I'm not engrish, but alot of good movies come out of england.
Monty Pythons "holy grail" has to be one of the funniest movies ever. And Lock Stock and Snatch are great. Especially Snatch.
A much higher percentage of the movies from England are good, compared to Hollywood. (IMHO)
Triskaidekaphobia - Fear of Triscuits
Odd topic for a site called Hardware Analysis. Nevermind.
Shawn of the dead kicks ARSE ( that would be ass to you Americans who insist on butchering the English language. BTW Colour is spelt with a "U" in it. If your going to break away with a war of Independance get your own language or at least use ours properly).
I don't think it the funniest thing ever and I do agree that Monty Python is funnier. But are you saying that just because Python is funner that Shawn shouldn't get a mention?
As for your different American sence of humour HMMMM!!!!! England had a fantastic series called Coupling, that one of your networks bought and with the same scripts managed to completly *%&^$ up. I'm not saying you don't have funny shows, but I do wonder how your Live audiences can laugh at such badly acted slapstick crap sometimes.
Hooray for Americas most succesful comedy export Friends. Funny to the last series.
I'm a huge fan of British comedy, and comedic sense, over "American". I'm far more apt to watch Blackadder, Thin Blue Line, Keeping Up Appearances, Are You Being Served?, MPFC, and the like on BBCAmerica than I am to watch these innane "sit-coms" on the major US networks.
Lock, Stock, and Two Smoking Barrels is hilarious, as are Snatch, Trainspotting, and the like. Strange Brew (Canadian) is a classic. The old Pink Panther films are a riot (American production, English actor, right?).
Eddie Izzard is one of my favorite comedians, even though you might wonder why I'm applauding a transvestite.
It's all in the delivery, I guess. I'm far more keen on "Black" comedy... Def Jam, BET Comic View, Chris Rock, Barbershop... things like that than typical "American" comedy. Also "Jewish" comedy or "Borough" (New York City segment) comedy has that same appeal to me over "Left Coast" (California / Hollywood) attempts at humor. I laugh my arse off at this stuff because you can believe that that stuff actually happens in real life... day to day. We're so d@mned politically correct and "sensitive" to "people's feelings" in the US nowadays that most the humor is gross-out humor, or horribly contrived and constructed. Gone are psychological innuendo and doublespeak, which are far funnier than the blatant crap of today's films. I think that's what made Friends so endearing... is that there _was_ a level of psychological innuendo that ran amongst the six friends, and their acquaintences. There was an understanding between them, that could even be unspoken, but if you didn't understand it (because you weren't one of the Friends), then you never "got it". And we, the audience, were "in on it", because we were the seventh friend.
But yeah, you Brits can laugh all you want about George Dubyah Bush... I do... but I voted for him twice and I'd vote for him again if need be.
Want to speed up commerce in the USA? Privatize the US Post Office, and turn it into a free-enterpise company that has to actually compete on the open market, instead of hide behind the government's skirt.
Funniest movie ever IMO is Kung Pow... Man, if you have the DVD version, the subtitles plus what they say and the movement of their mouths has no relation at all hahaha! It's just hilarious... Then Kung Fu Hustle comes in second.
We could put up wanted posters all over school: Have you seen this prick? Report immediately to Beula Balbricker. Do not attempt to apprehend this prick, as it is armed and dangerous. It was last seen hanging out in the girls' locker room at Angel Beach High School.
