Comedy Duos: Which Platonic Pair Has No Peer?




Posted by K.C. Morgan Categories: Comedy, Casting,

Role Models

Seth Rogen and James Franco made a huge splash with , Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly are bona fide box office gold and now Sean William Scott and Paul Rudd are joining the fray with a comedy of their own. There’s something magical about a non-romantic funny duo…or at least, they can be money-making magic for the film studios. But out of all these pairs we’ve seen grace the screen, which twosome stands out most?

Which comedians make up the funniest on-screen comedy duo (last two decades only)?

Adam Sandler and Rob Schneider: Though their interactions are often limited to a few scenes at best, Schneider is present in almost every single Sandler movie, and for good reason. The two have an obvious comedic chemistry which somehow always works in every single setting.

Cheech and Chong: Cheech Marin and Tommy Chong showed up in the seventies, and they’ve been making us laugh ever since. After eleven comedic albums and ten feature-length films, the pair had a public falling out. Thankfully, they’ve been reunited again and are reportedly hard at work on a future movie project. Known mainly for marijuana- and other drug-related humor, Cheech and Chong seem to personify the stereotype of “stoners” - and we love them for it. We roll in the aisles because of it.

David Spade and Chris Farley: Opposites are attracting to audiences, especially when you pair a lovable teddy bear (Farley) with a smart-aleck little guy (Spade). They only made two movies together - Tommy Boy and Black Sheep - but both films remain two of the funniest Hollywood’s ever produced. Sadly, Farley’s life was cut short at the age of thirty-three, or this pair might have gone to make many more flicks together.

Dana Carvey and Mike Myers: It’s true this duo only did two movies together, but before rocketed into comedy-movie platinum status he played leading man to Carvey’s classic sidekick role. For a brief time in the 90s, Wayne’s World came to life…and it was funny for us all. At one time, there were rumors of a possible Wayne’s World 3 film in the works, but this gossip has not been confirmed.

Trey Parker and Matt Stone

Trey Parker and Matt Stone: These two men are more often heard than seen, but they would receive a spot in this list even without . This pair, the minds behind That’s My Bush! and Team America: World Police among many other projects, can best be observed together in BASEketball - a classic comedy sports film if there ever was one. I believe they are comedic geniuses and that no two men could ever be funnier together, making Trey Parker and Matt Stone the greatest comedy duo of the last twenty years.

I already made a thread about this on the next page, haha, but oh well. I'm wanting to see Wanted and Wall-E. They're the only movies I can think of right now that I would love to see and Dark Knight is a possibility too if I do have the time. I think they're all great movies to just sit back and relax and watch them. I hope they all do fantastic at the box office and well, they're the summer movies I'm anticipating. ;)

I didn't see anything on the first page so I assumed there wasn't one since it would be a hot topic!. I actually have heard Wall-E is supposed to be amazing. It does look quite interesting. Cute little robot heh.

I want to see wall-e also. I think it would be a cute movie, I think in a way it will remind me of short circuit, Johnny five..lol. What is wanted about? The title sounds interesting.

That's all I got from the commercials.

Oh yes I remember the previews of that now just didnt know the name but when you were saying about what it was about I remembered. Yeah I think it would be a good movie, I really dont care whose in it its how they act that makes a good movie to me. And a good story line helps it along. It did look like it would be an exciting movie to watch alot of action.

Wow, Wall-E got 5 stars out of 5 stars when I was reading the newspaper this morning. Of course, we shouldn't go with just one reviewer's review, but I think Wall-E is going to be a fantastic film and there are a lot of positive reviews. I can't wait to go watch it, the plot and story and just everything is just so cute and terrific!

With it having great reviews this will be one I will definately will go and see. I think it will be a cute movie. Good thing that we dont have to go with just one review now...lol, now not all of them can be wrong about the movie. I like movies like that anyway.

Thanks for the information gohan_bcc1! I always try to go to Rotten Tomatoes and check out their rating...I don't know why I do that though, haha. Also, I think watching trailers is something I want to catch up on when I get the chance, there are many movies coming out this summer and some I haven't really heard about. I don't know when I'll be watching Wall-E but I hope I'll be able to watch it soon.

Anyone end up watching Wanted or Wall-E this weekend!?
