Knocked Up: 92% on RottenTomatoes. One of the highest-rated comedies I've ever seen on there.
I think we're entering a new era of comedy thanks to Judd Apatow. Not only is he genius, he's original. Perhaps this means we don't have to endure trailers for movies by the Wayans brothers, like "Little White Chicks Man" or something equally atrocious. Hopefully "Delta Farce" has proven that Blue Collar comedy fans aren't willing to pay to laugh at farts and gay bashing. And whoever mentioned Epic Movie; not only was that unanimously chosen as pretty much the worst movie made in the past several years for national consumption (2%). Good satire died when Mel Brooks decided to start focusing on musicals again. Epic Movie makes Men in Tights look like Casablanca.
Even the "Frat Pack" movies are beginning to lose their luster (hits like "Wedding Crashers" are remembered ahead of misses like "Starsky & Hutch"), although Paul Rudd may be the funniest actor you never heard of in all of those movies.
I'm looking forward to it.
