I confessed on the ‘Do you really like that? Honestly?’ thread, (which sits comfortably at the top of the charts), that I didn’t understand why people liked ‘Laurel and Hardy’. Tediously unfunny, imho.
OOAA, as was very evident – masters of their art, precursors of much of successive comedy, a gift that their performances are captured for posterity. Such were the responses of the cognescenti.
Each to their own. But then I was challenged by the good @Douglas to come up with my top 5 films. Not having one to hand, I hastily scanned various online polls to see if there were any I had seen or
enjoyed actually remember laughing at. There were very few, but I just about scraped together a list that passed his muster.
I was troubled. Did this mean I have no sense of humour? Or just don’t like slapstick? Maybe the answer is to put it to the Massive:
Here I sit, arms folded. ‘ Entertain me!’ I bellow. If the prospect doesn’t discourage you, please would you post some clips from movies you can’t help laughing at, and I’ll let you know if I can uncover a funny bone under my middle-aged spread.
Thank you kindly!
