borat easily.

as for the most rewatchable, im not sure.

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.

I promise to never again shit talk the Nats..
haha, I hope this year turns some heads so alot of others feel the same way.
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, for one, will stand and salute: Me Myself and Irene, I'll happily bow to its greatness.

edit: yes I fucking wasted and my statement is still vaild
Definitely in my top 3. I saw this again the other day for the first time in years and I'd dub it classic. Tons of good shit comedy wise dropped this decade though.
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....

I haven't seen the movie in the op but my personal favourites are these, anyway:

Hot Fuzz

Shaun of the Dead

Just seeing those pics makes me grin. :D
I don't know where's the funny on those movies. I was told Shaun of the Dead was the best fucking zombie comedy of the century, and I didn't laugh a single time.

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.


formerly omg rite

zoolander and step brothers? This isn't "unfunniest movies of the decade" thread.
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.

Undercover Brother should get an honorable mention for best surprise of the decade.
"You see it all through history, they never give the black man credit.
Jesus Christ: black man.
Babe Ruth: Black! Man!
Madonna: .... sleeps with black men.
Think about it."

Good o'l Chappelle.
The first ten minutes are genuinely hilarious, I'll give it that, but the rest of Me, Myself and Irene is a forgettable bore-fest with not a single laugh.
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.
