Top Ten Comedies: 2000
The comedy movie is considered one that will make you laugh a little or have you roaring with laughter. Some movies are very funny while others are only merely funny by tradition standards. As I searched for all comedy movies made between the year 2000 and 2009 I was overwhelmed by the sheer number of comedy movies, so I began to search by individual years. I was able to pick out ten best comedy movies for each year. My favorite types of movies in order are comedies, action, and drama's, then horror.
My comedy top ten lists cover the following years:
Dude Where’s My Car

They both got tattoos and they seemed to have lost their car. Naturally, the best way to remember what happened is to retrace their steps.

The also have a run-in with an angry street gang, a cult of alien seeking fanatics, and a group of aliens in human form.
