Tournament Showdown – Movie Comedies (Final Four – VOTE NOW!)

The final four is set, and it’s three oldies and a fourth movie that can be considered new compared to the others even though it’s over 10 years old.

With the elite eight voting is over only four movies remain in their quest to be called the Funniest Movie of All-Time. Four of the top five overall seeds of the tournament, #1 Animal House, #2 Caddyshack, #3 There’s Something About Mary and #5 Airplane! all advanced to the semifinals. All but Caddyshack won easily, as the second overall barely escaped upset at the hands of the 10 seed The Naked Gun, thus robbing us of a potential all-Zucker final.

Here’s the recap of the previous round…

ELITE EIGHT RESULTS (with percentage of overall vote listed after the winner)

(1) Animal House – 69% def. (8) Blazing Saddles
(5) Airplane! – 56% def. (13) Old School

(3) There’s Something About Mary – 85% def. (38) Meet the Parents
(2) Caddyshack – 52% def. (10) Naked Gun Series

So now it’s time to vote in the Final Four the funniest movie of all-time and again your votes will determine a winner. Take a few seconds to look over the matchups and vote for your choice in each to advance to the finals. Voting for this round is open until Sunday night 10pm (est), with voting for the final four to be opened immediately afterwards.

Pop the popcorn, turn down the lights and let’s decide together which movies make us laugh the most.

And now the next round…

FINAL FOUR MATCHUPS

(1) Animal House vs. (5) Airplane!

MY VOTE: Airplane! – hard to choose now with four great semifinalists, but Airplane is just classic and gave us great comedic performances Leslie Nielsen, Robert Stack and Lloyd Bridges amongst others. Animal House is great, but it’s all about Belushi there, and I just don’t think he can carry the whole load here.

(2) Caddyshack vs. (3) There’s Something About Mary

MY VOTE: Caddyshack – ironically, as I’m typing this, Caddyshack is on TV, so maybe I’m being biased here. Isn’t it weird how much Cameron Diaz’ stock dropped in the past ten years. When she first came out and did movies like The Mask and Mary, we all loved her. Guys were crazy about her. Now, not so much, or not at all. I think I’d rather hang out with Magda.

Happy voting!
