Who here considers themselves a comedy expert? In terms of movie genres, comedy is the most universal. While everyone has their own favorites of course, when it comes down to it, everybody enjoys a good laugh. So while some of us still enjoy thrillers, action, romance, and other types of films, we can all pretty much agree that comedies are awesome. After a long hard day at the office, who doesn't want to kick their feet up and enjoy a few giggles? That being said, we need to know once and for all which ones are truly the best of the bunch.
In today's quiz, we will be listing comedies individually and all everyone has to do is vote on which ones were funniest. Everyone will get the chance to vote "funny" or "lame" for each film, and once every question has been answered we will match everyone to their perfect funny guy. Some of these films will be newer, while others a bit more old school, that is specifically why this quiz is for the comedy experts out there. Anyone who thinks they know funny better than anyone else, needs to take this quiz today. We have nothing to lose, and only laughs to gain!
