The Funniest Movies Of The 2000s

List RulesVote up the comedies released between January 2000 and December 2009 that make you laugh the hardest.

Here is a list of the funniest movies of the 2000s. These are the greatest comedy films released in the 2000-2009 range of hilarity, some of which are the best comedies of all time. Judd Apatow and Steve Carell struck comedy gold in the early 2000s with The 40-Year-Old Virgin, as he continued, he forgot Sarah Marshall and knocked up Katherine Heigl. The top comedies of the 2000s came in the form of the ultra absurd; take a look at the montage scenes in Wet Hot American Summer as an example. 

Other possibilities for the funniest movies from the 2000s were indie packages, as was the case with Little Miss Sunshine. O Brother, Where Art Thou? and Eight Crazy Nights made millions laugh their butts off, as did comedy films like Elf and Meet The Parents. This list compiles those comedies that landed on the silver screens and changed the landscape for funny movies - some of which were overlooked at the time but have since gained dedicated audiences. Or, they made the list because they were just plain hilarious.

Be sure to vote up your favorites so other comedy fans know what to watch next and vote down the ones they should avoid.
