Tournament Showdown – Movie Comedies (Finals – VOTE NOW!)

The finals are set, and say what you will about Bravo’s terrible list of movies, but it’s going to be #1 vs. #2 for the first time ever in Tournament Showdown history.  Granted, this is the first showdown, but still didn’t expect to have the top two face off this soon.

Unfortunately we must say goodbye to two classic comedies, as both Airplane! and There’s Something About Mary both got tripped up in the Final Four and will have to settle for playing for the bronze.

Here’s the recap of the previous round…

FINAL FOUR RESULTS (with percentage of overall vote listed after the winner)

(1) Animal House – 67% def. (5) Airplane!

(2) Caddyshack – 57% def. (3) There’s Something About Mary

So now it’s time to vote in the Finals (and Consolation) for 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 to be declared the FUNNIEST MOVIE OF ALL-TIME.  Voting for this round is open until next Sunday night 10pm (est).

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

And now the finals!!!

CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH

(1) Animal House vs. (2) Caddyshack

MY VOTE: Caddyshack – I was hoping Airplane! would have been here, but if you’re asking me to choose between these two classic, both from around the same era, it’s an almost no-brainer to me.  I’ve said enough about these two laugh out loud films, so now it’s up to you to make the final call.  Good luck to both competitors.

CONSOLATION MATCH

(3) There’s Something About Mary vs. (5) Airplane!

MY VOTE: Airplane! – a good undercard bout, as you’ve got a film catered to two different generations with the same sense of humor.  However, Airplane was my favorite going in to the tournament.

Happy voting!

Tournament Showdown – Movie Comedies (First Round, Part 2 – VOTE NOW)

In case you missed the original reason behind this tournament, click here.

The first half of the first round voting is over, with a few upsets in the making (at least seed-wise). Top-seeded Animal House destroyed Anchorman in a battle I thought would be much closer, but #4 seed South Park was the round’s biggest upset loser falling to the big bomber Happy Gilmore. Other favorites falling early were #16 Big and #20 Legally Blonde, which lost by the biggest margin 92% to 8% of the vote to Office Space. As for my picks, I went 11-5 in predicting the winners, which is pretty much right on par with how well I pick the first round of March Madness.  Although I am sad to see Young Frankenstein bow out in the first round, I had high hopes for that to make it far.

So now it’s time for the second half of Round One to pick 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 second round.  Voting for the bottom half of the bracket is open until Tuesday night 10pm (est), with voting for the second round to be opened immediately after.

Here’s a quick look at the top half of the bracket first round results…
