I hope you're mixing it up with another movie, because I don't think there is anything funny about the holocaust.

Good list until The 40 Year Old Virgin... That was a good movie. But sort of strange that you list all of those classic movies and then that one in your top 10. There are so many classic comedies that are better than that, IMO. There are lots of hilarious and classic Mel Brooks, Woody Allen, John Hughes movies that I laughed at a lot more than that one.

Maybe it is just me but I really just couldn't get into that movie. But then again I can't stand 99% of the "comedies" they release nowadays. But I can watch classic John Candy, Steve Martin, Chevy Chase and other movies over and over again and laugh my ass off. I love comedies like Planes, Trains and Automobiles, Vacation, Uncle Buck, The Blues Brothers, etc.

The last few recent comedies (that have come out in the last 5 years or so) that I can say I laughed through out almost the whole thing are Old School, Idiocracy, Dodgeball, You, Me and Dupree.

Candy was great. Cool Runnings and Canadian Bacon were his two best movies IMO.
