    For a good laugh, everyone should give these a chance:

    **These movies made me laugh like mad in my teens, and they are TIMELESS!

    great in any language...it's mostly farce and slapstick, (no particular order)

    1) "It's a Gift" by W.C. Fields (great 'park' scene)

    2) "The Great Dictator" by Charlie Chaplin (Chaplin knew Hitler was a monkey nut job in the 1940's...even Hitler himself had to watch it a few times-doubt if he found it funny-BUT IT IS- Hitler and the other nut, Mussolini in a FOOD FIGHT)

    3) "Duck Soup" by the Marx Brothers (a laugh riot from beginning to end, with the classic 'mirror scene')

    **and of course the more recent material by 'Monty Python'. Is there anything out there that compares with these geniuses now?

    Watch, and laugh your arse off....and comment please, if you've seen any:
