Day 23: The Funniest Film You've Ever Seen
Day 23 of the 31 Day Film Challenge: The funniest film you've ever seen.
There are a lot of films that have made my laugh, many of which belong to my favourite comedy genre—the screwball comedy. Bringing Up Baby, Easy Living, Midnight, My Man Godrey, The Awful Truth, they are all so good and so funny that it's hard to pick just one but I'll go with Howard Hawks' My Girl Friday (1940). Hilarious and witty, with banter the likes of which you rarely hear and a great pairing of Cary Grant (king of the screwball comedy) and Rosiland Russell (who holds her own), it's one of the funniest films I've ever seen.
