Groundhog Day Groundhog Day makes the list.
Any list that has Groundhog Day, A Fish Called Wanda AND Wedding Crashers is alright with me. But what list could combine such films?

50 Greatest Comedies

Premiere recently created their very own list of the top 50 comedic films of all time. The list is impressive and, to not piss off any fans, displays the films in chronological order. Here are a few of my favs below:

Groundhog Day
Billy Murray's misanthropic weatherman is doomed to repeat the same day over and over again until he redeems himself. Spending every day with the guy, even when it starts at 6 A.M. with “I've Got You Babe” on the radio alarm, is a delight.

A Fish Called Wanda
A Sublime mix of British slapstick and American vulgarity, this crime caper features some c-c-c classic c-c-c- comedy centering around a jewel heist and multiple double-crosses. You'll never listen to Italian the same way again.

The Big Lebowski
Raise a White Russian, spark a doobie, and give it up for the Dude. By melding film noir and screwball comedy—and adding an irate Vietnam vet, some ferret toting nihilists, and a case of mistaken identity—the Cohen brothers created the smoking man's Maltese Falcon.

It's not easy being really, really good-looking—especially when you're a male supermodel who has been programmed to assassinate the Malaysian prime minister. Ben Stiller departs from his usual comic angst to play an oddly endearing character too dim to sustain a neurosis.

Wedding Crashers
Two divorce mediators drop in on weddings for the free champagne and freer love in this R-rated romp. Mellow Owen Wilson and rat-a-tat-tat Vince Vaughn, go together like white dresses and three-tiered cakes…or bridesmaids and condoms, as it were.

Your favorites not mentioned? Take a closer look by heading on over to Premiere.

Stay tuned for updates.
