Ranking the 25 Best Comedies of the 21st Century

25. Team America: World Police (2004)

Our first film comes to us via the creative duo responsible for South Park in Trey Parker and Matt Stone. Team America is a wild ride — there’s no other way to put it. As one can see from the promotional poster, the film utilized a form of puppets over actual people. Be honest — you’ve seen that gif over and over of a ‘puppet’ projectile vomiting. Well, that happened to come from this movie. There are some things which wouldn’t be appropriate today when it comes to film. With that said, we applaud Parker and Stone for taking a risk in making a major motion picture with puppetry.

24. Get Him to the Greek (2010)

Get ready for your Russell Brand fix. The eclectic and esoteric comedian-turned-actor was quite popular during the beginning of the 2010’s. Get Him to the Greek enabled Brand to portray a druggie rock star dealing with the reality of his career’s mortality. As Jonah Hill’s record label attempts to make Brand famous again (culminating in a major show), Hill has to safely get him from London to Los Angeles. Of course, things aren’t that easy — and Brand’s character Aldous Snow takes Hill for a wild ride. A quick shoutout must also go to Rose Byrne for playing Brand’s raunchy ex-girlfriend. She gave a terrific performance as Jackie Q.
