    I enjoyed American Pie, but Galaxy Quest _always_ wins.
    And I utterly *loathe* A Christmas Story, I almost voted against it out of pure spite, and I haven't seen its competitor. But I thought better and skipped instead.

    And YES to Shaolin Soccer! One of the best movies I discovered on Netflix. Shame for Joe Dirt, if it were paired against most anything else in that bracket I would have selected it.

    If you haven't seen The Ice Pirates, I can highly recommend it. Sci-fi comedy schlock from the 80's, with a surprisingly good plot.

    ...and Space Herpes.

    I tried out adding the imdb links to each individual movie in the previous set, but I think I'm going to scrap that. That was _really_ labor-intensive and time consuming.

    And in that last round came the first (but I'm sure it won't be the last) travesty, in my own opinion. A Fish Called Wanda was WAY funnier than Coming to America. ;-)

    Arsenic and Old Lace, while a good movie, just makes me think of the Runaways comic.

    Kingsman as a Comedy? I would say it was pretty serious overall, but it did have some parody/humor to it.

    Well, it has as much chance at winning a Golden Globe for it as The Martian... oh, wait.

    I can point to the specific head-splodey moment when Kingsman went full-on comedy. ;-)


    Ha ha, I didn't even consider The Martian (though it's an award-winning comedy). You're right, I should have thrown it in there just for fun.
