For sheer delightful silliness, the 1972 classic What's Up Doc is hard to beat. The plot is silly, the gags are silly, the script is silly, the acting is silly and the whole crazy confection is a wonderful shameless celebration of silliness.
I'm not a big fan of Barbara Streisand or Ryan O'Neil but they're both perfect in this film. Young director Peter Bogdanovich sets a cracking pace and there's barely time to draw breath between the set pieces. The laughs are a great mix of one-liners, farce, physical comedy and manic chases. The pace is such that the 94 minutes running time just flash by.
Highly recommended for repeat viewing every couple of years.
