A Comedy Called Perfection!!

“"I love robbing the English, they're so polite."

How does one distinguish the difference between a masterpiece and just another ordinary comedy? For starters, an ordinary comedy is commonly clich├ęd beyond all comprehension - i.e. characters are standard, events are glaringly foreseeable and the structure is far too formulaic. In addition, an ordinary comedy usually features well-known actors who are so desperate for laughs that they overact (like Will Ferrell, Jim Carrey, and so on) rather than dispersing clever, witty, cerebral dialogue. In an ordinary comedy the laughs are also predominantly forgettable. And finally, an ordinary comedy is funny but nothing further.

“This is my favorite british comedy, even more so than the Monty Python classics. But I'm saddened that it's getting dissed here at listal. 6.8 average? come on, are people simply voting based on the silly title, or have they actually sat down and enjoyed this comedy-robbery-blackmail-double-crossing laugh-til-it-hurts fest?

'Oh no! It's K-k-k-k-KEN coming to K-k-k-k-KILL ME!!'

I honestly can't decide who was the funniest; Cleese, Kline or Palin. All were brilliant. Curtis didn't really have a comic role or memorable lines, but she had total chemistry with the rest of the cast, which made this ensemble that much more enjoyable.
