What is the secret hidden in Neighbors 2 with Chloe Grace-Moretz that we never realized? 10 Comedy Movies That Are Actually Smarter Than You Realized! Subscribe to our channel : http://goo.gl/ho3Hg6

Some comedy movies are just plain dumb fun, and that’s okay! It can be nice to just relax and watch a film without having to think too much about the filmmaker’s larger implications. But sometimes, a film comes along that actually satisfies both types of viewers: those who want to watch a lowest-common-denominator laugh fest, and those who are looking for thoughtful social commentary. In this video, we’ll be looking at some of those rare films that are actually much smarter than people give them credit for. Whether it’s Zac Efron and Seth Rogen up against a group of sorority sisters, the foul-mouthed kids in Trey Parker and Matt Stone’s South Park, or Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum kicking butt in 21 Jump Street, all of these films feature plenty of slapstick fun and genuine humour – but they also have something meaningful to say about societal issues.

Some of these films comment on race and class, like Tropic Thunder and Sacha Baron Cohen’s legendarily controversial Borat. Some of these focus on feminism, like Mean Girls and even Neighbors 2. Ben Stiller graces our list more than one time and we’ll also look at a few films featuring Saturday Night Live alumni! You may not agree that all of these films are truly intelligent, but hopefully we make a reasonable case! So sit back and enjoy and be sure to like the video and subscribe to Screen Rant on YouTube if you want to see more awesome videos like this one!
