We’re starting our Hitmen in Love series on PopD Sunday night at 7PM ET with Diana Rigg and Oliver Reed in The Assassination Bureau, but let’s face it, love stories about hitmen are just romantic comedies with extra blood and violence. So we thought for the series after that, starting in April, we’d do a little romcom antidote and go for a series of Guy Comedies:
Guy Comedy is comedy written by guys for guys in a guy POV full of stuff that guys find funny. Guy Comedy doesn’t care how low or ridiculous it goes to make you laugh, or how many marginalized women it uses to accessorize the story, so leave your taste, maturity, and feminism at the door. This is Guy Land.
Both Dodgeball and Hot Tub Time Machine are non-negotiable: they’re goin’ on the list. But after that we went through several ideas, and I did an internet search, and we ended up . . . not sure. At all. So of course, we turn to the Argh People again, forgiving you for having voted for The Holiday for the first series. (What were you thinking?)
Zombies and other monsters are out because that’s horror or sf, but otherwise we’re open. What dumb guy comedies would you add to this list? And what movies do you think MUST be on the list?
Hot Tub Time Machine
Plus three others:
Weekend at Bernies
Warning: if this gets too confusing, there’s gonna be another poll.
