This year The major movie companies sent to screen over 350 films. Of the three hundred, over 70 would be classified as comedies. Here are a few of the best funny movies made this year.

ZACK AND MIRI MAKE A PORNO: The bills aren’t getting paid and Zack and Miri, roomies who have been friends since grade school, really need to find an answer to their money problems. Their solution? That’s obvious, make porn movies. As you can imagine this is a perfect environment for a funny film.

TROPIC THUNDER: Filled with great actors we soon see this movie is a spoof on Vietnam war movies. To get better results from his crew to make a true epic masterpiece, the now venturesome director heads into the jungle, and leaves them on their own. The object is to overwhelm them into making a war movie monster, which will be caught on hidden cameras in the area. Incredibly, because the director steps on an old land mine and dies, the spoiled actors are on their own, and they think there acting, but the bullets flying are actually real. Jack Black, Ben Stiller, Robert Downey Jr., and Tom Cruise star.

STEP BROTHERS: When two 40 year olds, who each live with their single parents, are now going to share a room because their parents have wed, you can only imagine the mess. Casting John Reilly and Will Ferrell playing the parts, and the conditions are right for a funny movie. This film is a best bet for a good laugh in 2008.

PINEAPPLE EXPRESS: Complete stoner Dale unfortunately has just viewed a crooked police man, and the local drug king pin, kill someone. He was spotted witnessing what’s gone down. Realizing this, he drops his joint of pineapple express, and he flees. The weed is so special, that it is possible to find out who has it. The chase is on, Dale and his pot dealer friend Saul are now running for their lives.


HAMLET 2: Unsuccessful actor Dana Marshz has settled into teaching the high school theater classes to students who just don’t care. The school loses a building due to destruction, so the school administration feels that the theater curriculum will be what is dropped. Now fully motivated, he is on a mission to save the theater classes by producing Hamlet 2, a new version of the classic, which he put to paper himself.

FORGETTING SAHRAH MARSHALL: Overwhelmed with grief after a break up with long time girlfriend Sarah, (an actress in a cheesy sitcom), Peter (Jason Segal) decides to get away to a Hawaiian resort to get over his misery. As one might expect, when he checks into the resort hotel, the first people he sees are the woman who just left him and her new man, who has it all. This movie has all the ingredients of a classic romantic comedy.

ROLE MODELS: Danny and Wheeler, a couple of energy drink promoters, are looking at jail time after destroying the company vehicle while binging. The only way to avoid being locked up is to perform 150 hours of community service. The catch is they will have to mentor some kids in a community service program. The pieces are all in place for this to be very funny.

GET SMART: Maxwell Smart (agent 86) makes a return to the big screen, “and loving it”. The evil organization (KAOS) verses the good guys (CONTROL), agents hidden in plants, and the cone of silence. It is a fun look back at the world of KAOS and CONTROL.

MADAGASCAR: ESCAPE 2 AFRICA: As the title suggests, this is the next in the sequence to the big hit film Madagascar. Our four animal stars are ready to go back to the Central Park Zoo, which is the only home they know. As opposed to going home, as the Penguins are up to their old tricks, they now are headed to have more adventures first.

These films, and many, many more, are yours to buy, pick up as a rental, or could even be downloaded immediately to your pc. Acquiring movie down loads from websites online is quickly becoming one of the most popular ways for accessing DVD’s. Check the internet to locate websites to start getting free downloads. This is one of the best opportunities to build a desirable library of films.
