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.

Big thank you, Dan. :D
Did you check the rules? I made up the rule one per user. Maybe later enhanced, if not enough users are interested in. So which of these movies you mentioned would you pick as your number one? I f I have to enhance the rule, you might define a special order.

I'm thinking about doing something similar (tho not identical) to this for less well-known Sci-Fi titles.

I'm running the idea by you first, in case you have plans to do something along those lines already.

Thank you for contacting my about this similar idea. That's kind.
I did not think on doing the same idea on scifi-movies.
It's ok for me, please do your scifi-idea. I'm curious about it. :D

Breu,
I would LOVE to contribute, but I can't... most of the comedy movies that I like have been rated by much more than 50,000 people.
Sorry.

Breumaster, my condolences. 

You absolutely should take as much time as you need to cope with the situation.

Thank you guys.
We knew it for longer, it was foreseeable, but when it comes, it hurts. And it needs a few days to become clear with it. But in the end it is what we all will face (hopefully very much) later. Thank you for your kind words.

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?

This time the IMDb poll board users present their favorite 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).

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.
