that other Wes Anderson movie that wasnt even that funny
Welcome to the Dollhouse

History of the World Part 1
Spaceballs
South Park
Orgazmo
Being There (everyone needs to see this if they havent)
Naked Gun 1, 2.5 and even 33.33333333
Best In Show
Major League
Troll 2
Fargo
Big Lebowski
pretty much any Cohen Bros Comedy
Holy Grail
American Pie
Johnny Dangerously

that's all i can think of and i know i missed quite a few


Sarah Marshall and Tropic Thunder are great films and considerably better than any of the films on this list I've seen.

I've seen about half of these, and a lot of these films make no sense. Are we thinking of the same Fargo? That movie isn't even a comedy, it's a drama. History of the World Part 1 was a huge fail, personally I thought History of the World Part 2 was better. Oh wait, there was no part 2 because the first one sucked. They even had a sequel planned in the title but it was such a fail they never made a second. I haven't seen "Life Aquatic," but I think it's safe to say it since it sounds horrible, looks horrible (I googled it), and got horrible reviews it's not as funny Tropic Thunder.

The only movies on this list that even belong in the same sentence as Sarah Marshall are Zoolander, Anchorman, South Park, the Big Lebowski and Spaceballs.

I saw Adventureland.

The promos present it as a comedy; it isn't. They present it as some sort of follow-up to Superbad; it isn't. They are nothing alike. You will not laugh. The only remotely funny things are Bill Heder and Kristen Wiig (who have about 5 lines between them) and the kid from the Cingular rollover minutes commercials.

I can't possibly convey how horrible an actress Kristen Stewart is. If you've seen Twilight (you must really like your girlfriend/wife/child) this is not new news to you.

But she is an absolute abomination and should be banned from Hollywood for life.

I Love you, Man. B+/A-

I thought it was going to be lame but nope, it had me laughing more than any comedy I've seen since... I can't recall. I totally recommend it! ;-D

If you can get over the stupid title, you will thank yourself.

Wait... did someone just say Spirit wasn't that bad?????? Might have been the worst movie I've ever seen. To be fair, I didn't see the whole thing because I walked out of the theatre and demanded a refund after sitting through about 10 minutes of Sam Jackson in a Nazi uniform spouting non-sense that made me want to crumble up my poo and throw it at the screen.

i've never seen it and from the reviews in here i probably never will. what blows my mind is how people who are "professionals" in the movie industry allow movies that are so obviously terrible to even get made.

indeed, how is it possible that so many of those were made? and how is it possible that ANYONE spent money to go see them, you'd have to pay me a decent amount of money to sit through any of them.
