Without clicking your link, I'm guessing your #1 comedy is Forgetting Sarah Marshall.

Am I right?

No, it wasn't. And it received mostly positive reviews.

I don't think plugging a pointless blog is against the rules.

He's not selling anything, just writing crap.

I didn't really think about In Bruges being a comedy. It would be number one on my list though.

Yeah I agree, but since I found it funnier than most movies deemed "comedies" I put it on the list.

I thought the first 30-40 minutes of Step Brothers was hilarious. But the rest was just boring and painful to watch and I found myself losing interest. Sarah Marshall and Zack And Miri didn't do much for me either.

Tropic Thunder I love. Burn After Reading I found quite funny. Religilous was ok. Need to see In Bruges, Role Models (trailer was funny as hell), Pineapple Express and Rock N Rolla. Oh and I have no doubt I will quite enjoy Synodoche, New York.

Synecdoche, NY is in no way a comedy. There are funny parts, but overall I would classify it as Drama.

No other comedies really did it for me (assuming that In Bruges doesn't count, cause I can't nail down a genre for that film)

I haven't seen any of the films mentioned in this thread so far and I don't feel compelled to make an effort to correct this at all.
