Laughter is the best medicine, but not when it comes to these comedy movies. We’ve all been there, watching a so-called comedy film with high hopes only to be disappointed by its lackluster humor and predictable plot. Here’s a list of the worst comedy movies ever made that will make you cringe instead of laugh.
1. Movie 43
This star-studded, raunchy comedy anthology was supposed to be a hit, but it ended up being a complete disaster. Movie 43 features a series of skits that are crass, unfunny, and just plain offensive. Even the all-star cast, including Hugh Jackman, Kate Winslet, and Halle Berry, couldn’t save this film from being one of the worst comedy movies ever made.
‘I felt like I was being punished for something I had done wrong in a previous life.’
Eddie Murphy plays three characters in this 2007 comedy, but that’s not enough to save it from being a flop. The movie is filled with fat jokes, racial stereotypes, and offensive humor that falls flat. Norbit is a cringe-worthy film that should have never been made.
‘Eddie Murphy’s career is like a rocket ship that has left the planet.’
3. Grown Ups 2
Adam Sandler’s career has been on a downward spiral for years, and Grown Ups 2 is proof of that. The movie is filled with juvenile humor, cheap gags, and a plot that’s completely nonsensical. Even the talented cast, including Chris Rock and Salma Hayek, can’t save this movie from being a snooze-fest.
‘Grown Ups 2 is so lazy and uneventful that it feels like a made-for-TV movie.’
4. Jack and Jill
Speaking of Adam Sandler, Jack and Jill may be his worst movie yet. Sandler plays both the titular characters, and the film relies heavily on offensive jokes and tired stereotypes. The movie is so bad that even the Razzies gave it a record-breaking ten nominations.
‘Jack and Jill is the kind of movie that makes you question your faith in humanity.’
5. Holmes & Watson
This 2018 comedy stars Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly as Sherlock Holmes and Dr. John Watson, but the movie is far from a classic. The humor is forced, the plot is convoluted, and the chemistry between the two leads is non-existent. Holmes & Watson is a forgettable film that should have never been made.
‘It’s hard to believe that the same duo that brought us Step Brothers could produce something this unfunny.’
These are just a few examples of the worst comedy movies ever made. If you’re looking for a good laugh, it’s best to steer clear of these films and opt for something with a little more wit and humor.
