      I'm not being funny (pun intended) but you really need to learn the difference between a comedy and a chick flick. A chick flick is designed to tug on your heart strings and not tickle your funny bone, don't get me wrong there are some god awful comedies in this list so bravo, but a lot of them were films which weren't actually meant to be funny. Also, a bit strapped for cash are we TF??? I may never whatch Flight now and that will be down to you guys because I am sick to death of having to delete the bloody advert from my screen!!

      One of the best features you've done in a while - not sure you included enough Eddy Murphy and Adam Sandler movies though.

      I like Me, Myself and Irene too but you may not value my support as I also find Freddy got Fingered pretty amusing.. All of the Scary Movie off shoots (Epic, Disaster, Date, Spartans etc etc) should have been number 1 on down.. I agree that Norbit is an awful film but I'd much much rather watch horribly ill concieved gags and overly gross set pieces than jokes that could honestly have been made up by unimaginative 12 year olds who think they're funny and will not shut the f**k up! That said, I like the deformed hand butler in Scary Movie 2.. Sorry

      Agreed on Me Myself and Irene, strange how when TF reviewed it originally they commented on the 'sheer frequency of belly laughs' and said 'if you don't laugh out loud at least once you need your head examined'.

      Good point Bickle84! TotalFilm, you gave Me Myself and Irene 3/5... hardly a disaster of a comedy movie. Here's your closer, verbatim; "No surprises, as directors and star play to their strengths. The plot struggles to make it to the finish line, but Carrey is in his element and if you don't laugh out loud at least once you need your head examined." And, er, I actually liked the Bottom movie! Guest House Paradiso is enjoyable. Obviously it's not for everyone! I mean, where the hell is Jack and Jill in this list?

      Actually I'm sticking up for Guest House Paradiso a bit more, it's way better than some of the s**t you've added on here! The fact Sandler's horrendous Jack and Jill isn't on says it all. And what about Ishtar? Keith Lemon? Ali G? Frankly the Borat film should be on here, too, as it was a cynical cash in where I didn't laugh once.

      This is one of the worst features Total Film has done, how can "six days, seven nights" and sex & the city 2 be considered comedies? Agreed with Jareth64, how Keith Lemon the movie isn't on here is absolutely ludicrous. I don't mind celebrity juice but the film was an absolute shambles!

Adam sandler portraying people from the middle east as basically backward and mostly dumb.

      I thought Freddy Got Fingered was pretty hilarious in parts due to the surreal nature of the whole thing. Ditto for the Scary Movie 2 dinner scene. Can't really argue for the rest though. Fred should be #1 with bells on though.

      @gwales, I have to agree with Jareth that Keith Lemon the movie is pretty dire but if you haven't seen it then I suppose you are unable to comment. It seems to be the trend with talk show hosts that they are really funny within the limitations of their studio but the same gags do not reflect well on the silver screen, look at Ali G Indahouse, terrible film but I always found the character entertaining on the telly.

      @Andy85 You could expand that further to British TV characters. Apart from In The Loop, it's difficult to think of a good crossover. Although I do find Borat quite amusing

    • Andy85

      Jan 24th 2013, 17:23

      @gwales I agree that Borat did have its moments but I think that worked because he was a bi-product of Ali G rather than a standalone spotlight act. Had he been presented with his own show, I think the pubic would have become immune to his shock tactic comedy punches, this type of humour wearing thin by the time Bruno hit the multiplexes. I have to be honest one of the funniest films I have seen this decade is Burn After Reading and I don't even think it was intended to be a straight comedy, I was weak the whole way through that film.

      I liked Me,Myself & Irene and Rat Race so poor choices there. Nearly all the Scary movies bar 1 should be on there, Date movie was easily the worst movie I've ever seen. To start a list like that go for the obvious which is pretty much every Eddie Murphy film since the Nutty professor bar Shrek and every Adam Sandler film bar Happy Gilmore.

      The writers of It's Pat included that young upstart who made Reservoir Dogs and Pulp Fiction. I forget his name now, but I'm sure it didn't hold his career back at all. Perhaps he ended up writing a few better films and finding work doing episodes of TV shows. I bet one day he'll make a comeback as a director of the big screen.

      51st the list (my opinion): Big Wedding (2013) the original French film is very bad, and I don't think that it would be nice. And the cast isn't very good. So you can vote for your confidence that this film will be terrible.

      in Rat Race, Enrico Pollini's main gimmick is that he is a narcoleptic, not his accent. Oh, and for anyone who ever makes an issue of a film entering a "Worst" list despite the initial review being OK or favourable, please remember that it is not just on person who works on the magazine / website and the person who reviewed the film most likely isn't the person who did the "Worst" feature.

      I don't agree with a lot of this list- I like The Hot Chick, Bride Wars, What Happens in Vegas, The Holiday, The Ugly Truth, and Kangaroo Jack. Gigli is cute- you have JLO to stare at if nothing else. Bradley Cooper is really funny in All about Steve- yes Sandra is annoying as s**t in it so whenever I watch that movie I just watch his parts. And Vampire Sucks is funny- the chick who plays Bella nails Kristen perfectly.
