THE LAUGHTER DIES
Is there anything more depressing than a comedy without laughs? The echoing silence in a movie theatre when joke after desperate joke belly-flops? The movies in this category run the gamut from high-concept star vehicles (Mr.Wrong) and tasteless juvenalia (Freddy Got Fingered) to the merely brain-dead (Drowning Mona). You won't find a single honest laugh in the whole bunch, just a mere handful of disheartening chuckles. Or, you can laugh so as not to cry.
