Two more under-noted comedies:

"Water" - Set to the backdrop of the Carribean islands with a fine reggae score. Billy Connolly and Michael Caine star, reggae legend Eddy Grant provides the soundtrack. Outrageously funny.

"Whisky Galore" (a.k.a. "Tight Little Island" which is the U.S. title) - One of the funniest movies ever made. Inhabitants of Outer Hebrides attempt to salvage cargo of booze to backdrop of wartime rationing, Sabbath observance, etc.

Amazon has Water on VHS; Whisky is not, as far as I know, available currently in the U.S. (alas!).
JennyO: if you haven't yet seen the print version of Circus of Dr. Lao, will Boris Artzybasheff's drawings, you're in for a treat.
