We asked Marlon Wayans, whose film credits include "Scary Movie," "Don't be a Menace to South Central While Drinking Your Juice in the Hood," "White Chicks" and "A Haunted House," to name his five favorite comedies not starring himself:

"Groundhog Day" (1993): "Just a brilliant script. A really classic funny movie."


"Liar Liar" (1997): Every time Jim Carrey performs in that movie, it's unbelievable. It went from 1 to 100 and hit everywhere, and every note in between."

"The Nutty Professor" (1996): "Eddie Murphy, seeing him sitting at a table, doing six different characters, was absolutely genius and brilliant. He should have won an Academy Award for that one."


"Coming to America" (1988): "I don't love the movie as much as I just love what [Eddie Murphy] did in the movie, just from a performance perspective. I'm a huge Eddie Murphy fan. I thought he was brilliant in that movie."

"Airplane" (1980): "One of my favorite movies, comedically. A great parody."

And one more, because he asked nicely:

"There's Something About Mary" (1998): "Please put that in there."
