Well there you go , that's my #5.

As it was listed as my favorite war movie, it has to be on the list.. The comedy is all over that movie. Talk about a d'oh moment.

Mister Roberts


MASH




No Time For Sergeants
Kelly's Heroes

(And the spacing is intentional.  Those two movies, IMO, are head and shoulders above the rest by a wide margin.)

Totally forgot 1941.

I know it bombed, but I find it to be a
lot of fun.

That would be my fifth.
