Top Ten Box Office Comedy Films for 2011

Guest Author - Secola Edwards

The year 2011 proved to be a successful one for the comedic film genre, with the top ten grossing titles all capturing the coveted one-hundred million dollar mark at the box office. Ticket sales for the top ten draws brought in more than $2 billion dollars to domestic movie theaters.

The Hangover Part II, the 2011 sequel to the 2009 blockbuster, was the top grossing US comedy film of the year, earning over $254 million at the box office. It scored a total gross (including international sales) of $327 million.

Bridesmaids was the 2011 summer hit surprise. The wedding-themed comedy featuring a female dominated cast earned second place at the box office. Bridesmaids garnered just over $169 million dollars domestically and $119 million world-wide, totaling $288 million. The production budget was $32 million. Bridesmaids was one of 3 Rated R comedies high grossing films; Hangover Part II and Horrible Bosses are the others.

Lightning McQueen rode into theaters during the summer of 2011 and Cars 2 amassed a total of $191 million in US ticket sales. The follow up to the 2006 Disney/Pixar smash earned a worldwide total of $485 million dollars. While the total gross (including international) for Cars 2 beat the original film, the domestic box office fell way short of Cars' $244 million haul.

Jack Black reprised his role of Po in Kung Fu Panda 2, which earned $165 million in the US and over a half-billion dollars total, once international numbers are added in. Kung Fu Panda and Smurfs are the only 2 comedies in 2011 to gross more than $500 million dollars. Kung Fu Panda is also one of three sequels in the top ten for comedies (Cars 2 and Hangover II).

The remaining films round out the top ten list for domestic highest grossing comedy films.

Puss in Boots: $146 million, $280 million international

Rio: $144 million, $341 million international

Smurfs: $143 million, $420 million international

Rango: $123 million, $122 international

Horrible Bosses: $118 million, $92 million international

Hop: $108 million, $76 million international
