There are tons of hilarious Black movies. They’ve made three of the Barbershop movies, Kevin Hart can’t seem to stay out of theaters, and we could rattle off an endless array of Eddie Murphy quotes from films. But what are the best? What are the movies that you can’t go to any BBQ or hair salon without hearing quotes and references? There are almost too many to consider, but we whittled it down to ten. These are our picks for the funniest Black comedies of all time.
Far be it for us to ever question our TV overlords and the small-screen movie reboot trend, but at least some franchises feel fair game for a fresh take.

Are you ready for a 'Rush Hour 4?' Jackie Chan and Chris Tucker might be, according to ‘Rush Hour’ producer Arthur Sarkissian, said they’re ramping up for a fourth chapter and are about ready to bring a screenwriter on board to beef up the story.
