The Top Ten Comedies Part 1&2 Polls closed

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.

You can check out part 1 here and part 2 here.

Votes have now closed and the winners are revealed below:

The Top Ten Comedies Films 2000-2010 Part 1

The winner voted by you for part 1 is Anchorman – The Legend of Ron Burgundy (2004) with a whopping 47.73% (21 votes) beating Old School (2003) by more than double the votes to my surprise, but I liked both of these films very much and I am glad they got the most votes. Clearly Anchorman destroyed the list on part 1 and I am glad it did, plus with Anchorman 2 Coming out 2013 everyone’s happy. So for the winner of the poll here is my write up and the whole poll results below.

 

Anchorman – The Legend of Ron Burgundy (2004)

This film could literally be the most quotable and memorable comedy film ever made, everybody got a chance to say something hysterical and stupid in this film. Here is a list of quotes from Anchorman http://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/anchorman/quotes/. Anchorman is set during the 1970s and stars Will Ferrell as Ron Burgundy, San Diego’s top-rated news anchorman. While Burgundy is outwardly willing to adjust to the idea of females in the workplace — even outside of secretarial positions — he certainly doesn’t want his own job challenged. Tim’s Film Reviews Recommended.

Best scene would have to be the fight between all the news channels, it was the most ridiculous and unexpected laugh out loud moments I have ever seen and I don’t know anybody who didn’t laugh at Steve Carrell in that fight(you pick the grenade part or the trident part). Best review ‘What takes the whole thing pleasurably over the top, turning a goof into a total gas, is the film’s pitch-perfect absurdist comedy and warmth.’ Manohla Dargis. Just watch the clip below and you will get what I mean about this film.

Best scene ever:

Top Ten Comedy Films 2000-2010 Part 2

The winner voted by you for part 2 is The 40 Year Old Virgin (2005) with 31.48% (17 votes) beating the next three films which all drew at 18.52% (10 votes) this really did prove that part 2 had the votes deeply divided, but I liked that The 40 Year Old Virgin (2005) got the most votes and that this poll got the most votes in total yet (thanks everyone). So for the winner of the poll here is my write up and the whole poll results below.

 

The 40 Year Old Virgin (2005)

This is an absolutely fantastic story with heart and makes you laugh constantly. Andy Stitzer (Carell) is a cheerfully geeky guy who is settling into middle age. Andy works in an electronics store, and seems reasonably happy with his life. However, one day his friends and co-workers David (Paul Rudd), Jay (Romany Malco), and Cal (Seth Rogen) discover that Andy has a secret — due to his rather severe jitters around women, Andy is still a virgin. Andy’s pals are appalled at this state of affairs, and set out to find a woman who’d be willing to get horizontal with him. Tim’s Film Reviews Recommended.

93%

Best review “The movie belongs to Carell, who takes a one-joke role and turns him into a three-dimensional human being.” Ethan Alter. This is Steve at his best when he can make you feel like his character is a real person and make you laugh like a person who’s silly in the head. I honestly can’t pick a favourite moment but closest would probably be the bad date with drunken blonde girl which was very funny.

    Anchorman I love. I didn’t like The 40 Year Old Virgin and the rest I am mostly “eh” about. But why is Superbad not on here?? I ❤ that movie hardcore. 🙂

    I missed the voting, but I would have gone with Anchorman and Hangover, though 40 year old virgin is a good choice.

    Is the next step to see which is better between Anchorman and 40 Year Old Virgin? I think that’s a harder choice than it first seems.
