Light and funny movie, please.

No sadness at all, please. I don't care about quality, just funny (not slapstick or rude) and light. Thank you!

The Philadelphia Story. Or High Society if you want to sing along as a bonus.
My Life in Ruins...about a tour guide in Greece.
"Smokey and the Bandit" with Burt Reynolds and Sally Fields.
Ground Hog Day (Bill Murray and Andie McDowell....so funny.
Also, Private Benjamin *Goldie Hawn)
Legally Blonde
Being There
I've watched them all many times and they still make me laugh.
Being a huge movie geek, I am taking this assignment seriously. However - humor is tricky. I noticed my list doesn't have anything really current. I think that's because I'm not fond of a lot of current "funny" guys like Will Farrell, Ben Stiller and especially Adam Sandler. Also, some humor like the Monty Python movies are an acquired taste. I know I'll think of more - but for now - and in no particular order: Shaun of the Dead, 9 to 5, The Birdcage, A League of Their Own, Roman Holiday, Airplane, Dr. Strangelove, Young Frankenstein and Tootsie. Also, French Kiss - which isn't overly funny but is beautifully sweet.
The Birdcage never fails to crack me up!
High Society! My all time favorite!

Hope and Glory! Always a good Movie watching on a rainy afternoon, with a Pot of Tea, and some good Chocolates! And alone, preferably! Lol!

To Sir with Love
Love Story

Musicals are my thing, so:
The King and I
It Happened at the Worlds Fair (gotta represent Seattle, Lol!)
My Fair Lady
Hello Dolly
GREASE!
THE Sound of Music (of Course!)
Funny Girl
CLAM BAKE, with Elvis!
Merry Poppins
WILLY WONKA AND THE CHOCOLATE FACTORY! My very first date! To the local cinema with the cutest boy in 6th grade! He bought the tickets, brought me Chocolate and held my hand, HEAVEN!
Chitty Chitty Bang Bang!
A Star is Born


Wow, now I have a date with my Couch, my Blankie, my little Charlie-girl pooch and a cup of tea! Sending hubby out for the Chocolates!

My Welsh family relatives are leaving tomorrow, after nearly 3 weeks of go,go,go! I desperately need a couple of relaxing and recovery days, and our gloomy Seattle weather has returned, so a great time to kick back and watch some old favorites! Keep those ideas coming!

"The Long Long Trailer" comedy with Lucille Ball and Desi Arnez. About newly weds who buy a very long trailer to live in and go on the trip with it :)
South Park Bigger Longer and Uncut
More fun,
Best In Show
The Parent Trap (new or old version)
AND if you want to LOL! Check out GROWN UPS. IT's hysterical.

Keep the conversation going (or start a new one)
