Took a break from my big project and got into a discussion with Mike from A Video Store Named Desire and his crowd of followers on Facebook. Here’s a slightly modified version of it. Check out My Facebook Page to find Mike and join the discussion!
The question posed: “Can you name ten movies of the last decade funnier than Anchorman?”
My answer: In brief, yes.
First, I’ve never seen so many people laugh as when I saw Borat on opening night. I think people forget about that phenomenon.
Yet comedy is one of the most subjective genres out there. I remember reading a review of Ace Ventury: Pet Detective in Entertainment Weekly when it first came out. They gave the movie an F.
That seems a little harsh.
So, I’m sure we’ll disagree, but to me, there are many, many movies funnier than Anchorman released from 2001-2010. Here are ten, in no particular order:
Team America: World Police
In the Loop
And of course, Bad Boys II… (just kidding)
More? What about Idiocracy? Yep.
Mean Girls? Indeed.
The TV Set? Uh-huh.
Never heard of The TV Set? It’s funny, trust me.
Or check it out for yourself…because we just might disagree.
