If you are a fan of comedy, then you understand why the 3 Stooges were one of the greats. But it looks like Leslie Nielsen has a seat at the table of the greats, not once, but twice. A website called LoveFilm.com has determined that "Airplane!" is the "Funniest Film Ever", because of the laughs per minute the votes had while watching the movie.

What is funny, my friends and I used to just whether a movie was worth seeing based on the number of laughs you got throughout the whole movie. Now we have someone who had a lot of time on his/their hands to actually count how many laughs per minute...wow.

Also interest to note, most of the movies in the Top 10 have been within the last 20 years.

 

 

The Top 10 (with laughs per minute that got them their ranking)
#1.) "Airplane!", 3 laughs per minute.

#4.) "Superbad", 1.9 laughs per minute.
