I enjoy comedies so I was interested in this list of the 101 funniest screenplays of all time. The list ranks them in order but while such rank ordering is good for getting people to click and argue about which films are better than others, I tend to ignore the rankings and use such lists merely as general guides to identify good films that I might have missed.
And this list gave me some good ideas that should keep me busy for some time. Most of the films are well known but there are some I had never heard of and I was curious if readers had any recommendations for the lesser known ones.
There were of course some films that I had seen and did not think were particularly funny. I did not get the appeal of the Austin Powers films, for example. On the other hand, the list is for screenplays of films, not the films themselves, so maybe some films failed in the execution.
