Specifically 'The Producers' second version with the hilarious antics of Nathan LANE and Will FERRELL.

Step-brothers is hands down the funniest film I have seen. I literally cried throughout. Will Ferrell, in my opinion, is the best improv. actor on the planet.

I shall probably get shot down in flames here but I am putting forward most, but not all of the "Carry On" films, also I shall mention another Mel Brooks film, "Robin Hood, Men in Tights" and one scene in particular when Robin and Little John have the quarterstaff fight on the bridge.

That's fair comment. The Carry Ons were certainly more hit than miss and are a great British institution, with a handful of them being nothing short of comic brilliance (Up The Khyber, Screaming, Cleo, Camping, Don't Lose Your Head etc), but I almost lost the will to live after sitting through Columbus and Emmanuelle.

Master Card says:
I thought 'Columbus' was the new one, and not really a Carry On film at all as it had all modern people in it and none of the Carry On cast. Emmanuelle Ive no idea about, but suspect it fall into the same problem as 'Bloodbath At The House Of Death' ( the Kenny Everett film) which halfway through seemed to run out of steam, and instead of parodying horror films, started to try and become one.

Everyone must have ONE movie which made them laugh MORE than ANY other ?
I know there are many funny films out there, but for me, HOLY GRAIL had me doubled up !
Which ONE film, made YOU laugh harder than ANY other film peeps ? :o)

Carry on Columbus did have Jim Dale and Jack Douglas in it and was scheduled to have Frankie Howard, but he died before filming. At least Jack Douglas got the one funny line in the film - he and a sexy girl are looking at the sea from their ship and he comments on the killer sharks circling around "oh dear" exclaims the girl "do you think they'd eat me whole?" "No, I've heard they spit that bit out" was his wry reply. The only laugh in 90 minutes!

Funniest film? Dunno, but if laughing out loud is the criterion then the funniest scene I can recall is in the film where two old dears running a shop take some cannabis and start giggling at everything. It was so infectious I was almost on the floor laughing. Should have carried a health warning. (Brenda Blethyn was in it I think).

In The Loop with its desire to make swearing an art form is fantastic - even without the swearing, Four Lions is brilliant, Spinal Tap, Life of Brian/ Holy Grail... The Inbetweeners was funnier than it ought to have been...

For me, nearly anything by Laurel and Hardy is great fun, but especially their short, "Scram!" (Laurel & Hardy Volume 12 - L & H and the Law), which -- as well as the expected slapstick -- also elevates farce to an art. Galaxy Quest is full of great laughs for lovers of Star Trek, while Shrek has more than enough humour to engage adults as well as kids. Satire doesn't come much better than Dr. Strangelove and I'm Alright Jack.

I loved all the original St Trinians films especially "St. Trinians - The Great St. Trinians Train Robbery [DVD] and the original Pink Panther films.

"Start the Revolution Without Me (Gene Wilder, Donald Sutherland) Region 2" had me in stitches and I still think it takes the prize for the funniest and most ridiculous ending ever screened.

Coming up to more recent films, there were sections of "Iron Sky [DVD]" which had me literally rolling about laughing, particularly the Downfall parody, but other bits were so dire that I nearly got up and turned it off.

My favourite sci-fi comedies are Mel Brooks' delightful parody of Star Wars (and almost every other Sci Fi film), "Spaceballs [DVD] [1987]" - particularly loved the "Ludicrous Speed" section and the self-destruct sequence parody, and Galaxy Quest [DVD] [2000] which as others have said is a wonderful but sympathetic parody of Science fiction shows and their fans.

But for my absolute funniest film of all time I don't think you can beat the second of the original Flubber films (not the 90s remake). The first was "The Absent Minded Professor" which came out the year I was born and the sequel which for me was the funniest film ever made was "Son Of Flubber [DVD]."

Sorry but you are wrong.

Jack DOUGLAS was in 'Dick' and many others. Jim DALE was in 'Cowboy' and 'Don't Lose Your Head' and ' Again Doctor' plus others and Bernard 'Right said Fred' CRIBBINS went back to 'Spying'.

I'd have to go with a 'double feature' - 'Those Magnificent Men in Their Flying Machines', with a great villain in Terry-Thomas , Sir Percy Ware-Armitage { what a delightful toilet inspired name } and Eric SYKES as his off-sider COURTNEY and "The Great Race' with Jack LEMMON as Professor FATE, with his brilliant but dumb assistant Max, played by 'Columbo', Peter FALK.

"Push the button Max"

I'm not a fan of Yank humour but, as a former Police Officer, I absolutely loved Jackie GLEASON as Sheriff Buford T. JUSTICE in the 'Smokey and The Bandit' movies. His dumb son, Junior, was a real side splitter.

Don't know if I'd rate it the funniest film ever made but always thought that "Flying Machines" was great fun. It's quite nostalgic now to watch it and see all those cameos by British comedy stalwarts like Benny Hill, Tony Hancock, Eric Sykes and so on. There was a wonderful daftness about a lot of British comedy in the sixties, as depicted in the "Carry On" films and it did have a certain style. By the 1970s, both on TV and in cinema, the style and the daftness had been superseded by so-called comedy that had lost that style and which was banal (abysmally so) rather than inspirationally daft.
