I don't think that there is really a definitive answer to this but it has been my observation that it is much harder to make a good comedy film than it is to make a good drama. I can only think of a handful of really outstanding comedys. Big, Tootsie, Airplane, Play it again Sam, Mrs. Doubtfire, come to mind as outstanding. Beyond that I start to struggle to come up with what I would call a great comedy movie. On the other hand I can name dozens of great dramas off the top of my head. To me a great comedy is one that does not resort to bathroom humor or gratuitous sex and nudity just to get a laugh. Mind you, I am no prude, but I just don't think that bathroom humor or gratuitous sex and nudity make a film great. What are your thoughts. Do you agree that it is harder to make a great comedy than it is to make a great drama?
