A very partial list of good comedies since 2000: American Pie 2, the Cornetto Trilogy, The Hangover, Superbad, Wedding Crashers, the first Meet the Parents, 40 year old virgin, Dodgeball, Talladega Nights, Horrible Bosses, Zombieland, Tropic Thunder, Forgetting Sarah Marshall, Get Him to the Greek, Idiocracy...

And you've got "The Other Guys" in your top 3? I mean, it's not a bad movie, but cumong man.

It makes me sad not to see I Love You, Man on any of these post millennial lists. Honestly cracks me up every single time I see it (which is more than just a few).

Also, if we're talking about movies on the Horrible Bosses/Tropic Thunder level, I wish Walk Hard would get at least a little bit of love. Not a top tier comedy but has a ton of easy laughs and is pretty damn funny overall.

I didn't love Horrible Bosses, but it certainly wasn't bad.  And I don't know if Tropic Thunder is that great if you take out Robert Downey and Tom Cruise...but they're in there, and they're hilarious. 

In addition to mentioning Knocked Up I'm mainly chiming in to praise Forgetting Sarah Marshall. I have an unnatural love for that movie. I actually thought about posting this after the Penn State game.

I'm going to see The Counselor Friday.  That's one of a few good looking movies I'd like to see in the theater in the past few years (probably longer than a few).

Will Ferrell is best when he's not the main character.  Anchorman is, ok and funny at times, but not great.  Old School, on the other hand, is very, very good.  Great dynamic between all the actors and as I mentioned, Ferrell is not the lead but at most ONE of the leads but still gets plenty of screen time/writing done for him.

Frankly, Will Ferrell is unimpressive in any starring role except for Talladega Nights (which actually deserves the praise that Anchorman gets).  He's best as an unhinged side character.  I was unimpressed by the smoking crack (spoiler!) in the trailer... hopefully the gags will be better on average in the actual movie.

I don't know if anyone has seen this trailer, but I just saw the trailer for Robocop remake. That shit looks awful. How can they remake Robocop, that movie was freaking great scifi satire, and making it pg13 is another slap in the face. Who is with me?

Seriously I feel sorry for you people. Step Brothers is movie gold. Anchorman, Talladega Nights and The Other Guys are hilarious. Then toss in Kicking and Screaming and you have quite a night of hilarity.
