Comedy in movies getting worse and this film proves it
20 April 2016 | by See all my reviews

TV shows: Almost every year you see a new clever comedy show like Scrubs, Simpsons, Big Bang Theory, Southpark, Malcolm in the Middle, ... You don't have to like it, but at least acknowledge that it is very clever and well written.

With movies on the other side it's a different story. Here the trend is that it is getting worse and worse. We are almost at a point where we were in the 80's.

The problem: The movies make money and as long as this is happening we will see movies like "The Boss" in the future. Or another theory - I'm getting to old for this kind of movies.
