After some Googling I found one movie that seems to be pretty much like you described it: Drop Dead Fred. "A young woman finds her already unstable life rocked by the presence of a rambunctious imaginary friend from childhood." The imaginary friend here is played by comedy actor Rik Mayall, wearing a green suit.
John 3:16 - "For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life." There was a guy who used to go to loads and loads of sporting events in the 70's, and he would hold up a sign with just "John 3:16" on it. He was trying to spread a message. Other people started seeing it on TV ...

I believe this to be the Hong Kong release called "Winners and Sinners", which is a comedy about some ex cons attempting to go straight, but getting caught up with a local crime boss anyway. I couldn't find any reference to a ring, but I did find this excerpt from the book "Dying for Action: The Life and Films of Jackie Chan", which states: Note: Some ...

It sounds like Addicted to Love, (1997): Maggie's and Sam's former partners are in love; she wants revenge and he wants his lost love back, so they work together to break up the happy couple.

Hall Pass, starring Owen Wilson. Synopsis: Rick and Fred, two husbands who are having difficulty in their marriages, are given a Hall Pass by their wives: for one week, they can do whatever they want.
I believe this is film called "What did you do in the war, daddy?". It was a war comedy directed by Blake Edwards (who directed Breakfast at Tiffany's along with the original Pink Panther films) and was released in 1966 through United Artists (which later was purchased my MGM, thus why it would be on the MGM channel). The entire film concerns Charlie ...
The movie you are thinking of is Big Daddy. Adam Sandler plays a layabout that ends up taking care of his roommates illegitimate child. The scene that you recall was during a poker game with some of his friends, and can be seen here. The link to the Wiki synopsis of the film is here.
I can think of American Pie Presents: The Naked Mile. From the Plot section : Erik's girlfriend of two years, Tracy, loves him, but is not ready for intercourse. Tracy sees this as an opportunity to give Erik a "guilt free weekend pass", hoping that he can quench his lust and get sex out of his system since she is not ready. Later that ...

What makes people laugh. There are surprisingly many theories about what makes us laugh! The most popular theories fall under the umbrella of “incongruity” and date back to Aristotle, who said that the best way to get a laugh was to set up an expectation and then deliver something “that gives a twist.” Theorists like Immanual Kant, Arthur Schopenhauer, and ...
I'd say Critical Condition. But it shouldn't be hard to find a movie if you know at least one actor using IMDB's search (Richard Pryor for example).
Is it Risky Business. Description looks similar and it also have Tom Cruise as lead (And he is obvious famous) and its came in 1983, very near to 90's. Borrowed from Paulster2's answer form this deleted question.
I don't think it is set in the Mediterranean, but I believe you might be thinking of the French comedy "Hibernatus", in which a man that is exploring the South Pole (Although a synopsis on IMDB says Greenland) ends up frozen in a block of ice, and found/thawed out 90 years later.
Wild guess, it might be National Lampoon's Disco Beaver from Outer Space, which was on HBO in 1978. The vignettes were supposedly someone switching channels between various shows. Sometimes the viewer would make audible comments, like "Quick! Change the channel before the commercial starts!"
