Awesome. MSNBC is doing a comedy movie version of March Madness. (bracket here) You really get screwed in a couple of places — being forced to choose between incredibly funny movies very early: Animal House vs. Austin Powers, Fletch vs. Wayne’s World, Swingers vs. Best in Show, for example. When I was forced to choose between favorites, I went with the “laugh-out-loud” factor. My personal tourney finished like this:
- Vacation over Bull Durham
- Vacation over Ferris Bueller’s Day Off
It was painful to try to choose between Old School and Ghostbusters! I don’t think it was fair to have a Saturday Night Live bracket and force them all to compete so early. I also can’t agree that When Harry Met Sally and Dr. Strangelove are even in the mix … Great movies, to be sure, but I don’t see how they’d make it into the top 64 comedies of all time. WHMS is more of a generic “chick-flick” than a comedy, and DS is really only funny in a non-funny way. But I guess that’s why we have brackets, right? Who’s your winner?
