(From Wikipedia):
Slapstick films are comedy films where physical comedy that includes pratfalls, tripping, falling, practical jokes, mistakes, are highlighted over dialogue, plot and character development.[1] The physical comedy in these films contains a cartoonish style of violence that is predominantly harmless and goofy in tone.

    Super Troopers gets a 9.  It gets funnier the more you watch it and should reach 10 for me soon.

    A Princess Bride

    I've only seen parts of that movie, need to watch the whole thing! Found it on Amazon prime, so I will rate it this weekend, F Me. Hope you don't mind if we skip this movie for now.

    5  It's good for a watch, not great.

    A 8.5  Overall has some weak parts but Bill Murray is just great so it gets a great score.
    (No worries on skipping it, perhaps was too obscure.)

    Is this screw-bally enough?  Perhaps you can put a definition in the op?

    I've just been googling movie titles along with the words "screwball comedy" to see if a review has deemed the movie worthy of being a screwball comedy. That way I can blame a specific person if someone challenges the validity of a movie. ;)
    I'm having a hard time confirming that Wet Hot American Summer is indeed a screwball comedy, so I would say prepare for someone with a stick up their butt to raise hell. :smiley:

    I googled and it would appear screwball is a subgenre of romantic comedies.....hhmmm.

    Well, you are the OP, so however you want to define/re-define is up to you.
    Not sure that WHAS "satirizes the traditional love story"  (wiki), although there is some romance going on there.

    Yeah, the definition left a bad taste in my mouth. How about "Slapstick Comedy"? The definition is more palatable and just about all of the movies already rated apply.

    Hobbes, do you want to rate a subgenre of romantic comedies?

    The only slapstick I can think of that I like are the Marx Brothers.
