Comedy is one of those things that’s really subjective, and I think it’s also something that might be region specific most of the time. It’s hard to find stuff that actually makes you laugh out loud, and I’ve found that most of the movies that amuse me are ones I watched when I was a kid. I don’t know if the art of the comedy is being lost or if it’s just me. I do think comedy on TV is much easier, and wonder if in part it’s hard to make a 90 minute continual funny movie.
Anyways, my top movies. Would be interested in seeing everyone elses.
Coming to America
Kung Fu Hustle
40 year old virgin
Dirty Rotten Scoundrels
Meaning of Life
Damn, I can’t even list 10. I think making a true comedy movie is really really difficult, or else the genre just isn’t suited for it.
