Thank Harold Ramis, who died on Monday at the age of 69 due to complications from autoimmune inflammatory vasculitis, for the modern comedy landscape. As GQ noted in a piece on Ramis written by Brett Martin in 2009, without Ramis, "there'd be no Judd Apatow, Seth Rogen, or Will Ferrell. Without movies like 'Animal House,' 'Caddyshack,' 'Groundhog Day,' and 'Ghostbusters,' millions of line-memorizing men would be deprived of their more cherished dick jokes." Ahead, 10 of Ramis' most significant, funny and altogether perfect comedies.
