This weekend the comedy omnibus "Movie 43" opens, bringing along the kaleidoscopic irreverence of previous anthology comedies -- movies made up of a myriad of sketches or conceptual frameworks with a singular goal in mind: to make you giggle. While we haven't seen the film yet (it's not being screened for critics), it does have an impressive cast that includes Kate Winslet, Hugh Jackman, Emma Stone, Gerard Butler, Johnny Knoxville, Terrence Howard, Halle Berry and Anna Faris, along with some heavyweights behind the camera, too, including Griffin Dunne, Peter Farrelly, James Gunn and Brett Ratner. This is the lure of the anthology movie: you only have to film for a couple of days and are only in the movie for a few minutes.

"Movie 43" got us thinking about some of our favorite anthology films. From horror to comedies to cartoons, read on for a collection of collections, and let us know if your favorite made the cut!
