It seems like a lot of comedies released these days just aren't as funny as stuff from the '80s and '90s. They all follow the same formula and are usually either gross out humor or cheesy romantic comedies. Question Who's Online | Find Members | Private Messages

Do you think comedic movies have gone downhill over the past decade or so?

I would say yes. Movies like Napolean Dynamite or Anchorman can't compare to Fast Times at Ridgemont High or Ferris Bueller's Day Off.

I don't think so. There have always been bad movies, but we're more likely to remember the good ones now.... We look back fondly because we don't remember a lot of the total sh*t that was out back then. And it's the same now... There's good and bad.

No. While there are horrible ones like Vin Diesel family comedies and Adam Sandler movies, there are also the Judd Apatow films, and the frat pack, with the exception of Will Ferrel.

thats a really hard one.
yes, movie have gotten much worse. some were great and all but movies like zohan and things like that, are awful, yes that are good for a few laughs, but honestly, you have to be in a good mood to laugh at some of the stuff in there, certainly because there are so many sex jokes
however as good as the last movies of the past decades were compared to movie of this decade alot of people simply didnt like them just because of the poor graphics and effects.
we only have a few good actors of this decades. including a couple that have died

I like a lot of the Apatow movies, but spoof movies have turned to absolute poo over the last 10 years. And I feel strongly enough about that to actually type the word poo, even though I know it's going to show up as poo.

yeah, seems like they will slap together any old crud and charge you $12 to see it.

Well, I think there's more crap these days, as such, but I like the good movies today almost as much as the old ones.

Also, let's not forget that there was terrible crap in the old days too.

Yes. I think comedy brings out the worst of society whereas tragedy brings out its best. But let's think, there are so many horrible examples of comedy. but I can't even think of any because I didn't bother to go see them. Maybe I'm uninformed in my opinions. *blush. but the previews that were forced on me looked terrible.

Superbad, The Hangover, American Pie Part 80...

I'm going to say yes. I hate all these movies.
