From your list- Hot Fuzz (2007) or Shaun of the Dead (2004)




Would you consider adding any of these?

Some are in my list.
And some are from 2010s, so they are excluded.
I have chosen popular movies with Comedy as the main or only genre. I don't want action-comedy's, drama-comedy or romcom's. I know, for some movies you can discuss about that. Like Hot Fuzz. You can see it as a action-comedy. But I think that comedy is the main genre in this movie. It's supposed to be funny.
If you miss a particular movie in my list, I can think about it and maybe replace it.

While not necessarily all that funny, my vote goes to Click.

One of the worst shotgunned lists ever published on IMDb.  Too many literal Razzie winners in the pot.

Shotgunned?

Shotgunned = no rhyme or reason behind the construction of the list AKA blasted randomly all over the place.  No distinct methodology behind the list other than possible personal preference from the creator of said list.

Given the lack of any criteria explicitly stated on the list beyond the range of years) there are 48993 comedy based feature films from the years 2000 to 2009.
http://www.imdb.com/search/title?title_type=feature&release_date=2000-01-01,2009-12-31

We've apparently given up on the once very necessary conditions that would keep a list at a reasonable maximum of 35 (and restricting personal favorite lists).

I selected the movies with care. There is a thought behind the list and the movies are not my personal favorites.
My idea was to select movies where comedy is the main theme. The movie must be made to make the viewer laugh and nothing besides that. So I didn’t want action-comedy’s or drama-comedy’s. The criteria was that comedy is the main genre.
They must be made to laugh. Often they are not the best movies. I agree, but I think it’s great to see them together in a poll.
So how could I select this movies otherwise than select them myself? It’s my opinion that some titles do fit in the list and others not. Nothing wrong with that I think.

Hot Fuzz is hilarious, and Dodgeball and School of Rock are okay, but the rest are mediocre-at-best, and most are terrible.

Sad to see Hera Pheri is not on the list.

DC also didn't suggest it.
