Top ten comedies

Top ten comedies

10. “Not Another Teen Movie”

“Not Another Teen Movie,” Directed by Joel Gallen, is in the number ten spot because of its spoofing of other classic teen movies like “Bring It On,” “The Breakfast Club,” “She’s All That,” “10 things I Hate About You,” “Pretty in Pink,” and many more. There’s something about the blunt and obscure jokes that make it funny. 

9.”White Chicks” 

“White Chicks,” Directed by Keenen Ivory Wayans, is in 9th place for its unique and hilarious costumes, but also because of its iconic scenes where the “sisters” have a roast battle and a dance battle. I can tell you that every time the song “ It’s Tricky” by Run-D.M.C comes on, I think about this movie.   

8. “21 Jump Street”

“21 Jump Street,” Directed by Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, is the perfect movie about undercover cops. This is in the 8th spot because of the chemistry between the characters Jenko (Channing Tatum) and Schmidt (Jonah Hill). What makes this movie so memorable is the fight scenes and dialogue the characters use.

7. “10 things I Hate About You”

“10 Things I Hate About You,” directed by Gil Junger, is definitely different from other movies on this list. The actors really brought their characters’ humor to life through this movie and that’s one of the reasons why I think it’s so popular to this day. All of the jokes are still funny and up-to-date.

6. “Peacemaker”

“Peacemaker,” Directed by James Gunn, is a spin off from “The Suicide Squad.” I think that this show was the first creation from the DC Universe that actually genuinely made me laugh. It’s such a different tone from others] projects that DC has put out. In my opinion “Peacemaker” has the best intro to a show ever created.

5. “Step Brothers”

“Step Brothers,” directed by Adam McKay, in 5th place is by far one of the most popular comedies by far. Rightfully so, though, because this is one of the most quotable movies made. Putting two of the best comedians together Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly was a really smart choice in getting people to laugh.

4. “Land of the Lost”

“Land of the Lost,” directed by Brad Silberling, does not get enough credit for its humor and unique storyline. I think that Will Ferrell has mastered the art of being effortlessly funny and he should keep making movies like this.   

3. “Scott Pilgrim vs. the World”

“Scott Pilgrim vs. the World,” directed by Edgar Wright, is a cinematic masterpiece with jokes that I still laugh at every time. I find myself and my family constantly quoting this movie and singing the songs. If you haven’t seen it I highly recommend it.

2. “Deadpool 2”

“Deadpool 2,” directed by David Leitch, is better and funnier than the first. I know what I said is probably controversial to some but I think everything was done to perfection. I like how Deadpool never fails to mention other characters in the universe, too. 

1. “Hot Rod” 

“Hot Rod,” directed by Akiva Schaffer, is taking 1st place on this list because I think this movie is timeless with countless funny references. Something about this movie that feels special is that the time period looks kind of like the 80s, 2000s, and current day all at the same time. I would recommend this move to anyone who wants a good laugh.
