Comedy is my favorite movie genre and these are my favorite comedies: classics, romances, slobs vs snobs, absurdities, turds in punch bowls, coming of age, etc... . I didn't edit for the current climate, so they're not vetted for political correctness. They made me laugh and they make me happy. There are some movies that are very funny, even though they're not comedies in the classic sense; I've included some of those. I adore most Pixar and Disney movies, but I didn't include those.
NOTE: list published before I could add Real Genius.
