Hoekkie,

I suspect you would get a much better list of 2010-2019 comedies if you based it on these or similar searches:

Feature Film, Released between 2011-01-01 and 2019-12-31, Rating Count at least 20,000, Comedy, Not Drama (Sorted by IMDb Rating Descending)
https://www.imdb.com/search/title/?title_type=feature&release_date=2011-01-01,2019-12-31&num...

or

Feature Film, Released between 2011-01-01 and 2019-12-31, Rating Count at least 20,000, Comedy (Sorted by IMDb Rating Descending)
https://www.imdb.com/search/title/?title_type=feature&release_date=2011-01-01,2019-12-31&num...

= = =

Peter's suggestions Midnight in Paris (2011) appears in both searches. The Intouchables (2011) appears in the second search.

From point 0 to year 1 is called the 1st year.
The maths:
0-1 is year 1
1-2 is year 2
2-3 is year 3
3-4 is year 4
4-5 is year 5
5-6 is year 6
6-7 is year 7
7-8 is year 8
8-9 is year 9
9-10 is year 10
10-11 is year 1 from 2nd decade
So, 2010-2019 is correct in my opinion.

Elmo- Good to hear about the reviews, I was worried that this epic project came too late. Didn't they have to deage the actors with CGI? By the way, still working on the Disney option. I was busy but now I'm in a "once your reputation's gone, you can boldly carry on" mood.

Since almost all the decades ending poll are from year 0 to year 9,  I won't argue more.

None from your list, the only two I saw were terrible, and I have little interest in much of the rest as they also seem bad and unfunny.


Comedies that I did found funny are:


Isle of Dogs (2018)
The Death of Stalin (2017)
Er ist wieder da (2015)
Guardians fo the Galaxy (2014)
Intouchables (2011)
Scott Pilgrim vs. The World (2019

When I suggested Intouchables I believe there were a few other films with Drama listed. Currently there is one, PK, which I have not seen.

Because I ask for the funniest movie, I didn't add Intouchables in the first place. And I picked only movies that were made to laugh and with 'comedy' as the main genre.
But it turned out to be a list with many moderate/worse movies. 
I had my doubts with suggestions like Guardians of the Galaxy, Intouchables and Midnight in Paris. But, of course, it's arguable wheter the movie is mostly funny or not. For me, these movies didn't made me laugh so much. That may vary by person so I decided to add these movies.

I think we can agree that a movie meant as a drama comedy doesn't have the pretension to be one of the funniest, if that was the case, they would replace the dramatic moments by simply more comedy. 

I totally agreed with what you said and I think there's a difference between a fine story with a few funny or hilarious moments and "one of the funniest movies".
