More proof that virtue signaling by calling half your potential audience racist homophobic Nazi's for disagreeing with Obama or voting for Trump is not a good business model. Plus a lot of comedy is getting people to laugh at themselves and lefties are too scared to joke about anything but white straight males because a mob of crazed SJW weirdos will attack and destroy them for wrong think.

Look at the tone and attitude of each of the top-grossing comedies listed. They either ridicule American culture or virtue signal race and sex. It's not comedy that's on the out, it's left-wing ideology.

They will come up with every reason except THE reason; we're tired of cynical, anti-Western-civilization, anti-capitalism, anti-American movies where the good guy is actually the bad guy and tortured and stupid besides.

Fuck you.

We're tired of being preached whatever social-justice sermon happens to be in vogue among the sick, ruined, pretty people of Hollywood.

Fuck you.

We reject them.

Feelings and all killed Comedy. Fake Hate Speech. Making Fun of EVERYBODY is FUNNY LOSERS.

"But the critically acclaimed coming-of-age comedy Booksmart (from United Artists and Annapurna) also disappointed, opening May 24 to a tepid $6.9 million despite a 97 percent positive rating on Rotten Tomatoes."

Buuut Rotten Tomatoes posts effectively random numbers now because it's manipulating the market - ESAD, Hollywood

It's not freaking rocket science! It's the political correctness that has ruined comedy in almost every medium. #WakeUp

"It's been a decade since any comedy launched a blockbuster franchise. " And even longer since a comedy actually showed wit and were allowed to go blockbuster. See Blazing Saddles as the gold standard on how it is done..
