Monty Python and the Holy Grail: The film that defined the absurdist comedy genre trounced every opponent we threw at it. First, it beat modern cult favorite Wet Hot American Summer, then the 90s film that launched the careers of Vince Vaughn and Jon Favreau, Swingers, followed by the beloved The Big Lebowski.

Airplane!: Shirley, you must have known Airplane! would go far in this tournament! The spoofy pièce de résistance beat out Diner, Rushmore, and Groundhog Day to make it to the finals. Check out our Airplane! quotes page.
