See If You Agree with WGA’s 10 Funniest Screenplays of All Time

Get prepared for some belly laughs, folks. The Writer’s Guild of America has just announced its picks for the 101 Funniest Screenplays of All Time! The list is a mix of the biggest names in comedy for the last 100 years, from Bridesmaids (#16) to Charlie Chaplin’s Modern Times (#82). The WGA has clearly done their homework on this one, because this is one heck of an eclectic list. Whether you’re into low brow fluff (Superbad is #68) or movies that are more art than comedy (Shakespeare in Love managed to sneak on at #101), the Writer’s Guild truly seems to have taken into account everything that makes us laugh. For the top ten scripts, keep on reading.

10. National Lampoon’s Animal House

The original frat boy comedy definitely deserves a spot of honor. Sure, Delta House’s antics may come off a little stale these days, but you just have to remember that they did it first. Gross out comedy? Check. Sly wit? Totally. The end-all be-all of college comedies? Most definitely.

9. Monty Python and the Holy Grail

The troupe of comedians who call themselves Monty Python are a talented bunch. Seriously, you could watch these guys read the phone book for an hour and it’d almost certainly illicit a chuckle. There best offering, though, was 1975’s Monty Python and the Holy Grail, a series of skits tied together by a single goal: find the magic cup. If you’re in for some endearing, bumbling idiocy, these are some knights you won’t want to miss out on.
