    I can’t believe anyone thinks he’s actually funny in King

    I just watched "The Pest"..... dear God, that was not good.

    I mean, I like dumb comedies. I loved "Freddy Got Fingered." "The Jerk Too" even grew on me, as bad as it is. "The Pest" is a disaster.

    The Police Academy movies are largely unfunny.

    BTW - Cabin Boy is great. A cult classic in the waiting.

    He was probably thinking- "I can still find work in entertainment and don't have to get a regular day job."

    My daughters used to watch this one all the time, and I tried to like it since it didn't have a laugh track (a deal-breaker for me anymore). Really, really tried to like it. Not horrible but not funny.

    Lily Tomlin.

    Must be an American thing. Had never heard of her until I got the SNL Season 1 set, and other things I've seen her in or come across hasn't changed my opinion.

    The last few Will Ferrell movies:

    Eurovision
    Downhill
    Holmes And Watson
    The House

    He is definitely on a roll
    Seems like he does better when he is not in a leading roll.

    Actually I saw Grown Ups(2010) and I had a few good laughs. I knew it would be stupid but was looking for some mindless entertainment and this satisfied it very well. Chris rock has some good lines in it.

    I like the previous Christopher Guest ensemble comedies, but I couldn’t find anything to laugh at in this one. Maybe it wasn’t supposed to be a comedy?

    Odd humor is difficult to pull off, it’s real easy to take it too far.

    Fantastic show. Absolutely hilarious!

    And that’s sad that you need a laugh track. Can’t stand laugh tracks.

    No, it's a comedy, and a pretty good one, IMO. Not as good as the others, but entertaining:
