The funniest movie ever is Todd Solandz's 'Happiness'.

It's wildly offensive and yet hilarious at the same time. You find yourself laughing at the most disturbing moments. It's probably my favourite film.

I remember first seeing it in New York in 1999. Mump and I fell about laughing throughout whilst the rest of the American audience just looked at us appalled. I don't think many people 'got' it.

I once watched it on DVD and when it finished watched it all over again.

It's amazing.

The two other films that made me literally fall off my seat laughing are 'Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan' which is so funny it hurts. You can't believe what you're watching. He should have won the Oscar.

Also 'South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut'. My jaw hit the floor about 2 minutes in and stayed dropped throughout.

No Woody Allen movies mentioned yet? Not sure which one I'd pick, but some of his early movies were very, very funny.

He's been virtually unwatchable since Annie Hall (1977), with very few exceptions (Midnight in Paris was bearable). I refuse to go to any more of his or Adam Sandler's (who is now totally unfunny).

Probably mentioned already, and Black Comedy to be sure, but my favorite is Dr. Strangelove.
