#1 - Anchorman - The Legend of Ron Burgundy
Endlessly quotable, and any movie featuring Will Ferrell, Paul Rudd, and Steve Carell as the stars is bound to be hilarious. Almost 7 years later and this movie still gets me every time. However unlikely, I really wish there could be a sequel. This would probably be #1 even if I didn't choose it out of a hat (although I might have peeked).Favorite part - the anchorman battle royal featuring appearances by Vince Vaughn, Luke Wilson, Ben Stiller, and Tim Robbins... a vicious cock fight!
#2 - The Hangover
This movie was definitely a "game-changer" as far as comedies are concerned. It spawned similar movies such as "Get Him to The Greek," "Due Date," and the follow-up "The Hangover 2," which I obviously cannot wait for... it's too bad Mel Gibson isn't going to be involved with the sequel.Favorite part - Ed Helms waking up in the morning, tooth missing, trying to comprehend what happened the night before.
#3 - Step Brothers
I am definitely a Will Ferrell fan, and I have pretty much liked/loved every movie he has made with the exceptions of "Stranger Than Fiction," and "Land of the Lost." One of my favorite things about the movie is Rob Riggle's character, I cannot get enough of him.Favorite part - the brothers attempt to make a bunk bed, with disastrous consequences.
#4 - Superbad
This movie came out right as I was beginning college, so the comparisons with Seth and Evan's adventures with my friends and I were numerous. It also introduced me to Emma Stone, and that's never a bad thing.Favorite part - Seth Rogan and Bill Hader trying to get a description of the liquor store robber from the cashier, who has an exam the next morning and isn't too happy about it.
#5 - Wedding Crashers
I'm usually not a fan of Owen Wilson, but Wedding Crashers has just the right balance of Wilson to go along with Vince Vaughn's little comments about everything to make it hilarious.Favorite part - Owen Wilson takes a trip to see the wedding crashing god Will Ferrell. "MOM... THE MEATLOAF... FUCK!!!"
#6 - Get Him to the Greek
This movie was the first time I ever really enjoyed watching Russell Brand act, even though he played the same exact character in "Forgetting Sarah Marshall." It also showed everybody that P. Diddy can be funny as hell.Favorite part - P. Diddy explaining to Jonah Hill the art of the "Mind Fuck."
#7 - Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan
This movie is a departure from the style of the other movies on my list, and you can pretty much argue that the other 9 movies in the list could simply swap around characters and have pretty much the same movie. However, "Borat" was just so different from other movies that had come out at the time, and Sacha Baron Cohen really just took it to a whole new level.Favorite part - Cohen's Borat staying the night in a lovely old Jewish couple's bed and breakfast, only to freak out at the sight of "shape-shifting Jew" cockroaches and storm out of the place.
#8 - I Love You, Man
I am a very big Paul Rudd fan, and the combination of Rudd and Jason Segel is what really makes this movie work. In fact, they might be my favorite 1-2 combination for comedies after maybe Will Ferrell-John C. Reilly. I also love Rashida Jones in this film.Favorite part - Every one of Paul Rudd's awkward exchanges with Jason Segel... "See you later, Joben!"
#9 - Pineapple Express
I initially was turned off to this movie because I figured it would only appeal to stoners, but after watching it I was really pleased with what I saw. Seth Rogan and James Franco are hilarious together, and you do not have to be a pot head to enjoy it.Favorite part - the fight scene involving Seth Rogan, James Franco, and Danny McBride. " THIS. ENDS. NOWWWWWWWWWW!!!"
#10 - Due Date
Much in the line of "The Hangover" and "Get Him to the Greek," "Due Date" follows the story of an epic journey from point A to point B. Robert Downey, Jr. is way funnier than people give him credit for, and Zach Galifianakis is essentially the same character from "The Hangover," and it hasn't gotten old yet.Favorite part - Robert Downey, Jr. punching a 10 year old boy in the stomach. Priceless.
Here are some movies that didn't make the cut but I still love:Hot Tub Time MachineKnocked UpThe 40 Year Old VirginRole ModelsOld SchoolAnd I know I don't have any older movies on here, with my oldest one being 2004's "Anchorman," but I'm just not a huge Adam Sandler, Jim Carrey, or Leslie Nielson fan, sorry.
