Now just to state that originally I had a list of 38 comedy films and then had to cut it down to just 10 films so I know people will be asking why their favourite film isn’t on here and believe me it was hard to cut 28 of my favourite comedy films off the list, but the films on the list are the best of the best and deserve your laughs. Part 2 will be released on Wednesday.
This film is fantastically weird and I loved the whole skit of the fashion and model world. Comic actor Ben Stiller co-wrote, directed, and stars in this spoof of the fashion industry that began as a short skit for the 1996 VH1 Fashion Awards. Stiller is Derek Zoolander, an intellectually challenged but bone structure-blessed male model who’s despondent after being eclipsed in popularity by an equally vacuous rival, Hansel (Owen Wilson). Tim’s Film Reviews Recommended.
My favourite scene would have to be the final scene of conflict between ben and wills characters from the fantastic over reactions of Will Ferrell to Ben Stiller’s perfect portrayal of a truly stupid person, oh and of course the magnum pose had me on the floor laughing. The thing I really liked about this film is that it’s stupid from start to end but I didn’t care because I was laughing too much, quick note but definitely one of Owen Wilson’s best comedic performances.

Old School (2003)
Frank The Tank! Frank The Tank! Ah Will Ferrell you hilarious man child. Three men relive their carefree college years by killing off as many brain cells as possible in this over-the-top comedy. Mitch (Luke Wilson) returns home from a less-than-pleasant business trip one evening to discover his wife, Heidi (Juliette Lewis), involved in a ménage à trois with two blindfolded strangers. Feeling less than welcome at home after this, Mitch rents a house near the campus of a nearby college; two of Mitch’s old college buddies, Beanie (Vince Vaughn) and Frank (Will Ferrell), stop by to cheer him up. Tim’s Film Reviews Recommended.
Best scene by far would be the forming a fraternity and the one of the initiations which was, well, very harsh to say the least for one student. You’ll agree if you’ve seen it, the bridge, rope, a weight attached to erm… a certain extremity. Will Ferrell made his mark on this decade and in this film shows off why he has made such an impression on this list, mainly the absurd behaviour he commits to his characters.
