The Broad Humor Film Festival is coming! The Broad Humor Film Festival is coming! That's right, this weekend in Venice, CA, the broads will be getting together to celebrate funny women and their funny films (the dudes are welcome, too!). In honor of the upcoming festivities, I put together a list of four women-directed classic comedies, plus one new comedy. I sure wish more of these were available for streaming, but it's a start. Party on and queue this, Garths!

Wayne's World (dir Penelope Spheeris, 1992 DVD) "In this 'Saturday Night Live' spinoff, goofy rockers Wayne and Garth host a no-budget cable access show that attracts the attention of a big television producer. They think they're on the road to fame and fortune, but they may have fallen for a scam." I might have quoted far too many lines from this movie back in the day. Repeatedly. Cha!
