    Are We There Yet? It's about a guy that falls in love with this woman(simple basic senerio) but he hates kids and she has two. The woman he loves has him wrapped around his finger and he offers to drive her kids from california(i think) to canada. The kids try to get rid of all their mothers suiters in hopes that she and their dad will get back together, so that brand new suv the guy bought has some pretty interesting things happen to it. I would recommend this movie.

    lol it's the only funny movie I can think of right now because my brain has been mighty foggy lately.

    "What About Bob"! I am surprised that this one hasn't already been mentioned. This movie made my sides hurt! Bill Murray and Richard Dryfus has never been better.

    In no order, just what my fibrofoggy mind comes up with:

    Young Frankenstein (just about any of the old Mel Brooks movies - Blazing Saddles, etc.)

    Spinal Tap!!! Can't believe no one's mentioned this one! and anything else with or by Christopher Guest

    Spaceballs

    Ice Age I and Shrek I &II (animated)

    The 1st Episode of Mork and Mindy ("Fly and be Free!!!")

    Airplane

    Ghostbusters I

    The Man with 2 Brains, The Jerk, any old Steve Martin movie

    Parenthood (great fun for those w/young uns)

    Sorry so many of these are so old - the last 8 years have been devoted to raising Triplets +1 so everything is usually in the 8 and under category!!
