Film School Rejects's the 50 Best Comedy Movies of the Decade
"Comedy is in the eye of the beholder. Trying to put together a definitive ranking of the decade in film comedy is kind of like trying to drain a lake with a thimble or any of those other impossible tasks they used to use to test suspected witches back in the day. That said, we here at FSR like to think we're a well-watched bunch with a wide range of tastes, so we decided to take our best stab at the impossible anyway.
Note that this list is entitled "Best Comedies of the Decade" and not "Funniest Comedies of the Decade"—while eliciting quality laughs is a major part of being a great comedy, I wanted to consider other factors as well, such as craftsmanship, originality, performance, and cultural impact. In other words, this list seeks to capture what constituted greatness within the comedy genre throughout the 2010s and represent a wide range of subgenres, comedic voices, and senses of humor, from the darkest of black comedies to the most outlandish slapstick gags."
