In Bruges


I was gonna say, like dark comedies are best for not losing momentum cuz they just change their energy into a different kind of momentum.

And In Bruges is particularly cool b/c it is still funny even as the darkness descends on everyone.

That is the definition of a comedy, dude. Almost all comedies ever follow that.

1 - character has a problem

2 - problem gets worse

3 - problem gets worse

4- problem gets solved

5 - resolution

Death at a Funeral had it's serious moments but they only helped you catch your breath momentarily for the next laugh. Basically didn't stop laughing the whole way through it.

Pineapple Express seemed to hold it's momentum. Atleast to me.

And I know a LOT of people will disagree with me, but Your Highness was decently funny all the way through.

I seem to remember MacGruber being really good, but it's been a while, I could be wrong.

1 - food poisoning

2 - plane almost crashes

3 - plane doesn't crash

I'm referring to the more specific formula involving characters, mostly friends, always having a falling out about 60% into the movie, then coming together in th end to achieve their goal.

If Australians hated every movie starring a bunch of people with different accents, we'd have approximately 3 good movies to watch.

In my opinion, it is good for some comedies to deviate from total laughter and have dramatic scenes. Click and Mrs. Doubtfire had me tearful from laughter and sadness

Not a strict comedy but Scott Pilgrim is consistently funny.

And @ the dude who didn't think Big Lebowski was funny, you have to watch it like 5 times. I didn't like it the first couple of times I saw it, but now it gets better with each viewing.

That's why you have running jokes, TS.

That's also why it gets edited like this post except into acts with act breaks, if it's a sitcom.

Borat is the only film I can think of right now which genuinely makes me crack up. I love Jim Carey films despite how a lot of people seem to dislike him. Oh and Star Wars I and II are hilarious.

Off topic here, I think it's fun watching children's films and shows and finally getting the jokes that flew over my head when I was younger. Like in Toy Story when Buzz was depressed and drinking tea with those other toys, he was actually meant to be drunk.
