/u/StopReadinMyUsername on reddit combined the average ratings (Critic's & Users) from IMDb, Rotten Tomatoes, Metacritic and Letterboxd, and then weighted and tweaked the results with general film data from iCheckMovies and IMDb to reveal the 1001 Greatest Movies of All Time.
The best-reviewed lists we normally publish involve thousands of movies sorted by Adjusted Tomatometer to best distill the professional critics’ consensus, a soothing balm of agreement in the internet age.
This is not that kind of list.
This is 100 Essential Comedy Movies, funny flicks hand-picked by Rotten Tomatoes editors to best represent our tastes and, hey, probably yours, too. (We also did an Essential 200 Movies.) The only caveat for our comedies list: Every movie needed to be 60% (Fresh) or higher. That’s it. You’re still here? It’s over! Go read.
This is a list of every movie that has made an appearance on the Top 250 list since the beginning of the site in 1996 through 2018. I will maintain a changelog below for when new movies are added to list.
