Meine zehn liebsten Komödien

„If you want to make God laugh tell him about your plans.“

 

 

 

Komödien und ich, das ist eine etwas zweischneidige Angelegenheit. Die wenigsten von ihnen finde ich wirklich lustig, was vermutlich an mir und meiner Vorstellung von Humor liegt. Noch weniger von ihnen finde ich so lustig, dass ich sie mehr als einmal oder gar immer wieder schauen und immer noch darüber lachen kann. Auch lache ich bei Komödien relativ selten und beinahe nie wirklich laut und ungehemmt, sondern schmunzel mehr so in mich hinein, wenn ich einen Gag für gelungen halte. Nicht, weil ich nicht gern lachen würde, ganz im Gegenteil, ich lache gern und viel, aber ich mag nicht auf Kommando lachen müssen. Weil der Film es mir diktiert. Ich lache auch nicht selten über Dinge, über die sonst kaum jemand anderes lacht oder lachen kann. Insofern hat es mir diese Liste heute nicht besonders leicht gemacht, aber ich kann guten Gewissens behaupten, dass ich die folgenden zehn Filme aus den unterschiedlichsten Gründen wirklich lustig und unterhaltsam finde und vor allem auch immer wieder über sie lachen kann ohne das sie sich abnutzen würden. Viel Spaß also mit meinen zehn liebsten Komödien….
