So many factors: Quotable one-liners, great actors, great writing. Vote here and decide once and for all which one is the best!

I saw "Blues Brothers" 35~40 times at the drive-inn the year it came out.
I saw "Stripe's" 35~40 times at the drive-inn the year it came out.

I think it would be a close call between CaddyShack and The Blues Brothers. I voted BB's, but ask me on another day and i might give you a different answer.................

yep - two belushi pics, two murray pics, and two of those movies have another SNL cast member.

78-81 were great years for big comedy movies.

dang, after this one is over I think another poll needs to happen - early to mid 80's:

Airplane!
Fast Times at Ridgemont High
Trading Places
+1 other ---nominations?
Link Posted: 2/13/2006 1:56:23 PM EDT
Blues Brothers bar none. The others have great lines but the one I come back to time and again is the Blues Brothers.
Link Posted: 2/13/2006 1:57:39 PM EDT
#4 on the next poll should be "Spinal Tap"

or Python.

Stripes was a lot of fun...plus PJ Soles. You need to get the Extended Cut DVD.

Hey Wang, don't worry about it, it's because you're Jewish.

I voted Caddyshack, with BB coming in a close second.

Gotta consider Porky's here. Blues Brothers is one of my all time favorite movies though..

Anmal House.

I like Caddyshack the best of those choices. Airplane's probably my favorite, the groundbreaker of an entire genre of comedy spoofs.

Blues Brothers is the best movie ever.

I think the movie Arthur (imdb.com/title/tt0082031/) is one of the funniest movies ever and one of my personal favorites.

Airplane is much, much funnier than any of the poll choices.

The Blues Brothers

I love all of the ones listed (and many more, of course), but I will watch all or part of The Blues Brothers any time I catch it while channel surfing, regardless of what else I have to do or watch. It is one of the few comedies I will watch over and over again like that, and one of even fewer movies that my wife enjoys as much as I do. It is one of the most quotable movies in history, at one time had the longest (and most expensive) on-screen car chase, has one of the best casts (especially supporting roles and musical cameos), and has the very best soundtrack of any comedy in movie history IMHO.

+1 what he said. If I come across it on TV I'll at least watch some of it (especially the car chases) even though I have the special edition DVD. The whole movie is watchable multiple times, no slow draggy spots.

Stripes & Animal House = # 2 & 3 in that order. I can watch both all the way thru without channel surfing during the slow parts or fast forwarding the tape/DVD. If channel surfing I have to at least watch the parade ground bit in Stripes. Plus P.J. Soles > Karen Allen

Caddyshack....I'll watch for the Bill Murray parts & the Rodney Dangerfield bits. Not a big Chevy Chase fan.

Animal House by a Very close margin.

"Hey, you screwed up; you trusted us."

"Thanks, I needed that."
