I'm a really big fan of the "stupid" comedy's; Zoolander, Dodgeball, Starsky & Hutch, and Anchorman. Nobody can make me laugh more than Ben Stiller and Will Ferrell, except for maybe Vince Vaughn. Different tastes I guess.
You! People like YOU are ruining comedy these days!
OK maybe that's taking it too far but I don't see how so many people like those movies. Will Ferrell and Vince Vaughn can be so funny without resorting to that crap. Ben Stiller, I'm convinced, is just a write-off.
Haha.....I'm sorry, but I can't help it if it makes me laugh. The biggest complaint I've heard with Anchorman type movies is that they have no plot..........that's sorta the point. If I wanted to watch a movie with plot, I'd rent a drama. When I rent a comedy I want to laugh, thats it. And how can you call Ben Stiller a write-off? "Meet the Parents" is the only movie I've ever cried at, and it wasn't b/c it was sad. If I may ask, what new comedy's do you like? What comedian actors/actresses?
Going through my collection of comedies... Old School, Me Myself & Irene, Van Wilder, American Pie, Half Baked, Office Space, and Scary Movie II. And I liked Napoleon Dynamite. It's just the mindless, "I'll do something really stupid that required no thought process" comedy I don't like. That's not funny. Will Ferrell has been very funny. But he's gone down the tubes.
As for The Holy Grail, I watched it last night... it was pretty good. Not one of my favourites but better than most of the stuff that's come out recently
