The 10 Funniest Comedies of the Past Decade

The Hangover was the surprise hit of 2009, taking three relatively unknown actors and turning them into some of the biggest stars of today.

These are the most iconic, heavily quoted (and misquoted) lines of some of most gnarly movies you’ll ever see. 1. Hello. My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die.- […]
