question of the day: What are your all-time favorite and least favorite comedy movies?
Reader Anne-Kari recently suggested that we talk about

So that’s what we’ll do all this week, starting with:
What are your all-time favorite and least favorite comedy movies?
As pure comedy goes, I might pick Midnight Run as my favorite. It never ceases to be hilarious even upon the 100th re-viewing, and it’s endlessly quotable, with applications for all sorts of real-life situations. “There were some good-lookin’ chickens back there” comes in more handy than you might think.
Least favorite: Anything Adam Sandler has touched, with so few exceptions that they’re barely worth mentioning.
