Is it just me or.........
Is it me or does anyone else find the humor of Will Ferrell, Owen Wilson, Luke Wilson, Vince Vaughn, Ben Stiller (sometimes), Steve Carrell (sometimes), etc..... lame ?
There is sometimes another actor that is in the movies, but usually they keep it to this 4-some orgy for the most part like these movies:
-Kicking and Screaming
-Blades of Glory
I'm sure I probably rub people the wrong way cuz judging by these movie's profits people must like them.
I tend to find stuff politically incorrect or obscene to really be hiliaious....Family Guy/Andy D1ck
That's about it for humor. I watch horror movies 99.99% of the time
I find South Park/Dave Chappell unentertaining. Same with the Four Orgy above. It is literally the same regurgitated junk every movie. You expect them to essentially be playing 'grab ass and innocent boy' combined with incredibly childish humor in every movie. Its really hard for me to find humor in the 'humor genre' movies.

Yeah good call ! I forgot about him. Adam Sandler's Billy Madison, Happy Gilmore, Big Daddy, etc. only reinforce to me that in America if you are a 35ish degenerate you can still make a good living due to Hollywood.
I've always found these handful of ex-SNL staff to be lame. I'll admit the first movie that came out with them in it was OK, but afterwards the whole d1ck tugging got old really fast.
The thing is it never changes, its the same shlt over and over and over again, with a different scenario and different female actress.

Sure they may have their moments, but overall I don't find them that funny. In addition, if you seen one of their movies, you've seen them all. Not a very good character range....

come on...owen wilson just OD'ed and apparantly was trying to kill himself (maybe he read this thread?)...give the guy a break
Seriously though I find senseless humor entertaining. SuperBad = Hilarious!!
...but I'd rather watch someone like Bill Mahr, in all honesty.

I would say Ben Stiller is the best out of them. I find him to be pretty hilarious from time to time.
The rest of them are boring to say the least.

The comedy of a lot of those guys is improvised. I think this adds to the 'randomness' of their jokes and if you keep in mind that a lot of the things they say are being made up on the spot, that makes it a hell of a lot funnier. If you've ever done improvisation, you'd understand how freaking tough it is (I tried to get into the comedy scene in my (more)younger years). The sh*t those guys can come up with like that is really commendable.

Oh, and Kids in the Hall style of humor pwns!!!
Scott Thompson, Mark MacKinney, Kevin McDonald, Bruce McCullough, and David Foley freaking rocked back in the day. Much better than who's topping the movie scenes today (in my opinion).

Owen Wilson is hilarious. Just his way of talking alone makes me laugh my ass off.
Vince V - amazing in Swingers and has steadily declined playing the same a-hole type character in too many movies.
Ben S - is hit or miss. He's played the same "walked all over / uptight" character too many times.
Will Ferrel and Adam S are terrible.
Carrell is funny at times.
Jack Black went from teetering on the edge of annoying to unwatchable too.

A person that doesn't like South Park talking about Comedy is like Rosie O'donnel giving weight loss advice IMO.
South Park is the ultimate Litmus test for me. If you dont like the show, I cant trust your opinion on TV or movies.

I hate South Park. The humor is lame and very unintellegent.
All their material lacks even the slightest bit of intellect. It just sucks.

I think South Park is the greatest TV show ever made
I'm a fan of Farrell, Vaughn, and Stiller. Luke and Owen Wilson are just decent IMO. I'm a sucker for stupid humor. I also really miss the Chapelle show
