Comedy Madness

It ain't perfect, considering the two greatest comedies of all time aren't even on here (Bottle Rocket and Waiting for Guffman), but it's a nice little exercise.

I swear filling out this bracket was harder than most of my law school exams. Does he have a name or should I call him lawyer? Here's my FF:

Tom Ace
Fletch
Airplane (Some Koch-family love)
Fast Times

I like sex.

poophop, I flicked over to it real quick, to the 50-yard-line joint subcommittee meeting...and instead of "marijuana on one, reefer on two," Pink says something like "Mister Rogers on one, Russia on two." WHAT?! I immediately flipped right back to Modern Marvels.

Bobby, who you got in the finals and winning? Is it a family production? I love Airplane, hate the production, though.

Hoobs, I knew you'd pick Ghostbusters. I just knew it. How BS is the no Guffman? Just talk like a normal person...

Wait, females read this blog? Wait, at least one female reads this blog and has three of the same movies in her Final Four?

What are you doing this weekend, Anonymous SWF?

lebowski
fletch
tap
jerk (they're all outta you)

tough seeding pitting Ms. Stanwyck against the nihilists (they believe in nothing), as either could take the finals, but Lebowski takes it over Tap. I almost didn't finish the bracket, cause well sometimes ... best leave it unsolved. Oh, and if demographics are important, SBM 25, PA native, hobbies include playing the futures market, steak sandwich, steak sandwich, and spousal abuse.

so a second round match up between vacation and fletch that is chevy vs chevy then you might have a match up of the above winner vs caddyshack. chevy is getting screwed and he does not have much left to hang onto.

caddyshack winner
bull durham runner up
ferris bueller
the jerk

After doing this bracket 13 times, inconclusively, I decided that I refuse to do it because there were some movies not included that should have been and movies in there that should not have been.

Movies that should have been in:
Coming to America
Major League
Waiting for Guffman
See No Evil, Hear No Evil
Half Baked

Movies that should not have been in:
Bowfinger
Election Day
Broadcast News

Who the hell made this list up? It's a travesty.

Speaking of stupid people in an unrelated note.....

Some camera crew was in my office yesterday shooting a commercial for my company, and they came into my department (Customer Service) because they wanted to get a shot of us talking to customers. So they go to the guy next to me and ask if he can pretend he is talking to a client. So the cameraman asks him "So, do your calls come through the phone?" Marc, the guy next to me, says in a deadpan tone "Yeah. The phone rings, I pick it up and say hello" and the cameraman says "Oh, okay, cool."

Morons.

Good work everybody, thanks for playing...

Matty, your abstention is noted, but quit being a pussy and fill it out. This thing doesn't have my all-time two favorite comedies, but I just noted it and did the bracket anyway, ya girl. Funny story about the film crew though, so that makes up for your silliness.

JRH, a Weird Science quite? Hoobs and I always use "Time to pay the Fiddler" from that flick. Goddamn, Bill Paxton at his finest.

Gritz, I thought you were Fletch man...Caddyshack over Fletch?

Finally, 5 fucking tries to post a comment.

Anyway, to not be a pussy, I filled out the bracket and Lebowski won in a landslide against the Jerk in the finals. It was Lebowski (Chicago bracket)-Caddyshack (Albuquerque bracket)and The Jerk (Austin bracket)-Office Space (Syracuse bracket) in the Final Four.

This bracket was completed while doing the ugly woman, twigs and berries tucked neatly yet uncomfortably between the legs.

I had Office Space narrowly edging out Caddyshackin the final, with Vacation and Airplane rounding out the Final Four. I didn't like the bracket, in addition to things left out, and even more things that didn't belong, the seeding made some of the best matchups come early on. Office Space vs, Fast Times in the Sweet 16 and Fletch vs Vacation in the fucking second round.

i am a fletch man but you add chevy and bill together that wins over chevy alone but youve got me thinking it could go almost either way

Yeah like I said, it ain't perfect, but it was a fun exercise. Maybe if I get bored one day I'll put something together. Oh yeah, I have no computer skills. Whatever.

Really late on this. My complaint is the seeds. Old School vs. Tommy Boy in the first round? Makes no sense. My FF:

Dumb and Dumber
Vacation
Spinal Tap
9 to 5

From there it's impossible, but I'll go Vacation over D&D and 9 to 5 over ST. But Vacation over 9to5.
