The Writer’s Guild of America has released the 101 Funniest Screenplays and it is some bullshit. Should I differentiate between movies and screenplays? Maybe, but I won’t.
No Half Baked, Old School, Super Troopers, Knocked Up, Happy Gilmore or BeerFest? Come on. Office Space and Dumb & Dumber need to be much higher up on this list, too. Also, how hard can you possibly slob Woody Allen’s knob? The guy has seven movies on there. I feel many of these movies are more amusing than actually laugh out loud funny, e.g.- every Wes Anderson film and over half of them came out before I was born, so fuck that. If I can’t culturally identify with it, I don’t care and therefore, this list sucks.
What else do you think should be on or off the list? Though it certainly isn’t a classic, I’m gonna leave this little gem here with you. Crass Artie Lange’s, Beer League.
