Top 10 Comedies of 2008

I always love a great film that would make me laugh. 2008 was not the best year for comedies, but there were still plenty of films that put a smile on my face.

10. Leatherheads

George Clooney’s homage to screwball comedies was a wonderfully funny film.

9. In Bruges

All the comedy in this film was dues to Collin Farrel’s wonderful performance as one of the most politically incorrect hitmen around.

8. Zack and Miri Make a Porno

Kevin’s Smith’s most controversial film in a while, was also quite funny.

7. Forgetting Sarah Marshall

While Judd Apatow risks overexposing himself with his productions, this film still delivered the laughs.

6. Get Smart

Steve Carell helped create a hilarious adaptation of the classic TV show.

5. You Don’t Mess with the Zohan

This film was undoubtedly Adam Sandler’s funniest film in years.

4. Burn After Reading

The Coen Brothers have made a hilarious comedy that is right up there with The Big Lebowski.

3. Nick & Norah’s Infinite Playlist

This was a great little film that not many people checked out.

2. Happy-Go-Lucky

Not only is it a great comedy, but it will make you feel good when you see it.

1. Tropic Thunder

Ben Stiller hit it out of the park with this great satire of both Hollywood and war movies. Worth seeing just for Robert Downey Jr’s performance.
