POLL- THE WEAKEST LINK: SELECT COMEDY FILMS - ROUND 1

MedozKMedozK TennesseePosts: 8,398
I would like us to continue on the movie path for one more 'WEAKEST LINK'. I decided to go with one of some of my all-time favorite comedy films, so we can now discuss which of these films in the best comedy from the ones selected. Pick the film that you think is the WEAKEST LINK from the ones provided. I do know there are MANY comedies that are just as funny as any of these and some probably better. But, when I was putting together a list of just 10, these are the ones that came to mind. Again, thanks to everyone who plays.

Now to the 1st Round to determine the BEST of these SELECTED COMEDIES.

You are going to pick the film that you think is the "Weakest Link" after 2 days I remove the two (2) movie with the most votes. We will then move on to ROUND 2.

SELECTED COMEDY FILMS
Blazing Saddles (1974)
Young Frankenstein (1974)
Monty Python and the Holy Grail (1975)
Animal House (1978)
The Jerk (1979)
Airplane (1980)
Caddyshack (1980)
This Is Spinal Tap (1984)
The Naked Gun (1988)

    My vote is strategic so as to protect The Jerk from being eliminated in the first round.

    Da fuck! People voting for The Jerk or Caddyshack or Young Frankenstein?

    This poll about comedy has become a tragedy.

    Some people. SMH.

    Is The Jerk really in danger of going out in the first round?

    That’s racist AF, right there!

    Caddyshack

    Well, we all know who belongs to their local country clubs now, don’t we. 

    Young Frankenstein

    Wrong on so many levels: Must have something against the differently abled. Or is it the differently endowed? Probably both. Abby Normal, indeed!

    It is and that is a horrible scene...

    I might of added Space balls in there too instead of Dumb&Dumber.  D&D is a 90's movie where all the rest are late 70's early 80's movies.

    Fletch is another one I could watch over and over, but Caddy is better.  Hilarious movie.
    Anchorman is probably the most recent movie I could put in this formidable group.

    I can fully understand why some don't like Dumb & Dumber.....but there are scenes that still make me laugh like crazy

    I loved D&D when I was younger. Idiotic and ridiculous humor much like other great 90's comedies Kingpin, There's Something About Mary and Happy Gilmore. I think they are definitely in a different comedy sphere than Caddy, The Jerk or Young Frankenstein. Much more satire in those classics instead of bathroom humor.
    It's a hopeless situation...

    Ah, I hadn’t watched that series enough to remember him. Still, Young Frank precedes that!

    Same here. I'm surprised how many votes it's getting. 


    I always liked The Jerk but feel like it's mistitled. A "jerk" is a mean person, like an asshole. I think Navin was more of a dumbass than a jerk. Maybe "The Moron" would've been a better title.
