The 50 Best Comedies Since 2000: AV Club

Sixteen years in, our new millennium looks like a banner age for big-screen comedy, as eclectic as any that came before it. This is when Will Ferrell transformed the multiplex into a deliriously Dadaist screaming match; when Edgar Wright and David Wain perfected the art of the spoof, even as the Epic Movie crowd worked to destroy it; when the mockumentary came of age, with a big push from a Spinal Tap alum; and when comedians like Tina Fey and Melissa McCarthy crashed the boys' club of mainstream comedy, the latter with an assist from Paul Feig, whose Ghostbusters reboot finally hits theaters this Friday. And that's to say nothing of the big laughs major filmmakers like Wes Anderson, Paul Thomas Anderson, Roy Andersson, and several others with entirely different names smuggled into art houses over the past decade and a half.
