I'm not really a fan of the big tent pole films everyone else loves, but looking back, it was an absolutely AMAZING year for comedy films.
STEP BROTHERS. PINEAPPLE EXPRESS. ZOHAN. BURN AFTER READING. TROPIC THUNDER. SEX DRIVE. SOUL MEN. BE KIND REWIND. SARAH MARSHALL. ROLE MODELS. THE WACKNESS. RUN FATBOY RUN. FOOT FIST WAY. SON OF RAMBOW(?). IN BRUGES(?).There's some alltimers for me in that mix.
The movie that was my favorite at the time was THE WRESTLER, but I haven't revisited since.
Overall, for me, a comedown from '07, but if I liked DARK NIGHT or Pixar's stuff, maybe i'd feel differently.
What say you?
