8 Controversial Comedies That Could Never Get Made Today

There are hours of online conversations about how hit shows like The Office and Friends wouldn't be created and aired new today, but what about the movies?

Redditor u/AlexLekleklek asked, “I'm looking for movies that contain humor that wouldn't be made today due to their offensive jokes but still are hilarious.” And Redditors responded with their top offensive, but said, hilarious picks.

Redditor tolive8 agreed, “You couldn't make that film today. The actors would look at the script and say “we can't do this. They already made it, it's called blazing saddles and it came out in 1974”.

Blazing Saddles (1974)

Two disgraced FBI agents (Shawn and Marlon Wayans) go way undercover to protect hotel heiress, the Wilson sisters (Anne Dudek and Faune A. Chambers), from a kidnapping plot. The Wayans paint themselves as White, and the film includes many racial stereotypes.

White Chicks (2004)

Redditor Lysandria admits, “I saw this when I was pretty young, and I remember it as the first movie that made me laugh until I cried, in particular the bit at the end where this guy is talking to a woman and keeps knocking stuff off a table as he's trying to clean it up.

The Gods Must Be Crazy (1980)

It features a controversial scene, where one of the nerds puts on a Darth Vader mask to trick his sorority crush, and they have sex under false pretenses because she believes it's her jock boyfriend in the mask.

Revenge of the Nerds (1984)

Redditor Dara_Dark agreed, “Definitely! Also, the sequel Ace Ventura: When Nature Calls.”

Ace Ventura: Pet Detective (1994)

While some fans quoted lines from both films, one user asked why the second film was offensive. To which Redditor amergent replied, “African stereotypes, Asian stereotypes, need I continue?”
