Two other films I forgot to mention. Both tear jerkers:

-Life is Beautiful
-Hotel Rawanda (the true story isn't quite a "noble" and uplifting, but the movie will make you cry)

Shakes the Clown has some pretty funny lines, plus the opening scene with Florance Henderson is priceless. Gotta love how far Mrs Brady fell.

The Gods Must Be Crazy

Hilarious, and with a pertinent message in these times of excessive consumption and greed.

I saw a movie with Jack Lemmon the other day, I think it was called "The Odd Couple". Really brilliant movie, and extremely hilarious :D

I also like "Men of Honour".

The Hangover is constantly funny and endlessly innovative. Every vignette within the movie contains mountains of laughs. Almost every line is bursting with comedy.

In a time of overstuffed 140-minute comedies (looking at you, Mr. Apatow), this is a breath of refreshing air. I can't explain how much I enjoyed this movie, and how much I continue to enjoy it no matter how many times I've seen it. It's simply the funniest movie I've seen for years, possibly decades.

I'm not sure if I can choose an absolute favorite, but my current favorite is "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind". It's got great dialogue, fantastic imagery, and alternately makes me curl up in a fetal position and cry, or laugh out loud at the choices I've made in life. It's good for what ails ya, even when you're not ailing.

Wow, you've got to read the book, to understand what a piece of trash the film was. The heart of the story was ripped right out of the film. While the book is some incredibly powerful writing.
