    I could give several examples...

    Wedding Crashers was over contrast-y to the point of being bloomed-out.

    Meet the Fockers was soft.

    Dukes of Hazzard was a muddy, reddish mess (with occasional shimmer!).

    Even 40 Year Old Virgin was just OK.

    I'm starting to dread putting on new comedies, as action and drama seem to get more A/V respect.

    I dread putting them on as well, but for completely different reasons.

    Why do newer comedies get such poor scripts?

    It's unfortunate as I've noticed this too. My best guess is they think it doesn't matter since people aren't buying it for A/V (compared to a sci-fi or action movie, for example).
