The scene was not unlike 12 Angry Men (or, in this case, 3 Shlubby Men, 1 Exasperated Woman, And A Dude On Speaker Phone From Arkansas): Armed with lists of their favorite movies of the decade, the five core A.V. Club film writers spent days sequestered in a stuffy, un-air-conditioned room—okay, it was actually just a few hours, and we were comfortable—in an effort to forge consensus on the Top 50 films of the ’00s. The result: A ranked list that is in no way arbitrary and will serve as the canonical standard for decades to come. You’re welcome.
After tens of thousands of votes, 14 cracked ribs and seven split sides, we have assembled the very funniest films ever made – according to you, the Empire readers. Here are the films to make you howl with laughter, the films that give your funny bone a workout and prove the best medicine for what ails you. Read it and weep.
