The last decade was a great one for funny films. Comedy movies of the 2000’s were plentiful and hilarious. While it’s hard to pick and choose the best ones, here are some that couldn’t get viewers to stop laughing.

John and Jeremy eventually find true love and have a happy ending.
2) Pineapple Express (2008)

This hilarious mockumentary follows Kazakh television personality Borat as he takes a tour around America with hopes of learning more about the greatest country in the world. He finds himself among members of a gay parade, in a rodeo, engaging in a nude wrestling match, and involved in many other random and entertaining scenarios. Very nice.
5) Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy (2004)

7) The 40-Year-Old Virgin (2005)

10) Meet The Parents (2000)
Nobody likes meeting the parents of their significant other. It can be a nerve-wracking or extremely awkward experience. What makes this one of the best comedy movies of the 2000’s is that everybody can relate to it in some way. While not exactly a family movie, Meet The Parents is an enjoyable film that should be viewed with those closest to you.
