Interesting.  I like em all, but for me it’s the Stooges.  The shorts that is, the movies after Curly and Shemp died were rather tedious.  Btw... Shemp was the greatest Stooge no matter what anyone says!!!

 

Did you guys see the Stan and Ollie movie?  Thoughts?

I did not see it

It’s quite good.  Pretty sad story, based around the time their popularity dropped and they had to play to small crowds during ill health etc.

Out of those choices, Abbott & Costello would be my favorite but I don't think of them as slapstick

This black and white stuff give me the creeps. Same for those old Walt Disney movies. I feel really uncomfortable... but I'm sure there's some good stuff in there.

 

Do Naked Gun, Hot Shots and similar movies (from the 80s and 90s) count as slapstick? Those are my favorites.

The naked gun is godly

I love the Police Squad show they had before the movies. Amazing, really. It demands you to pay attention to it and it completely pays off. English is not my first language so it's good to rewatch it, there's always something new I can pick up.

 

I just created this super nostalgic HD with Police Squad, Seinfeld, early Simpsons and da Ali G show (kinda hit or miss but Borat is genius). I am a sucker for 80s/90s comedy.
