Top 5 Comedies of the 21st Century / Young Frankenstein

Earlier this year, the BBC polled movie critics worldwide for the best films of the 21st century. The resulting list - the Top 100 of the new millennium - has been the subject of debate ever since. Noticeably under-represented from the list? Comedies. On this week's show, Adam and Josh try and remedy that oversight with their Top 5 Comedies of the 21st Century. Also, in honor of the late Gene Wilder, a sacred cow review of one of the 20th century’s great comedies: Mel Brooks’ YOUNG FRANKENSTEIN. Plus, Michael Phillips calls in from the Venice Film Festival with with some thoughts on the fest, on Wilder and on the BBC Top 100.
