Honorable Mention

Zack And Miri Make A Porno – Imagine an Apatow flick made by Kevin Smith and here’s what you get. Not bad at all, and it contains Justin long’s hilarious cameo as a gay porn star.


Step-Brothers – Talledega Nights team Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly reunite, under one roof this time, as two developmentally stunted men whose parents get married. There had to be some laughs in this one, and there are.


Nick And Nora’s Infinite Playlist – Michael Cera and Kat Dennings are capable leads in this comedy of young music scene hipsters. Ari Graynor steals the show as Nora’s drunken, promiscuous friend.


Those are the brightest stars in 2008’s vast comedy sky. If you’ve got a different view, let us know.
