Here are the top ten articles for the Comedy Movies Site! These rankings are live and get reset at the beginning of each month, so check back often to see what your fellow visitors are most interested in!

1. Night at the Museum Secret of the Tomb Review
The latest film in the Night at the Museum series comes to a sincere and incredibly bittersweet end, with a sense of laurel-passing, while maintaining the campy humor found in the other two movies.

2. The Lego Movie Review
Itís got all the hallmarks to be a bad film: Licensed product, targeting a childrenís demographic, blatant pop culture references, and using nostalgia to get a cheap laugh. But why is it not terrible? Why is it good? And why did it get snubbed by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences?

3. The Blues Brothers Movie Review
From my other reviews it should be obvious: I have a deep, deep love of late-seventies-early-eighties comedies brought about by the perfect storm of the likes of John Landis and assorted Saturday Night Live inaugural cast like John Belushi and Dan Aykroyd. Hereís the one with the best soundtrack.

4. Home Alone Movie Review
A movie that introduced John Hughes to the 1990s and its children, directed by a guy who would make his name known to a generation of children in the 2000s by directing the Harry Potter films, who also wrote The Goonies. But does the film encourage violence against hobos? Maybe.

5. Oscar Movie Review
I didnít know this was a John Landis movie, I promise. I just have a habit, I guess. This quick little piece of business isÖ frenetic to say the least. But I guess thatís what happens when you make a corny movie about the day a gangster goes straight

6. The Muppet Christmas Carol Movie Review
How do you take a classic Christmas tale that has some really screwed up imagery which we keep telling to our children and make it overly kid-friendly? You add the greatest comedy troupe in the world. Not the Monty Python. Not Broken Lizard. You add in Jim Hensonís Muppets. And they slay it.

7. Slapstick Comedy - A second-by-second breakdown
If ballet dancing is the most elegant form of physical expression, then slapstick comedy has been given an ill-fitting reputation as its beer-swilling knucklehead cousin no everyone turns their nose up at. Here's why you shouldn't.

8. How the Grinch Stole Christmas Movie Review
This was a perfectly serviceable live-action tribute to the works of beloved childrenís author Dr. Seuss that started an idea. A terrible, awful idea: copy-and-paste, pop-culture laden ransackings of childhood memories. But we can at least sit here and enjoy its sire, which is actually entertaining.

9. Trading Places Movie Review
Where John Hughes was the master of the PG-13 comedy in the 80s, John Landis owned the R-rated comedy category back then. This classic starring Eddie Murphy and Dan Aykroyd amidst the high-stakes world of commodities training is a hilarious and surprisingly well-researched dive into the other side.

10. Shaun of the Dead Movie Review
What would a modern-day zombie apocalypse look like from the average Joeís perspective? Turns out, itís a bit less heroic and a bit more practical than other movies would have you think. This new Giggleween classic is a relentless blend of humor and gore, and is worth seeing at least twice.
