  Certain movies come along and many people take them for granted. This should not have been one of them.

  The Coens' first full-fledged delve into their mix of wit, style, and unique hilarity.
Evil Dead 2: Dead by Dawn (1987)
Not Rated
  Disguised as a campy horror movie, this is one of the best performance by a physical actor ever.
Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas (Criterion Collection) (1998)
  Not considered to be a serious comedic effort, but I'll put the Depp/Del Toro effort up against almost any other duo in terms of precision.
Bottle Rocket (Criterion) (1996)
  The reason these guys are stars. See also anything they've done after.

The Addams Family (1991)
  Not since Airplane! has a movie offered such a high volume of consecutive riotous laughs.
M*A*S*H (1970)
  That smirk on your face while watching this gem is similar to that feeling of being in the right place at the right time.
Harold and Maude (Criterion) (1971)
  For obvious reasons. Mostly for the balance between comedy and sentimental emotion.
Swingers (1996)
  Like a Woody Allen-movie without Woody Allen.
Happiness (1998)
Not Rated
  The episode of Full House that never aired.
Top Secret! (1984)
