Airplane!: The goofy comedy that defines the genre, Airplane! gave an authoritative whooping to Diner in the first round to become the tournament's first upset. The movie that made a star out of Leslie Nielsen is jam-packed with some of the best comedy quotes of all time. Take a look at our Airplane! quotes page for more.


Rushmore: You just gotta find a movie you love, and promote it for the rest of your life. For me, that's Rushmore. The movie that set Jason Schwartzman and Wes Anderson on a path to stardom, and set Bill Murray on a path to a redefined career as the introspective immensely fallible comedic straight man, Rushmore absolutely deserves to be in the conversation for greatest comedy of all time.
