Gatsby 42;1633888 said:Actually, uncomfortable situations have been a tool of comedy almost since the beginning of filmed comedy in general. A lot of comedy classics like Airplane or The Three Stooges sure as hell utilize such material.
culturedog;1633931 said:Granted, Forgetting Sarah Marshall and Walk Hard both have the 'laugh at the naked man' gag, but Superbad killed me with dialogue. But yeah, the Apatow style isn't much for one-liners - it's more of a filthy Howard Hawks type of thing.
Gatsby 42;1633940 said:Yeah, you said uncomfortable situations and movies like Airplane, Caddy Shack and various other classics comedies aren't what you were describing them as. Saying that they're just one liner after one liner cheapens it. Superbad was a movie that was all one liners, Superbad along with nearly all sex comedies is terrible. Older comedies were just better written, that's all there is too it. With great comedic minds backing them they were able to construct these perfect situations, and with people like John Belushi and Rodney Dangerfield, they could deliver them with better comic timing and gusto than ever.
