The 10 Best Comedy Movie Villains of the 2010s

The comedy film genre slowly faded away throughout the 2010s. While star-studded comedies like dirty grandpa and Holmes and Watson were universally panned by critics, audiences began to look for humor elsewhere in comic book actors like dead Pool and guardians of the galaxy. But as long as there are talented filmmakers, there will always be hilarious comedies.

Even if the genre is dead like a death, gems like Bridesmaids and It is the end stood out and became hits. The decade introduced movie-going audiences to comedic villains like Boris the Animal, a douche named Douche, and a possessed Jonah Hill.

ten Boris the Animal (Men In Black 3)

After the first sequel men in black was criticized for sticking to familiar gags and plot lines, the threequel shook things up with a time travel storyline, featuring Josh Brolin as young Agent K alongside returning Agent J by Will Smith.

Jemaine Clement gives a terrific performance as the big bad of Men in Black 3, a hammy evil villain pulled straight from a classic pulpy sci-fi story. Boris the Animal escapes from space prison and sets out to exact revenge on the MIB, forcing J to return to the 1960s and meddle in the Apollo 11 mission.

9 Jonah Hill (This is the end)

Owned Jonah Hill This is the end

Everyone at Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg It is the end have fun playing an exaggerated version of themselves. Hot on the heels of his first Oscar nomination, Jonah Hill relished the opportunity to play a satirical portrayal of himself as a pretentious, self-absorbed comedian.

Jonah turns out to be a villain halfway through when he prays for Jay to die. This sinful behavior makes Jonah possessed by a demon, raising the stakes considerably for the final act with parodies of both. Rosemary’s baby and The Exorcist.


8 Lord Business / The Top Man (The Lego Movie)

Lord Business in the LEGO Movie

When Phil Lord and Christopher Miller signed on to direct a Lego movie, audiences expected it to be a feature toy commercial. The Lego Movie is surprisingly much deeper than that, digging into the creativity that Lego toys inspire and the parents who discourage that creativity.

Will Ferrell’s tyrannical villain Lord Business, a corporate overlord who wants everyone in Bricksburg to comply, turns out to be a metaphorical stand-in for “The Man Upstairs,” the father of the child featured in the segment. live action film. He wants to glue the Legos together to hold them in place, stifling his son’s imagination.

seven Phoenix Buchanan (Paddington 2)

Hugh Grant Paddington 2

The second Paddington The film met with the same level of universal critical acclaim as its predecessor. The sequel tells an all-new story: a mystery revolving around a pop-up book the titular bear buys as a gift.

Hugh Grant gives a delightfully eccentric spin as the villainous Phoenix Buchanan, a narcissistic actor with a diabolical plan to become rich and famous.

6 Lotto (Toy Story 3)

Voiced by the legendary Ned Beatty, Toy Story 3Lotso’s villain manages to be genuinely menacing despite being a fluffy pink teddy bear. He first comes across as friendly, but Beatty nails the character’s sinister turn.

Lotso may seem silly, but his actions are horrible. At the dump, right after Woody and Buzz put aside their differences with Lotso to save him, he leaves them to die.

5 Billy Bickle (Seven Psychopaths)

Martin McDonagh’s second feature film Seven Psychopaths play like Adaptation directed by Quentin Tarantino. It’s a conscious satire of a screenwriter named after the film’s own screenwriter who gets dragged into his own story – but that story has guns, explosions, and dognappings.

Sam Rockwell plays Billy Bickle, Marty’s actor friend who turns out to have a psychotic streak. In the second half of the movie, Billy commits heinous crimes just to give Marty’s storyline a fun ending.

4 Pat Farrell (Alan Partridge: Alpha Dad)

Alan and Pat on a radio bus in Alan Partridge Alpha Papa

Since Alan Partridge was designed as a parody of sportscasters, a movie about the character shouldn’t work – let alone a riff on die hard involving the armed headquarters of a radio station – but Alan PartridgeAlpha Dad is a triumph.

Colm Meaney makes a hilarious deadpan flick for Alan as the film’s villain, Pat Farrell. Pat has a sympathetic motivation for the armed takeover: he’s both a grieving widow and a disgruntled ex-employee.

3 Shower (sausage party)

Supermarket shower in Sausage Party

Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg’s raunchy, R-rated riff on Pixar’s anthropomorphization of mundane objects – 2016 sausage party – is surprisingly existential. Food is alive and capable of complex thought. They believe in “The Great Beyond” where they will gain salvation, and find they have been lied to and the only fate awaiting them is to be eaten by humans.

The characterization of the villain is hilarious on the nose: he’s an asshole named Douche and he’s played by the guy who played “The Douche” on Parks and recreation. Thanks to Big mouth, Nick Kroll is one of the most popular voice actors in the world today.

2 The Manson Family (Once Upon a Time in Hollywood)

Once Upon a Time in Hollywood The Manson Family

After Adolf Hitler and the white slavers, the last real-life historical villain Quentin Tarantino has dealt with in brutal cinematic reprisal is the Manson family. Once upon a time in HollywoodThe mid-act Spahn Ranch sequence is eerie, unsettling, and creates an undeserved mystique around the Manson cult.

Then, in the darkly comedic finale, this mystique is hilariously deflated. The Manson family members who murdered Sharon Tate go to the place next door, where an acid-riding ex-military stuntman, his vicious attack dog and a gun-toting TV cowboy wield flames are waiting to take them all to a triumphant bloodbath.

1 Helen Harris III (bridesmaids)

Rose Byrne gives one of Paul Feig’s finest performances Bridesmaids as Helen Harris III, the rival wealthy bridesmaid who rushes in and usurps Kristen Wiig’s Annie.

A simple comedian would have just pored over Helen’s hysterically detestable elitism. Byrne has the comedic chops to squeeze every possible laugh out of Helen’s personality flaws, but she also has the dramatic abilities to humanize her and bring out her vulnerabilities.
