Doug (vo): Number 7 -- '''(The) Blues Brothers'''. How can you be a Chicagoan and not love this movie? If you go down any Chicago street and say the line "We're on a mission from God.", everyone knows what you're talking about. It's a simple premise: an orphanage needs money, Jake and Elwood try to get it through band gigs, yet somehow all this shit happens. I just love how two little people can cause such a pileup of cars, trucks, police, military, and on top of that, it's all real. All the cars piling up are really piling up. All the people they got are really the people they got, no CG at all. That makes it all the more massive and all the more hilarious. Through a slow but sturdy pace, we see how all this trouble comes about and why so many people want to get these guys. I just love how huge it gets and it's so funny knowing that all this chaos is caused by just these two people, who in it of themselves are hilarious. On top of that, the jokes are great, the music is great, the acting is great, it's just an all-around great film. ''Blues Brothers'': music, dancing, comedy, and a shit load of cars, what more do you need?

Doug (vo): And my number 1 funniest comedy is... '''[[What You Never Knew About Hot Fuzz|Hot Fuzz]]'''. I know it's weird to put such a current movie as my favorite comedy, but every time I see it, there's always like a dozen jokes that I miss. I just love how fast, blatant, subtle, direct, verbal, and visual these jokes are. I think every joke know to man is tried out in this movie. And they're thrown at you a mile a minute. I love the pacing, I love the story, and I love how it all seems to be building up to a gigantic punchline which also serves as the climax for the movie. It's so over the top yet there's also a lot of little jokes happening that you miss the first time around, and even the second time around. I've seen this movie about five times and I still don't think I've seen all the jokes. They're so fast and so clever that you have no choice but to go back and watch it over and over again. Thankfully, the characters are well-written enough to support several viewings as well. They're funny, likable and enjoyable to watch, even when they're batshit insane. Now unfortunately to talk about it too much would be giving away a lot of the jokes and the storylines, but I can easily say that I have never laughed harder and more consistently than I have watching ''Hot Fuzz'', the all-time funniest movie I've ever seen. Thanks for watching, I hope you enjoyed my picks, if you haven't seen any of them yet, check them out.
