Good job everybody

You should change the title to:
"IMDB Ratings Are Worthless .. This Proves It"

Because you can not honestly, truly believe this is the number ONE comedy every filmed EVER .. of all time.

Just. Not. Possible.

imdb ratings are no about goodness, they're about popularity. Honestly I like this movie from my childhood, and yes this not the best comedy ever made, but I'd rather see this in the top comedies than something I personally hate

reply

Well it certainly isn't the #1 most popular comedy of all time either. Not even remotely close. Nothing personal, glad you enjoyed the film. IMDB ratings are worthless though.

reply

In a way, maybe. Its not like we must watch everything from bottom 100 movies to prove people they're wrong...

i never thought i'd see a man congratulate his botnet on something, but here we are.

his what?

I really do not understand you guys. This is by large the most (or top 3-5) popular film in former USSR. Do you really think that among 200+ million of people in Russia, Ukraine, etc. no one knows English and no one knows how to vote and you would need a bot to add popularity to this movie?
As regards "the best comedy", it depends on what you understand by it. If you like absurd or slapstick comedy, fun for fun's sake, than things like "Arsenic and Old Lace", "Bringing Up Baby" would be obviously better. If you prefer a romantic / slice-of-life thing, this one is really one of the best. Or you believe that it just cannot be good because it is not an English language film? That's ridiculous.

No, all this proves is how pretentious imdb users really are. Even their top-rated comedy has to be obscure and peculiar.
