Best Comedies of the 21st Century?




You're going to be seeing a lot of "Best of the 21st Century lists" coming up in August because the BBC will be unveiling the poll they conducted with hundreds of film critics worldwide. It will stir up debate no doubt, but here's my take on it, but genre by genre. I decided to start with comedy.

1) "Borat"
2) "The 40 Year Old Virgin"
3) "Anchorman"
4) "Superbad"
5) "Bad Santa"
6) "Old School"
7) "Bridesmaids"
8) "Wedding Crashers"
9) "Step Brothers"
10) "Shaun of the Dead"
11) "Pineapple Express"
12) "21 Jump Street"

Interesting decade for the genre. A lot of Will Ferell. He basically changed the game, brought a lot of meta to comedy. "Borat" was the king though, that was the most political a comedy could get. It was about us, every laugh had to come with a sting. We knew there was racial intolerance out there, but Sacha Baron Cohen lays it bare for our eyes and shows  how real the problem really was.
