I'm telling you, the last new comedy movie that I have seen is Borat, and the one before that was Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, but after that one was There's Something About Mary.

I wouldn't really call KKBB a 'comedy'. Sure it had comedic moments, but it's not an out-and-out comedy.

The problem with asking for opinions on comedy is that comedy is much more personal taste than any other genre.  Personally, I hate almost all comedy produced today.  There's a few exception, but the more I see, the more I'm convinced that these are exceptions.  I wish comedy would swing away from gross out humor.
