      Some of my favourites are:

      What About Bob
      Dead To Me
      Hot Fuzz
      Shaun of the Dead
      Mrs Doubtfire
      Austin Powers

  2. Good choices! I love that there are so many classics in the list. My Big Fat Greek Wedding always gives me a LoL! 🤣

  3. I like that others named great movies I’d not forgotten, but didn’t remember… ya know? Anyway, great list…especially when you add Kristian’s in too!
    Ben loves the Will Ferrell movies. Blades Of Glory was on repeat for a few weeks.😉😂😂

  4. Holy Grail is just a timeless work of pure genius. Often the cartoon based movies are overlooked comedy masterpieces. Ice Age, Monsters Inc, Penguins of Madagascar, Chicken Run, Lego Movies, Were – Rabbit, Despicable Me…..

  5. Not sure if it’s the new editor or my iPad but this post took longer to load up and some of the number formatting was out a little. I had to pull one post yesterday as it looked ok but when I posted it the live version was format hell. The new editor is clearly working well or maybe I’m just getting old….

    1. Just checked on my iPad also, seems to load well … l am still not overly happy with the laggy aspect or the way it freezes and refuses to acknowledge saving … but thanks for the heads up 🙂
