    My least favorite comedy is Get Hard. Just a stinker of a film!

    Jeez, where to start?

    "This is 40" - this is garbage!

    "Cop Out" - how do you pair Bruce Willis and Tracy Morgan and come up entirely empty?

    That's your least favorite comedy of all-time? Really? :confused:

    "Get Hard" is no classic, but it has more than a few funny moments. It's not a bad movie at all, much less the worst comedy of all-time.

    I predict this thread will mostly be about well-regarded/big-name films people dislike, not really about truly terrible films...

    Although I think it's kind of funny.. I've never meet anyone who has felt this film was funny.. or entertaining.

    I would also say the following film was pretty unfunny.. Shocking considering the talent involved

    I kinda found that part where Rip Torn drops his pants in front of Tom just as Julie Haggarty walks in sort of funny.

    And Tom waking up the neighborhood using a nail gun on his skateboard ramp.

    Licking open wounds and watching horses fornicate while eating a sandwich isn't my idea of funny, but I guess I have to admire his commitment to remain true to his own warped sense of humor.
  7. It's Pat. The SNL sketches were funny until they beat the concept to death. There are some very funny people in the movie but there isn't a single decent laugh to be had. None.

    I used to love that movie when it came out in 1997.

    Granted I was 10 :angel:

    Pleased to meet you: I'm Galeans and I think this movie is pretty hilarious in a grotesque kind of way.

    I used to like Adam Sandler but he really stopped being funny in 1998. Grown Ups (1&2) are horrible movies IMO.

    "Jack and Jill" - I hate Adam Sandler but watched this just to see Al Pacino acting like a jackass. Mission accomplished. But my God, the other stuff that was supposed to be funny....who watches this crap? Does Sandler just keep experimenting to see how much more low-brow he can push things? Oh look, there's.....

    "Grown Ups 2" - okay, I admit I was foolishly charmed by the first one, which was garbage, but mildly distracting garbage, but this sequel has absolutely nothing going for it. A lazy, worthless, shameful piece of trash that shouldn't even exist. When in the first 3 minutes of the film you have already seen a frightened deer (who has conveinently wandered into Adam Sandler's bedroom) urinating in the face of several cast members you know you are in trouble.

    Hangover 2 - I liked the first one well enough but this one kinda made me start to hate the whole franchise. Practically the same movie, just in a different location. Lame cash in. That lady at the strip club was hot, though.

    Hangover 3 - Wait....did I even see this? I can't even remember anymore, that's how good it was.

    Ishtar. Painful in every sense of the word.
    And 1941 was not far behind

    I've never laughed at anything involving Fred Armisen. Not even a chuckle.

    As a single parent with 2 kids (now teenagers) I sat through my share of stinkers.
    But none so bad as Mike Myers' "The Cat In The Hat".
    Terrible movie - the attempts at sneaking in some 'adult humor' just come off as puerile and smutty.
    Even my kids didn't like it that much. And back then, they thought everything was funny.
    The only good thing about this movie is that there will not be a sequel - Dr. Seuss' wife withdrew the rights when
    she saw how appalling it was.

  19. Not a movie but I watched an episode of 'Two Broke Girls' the other night and I'm struggling to think of anything more pathetic!

    You are correct.
    Everyone who posts here should list a couple movies that they do think is funny. Except for me.

    I've enjoyed every movie Will Ferrell has been in except 'Bewitched' and it's his performance that makes the film so awful. It's like he's acting badly on purpose because no actor could really be that terrible.

    Remove Chevy Chase and Billy Crystal (since I like a couple of their movies) and add Jim Carrey and you have my list.

    I've not seen "Bewitched" in 10 years, but apparently I agreed with you:

    "Speaking of talent, Ferrell has plenty of it, but he doesn’t show it here. He does poorly in the role because he never makes Jack even remotely sympathetic or likable. Jack’s a cartoony buffoon and egotist who we actively dislike most of the time. Why would Isabel fall for that jerk? I have no idea, and this bad choice by Ferrell mars the film. Since he’s such a prick, we never understand or accept the romantic side of the story. Jack and Isabel connect because the movie tells them to do so; there’s no logic or integrity to that side of things."
