Edgar Wright’s 100 Favorite Comedies

Note from Edgar, March 2020:

“To get you through these tough times, please enjoy a generous helping of SOME of my favourite screen comedies that I’ve enjoyed over the years. I could easily do another 100 so don’t say ‘Where’s so and so?’. Just sit back and enjoy the movies. Let us know below, which ones raise a smile. (NB: No, I'm not so immodest to put my own on here. x)”
