New Research Lists the Funniest Movies of All Time. But What’s Missing?
What’s the funniest movie you’ve seen this year? Did the old phrase “laugh a minute” apply? The movie subscription service Lovefilm has released new research they say confirms the comedy “Airplane” is the funniest movie of all time.
A panel of members of the service recorded the total number of times each film generated a laugh, then divided it by the films’ total length in minutes to calculate the precise “laugh a minute” rating.
Using the “laugh a minute” score, here’s the top ten funniest movies:
- 1. Airplane – 3 Laughs A Minute
- 2. The Hangover – 2.4 Laughs A Minute
- 3. The Naked Gun: From the Files of Police Squad ! – 2.3 Laughs A Minute
- 4. Superbad – 1.9 Laughs A Minute
- 5. Borat – 1.7 Laughs A Minute
- 6. Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy – 1.6 Laughs A Minute
- 7. American Pie – 1.5 Laughs A Minute
- 8. Bridesmaids – 1.4 Laughs A Minute
- 9. Shaun of the Dead – 1.3 Laughs A Minute
- 10. Life of Brian – 1.2 Laughs A Minute
By the way, the funniest movie for our family is The great Outdoors.I really enjoyed Planes, Trains, and automobiles, too. Maybe it was a John Candy thing but those movies made me bust a gut!
