Default Lack of comedies out of hollyweird...

Was flipping channels earlier and came across Dodgeball. Great movie, but hollyweird doesnít seem interested in making movies that make us laugh anymore...what happened?

JoJo Rabbit is the best movie I have ever seen, hands down.

I was crying laughing on second then actually crying the next then back to laughing. That movie is an emotional roller coaster.

Taika Waititi is a freaking genius!

I will have to ck out Jojo Rabbit this weekend.
I never heard of it till this thread and read the intro and it sounds great.

I have been watching a lot of stand up specials on Netflix for a good offensive gut busting humor.
Chapelle, Bill Burr and Anthony Jeselnick's latest specials are some of their best released. There are a bunch of others that are good too.

I know OP said comedies, but Chapelle's latest special could be some of his best work of all time. Better than Chapelle show.

His last two Netflix specials have a storyline that almost resemble a movie.

Do yourself and watch the other two guys I mentioned.

I really like Jeselnick too. Tom Segura is probably my favorite right now.

I would say they are going to cable tv/streaming services rather than the traditional four networks more than ever now.

Ok so I rented JoJo Rabbit after reading the above. Um not sure I saw the same movie yall did. It wasnt funny at all. It was decent movie for a drama and had some good lessons. But funny? Dont think I laughed once, the Hitler guy was kind of humorous but just in a slapstick kind of way. Based on above I was expecting this lol comedy. Hmm

20 years ago they started warping our sense of humor. Comedies got more and more childish, crass and immature with foul improper humor (and it cracks me up) they continued to push humor more and more offensive and sexist...and then they decided that you should NEVER say anything that could offend or hurt someone’s feelings so now they can’t make us laugh without being politically incorrect!

I rented it as well and was sadly disappointed. One or two chuckles but not much more than that

I feel like all the greats don't want to make funny movies anymore. They all so worried about political correctness and hurting someone's feelings that you can't poke fun at any group. Movies like Blazing Saddles, Police Academy or even newer ones won't be made any more. Tropic Thunder is 10 years old and would never be able to have been made in 2020. People like Adam Sandler haven't made a funny movie since the 90's.


Bert Kreischer has a pretty good standup special out called "Secret Time". The stories about his dad had me rolling.

This is the issue. Ben Stiller recently apologized for making Tropic Thunder. Can you imagine the outcry if "The Jerk" came out recently. Steve Martin acting black for an entire movie would get him ****canned in Hollywierd.
