"Oh yeah, I forgot, you haven't laughed since the '60s."
Comedy may often look easy, but line up the growing number of big-screen comedy misfires and its clear that it isn't. In fact, recent evidence suggests that its harder to get audiences to laugh than it is to get them to enjoy, say, a 3-D visual spectacle or a potentially scary thriller.
Take next month's Big Wedding, for instance. Despite a cast that includes Susan Sarandon, Diane Keaton, Robin Williams, Topher Grace and Robert De Niro, we couldn't find much to like in the movie's first trailer, but now another trailer has arrived in hopes of impressing audiences. watch the trailer >>
