So, what are everyone's nominations for the worst comedies of all time?

Mine would be:

40 year old Virgin
Carry on Henry (in fact any of the Carry On series)
Taxi 3

Anything in the Dumb and Dumber/Hangover/Jackass class.

In general, if the trailer contains a scene of somebody falling down or somebody in a ridiculous costume, it is guaranteed to be absolutely un-funny. Those kinds of sight gags are NEVER found in a truly funny picture.

"Joe Versus The Volcano". What was Tom Hanks thinking about? Also agree with the anything with Will Ferrell.

Wow, I don't agree with any of these. Who are you people? 40 year old Virgin was funny, Dumb and Dumber is a classic although you probably had to grow up with it, and the Hangover was hilarious.

As far as the person who said British comedies...Are you effing serious? What you can't find one British comedy you like? Not a Monty Python flick or Shaun of the Dead or A Fish Called Wanda?

Okay I'll admit that Joe vs the Volcano was pretty corny, but for my money the worst comedies are those Scary Movie/Supehero Movie/Date Movie films that get churned out every month by some film factory. Just **** poor ripoffs on the old Airplane/Naked Gun formula. Also Tom Green's Freddy Got Fingered was amazing for it's awfulness.

The Disaster/Date movies and the like are really, really unfunny. I find most of Judd Apatow's films to be unfunny and stilted slacker films; just really bad stuff.

I agree with you on all counts.

The worst comedy ever made is ISHTAR. And I saw it in the theater. I'm so ashamed.

I like Apatow's early stuff alot. Especially his TV shows. But beginning with Knocked Up, he just got mean and unfunny.
