I love movies that make me laugh. If I have to think too much during the movie, to me, that defeats the purpose of watching a movie.
To this day, my favorite comedy is National Lampoon’s Animal House. I don’t know why. It’s corny and stupid, but it makes me laugh. The horse, Belushi on the ladder going from window to window, “Guess what I am?”, etc. One of the reasons, I guess, why that movie makes me laugh is because I had just gotten out of college when it came out.
Others include National Lampoon’s Vacation and Christmas Vacation, Ace Ventura (Dan Marino is in that one and the Miami Dolphins), My Cousin Vinny has some great lines in it, an oldie No Time for Sergent’s (Andy Griffith is a hoot and I love to repeat some of his lines sometimes), There’s Something About Mary and I could go on and on.
I love watching those movies over and over.
