PS: The IMDb Poll Board User's Beloved Little Comedy Movies

Intro:

This time the IMDb poll board users present their most beloved little comedies. We all know the big comedies, which were pretty successful like Life of Brian (1979), The Big Lebowski (1998), or The Grand Budapest Hotel (2014). But there a few comedies didn't reach such a wide audience. Which of these comedies rated by 50.000 or less users with a rating above 6/10 is your favorite? If you haven't seen one of them, vote for the one you're most interested in. Discuss here.

Rules:

The idea is to collect as many really funny movies that are not so widely known to present them as an alternate to the total mainstream movies, the kings. They can be nasty or rude, no matter.
Only comedy movies, rated 6.5/10 or higher with less than 50.000 ratings. One movie per user - if there are not so many contributers, this rule can be enhanced. They might be comedies you can watch over and over again and still laugh.

Good poll! I can't believe I forgot to add mine. I made a little list a while ago. 

May I suggest one small edit to the intro?

Thank you ruby. I can't remember to have written it so wrongly. Sometimes I got the feeling that the database mixes something up. Thank for showing up the errors. I've cut the second "their" and the other word.

A belated comment my pick would be for Dick (1999) with for just missing the vote threshold honorable mentions going to Love Me If You Dare (2003), Yesterday (2019) and That Thing You Do! (1996).

In my opinion, there seems to be a fair amount British sleeper comedies that  could fit the bill for this list, such as Pride (I) (2014), Another Year (2010), Last Christmas (2019),  Waking Ned Devine (1998) and others. They seem to have the two main opposing qualities, 1) an endearing, quirky sense of humor and 2) a high rating with a suppressed vote total not indicative of the quality.

I think using indie comedies would have been a better determinant than the vote threshold, as it seems to not favor older movies and puts a greater emphasis on little comedies that went onto to be well-known, like My Big Fat Greek Wedding (2002).
