As you know, we’re starting our Hitmen in Love series on PopD, but let’s face it, love stories about hitmen are just romantic comedies with extra blood and violence. So we thought for the series after that, starting in April, we’d do a little romcom antidote and go for a series of Guy Comedies:
Guy Comedy is comedy written by guys for guys in a guy POV full of stuff that guys find funny. Guy Comedy doesn’t care how low or ridiculous it goes to make you laugh, or how many marginalized women it uses to accessorize the story, so leave your taste, maturity, and feminism at the door. This is Guy Land.
Both Dodgeball and Hot Tub Time Machine are non-negotiable: they’re goin’ on the list. But after that we went through several ideas, and I did an internet search, and we ended up . . . not sure. So over to you: what dumb guy comedies would you add to this list? And what movies do you think MUST be on the list?
The Big Lebowski
Hot Tub Time Machine
Weekend at Bernies
Lani and I will pick six that are available on Netflix, streaming if possible, in hope of avoiding The Assassination Bureau debacle again, so this isn’t a vote. But since you’re the ones watching with us, your opinion counts heavily.
