DIFFERENT TYPES OF COMEDY MOVIES
With the exception of black comedy, humour plays a vital role in most of the comedy films in which it has a happy ending. Comedy is one of the oldest genres. Due to their popularity, many stand-up comedians turned to movies. Comedy movies are made only to entertain the people. The sole purpose is to entertain the audience. The witty dialogues are more important than the story script. The characters in a particular story confronting an unusual situation which makes everyone laugh. Such events and situations may arise, for instance, changing the age role in the movie Big (1988); exchange of gender roles in Tootsies (1982) and so on.
Black comedy movies satirises suicide, murder and death which are considered to be the prohibited subjects. For example, kind hearts and Coronets (1949) and Ladykillers (1955).
There is a romantic relationship revolves between man and woman in romantic comedy movies. The sexual tensions and social interactions between the couple are shown in the light-hearted romantic comedies. Some examples for this kind of movies include Sabrina (1954); Pretty Woman (1990); The shop around the corner (1940) and so on.
Sexual and toilet humour are shown in gross-out movies. For instance, American Pie (1999) and There’s Something About Mary (1988).
Clash of context is a very good example of a true and tried comedy script. If something happens unexpected and is what makes us by surprise and makes us laugh for a while. By taking something from somewhere and if we misplace the particular thing where it does not belongs to is an advantage of the clash of context.
