in ze hay!".
