Two nights, two updates and this one is an absolute corker. Friday Night Dinner, the comedy series starring Tamsin Greig, Simon Bird, Paul Ritter, Tom Rosenthal, Mark Heap, and Tracy-Ann Oberman ran for six seasons from 2011 to 2020 and the first season has already yielded twenty-seven clips which'll make you pee your pants laughing.
We'll dive into season two in the coming days but for now, why not join this lovely but vaguely dysfunctional Jewish family for their sabbath dinner?! Oh, and be sure to meet Jim whilst you're there.
See you next week for another generous helping of the Goodmans.
We promised you Police Academy 4: Citizens on Patrol and we've gone and added it to the database. Eight clips which, as with the other films in this franchise, doesn't reflect how good it is. It's just that a lot of the humour doesn't work without the visuals. These eight clips are the bits that do!
So, where shall we go next? Friday Night Dinner? Obliterated? Reacher? Cockneys vs Zombies? They're all on our list, so check back soon to see what we've opted for.
In the meantime, as usual... take care out there.
Who would have thought that the 1999 Jonny Lee Miller / Robert Carlyle comedy Plunkett & Macleane would have yielded FIFTEEN clips for our database? But then, this is no ordinary period drama. Set in eighteenth century London, Plunkett and Macleane join forces to rob the aristocracy and become renowned as "The Gentlemen Highwaymen."
Not only is this movie very, very funny but it also has a banging soundtrack. We really enjoyed this particular trip down memory lane and if you've never indulged, give it a watch. We promise you won't regret it.
We'll be back next week with Police Academy 4. As promised. We promise!
Tonight, two weeks after our last update (sorry about that), we proudly present six clips from Police Academy 3: Back in Training. Don't let the small number of clips put you off. This is a classic comedy but, once again, it's largely visual. There are only a handful of clips that work without the accompanying video.
We're going to watch the 4th instalment which, to be honest, is probably as far as we're going to take this series. Like all good movie franchises, sometimes the studios go too far in their pursuit of takings. So check back soon to catch up with Mahoney and the gang for what will probably be the final time.
Meanwhile, take care out there, won't you?
We finally got around to adding Police Academy 2: Their First Assignment as we promised back on the 16th January. It's yielded seven clips which is in no way indicative of the quality of this classic comedy. It just so happens that most of the hilarity is visual.
We've been tweaking the site's code for a couple of days, making some minor adjustments here and there. Nothing to write home about, but until we get time to design a new version, small tweaks will just have to do. If you notice anything awry, please let us know as we haven't been able to fully test drive the code yet.
We'll be back as soon as we can with another instalment of Police Academy. Until then, take care and keep smiling.
It's been a while but, in my defence, it's been chaos. And rather than go with the Police Academy sequel we had planned, we've once again gone "off-piste" and opted for the 2024 TV Series of Ted. Peacock took the cuddly Seth MacFarlane creation (who is due to make a return to the big screen later in the year) and created a TV mini-series which was as funny and technically brilliant as its Hollywood counterparts. And we loved every episode of it.
We'll try to return next week with another update. Probably another of the Police Academy movies but right now, all bets are off! Just enjoy the thirty-five clips from this slice of comedy gold until we work out where we're going next.
We promised you Police Academy and today, we've given you Police Academy. Well, ten clips from it to be precise. Starring Steve Guttenberg (who also starred in our all-time favourite Three Men and a Little Lady), Kim Cattrall, Michael Winslow, G.W. Bailey, Bubba Smith, and George Gaynes, this 1984 slapstick masterpiece follows a group of unlikely recruits on their journey through the Metropolitan Police Academy. Who can forget Kyle Blankes and Chad Copeland walking into the Blue Oyster Bar or Commandant Lassard struggling to give a speech whilst being unexpectedly pleasured by a concealed prostitute?!
We'll be back later in the week (possibly tomorrow) with the sequel but in the mean-time, take care and stay safe and warm out there.
It's nearly the end of the week and being that I'm away for the weekend, I thought I'd get in early with an update. And what an update it is. One of my favourite comedies of all time... National Lampoon's Senior Trip. I first watched this movie as a child and wasn't sure what to expect but it's still hilarious. Fifteen clips which I hope highlight just how funny it is.
We have the entire set of Police Academy movies to do next. Not sure how that's going to play out as most of the humour is visual but the site wouldn't be complete without at least some of Mahoney's mirth and Jones's japery so we'll persevere and see what we can do in the next week or so.
Stay warm, stay safe and stay happy. And that's an order, people!
And here we are! 18 days since our last update and the first one of 2024 sees the addition of thirteen clips from Family Guy (episodes six through nine of season twenty-two), which brings us bang up-to-date with the Griffins.
We have a fair number of titles earmarked for January including all of the Police Academy movies and National Lampoon's Senior Trip, but these beauties should keep you chuckling until then. Right now I'm juggling a new job, family life, and degree studies so updates may be somewhat lethargic but whenever I get a spare moment, I'll be continuing work on cramming our already groaning database chock full of the funniest audio possible.
See you all real soon with some more rib-ticklers.
This is it, folks. The final update of 2023 and it's a Christmas corker! Fourteen clips from the 1988 Bill Murray comedy Scrooged. The past three weeks have been full-on. We've added a huge number of clips and a fair number of new titles to the Film Funnies line-up and we think we've earned ourselves a rest.
Thank you to every last one of you for visiting the site, for getting in touch, for visiting our sponsors and for making donations. Without you, this site simply wouldn't exist. So have yourselves a merry little Christmas and an amazing new year. We love you all.
