Modern Comedic Hidden-Gems

We're betting you haven't heard of most of the comedies on this list. Some, perhaps, with good reason; others certainly not. Make sure to check out British satire 'In the Loop' and Juno-esque coming-of-age com 'Dear Lemon Lima'!

'Movies Like Hot Rod': Goofiest Modern Slapstick

These contemporary goofy slapsticks carry on Mo, Larry, and Curly's esteemed legacy of physical comedy, sight-gags, and potty humor. Who knew there were so many surfaces upon which a man could land spread-eagle?

'Movies Like Bruno': Slapstick Character-Acts

Slapstick movies featuring comic actors playing over the top character-acts, such as Sacha Baron Cohen as 'Bruno', Mike Myers as 'Austin Powers', and David Spade as 'Joe Dirt' (which we hear will soon have a sequel). Comedy doesn't get goofier than this!

'Movies Like Anchorman': Morons, Morons, Morons Comedy

Modern comedies in the vein of Anchorman: highly entertaining characters with low IQs get themselves into a variety of scrapes, which they somehow always escape with the help of friends, luck, and their own native charm. Make sure to check out 'Alan Partridge' for the British Ron Burgundy!

'Movies Like Jackass': Idiotic Stuntmen Movies

Movies in the style of 'Jackass', featuring guys with too much time on their hands, and too few brain-cells to consider safer lines of work. Make sure to check out Andy Samberg in 'Hot Rod': a surprisingly underrated slapstick with a heart of gold!

'Billy Bob & Friends': Red-Necked Comedies

Hillbillies, trailer-park layabouts, and Billy Bob Thornton - lots and lots of Billy Bob Thornton - compose the protagonists of this collection of these trailer park comedies, which usually maintain a good heart even as they satirize. Hey, did you hear there's going to be a new 'Joe Dirt'?
