Some guys would rather challenge Dwayne Johnson to a cage match than watch romantic comedies. Others are butter-soft and can't mess with horror flicks. But there’s one film genre that every man, woman, and child can agree upon, and that’s comedy. Who doesn't want to laugh every now and then?
Just because a movie has the "comedy" tag, however, doesn’t guarantee that it'll actually make you laugh. The last time we checked, some of Tyler Perry's unendurable flicks fall under this category, as do Pauly Shore's movies and Carrot Top's punishing Chairman of the Board. So, yeah, picking the right comedy entails some discretion. That's where we come in, fam. A few years back, Complex put together our 50 favorite funny movies; since then, though, a bunch of great comedies have blessed cinemas and made us re-evaluate our list.
The result: Our scrupulously rebuilt countdown of The 50 Funniest Movies of All Time, completed after hours of laughter. Your Netflix queue is naked without it.
