Over the past few decades, there have been many controversial comedy films. In fact, that is what a lot of these movies are most known for. Perhaps the creators used controversy as a marketing ploy to get individuals to see the movie. After all, if a group of people tell us not to see a particular film, that only makes it more appealing to us. In a way, it is a clever use of reverse psychology.
Keep in mind, most of the controversial comedy movies on this list are considered to be satire. In other words, they are not meant to be taken seriously. However, that does not stop people from being offended by the slightest things. Another point that should be made is that old school movies that were considered controversial at the time would be very tame by today’s standards. On the flip side, while we do live in a more open-minded society, we are more sensitive than we have ever been. Not to mention, political correctness is very important in today’s world. In our current world, anything about race or religion has to be said in the most articulate way possible.
This list features a couple of creators and directors who managed to be on this list multiple times. Can you name them? They are actually pretty obvious. Some of these controversial comedy movies everyone knows, and some of these films might not be as popular. Without further ado, here are 10 of the most controversial comedy films ever made.
