List 5 of your favorite comedies

With the taxes being due this past week, we all deserve a dose of silliness, right?  

Yesterday's Friday Frivolity revolved around comedy movies, but I decided to take advantage of that opportunity to be a bit of a tease, since I didn't divulge my top five.

Confession time:  in typical fashion, I struggled with narrowing down my list of favorites to merely five.  Saving those titles until today allowed me to disclose those that almost made this list in yesterday's post.  I know, I'm just a big cheat!

I've shared a few of my top comedies in previous 5 After 5 posts, like this one for my favorite actor and this one for my favorite Christmas movies. (See, more cheating!) 

Without further ado, here are my absolute favorite belly-busting flicks:

1.  Clue

Easily up at the top of my movie list, in general.  My best friend and I watched this movie so many times growing up, we could go through the entire thing (not just quoting lines, but musical notes, too) from start to finish (usually while sitting through an especially long church service).

I haven't watched it in a while, but I'm pretty sure I can still quote the majority of it by heart.  Especially this scene:

A former skating student guaranteed I would love this movie, and he was completely right.  I treat my Bic pens like Milton treats his Swingline and I will sit and laugh the entire time this movie is on.

Anyone who has ever held an office position will find this movie hilarious (actually, anyone who's ever held a job will find it funny), so you definitely have to check it out, if you aren't already familiar with it.  

A word of caution, though.  This movie is definitely filled with bad language, so if you don't want to block that out, it might be better to skip this one.

3.  Mr. Mom

I'm not sure if my mom and I have watched this or The Sound of Music more, but I would guess this wins the top spot, because it just always gave us such a laugh.

It's really been too long since I've last viewed it, but it hasn't been very long since I've quoted the lines from this classic scene:

4.  My Cousin Vinny

This is one of those movies that I can't help but stop and watch, whenever it happens to be on (or I did, before we got rid of tv).

It just makes me laugh so, so hard and there are so many scenes that I just adore.  One of my favorites involves Marisa Tomei discussing a deer, but another, more appropriate scene to share is this gem:

5.  Best in Show

I came up with the idea for today's comedic topic back when I was struggling with narrowing down my all-time favorite movie list to just five.

This movie definitely makes that list, but by shifting it here with the comedies, I was finally able to come up with only five for that past week.

Even though I like other movies that this silly group of actors has created, I enjoy this one so much that I watch it several times a year.

Here's my favorite part - and I even managed to hunt down a bee dog toy for my former dog, Bishnu!

For next week:

List 5 books you've read so far this year

It's no secret that we like books around here, so even though it's only April, I've already read quite the stack of tomes.  Which five do I feel are great enough to share?  Check back next week to see, as well as to share your list of five!

And now, here's this week's link party!  Two other fabulous bloggers have teamed up with me to create lists of five each week and we hope that you'll join us, too!

That's right, every post will be read, pinned and tweeted!  

Every Saturday, just stop by one of our three blogs to add your own list of five, then pop over and read as many other posts as you're able to each week - treat it like a true party and really mix it up and mingle with our fun little community!

The rules are simple:  just write your own list following the prompt each week (feel free to interpret it loosely - or in a unique way!), follow each of the three hosts on the social media channel of your choice, and then get into the spirit of the party by grabbing your favorite beverage or snack and reading the lists of the other party-goers.
