    1. Bringing Up Baby
    2. Duck Soup
    3. Some Like It Hot
    4. Groundhog Day

    Duck Soup probably would be my No. 6

    These films are probably not mainstream enough to gain votes from people (which is why I didn't bother nominating them), but I do think they are amongst the greatest comedy films out there...

    1. Sideways (2004).
    2. I soliti ignoti (1958).
    3. Sátántangó (1994).
    4. La Grande Vadrouille (1966).
    5. Modern Times (1936).
    The Winner Takes It All,
    The Loser Better Call Saul.

    I need to check out La Grande Vadrouille, but Big Deal on Madonna Street is indeed great.

    I posted early in the tournament that we should just cancel all voting and give the title to Monty Python and the Holy Grail.
    So, yeah. I'm a bit happy over these scores.

    I actually think Life of Brian is the superior Monty Python movie... But that's just me!
    There's a fine line between stupid and clever.

    You can't really dust for vomit.

    Sideways would have gotten some votes.

    What would be your top five comedies from the nominee list?

    And so just like that, our Best Comedy Film of All Time is: Monty Python and the Holy Grail!

    I'm sure some expected this result (I didn't), and some wish other movies had made it this far, but it's the journey that's the point. Hopefully, many of the participants discovered some titles (especially during the nominations and the early rounds) that they'll seek out now, since some of us deemed them to be worthy enough.

    To cap things off, here's an appropriately timed video, from about a month back:
