Just because the movie makes you laugh doesn’t mean it is everyone He laughs. A good movie needs a memorable antagonist, and there are some comedies that really swing for the fences when it comes to evil. Of course, that ends up making the inevitable outcome more satisfying.

From Steven Spielberg-produced classics to modern political satire, this is the comedy that features a villain who could only be described as tough on a good day. They don’t have to be Just Comedies, some of them are in the blender genre, but all of these movies have an antagonist that will scare kids and adults alike.

10 Mama Fratelli in The Goonies (1985)

Warner Bros.

Richard Donner fools It is one of the more Steven Spielberg films not actually directed by Spielberg, although he did have the lead in the role of producer. Like shady government figures in any. t. extra terrestrial3D of Jake, Frances and Mama Fratelli is frightening regardless of the viewer’s age.

For example, Joe Pantoliano and Robert Davey are great in villainous roles, as is Pantoliano in matrix and davey in License to killand their work there fools No exception. But it was Anne Ramsey who stole the show as the matriarch of the crime family. They’re not very nice people, but they sure are perfect villains for a treasure hunt movie.

9 Judge Doom in Who Framed Roger Rabbit (1988)

Pioneer in mixing animation with live action, Robert Zemeckis Who framed Roger Rabbit? It is a classic with multi-demographic appeal. It also features Christopher Lloyd in his best role out Back to the future or Taxi.

Judge Doom is considered the most feared presence in Toontown, especially by accused murderer Roger Rabbit, and it turns out the reason he wants the titular character so badly isn’t to abolish justice and win his pay. Instead, it is not Dom himself who is the man behind the murder, much less a man at all. Instead, it’s Toon, and that reveal scene could well bear the title of the scariest movie in a family misrepresentation. With a squeaky voice and boots that allow him to leap across a room, the Toon beneath Judge Doom is the circling kind of evil.

8 Beetlejuice in Beetlejuice (1988)

Pictures Warner Bros

If ever there was a Tim Burton movie that felt like a shot out of his brain, this is it Beetlejuice. The titular character is a goofy, one-of-a-kind creation that it seems only Burton and Michael Keaton could bring to life, but it’s not the only scary thing about the film, as there are also shrunken heads and sandworms.

But Beetlejuice is just an outright creep. The way he tries to dress up Winona Ryder’s Lydia Deetz is about as big a sign as one can get that he’s not the kind to hang out with. He’s a con, a con artist out to defeat newly unconvinced people about their element and sandworm his way into their lives.

7 Harry and Xenia Wormwood in Matilda (1996)

Danny DeVito in Matilda
Tristar Pictures

Almost certainly the best movie Danny DeVito has ever directed, Matilda Roald Dahl is properly adapted. It’s also a movie filled with legitimately intimidating antagonists, the most famous of which is Pam Ferris’ spirited teacher Miss Trunchbull.

But arguably the biggest monsters, DeVito and his real-life wife Rhea Perlman are Matilda’s parents: Harry and Xenia Wormwood. Harry is a used car salesman who stocks not so many used cars as broken-down cars made partly from stolen parts. Meanwhile, Xenia is an obsessed TV fanatic with an abusive personality and not a care in the world. They’re like Petunia and Vernon Dursley, but if only Harry Potter was their real flesh-and-blood child. That’s very cool.

of the funniest virtuous films, Zoolander He played a major role in making Will Ferrell a movie star. But his role in Zoolander It is more of a supportive capacity, which is ultimately a good thing. Failed fashion designer Mugato is so extreme he is best in small doses. But, if taken in small doses (as the first Zoolander does), this party is absolutely hilarious.

But Mugato is also unstable. His angry, boastful rant about creating a piano key tie betrays feelings of resentment towards him and the world around him. So he’s not the type to have a lot of power or wealth, let alone the ability to hypnotize people into loyal killers.

