The list of films doesn't include the film that instantly came to my mind: After Hours (1985), directed by Martin Scorsese. That's what I wanted to vote for. I know comedy is really a matter of personal taste; and a style of comedy that one person finds very funny might not seem at all funny to someone else. There are a few films on the poll list (e.g., Police Academy and Spaceballs) that I think are stupid, silly, juvenile, and irritatingly unfunny. Porky's is the same for me. But lots of other people find them hilarious.

OMG Peewee's last!? Raising Arizona!? Can't choose one, how about a 5 to 10 way tie? Atleast its not as big of a mess as trying to rank ALL the Godzilla movies 1-30 something! That one probably had people doing A LOT of homework! (not just #1 but rank each one "good" to worst)

Tough choice. My vote will probably go to Christmas Vacation, Beverly Hills Cop, or Airplane

Good question, I don't know. There are a lot of good 80s comedies. I did research and I didn't see this movie among the best. Maybe not that popular.
