    I never considered them slap stick - I though they were too 'dry' for that, which, to me, is MUCH better comedy! Just like I prefer Marx Brothers to Three Stooges. :-)

    I don't know what other category you'd put it in though.

    I consider slap stick more of the phsycial comedy like the stooges,
    but the dry delivery of Airplane, Top Secret, etc. - and other movies
    of that type, like Robin Hood Men in Tights or Hot Shots - some slap
    stick moments, but mostly 'thinking' humor. :-)

    Both Stooges
    and Marx Bros were great! I read a very great blog years ago from a guy who wrote a fan letter to Moe Howard when he was in school and he told

    WOW! Now that's a great story! :-)

    Did you watch Police Squad! ? Not the Naked Gun movies, but the 6
    episode single season show?

    Of course! I was very surprised that it only lasted 6 episodes!

    I wasn't surprised at all... I remember at the time that 'the
    official reviewers' talked about how stupid it was and not
    'traditional comedy' etc.

    "Slap" stick gets its name from the physicallity of the humor.

    It was fun to read. He even posted scans of hand written letters he received from Moe.

    If anything it was well ahead of it's time.

    I like a good comedy, but I haven't seen many, or any, in recent years that I've liked. The Zucker, Abrahams and Zucker movies were among my favourite. Other than that, I like science fiction, or Action/Science Fiction, like Aliens, Event Horizon, Demolition Man.

    Sly Stallone was great in Demolition Man.