5 Kim Jong Il in Team America: World Police (2004)

from South ParkTrey Parker and Matt Stone came in hard-R Team America: Global Police, which is hysterical. But it’s also categorically not for everyone, and it wasn’t far from being Kim Jong-il’s favorite movie. In fact, he is shown to be a cockroach from outer space as if he was one of the villains in it Godzilla vs. Gigan.

But, like the real Jong Il and Kim Jong Un, the singing doll who wears movie glasses is also a ruthless dictator. When he’s on screen, any puppets standing around him don’t feel safe, regardless of loyalty. This is especially true when there is a shark tank behind his desk.

4 Simon Skinner in Hot Fuzz (2007)

The second installment of Edgar Wright’s Cornetto trilogy The Three Flavors, hot fluffjust as solid as the movie that came before it: Shaun the dead. It also has a memorable villain, but it’s easy to top the undead in the personality department.

Specifically, there’s the Neighborhood Watch Alliance (NWA) and its leader, Inspector Frank Butterman (Jim Broadbent). They strive to keep their city “clean” to win the “Village of the Year” award. But Butterman isn’t the most terrifying member of the misguided peace-seeking gang, he’s Simon Skinner, James Bond actor, Timothy Dalton’s grocery store owner. With a sinister grin and piercing eyes, he’s a suspect from the moment he enters frame, yet the film continually throws lonely balls at the audience in an effort to get rid of his scent. But he’s part of it, he and his huge employee “Lurch” (game of thronesRory McCann).

3 Lee Grossman in Tropic Thunder (2008)

Ben Stiller Tropical thunder is one of the entertainment industry’s greatest satires, but even considering its relatively recent production history, there’s little chance it could be made the same way now. But the cast is definitely having fun, including Tom Cruise as Les Grossman as the CEO at the rageaholic studio.

Grossman isn’t technically the movie’s villain, but he’s the last person you’d want to be in a room with. Makes sense, considering it was primarily based on now-famous film producers Scott Rudin and Harvey Weinstein. With that being said, Grossman does have his downsides. For example, he is a great dancer. Second, he’s very eloquent, even if it’s while telling you to fuck your face. At the very least, this is the closest Cruise has come to playing a villain outside of Michael Mann’s dark and fantastic setting. sideways.

2 Harry in Bruges (2008)

Martin McDonagh in Bruges It signals the arrival of one of cinema’s new great directors, which is at least partly due to how the characters are written. Everything in the movie has a payoff, including Harry Waters’ (Ralph Fiennes) promise that if he accidentally kills a child like Ray did to Colin Farrell, he will commit suicide.

One of Farrell’s best movies just as it is one of Brendan Gleeson’s, in Bruges As devastating as comics can get, this is just another card in her deck, not a color distraction. And as in Harry Potter Franchise, Fiennes is about as spot on a villain as a studio or director could get. The appeal to the master of his murderer Waters (but not so much) is often collected always-collected), and the nature of a well-dressed everyman, making every one of his scenes continually force the audience to guess three times what he’s thinking or what he’s going to do.

1 Kim Jong-un in the interview (2014)

Park Interview 2014 Columbia

One of the most controversial films to come out of the studio system in quite some time, Evan Goldberg and Seth Rogen is fairly harmless the interview It nevertheless infuriated Kim Jong-un, but that was always the case. Speaking of Jong-un, Randall Park is exceptional in the role, selling bonding moments in the script with James Franco’s David Skylark as well as the intimidation factor.

Like his father before him (even the one seen in Team America: Global Police), this Jong-un is a sadistic dictator and pop culture enthusiast who has no qualms about abusing his power. The movie does a great job of establishing an organic friendship, one that Jong-un can angrily turn his back on. And that’s exactly what he does (and what he’s been known to do in real life, violently, including towards his family members). But, unlike in reality, the movie version of Jong-un is met with a missile while hanging his head on the side of a helicopter. Of course, while Katy Perry’s “Fireworks” sparkles on the movie’s soundtrack.
