Taking the rewatchable aspect into comedies, its hard to place Anchorman as the best comedy. It was really fucking funny the first time through. Then the next time it was just meh and all the jokes were said by everyone and just got on my nerves.

Me Myself and Irene I could watch again and again, which I have. Its been on HBO alot recently and my Dad and I just turn it on and enjoy it.

Borat was a great movie too but the same about the rewatchable. You laugh at the jokes the first time because you aren't expecting it. When you rewatch it, you know their coming so they aren't as great.

Surprised no one has said Napoleon Dynamite. That movie was amazingly popular.

My vote goes to Anchorman though.

I'm not sure if it's my favorite comedy of the decade, but Forgetting Sarah Marshall has to be pretty well up there on my list. Even after many, many repeated viewings, it never fails to make me smile. Kristen Bell, Mila Kunis, Jason Segel, and a Dracula musical. Doesn't get much better than that, folks.

I have a bad memory so I'll just list the last comedy I saw on hulu. Just randomly watched it and thought it was pretty damn funny.

I'd go with Talledaga Nights, but I live in West Virginia so that's pretty much a documentary film to us.

Honorable mentions go to Old School and Shaun of the Dead. I really have to see the Hangover and that car salesman movie that just came out recently.

I saw Irene in the theater. Loved the bits with Jim Carrey and his sons, but I remember practically nothing about the rest of the movie.

If I recall, a lot of it was Jim and Rene running from angry gun-wielding bad guys.

I always hate it when comedies feel the need to add 'action capers' for no reason. That movie would have been a lot funnier had they just focussed on the characters- Jim and his sons for 2 hours could have been great.

I should also mention that I haven't seen it since....

Superbad on the other hand...

To make a definite choice I would need to see a list of all comedies of the last decade.

But, the first one that popped in my mind was Superbad.

I am pretty sure that people who found Superbad to be the comedy of the decade wouldn't find Shaun of the dead funny.

Watched me myself and Irene recently and it was funnier than I initially remembered. It really is a movie I can watch whenever it's on.

Was surprised how long it took for Napoleon Dynamite to be mentioned.

That's why he said them! They're hilarious.

I'm going to have to go with The Hangover. Runner ups being Anchorman and 40 Year Old Virgin.

I'm fairly easy to amuse when it comes to comedy. All you need is some well placed profanity and random, fucked up situations and I'm usually having a good time. For this reason alone, I was going to nominate Superbad for best comedy of the decade. That is until I saw this link posted. Now I'm inclined to agree with the OP.

Holy shit I forgot how amazing this movie is! :lol

But seriously, Superbad needs more respect. It did give birth to "fuck my life," after all.

It's clearly Napoleon Dynamite. It truly is a funny movie, too. As in, it doesn't rely on sex jokes every ten seconds, but rather situational humor. The entire concept is funny.

I didn't find Anchorman to be as funny as everyone said. Maybe because it took me a while to get round to seeing it and by that time I had already had every good part ruined by so many people repeating it.
