I feel the motion picture industry has trouble awarding comedies with any kind of accolade due, in large part, to the lack of storytelling, character development, and the sometimes off-the-wall, nuts-o, crazy-town plot. But should that really matter? Comedy is not a science, it's an art. Therefore there are no rules and it can be very subjective. What one person finds hilarious the other might not. And when it comes down to it, comedies are a little like porn, if it does the job who cares if it's any "good." With that said, feel free to giggle along with my picks for the Top Ten Best Comedies "Of All Time."
