#96 (AFI):
Sons of the Desert

Year: 1933

Directed by: Lloyd French, William A. Seiter

Written by: Frank Craven, Byron Morgan

Starring: Stan Laurel, Oliver Hardy

Seanbaby: In 1930, comedy technology hadn't advanced much past the bonk, and movies like this were innovative. But the only people that would laugh at this movie today had better check with their doctor before they try it. Keeping this movie on the Top 100 Funniest Films list is like Consumer Reports adding Horse Drawn Carriage to their list of Top 100 Greatest Automobiles.

Erik: The entire cast and crew of 1933's Sons of the Desert are now dead. Once again AFI, HAHAHAHAHA.

Kthor: Laurel and Hardy. You see, oneís fat, and the other one could fit inside the fat one. This formula would later be repeated in Twins, but only the bottom half of Arnold Schwarzenegger could fit inside Danny DeVito. Curiously, thatís just the way both like it. I donít know what the fuck Iím talking about, but Iíll bet you dollars to donuts that Sons of the Desert is 1) in black & white, unlike Twins and 2) unfunny, like Twins.


#96 (IFLS):
Brazil

Year: 1985

Directed by: Terry Gilliam

Written by: Terry Gilliam, Charles McKeown, Tom Stoppard

Starring: Robert DeNiro, Michael Palin, Jonathan Pryce

Seanbaby: I always thought George Orwell's 1984 needed a bunch of Monty Python shit. Thanks, Brazil.

Kthor: Time Bandits is funnier, because it has midgets. Twelve Monkeys is funnier, because it has monkeys. Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas is funnier, because it has people getting fucked up. The Fisher King isÖ not funnier, thankfully. Yes, Terry Gilliam, modern society is all crazy! Letís have a dream sequence! Fag. A couple good sight gags do not a #96 movie make. Sorry, kids.
