Annie Hall: Woody Allen's most cinematic comedy (or is it his funniest good film?) beat out The Jerk by a hair to move on to round two. Allen's brand of nervous, New York intellectual comedy reached its pinnacle with the sweet and side-splitting Annie Hall, with Diane Keaton's marvelous performance thrusting her into "America's Sweetheart" territory.

Groundhog Day: This Bill Murray classic went up against a very tough first-round competitor in This is Spinal Tap, and crushed it with 76% of the vote. Are you ready to relive Groundhog Day all the way to the finals? Visit our Groundhog Day quotes page for more.
