Kevin Smith made this black and white film with only a little more than $28,000. Even though this motion picture is pretty raunchy, it’s still highly relatable. The movie commenced Kevin Smith’s signature of memorable films and is by far his best and most creative effort. It still has fans quoting, “I’m not even supposed to be here today.”
Initially, the movie was supposed to aim at youngsters who had just hit their twenties; however, it was more successful amongst adult viewers, which only made the movie more appreciated, successful, and eventually – making more money.
When three adult men decide to start their own fraternity, it’s all achieved with chaotic enthusiasm thanks to a Frat Pack cast that includes Luke Wilson, Will Ferrel, and Vince Vaughn. The obvious standout is Will Ferrell, whose inner conflict between a middle-aged family man and party-obsessed Frank provides the film with a truly funny dynamic.
Todd Philips has since made more blockbuster movies, but "Old School" remains the benchmark for his comedic work. So, in the movie, the characters are supposed to be in their 20s; however, all main actors were well into their 30s when playing the roles. So, no need for plastic surgery. Just be funny, and it will bring on the youth.
The Big Lebowski
Jeff Bridges is simply perfect as the laid-back protagonist in this Coen brothers' comedy. His character is known as "The Dude," who is mistaken for a millionaire with the same name; mishaps ensue as he gets caught up in a kidnapping ring. The film is edgy and creative, and the ensemble cast did well to create memorable characters.
Many might attribute the film's success to its pointed dialogue, but its life lessons about friendship are what make it so much more than a comedy. The movie was released more than 25 years ago and is as influential as it was back in its early days. It reminds me of the great things in Hollywood when there is no fear of crossing the lines.
In this satire about capitalism drudgery, Ron Livingston stars as a corporate drone in a computer software company, and Jennifer Anniston as an unhappy waitress. With a mix of funny one-liners and sharp dialogue, this movie is a hilarious knockdown of workplace culture.
This movie managed to hit the bullseye and easily earned its place on any list of the funniest movies ever made. The performance of each star is memorable, and the dialog is superb. The movie does an excellent job of turning American Corporate life into a comedy and still leaving the audience with something to think about.
Back to the Future
In this sci-fi movie from the 80s, Marty McFly is a small-town teen who travels back in time using an eccentric scientist's machine. It soon goes awry as Marty has to make his parents fall in love, or he'll cease to exist. While also funny, this movie is about a thrilling time-traveling adventure with an incredible cast that includes Michael J. Fox, Christopher Lloyd, and Crispin Glover.
At first, the movie wasn't intended to be a comedy, it was supposed to be more of a science fiction story; however, the characters were so unique and comic, and eventually, what brought the movie so much success.
