Harlem Nights – Comedy gods combined to make this movie.

Other noted comedians are comedy legends Redd Foxxx and Robin Harris with appearances by Arsenio Hall and Charlie Murphy. Harlem Nights keeps the punch-lines coming while the gangsters navigate the different problems that arise when the people in power decide that they want a piece of their business.

The 40 Year Old Virgin - Judd Apatow is a comedic genius. Instead of attempting to write great jokes for an entire movie, Apatow hires great comedians and let’s them improvise onscreen. 40 Yr. Old Virgin is the story of a (wait for it…..) 40 year old virgin who is trying to sort out a non-existent love life and idling career. Seth Rogen, Paul Rudd, and Romany Malco befriend and harass Steve Carril as they attempt to get him laid.
Random Quote: I think… I mean, that sounds gay. I just want you to know this is, like, the first conversation of, like, three conversations that leads to you being gay. Like, there’s this and then in a year it’s like, “Oh, you know, I’m kinda gonna want to get back out there, but I think I like guys,” and then there’s the big, “Oh, I’m… I’m… I’m a gay guy now.”
Borat – Sasha Baron Cohen is a comedic genius and Borat is him at his best. He plays an immigrant to United States in a new country, a fish out of water. And, he learns about America through asking the average American about their lives. The catch is that the people are not actors. He goads them into talking about their own prejudices, insecurities, and beliefs on camera. It is hilarious, telling, and poignant at the same time.

Caddyshack – Caddyshack is a story about golfing and gophers. But, it is still quoted on golf courses and in boardrooms across the planet today. It starred three comedy legends, Bill Murray, Chevy Chase, and Rodney Dangerfield, and it funny on all comedic levels, wit, satire, and slapstick.

Random Quote: Lee Harvey, you are a madman. When you stole that cow, and your friend tried to make it with the cow. I want to party with you, cowboy. If the two of us together, forget it. I’m gonna go out on a limb here. I’m gonna volunteer my leadership to this platoon. An army without leaders is like a foot without a big toe. And Sergeant Hulka isn’t always gonna be here to be that big toe for us. I think that we owe a big round of applause to our newest, bestest buddy, and big toe… Sergeant Hulka.
