Most Overrated Comedy Movies


The Top Ten

1 The Hangover

Completely undeserving of the sequels it got.

It's a great movie! The only thing bad with it are its sequels, but other than that I love this movie

Repeated viewing doesn't explain why this movie made $462 million at the worldwithe box office. - Alexandr

The hangover is, at best, average. the fact it is so highly rated is less a statement on how good it is and instead a statment on how terrible all the other comedies of the modern age are that its made to look good by comparison.

2 Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan

Amazing movie, people just don't understand the satire. And I'm fine with that. I just disagree.

Nothing special about it - Alexandr

This film is not overrated, at all it's the funniest film of the 2000s

3 The Big Lebowski

Alexander I am sorry but what a dumb comment you typed down there bro

I love this movie but its humor was built on strong language and other brutal expressions - Alexandr

This film is amazing! What is it doing here

4 Dumb and Dumber

Heh, the funny thing is that it is unrated. Get it? The Austin Powers movies are good movies, they are popular. Not overrated, overrated is like if it is used to much and shouldn't be. But the Austin Powers movies are awesome, so let's not say overrated.

Its not a bad movie. When I was thirteen I watched it and laughed, but its definitely not one of the best comedies of all time as people claim it to be

The dumbest movie I've ever saw and the worst comedy of all time ( is it comedy? ).
I think the title was chosen to point out what kind of people look at such crap movies.

5 Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery

I could put all the Austin Powers movies on this list with a clear conscience. I just don't get it. - Alexandr

6 Tropic Thunder

No. Monty Python and the Holy Grail is the GOD of comedy films. Why? It's not all jokes about the parts past our waists and actually uses comedy creatively. That's why it deserves all of the praise it gets. Putting it on this list is like saying The Godfather is the worst movie of all time, it will get a storm stirring. - MontyPython

7 Monty Python and the Holy Grail

Who would vote for this?!

Monty python is very hit or miss either you love or you hate it.
however I love this movie and whoever doesn't I fart in your general direction - Retroman64

8 Step Brothers

Just because it has 300 billion swear words in it and has Adam Sandler in it that doesn't mean its funny.

Truly an awful movie built off bad sex jokes and lame one-liners.

Just not that funny! I don't know why everyone thinks it is.

Not sure what is worse, this film or Will Ferrell as a comedy actor

9 Three Amigos
10 Weekend at Bernie's

The Contenders

11 Some Like It Hot

This film is great. definitely not overrated

12 Bruno
13 The Waterboy

Yes. Definitely. Why? Because look at the Adam Sandler lists. Why are there so many possitive comments about this mean-spirited, unfunny, uncreative and above all, STUPID excuse for a “movie? ” - IDONTCARE

14 Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy

Overrated also Will Ferrell is a retard, jerk, ahole. - TheAlterPlace

15 Grown Ups
16 Caddyshack

Does not hold up at all!

17 This Is the End
18 Bad Moms

It just wasn't as funny as it could have been considering it's the same writers behind The Hangover. Watch Bridesmaids instead of this unfunny waste of talent. The actresses are better than this to be honest.

19 Ted
20 Billy Madison

I'm glad I'm not the only one who doesn't like this. I mean, sexual harassment isn't funny if it doesn't have any substance built around it to make it funny. All you see is a guy sexually harassing his own teacher. How's that supposed to be funny?

21 Adventureland

Adventureland is a comedy drama dumbass

OK how the hell is Step Brothers overrated? That movie got virtually no love from critics and general viewing audiences.
That being said Adventureland barely made me laugh. Jesee Eisenberg and Kristen Stewart should avoid comedy because they're not good at it.

OK How in the hell is Step Brothers overrated? That movie got virtaully no love from critics or general viewing audiences.
Now Adventureland was a comedy that was virtually laugh-free. Jesee Eisenberg and Kristen Stewart should stay away from comedy, they aren't good at it.

22 American Wedding

It's the worst one out of all of em. However it isn't bad... - Cookiecutter26

Comedy Which Comes with a Marriage...

23 Ghostbusters

It's definitely good, just not the Holy Grail some people make it out to be.

24 M*A*S*H
25 Captain America: Civil War

Uh, this isn't a comedy?

26 Napoleon Dynamite
27 Airplane!
28 American Pie
29 Super Bad
30 Knocked Up
31 Stir Crazy

Does not hold up well.

32 This is Spinal Tap

Not funny at all, maybe a few chukles. If you want a funny mockumentary you are better watching Borat

33 Due Date
34 Bridesmaids
35 Dr. Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas
36 Happy Gilmore
37 Mrs. Doubtfire
38 Encino Man

I just can't stand Pauley Shore.

39 Super Troopers

Never understood what people saw in this film. I guess taste really IS subjective.

40 Neighbors

Don't get me wrong, it's quite funny, but not Seth Rogen's best.

41 The 40 Year Old Virgin
42 Zombieland
43 Animal House
44 Wedding Crashers
45 Ace Ventura: Pet Detective

Once you take your nostalgia goggles off, you'll realize how transphobic this film really is.

46 Dirty Grandpa
47 3 Idiots
