Worst comedy of 2008

Want to read your post on what you would say was is the "Worst Comedy" of 2008??

I'll start if off and say, "Love Guru" hands down so far for my taste.

Every comedy I saw this year is actually good. I'll say Love Guru, even though I didn't see it.

(I saw Tropic Thunder, Forgetting Sarah Marshall, Pineapple Express, and Get Smart. Of the ones I saw, Pineapple was probably the worst.)

Pineapple Express was the worst that I saw. I also didn't see Love Guru or Get Smart, but I thought Pineapple Express was lame.

I think its been a pretty good year for comedies. I've enjoyed Pineapple Express, Forgetting Sarah Marshall, Tropic Thunder, Get Smart, Sex Drive, and Role Models. I haven't seen Love Guru, but I did see the House Bunny and thought that was kind of lame.

Yeah, I thought it was a pretty good year.

By far, the best comedy is... Tropic Thunder

If I had to pick from the loooooong list of movies I seen in theaters I would say Meet The Spartans or Disaster Movie, both were horrible. I actually like The Love Guru.

Meet the Spartans was horrible, if it came out in 2008, I don't really know. I didn't see the Love Guru

Ill go with Tropic Thunder, as i expected good things and was sorely dissapointed. At least Zohan and Guru i expected nothing and got nothing.

27 Dresses, perhaps. Me and the girlfriend have tried getting more than a half hour into it twice. It sucks humor away.

Most disappointing was Tropic Thunder. I won't watch Love Guru, so I can't choose that. What Happens in Vegas was pretty crappy though.

You are right.

My vote goes to The Love Guru. That iS so far the worst film Ive seen this year. I havnt seen Meet the Spartans or An American Carol (and never will) but I imagine they are even worse.
Pineapple Express was not funny either and there were very few laughs in Forgetting Sarah Marshall and Tropic thunder (but I still kinda like these two movies n some way at least.)
