Here’s a selection of some comments we’ve already received to help get you thinking about your personal favourite...
‘What no “Stripes” with Bill Murray?? One of my favourites.’ – Claire
‘Whether you like the movie or not, “MASH” should be in… It was a political bomb at that time. And first of its kind.’ – Desman
‘The Three Stooges!!!!! They were, after all, originally in theatres, even though their stuff was not feature-length. In my humble opinion, 90 per cent of the stuff they made around three-quarters of a century ago is still WAY funnier than 90 per cent of the so-called "comedy" that comes out nowadays.’ – msdoni
‘“Anvil - The Story of Anvil” is better than “Spinal Tap” because it's real.’ – Darren N
‘I would have liked to have seen “Hellzapoppin'” in the list. A film way ahead of its time. “Mrs Jones!… Mrs Jones!”’ – Jim Bartlett
