Wacky movie that you remember

[ Edited ]

 Recently,  watched " Raising Arizona " movie from 1987 . I remember the 1st time , I watched this movie  . I thought it was  a wacky funny movie. I laughed  and laughed. My Husband and  I giggle  when we think of this movie. My favorite scene is when the Husband , Nicholas Cage   drops the pampers  and  has to go back to pick them up .

Caddyshack , Arthur and the Jerk still make me laugh.

@ThinkingCamille  That is definitely a wacky movie.

Any Marx Bros film esp Duck Soup.

But my favorite wacky movie of all time is The Grand Budapest Hotel. I thought within the first few moments that (1) it was going to be really wacky and (2) I was going to love it ( I do!)

Made before most of us were born, "Way Out West" and "Sons of the Desert." They were Laurel and Hardy films.
