I am starting to wonder if I have the same sense of humor as “everyone else.” “Everyone” told me that Little Miss Sunshine was the funniest movie they had seen in a long time. So I watched it. I honestly don’t know if I laughed once (note: this is not to say that it was a bad movie, I just didn’t find it to be a comedy). Then, “they” said, “Watch Knocked Up. You will love Knocked Up.” So I did. And while I found it to be funnier than Little Miss Sunshine (though by far not as good of a movie), I was left wanting. Last summer, when Bridesmaids came out, “everyone” again started yakking about how this was the movie to see—the comedy to end all comedies. Heck, I almost went to see it in the theaters because I wanted to not only see a funny movie, but see one with female leads (because, hey, girls can be hilarious too, ya know?).
