    I don't know if Bridesmades was even funnier than Horrible Bosses...

    And once again, I have been snubbed by the academy.

    I do. Bridesmaids had me crying. Horrible Bosses just had me laughing.

    Wow.

    Not quite there with Dumb and Dumber, but it is in my top 10 comedies without a doubt.

    From what little I've seen so far 2011 wasn't any worse a year than any of the last dozen or more. I would say that mainstream Hollywood continues it's long slow decline, so if that's all I was interested in I'd probably agree - though even there I saw two masterpieces (albeit from older filmmakers who aren't interested in making superhero movies). But the last year seems to have been a great one for Iran and South Korea just as the last couple of decades have been for those two countries, and there is plenty of interesting stuff from France, Canada, the UK, China/Hong Kong, Turkey and other places that I'll be trying to get to. And some interesting lower-budget American stuff like Take Shelter and Martha Marcy May Marlene.

    As usual, only bad if you limit yourself.
    Choo got it, dude.

    I take it this means your favorite comedy is The Big Lebowski?

    I echo everything said about Drive and 50/50 in this thread. Drive was the best movie I saw this year and I don't think it was close. With that said, I have yet to see The Descendents or Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close, though I plan on doing so soon.
    I would slot Bridesmaids behinds The Hangover, Wedding Crashers, Old School, and American Pie. In regards to Dumb and Dumber I can't remember but was it received by all audiences like most of the critically aclaimed comedies? No doubt its funny, but most comedies that play well with the academy cover a broad demographic range.

    Dumb and Dumber wasn't even the funniest Farrelly Brothers movie.

    Airplane, Top Secret, This is Spinal Tap -- those are funny movies.

    It was funny but best ever?

    I can think about 2-3 Marx Brothers movies that are funnier without having to use the toilet. Something About Mary was just as funny.

    What Rojo said as well... Airplane! alone is the best ever.

    I've never cared for Dumb & Dumber, or for that matter, 90% of Jim Carey's movies.

    I'm begining to think the same thing regarding Will Ferrell. Loved Old School and wedding crashers, but the more he's stepped into the lead, the less funny I've found him to be. Didn't care for Ron Burgandy, Step Brothers was unwatchable.

    For Comedy, give me Airplane, the first 2/3rds of Blazzing Saddles, animal house, Back to School, American Pie (or American Wedding), Tommy Boy, Trading Places (or anything early Eddie Murphy), Stipes, Vaction, Super Bad or Caddy Shack.

    I'll also throw in 1 comedy I never heard much buzz about, but had me laughing as hard as I can remember. "Role Models"

    My dad got to enjoy 3 Reds World Championships by the time he was my age. So far, I've only gotten to enjoy one. Step it up Redlegs!
