“Rolling Stone” readers picked the 25 Funniest Movies of All Time, and they gave the top spot to the 1974 Mel Brooks comedy Blazing Saddles.  It was followed by “Airplane!” and “Monty Python and the Holy Grail”. The oldest movie on the list is “Dr. Strangelove” from 1964.  It’s the only movie from the ’60s.  The ’70s were represented by SIX films . . . there were EIGHT from the ’80s . . .

Did “Rolling Stone’s” new list of the 25 Funniest Movies of All Time hit on all your favorites?  Probably not.  So what was it missing? First of all, it seems like a crime to completely ignore CHARLIE CHAPLIN, the MARX BROTHERS and ABBOTT & COSTELLO.  What about a Pink Panther” movie or a WOODY ALLEN flick?  The classics, people.  Then there’s “Groundhog Day”“Stripes”“Ghostbusters”“Some Like It Hot”“The Odd Couple” . . .”Pee Wee’s Big Adventure”“Shaun of the Dead”“Hot Fuzz”,…… OKAY.  So clearly I have some opinions on the issue.  What about you? What’s your favorite funny movie of all time? Did the Rolling Stone readers get it right? Take our survey and tell me all about it.  We’ll share your answers on the air!
