Comedy tonight

Gordon, over at Blog THIS, Pal!, had the list of... The 50 Most Significant Comedy Films of All Time, as selected by Bob McCabe, author of The Rough Guide to Comedy Movies.

The idea for the meme began with John Scalzi over at Whatever.

They are, in alphabetical order (Bold the ones you've seen and place an asterisk by the ones you own):

All About Eve
Annie Hall
The Apartment
Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery*
Blazing Saddles*
Bringing Up Baby
Broadcast News

Le diner de con
Dr. Strangelove: Or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb
Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story
Duck Soup
Ferris Bueller's Day Off
Four Weddings and a Funeral
The General
The Gold Rush
Good Morning Vietnam
The Graduate
Groundhog Day*
A Hard Day's Night
His Girl Friday

Kind Hearts and Coronets
The Lady Killers
Local Hero*
Monty Python's Life of Brian
National Lampoon's Animal House
The Odd Couple
The Producers
Raising Arizona
Shaun of the Dead
A Shot in the Dark
Some Like it Hot*

Strictly Ballroom
Sullivan's Travels
There's Something About Mary
This is Spinal Tap
To Be or Not to Be*
Toy Story*

Les vacances de M. Hulot
When Harry Met Sally...*
Withnail and I

Movies that should have been on the list:

Young Frankenstein
A Fish Called Wanda
Monty Python and the Holy Grail
The Philadelphia Story
The Princess Bride

The 5 they would replace? Can't say for sure because I haven't seen all of those on the list.
