We also, by no coincidence, watched Airplane!, which was a good comedy. I really do have to wonder why so few comedies made these days capture the same level of magic. You occasionally see some gems here and there, but most of the movies that actually make me laugh are films that are purposed towards other things, with actual comedies just boring me. Yet with these older comedies, there's some sort of magic about them which makes them hilarious.
I dunno, maybe it's just me.
