Comedy movies are supposed to be hilarious, full of humor, something that can make us laugh our guts out. But what if the comedy movies don’t make us laugh at all or the jokes are really not funny? Then those are the movies that suck big time.
Here’s a list of comedy films that suck.
This movie was a parody of films, namely: “Da Vinci Code,” “The Chronicles of Narnia,” “Harry Potter,” “Superman Returns,” “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory,” “Pirates of the Caribbean,” “Wolverine” and others. Even after being a parody of so many hit films, this film couldn’t do well. It still managed to gross four times than its original budget. We can’t figure out how did that happen.
“Meet the Spartans”
It was a spoof of the famous movie “300,” which was about the heroic king of Sparta, Leonidas, who fought bravely with his few men against Xerxes and his army. This movie was a complete trash, as it has nothing much to laugh at. It only mocked the movie “300” and its characters.
“Son of the Mask”
This was a bad remake of “The Mask.” James Kennedy cannot be compared with Jim Carrey. No match at all. Carrey was the only actor suited for the movie and had played the character very well as his expressions are more than enough to make someone laugh, you don’t even need dialogues for him.
“Jack and Jill”
Can’t believe that actors like Adam Sandler and Al Pacino have worked in this movie. The story is very lame, there is nothing new or different and it’s the same old double roles — a man whose sister looks exactly like him. The director invested on getting good actors on board, but he forgot to get a good story.
This is a spoof of the popular “Twilight” series and a complete waste. The story is similar to the “Twilight” film, where a girl was torn between two lover boys. The director didn’t want to spend his time searching for a story or writing a new one. Instead, he modified some lines and turned those into jokes.
It is the third sequel of the original movie “Meet the Parents,” then came “Meet the Fockers” — both movies have a great humor. The concept of a patriarchal family and the ancestral property being passed on to the next generation was new then, but it has become repetitive in the third sequel. Even though the film has a great cast, such as Robert De Niro, Ben Stiller and Jessica Alba, it didn’t manage to impress the audience.
We all loved the movie “Bruce Almighty,” which starred Jim Carrey. However, the sequel, “Evan Almighty” did not match the standards of the original film. Was it the story or the actor? No idea. It definitely felt as if something was missing in this movie.
This movie was a desperate attempt to bring together good actors like Ben Stiller (“Meet the Parents,” “The Royal Tenenbaums”), and Jack Black and also Barry Levinson, an Academy Award winner, to create a great comedy film. But it failed.
“The Bounty Hunter”
In this movie, a bounty hunter played by Gerard Butler and his ex-wife, Jennifer Aniston, were on a run, when he found out that her life is at risk. Same issue — good actors, bad story.
“All About Steve”
Another romantic comedy failure. In the movie, Sandra was a crossword puzzle writer who was socially awkward and has a pet hamster whom she talks to. One day, she finds a handsome cameraman in a TV news channel, and she started getting obsessed with him.
A good story complements a great cast. Share us your thoughts by posting your comments below.
