PS: The IMDb Poll Board User's Beloved Little Comedy Movies

Intro:

This time the IMDb poll board users present their most beloved little comedies. We all know the big comedies, which were pretty successful like Life of Brian (1979), The Big Lebowski (1998), or The Grand Budapest Hotel (2014). But there a few comedies didn't reach such a wide audience. Which of these comedies rated by 50.000 or less users with a rating above 6/10 is your favorite? If you haven't seen one of them, vote for the one you're most interested in. Discuss here.

Rules:

The idea is to collect as many really funny movies that are not so widely known to present them as an alternate to the total mainstream movies, the kings. They can be nasty or rude, no matter.
Only comedy movies, rated 6.5/10 or higher with less than 50.000 ratings. One movie per user - if there are not so many contributers, this rule can be enhanced. They might be comedies you can watch over and over again and still laugh.

Big thank you, Dan. :D
Did you check the rules? I made up the rule one per user. Maybe later enhanced, if not enough users are interested in. So which of these movies you mentioned would you pick as your number one? I f I have to enhance the rule, you might define a special order.

In that case:

What's Up, Doc? (1972)
7.7/10 18,558

The scene with the plate glass is classic.

I have an additional idea to my basic idea. The rules count, but I add another rule.
Dan is the most respected guy on this board, according to the extra work he does for all.
So I count Dan as a special user for the work he did for all. For each user, who joins the idea
with his contribution, I'll put one more of Dan's options to the list. :D Come on, guys. :)
contributions treated in order of appearance. :D

Breumaster,

I misread the criteria. I would rather this poll be representative of members of this board.

My choice only has a 4.7 rating, but it's hilarious.

Dorm Daze (2003)

Thank you, Bane (LXXXII).
But I won't put it on the list. There's a point, why I sat the rule to "6.5/10 or higher". The comedy you mention might be good. I know a few myself, which are rated lower than I would ... or had. But with the rule of 6.5/10 or higher I try to keep the quality. If I'd set the rule to 4.5/10, too many people would come with totally no-go-comedies, which are not funny.  And I would have to take them to the lst by rule. So - no. Sorry. But maybe you got some little comedy, which matches better?

I don't watch much comedy, so no, I don't have another choice that meets your criteria.

I'll vote for Dan Dassow's choice when the poll goes live - Dorm Daze has a similar premise to the title he suggested; it includes 2 identical bags, 2 women with the same name, and 3 notes getting mixed up.

50k seems a bit high for the vote ceiling. And if you're changing the ratings floor to 6.5, you should also change it accordingly in the text.

I changed it afterwards, but forget to change it in the intro. Thank you, Stephen.

Thank you, but with 1.1 million ratings, the wolf doesn't match the criteria.
Maybe you have another suggestion. I fit fits the criteria, I'd put it to the list.
