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.
