City Lights (1931)
The way I see it, this is Chaplin's best work, not only because it is Chaplin's greatest portrayal of the Tramp in his career, but because of its perfect mix of hilarious and intelligent slapstick comedy and a very emotional, romantic story. With no doubt this is my favorite romantic comedy of all time and one of the few movies I can rank a perfect score.

The Lethal Weapon series is one of the greatest series of films out there. Crazy action scenes, hilarious moments and the best duo in the history of cinema.

The first "Lethal Weapon" movie ranks in my lists as high as these two. However I don't consider it to be in the genre of Comedy as much as these in spite of having its funny moments.

The Circus (1928)
Hilarious as always, but with a more touching and dramatic tone. Chaplin in one of his best portrayals of the Tramp (just behind City Lights), with the most interesting female lead and love interest of his movies, in one of his more underrated works, honestly.

Funny and interesting enough, this was his only movie being awarded an Oscar... in this case for Best Music. My favorite movie of the 20's.

Modern Times (1936)
Regarded by many as one of the funniest movies of all time as Chaplin's funniest work. I don't completely agree, but it's one of the greatest comedies I've watched that's for sure. Slapstick comedy at its best with interesting themes behind it: society's industrialisation and its dependence upon it, the american dream, friendship and determination.

One of my favorite comedies, on my Chaplin's top 3, on my 1930 top 10, a movie worthy of praise for its comedy and intelligence.

Aladdin (1992)
Another memorable movie, the characters are simply genial (ha get it?) and the highest point of this movie is the humour, while having a pretty good story as well. The Genie is one of the most memorable disney characters and the most hilarious thats for sure. It also has great animation and one of the best soundtracks, second only to The Lion King's.

Finding Nemo (2003)
Oh my what a cute story in a fast-paced and even thrilling adventure through the ocean! If you ask me, a rare breed of film, one that can mix elements like fantasy, humour, adventure, suspense, drama and fish as main characters with a tremendous force of will (or a forgetful memory!).

Seriously, this movie surprised in an outstanding good way becoming one of my favorite animated movies of all time.

A pleasant surprise, this movie is a genre by itself. One of the most inventive and original movies I've seen recently, let alone hilarious! Most of the jokes are just too funny! Not to mention the huge entertainment value of this movie with all the fighting, romance, and stuff!

Seriously one of the best this year, if not just for the well-done innovation alone.

This was unexpectedly original. Not like anything I have seen before, even among musicals, and I was already familiarized with the famous singing in the rain scene. It was still a great surprise and a very entertaining movie. Gene Kelly was a phenomenal artist.

Greatest cast I've seen in the 40's. The characters are flawed, but incredibly likable and the actors make them come to life with a contagious energy. In all honesty, there's no romantic comedy like this.

This movie was definitely the trigger for my passion of Jimmy Stewart.

This is one of those movies that are not done today anymore. This movie is a genre by itself, I guess Buster Keaton, like Chaplin, has a very special touch that makes his movies original and different than the others.
