Get a new job, unless said co-worker is extremely hot. In that case just agree.

My thought is "why the fuck do you care if anybody else disagrees with your opinion of two movies".

Your gut instincts are correct. They are clearly wrong since they don't agree with the majority here.

When it comes to comedies, I make it a point never to argue over or recommend a film...people's sense of humors are EXTREMELY subjective.

White Chicks was Junk in my opinions. All the funny parts (and there weren't many) were in the Trailer.
40 Year Old Virgin was Hillarious.

The 40 Year Old Virgin is a smart and hilarious movie.
White Chicks is a stupid and awful movie.
And if you don't agree with that, then there is something wrong with you.

If I said that I thought Schindler's List was really funny...
Would you think: Everybody has an asshole and an opinion. Humor is subjective.
Or, would you think: If you think that's funny, there's something wrong with you.

Your co-worker is an idiot, or possibly brain-damaged in some way.

There is no comparison here.

There is a world of difference between preferring one comedy over another and thinking Schindler's List was funnier than Wedding Crashers.

And humor is subjective (and so is liking any movie for that matter). For example, I laughed more at Brokeback Mountain than I did at Christmas Vacation 2. If you've seen CV2, you'll understand.

Some humor just doesn't sit well with some people. Take Andrew Dice Clay for instance.

Fixed.

EDIT: You can say 40 Year old Virgin is "funnier" (as in higher grossing box office => more people thought it was funny) than White Chicks, but to each individual the definition of "funnier" can change.

Okay, given all of that, I still think the OP's co-worker is out of his fucking mind.

WHITE CHICKS was funnier than 40 YEAR OLD VIRGIN!

I think most of the posters here are just biased because they could identify more with the lead character in VIRGIN.

Hmm...and you identify more with the White Chicks?

I liked White Chicks. I thought that it was a pretty funny low brow comedy.

However, 40 Year Old Virgin had a lot more laughs, and a lot funnier ones as well.
