This is a hard one, since opinions differ so greatly (as do tastes). But looking at various lists, a few movies do repeat themselves. So here are the top 15 movies I could find that repeat themselves in theses lists, based on the top 15 list out there. The films are in no particular order and there are several others, these ones just happen to all be in the top 15 of nearly all lists, repeatedly.

 

  • Monty Python and the Holy Grail
  • Anchorman
  • The Hangover
  • Airplane!
  • The Naked Gun
  • The Jerk
  • Some like it Hot
  • Annie Hall
  • Monty Python's Life of Brian
  • This is Spinal Tap
  • Dr. Strangelove
  • Duck Soup
  • Blazing Saddles
  • Caddyshack
  • Superbad

The sense of humor differs wildly between people, so this is largely a matter of taste. Personally, I'd have to vote for either Monty Python and the Holy Grail or Airplane! as the funniest movies ever. No, these are not very out-of-left-field picks, but they are really funny movies:
