Entertainment Weekly recently published their list of the 25 funniest movies of the past 25 years. While the list was decent as a whole, I think that there are many more deserving titles that didn’t get mentioned.

Note that this is a list of the funniest movies in the past 25 years, so any movie made before 1983 does not apply! For Example: Caddyshack, The Jerk, etc.

I also took it upon myself to label some of the movies that I thought were good picks for the top 25 list.

Here’s the list:

1. “Ghostbusters” (1984) – Not #1, but in the top 25
2. “National Lampoon’s Vacation” (1983) – Great Choice
3. “Beverly Hills Cop” (1984)
4. “This Is Spinal Tap” (1984)
5. “Office Space” (1999)
6. “South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut” (1999)
7. “There’s Something About Mary” (1998) – CLASSIC
8. “The Big Lebowski” (1998)
9. “A Fish Called Wanda” (1988)
10. “Dazed and Confused” (1993)
11. “The 40 Year Old Virgin” (2005) – No comments needed! 😉
12. “When Harry Met Sally…” (1989)
13. “Waiting for Guffman” (1996)
14. “Wedding Crashers” (2005)
15. “Trading Places” (1983)
16. “Superbad” (2007)
17. “Tropic Thunder” (2008) – I want to see this movie!
18. “Napoleon Dynamite” (2004) – Definitely a top 25 pick
19. “Clueless” (1995)
20. “Best in Show” (2000)
21. “Clerks” (1994)
22. “Old School” (2003) – “Dude, you just took a shot right to the jugular!”
23. “Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery” (1997) – Yeah Baby Yeah!
24. “The Naked Gun: From the Files of Police Squad” (1988) – “Nice Beaver”
25. “Withnail and I” (1987)
