The top 10 deceptively dark comedies

The top 10 deceptively dark comedies. By Simon Miraudo.

If the trailer for Bachelorette is to be believed, it’s a raucous comedy in the vein of Bridesmaids and Sex and the City. When you actually see the thing – what with its references to suicide, abortion, bulimia, and the general downbeat vibe – you might feel a little cheated by the advertisements. The film is certainly meant to be funny, but clearly the powers that be were frightened enough by its bleaker aspects to hide them from potential viewers. In honour of this bait-and-switch, we’re sharing our picks for the top 10 deceptively dark comedies; movies that were perhaps sold as comedies to mask the darkness within, or beloved gut-busters that, when you actually think about it, are super depressing. Come for the laughs; stay for the tears!

  1. Some obscure gems in this top 10. Great to see MASH in there along with His Girl Friday. You’re so right about In Bruges; the publicity for it was most misleading but the film was great all the same.
