Den of Geek's Best Movie Comedies of the Last 15 Years
There is likely no genre of film or performance more subjective than comedy. You either laugh or you don't. To explain why something is funny will more often than not rob a joke of its power, and to attempt to classify one type of humor over another could be a fool's errand.
Which must mean we're feeling pretty foolish here at Den of Geek, because in honor of our company's 15th year, we decided to rank and list all the best laughers from the last decade and a half. Now admittedly, what qualifies as a "comedy"—versus, say, a drama with humorous moments—can be as subjective as humor itself. Yet given the wealth of material to work with, even from the last few years when comedies have sadly been mostly abandoned by Hollywood studios, we decided to let our staff and you, dear readers, choose what you think is funny.
Below is a list of 25 entertainments, satires, and gross-out gags that tickled thousands of readers' funny bones, as well those of our discerning staff writers and editor.
