I remember seeing Out Cold when I was in middle school. Was funny then, dunno how I'd feel about it now. same w/ dumb&dumber, billy madison, and tommy boy.

still havent seen Rocky I, unforgiven, or dirty harry. adding those to my netflix.

gran torino was aight but the slurs got old quick.
Spoiler
actually i remember disliking gran torino a lot, the acting was so awkward sometimes. the asian crew was so bad overall. it was impossible to sympathize with the hmong boy, which i thought was the whole point. he was the worst, like when he raged at the door because clint eastwood wouldnt let him fight, that scene was just embarrassing.

HAHA your right, he is pretty racist, but then again that's what the movie is about.

Out Cold, Tommy Boy, Dumb and Dumber, and Billy Madison definately deserve a replay, especially if you don't remember much about them.

Out Cold was the first Cinema movie with Zach Galifianakis.  He's the reason it's so funny.

How old are you?  Cuz... comedies definately were around before them.

I'll grant you Jason Segel, and Paul Rudd, but Seth Rogen has kinda worn on me.

Knocked Up was good with Seth Rogen, Paul Rudd, and Jason Segel, it's one of my favorites.  Seth Rogen also wrote Superbad a movie about his high school years, which is also on my list of favorites.  Pineapple Express was hilarious as well... but i always find in a Seth Rogen movie I like the supporting actors more than Rogen.

Here's a few more off the top of my head though.

Galaxy Quest

Ferris Bueller's Day Off (A FRICKEN CLASSIC)

Uncle Buck (John Candy at his peak)

Animal House (Toga Toga Toga)

Super Troopers (Most have seen this one)

Role Models (More for you younger viewers, but still VERY funny)
