I watched about 12 movies released in 2011 that tried to make America laugh. These are the 5 that succeeded in making me laugh, at the very least.
5. Kung Fu Panda 2
Even though it’s animated, and aimed at children, the vocal talents of Jack Black and Seth Rogen can make anyone laugh! It has just as many comical lines as the first, and Black has some real knee slappers.
4. Horrible Bosses
An honest effort at a Hangover-esque hit, but it missed by just a bit. There were still quite a few gut-busting lines though.
This is partly out of pity, since I heard that Russel Brand will no longer be married to Katy Perry. It’s sad. But anything with Russel Brand can make me laugh, and this is no exception. Helen Mirren even draws a few chuckles.
The biggest box office comedy success of 2011, Bridesmaids presents itself as the females return to real comedy. The girls are hysterical, but I do hold the number 1 spot for someone else.
1. Our Idiot Brother
The most hilarious movie of the year, Paul Rudd has his best role ever in Our Idiot Brother. No one else could have pulled it off quite the same. He and T.J. Miller are perfect together, awesome!
