    I’m with Race. Airplane followed by Caddy shack and Naked Gun.

    Everything listed is pretty much a classic. Porkys is great just because of all the nudity alone.

    Fast times at Ridgemont high

    Porkys is weird

    I loved Revenge of the Nerds as a young pubescent boy but when I got older I realized there was technically a rape in the Space house and the secret video of the “pies” is extremely uncomfortable

    I don't put Fast Times in the straight comedy bucket. It's got some good malarkey and what not, but still...

    Jaimie Lee's 80's boobs are all timers.

    Feeling good, Billy Ray.

    The Naked Gun
    I had a hard time picking between Airplane and Naked Gun. Went with the latter because Priscilla Presley.

    I'll be the dickhead who picks Cousin Eddie and Christie Brinkley.






    If I ever meet @CFetters_Nacho_Lover in person (apparently we were in the vicinity of each other at the Rose Bowl) I'm gonna say to him "Nacho, you look like you could use a cool one" and then hand over a half drunk Banquet Beer.

    I would have pegged both Airplane and Caddyshack as 70s movies that dribbled into the 80s

    Carter was still President when both films were released.

    If I have to try and think about the hardest I've ever laughed at a movie, I'm probably going to forget the top 10. But the ones that stick out in my mind are the puppet-fucking sex scene in Team America: World Police; the back-to-back hilarious sex scenes in MacGruber; and the scene in Pee Wee's Big Adventure in which he's on a hog outside the biker bar, they're all saying goodbye to him, he twists the throttle, immediately crashes into a billboard, and they cartwheel a dummy Pee Wee out from behind. The timing and execution of that last gag is so impeccable that it gets me every tim.

    Taken in their entirety, though, Naked Gun and Airplane are in a dead heat from this list.

    I was a wee lad in the 80's but have seen most on the list of nominees. 80's is not a super strong decade if this is the best of comedy, IMO.

    I almost wrote in Pee Wee’d Big Adventure as a joke.

    You shut your dirty whore mouth.

    80’s the greatest decade of the last two centuries.

    The 80s were a glorious time to be a Kalifag. It kinda sucks now. No offense @RaceBannon
