…Make ‘Em Laugh
The research conducted by a film subscription, the study used a laughs-a-minute scale to judge the humor levels of each of the films shown.
The victor came out with a score of 3 laughs a minute.
Other films coming in the top 10 include “The Hangover”(2.4), “Anchorman”(1.6), and “Bridesmaids”(1.4).
You’ll notice quite a few movies missing from the list, not to mention the absence of any sort of scientific method to how this study was conducted.
Were age and gender taken into account when choosing participants? How was a laugh defined? Was the duration of each laugh taken into account? Or did a chortle count the same as a minute long belly laugh?
Or more importantly, where are “Caddyshack”, “Office Space” and “Young Frankenstein”?
This study may be less than scientific, but I demand a recount.
