Comedy is so much harder than drama, which is especially amazing that it was such a fantastic year for funny films in 2014. 

But, what are the best of the bodaciously hilarious? 

The comedy superstars are all well represented on this list from Seth Rogen to Paul Rudd to even the UK's Nick Frost. 

Will your favorites make our list? 

Click through and discover our top 14 comedies of 2014.

14. This Is Where I Leave You

This Is Where I Leave You
Jason Bateman and Tina Fey headline as siblings in a family comedy and already you have our attention. Toss in Jane Fonda as an overbearing mother and a cast that also includes Adam Driver, Rose Byrne, Corey Stoll, Kathryn Hahn and Dax Shepard and we're sure you have a winner. What if we told you it was also about a family gathering for their patriarch's funeral and they have to honor his dying wish that they sit for the Jewish mourning ceremony (which involves a week of sitting at home together)... even though they're not Jewish! Oh, and Ben Schwartz plays a Rabbi whose childhood nickname is Boner. Yeah, it's a winner in the comedy department that also has heaps of heart.

13. Let’s Be Cops

Let’s Be Cops
We will not apologize for our love of Let’s Be Cops. Damon Wayans, Jr. and Jake Johnson have magical comedic chemistry on New Girl and that explodes exponentially in this comedy that features them dressing up as cops for a costume party and realizing that walking the streets they get more respect than they do in their regular life. Then, there’s the whole “crack the case” element of the story that involves a real cop -- played with comic deadpan by Rob Riggle -- and this thing adds up to a whole lot of fun.

12. A Million Ways to Die in the West

A Million Ways to Die in the West
Sure, A Million Ways to Die in the West is nowhere near as funny as Seth MacFarlane’s first film, Ted. But, then again, what could be? But what A Million Ways to Die in the West is is a 90-minute joke that works for us about how horrible things were for settlers in the Old West. I mean, people die at the fair! Neil Patrick Harris runs a Mustachery?! That’s just a sample of the hilarity of MacFarlane heading out west.

11. They Came Together

They Came Together
Paul Rudd and Amy Poehler in a pitch perfect parody of rom-coms. Yeah, that. We’re guessing you didn’t see it because it was so under the radar, so as you crave a break from all that end-of-the-year craziness, seek this flick out and prepare to laugh at all the cliches that normally make you swoon.

10. About Last Night

About Last Night
Right off the bat we have to say that About Last Night had no right being as funny and heartwarming as it was. Who thought we needed a remake of the '80s classic starring Demi Moore and Rob Lowe as a couple trying to turn a one night stand into a full blown relationship? But, it worked and had us laughing something fierce. And the reason for that is largely the comic dream team that is Kevin Hart and Regina Hall as that couple trying to make a relationship work that is solely based on sex. Those two should be the comedy couple in every movie. Period.

9. Cuban Fury

Cuban Fury
Nick Frost busts a move away from his comedy good buddy Simon Pegg and scores hugely with this film about a teenage ballroom dancer who left it all behind when the teasing of peers became too much. Now, decades later, he’s a schlub working a job that he couldn't care less about and living a solo life that doesn’t include much in the way of light. When an American (Rashida Jones) arrives in his office and her love of salsa dancing becomes evident, he dives back into that world and hilarity (and a whole lot of heart) ensues.
