Recently I came across this list on a blog I read: The Top 25 Comedies of the Past 25 Years List: Thoughts? I can see that if you dislike Judd Apatow, Todd Phillips, and/or their style of comedy, this list is really going to stick in your craw. It's certainly heavy on those guys. That said, I don't see why "I Love You, Man" wouldn't get in, as I thought it was on par with or better than other Apatow films. Rudd gave one of the better performances of his career there. I also found many movies on this list to be overrated. Road Trip was, in my opinion, fairly forgettable, predictable, and genre-typical. Not a bad comedy, but not one that I pine to see again. If it makes a top 25 list, it should just barely sneak in. Certainly not 15. Similarly, Pineapple Express left me kinda unenthused, and Superbad at 13 seems generous. Another question (which my roommate and I have heavily debated in the past) is whether Thank You For Smoking qualifies as a comedy. I say it certainly does, because if it's not a comedy, I don't know what other genre it falls into. And if I get to count it as a comedy, it's certainly top 10. In fact, I would say top 5 and vying for the top spot. If the original list-makers get to count Mean Girls as a comedy, I don't see why I can't count Thank You For Smoking. Similar borderline-comedies that I would certainly take over Meet The Parents (not horrible, but fairly middling) or Napoleon Dynamite (which I actively dislike): Little Miss Sunshine, Elf, Juno. I would sneak the movie Sex Drive towards the bottom of the list. The movie had fairly limited theatrical release, and I'm guessing most that saw it caught it on DVD or Netflix. It's entirely cliché, but in a sort of self-aware fashion that makes it tolerable. I think it rivaled Superbad, and possibly surpassed it as the best coming-of-age comedy of the decade. I could see this, however, being fairly divisive, as it doesn't exactly break new ground and I imagine many thought the movie was amateurish. It's a less-polished, but in my opinion significantly less predictable and funnier, version of American Pie. FOCUS: Missing on the list? Egregiously overrated? P.S. Can we not turn this into "YouKnowWho tells you why all your preferences and choices are idiotic, and there are at least 14 foreign movies that did that concept better"? Just a humble request.
