The modern studio comedy increasingly feels limp, suffocated by the financial imperatives of high-concept plots and desperately in search of signs of life.There have, undoubtedly, been good comedies since – namely things with Melissa McCarthy in them, Noah Baumbach's "Frances Ha" and anything by Wes Anderson – but comedy has been the greatest casualty to the constrictions of blockbuster-centric Hollywood.The freedom necessary for comedy to thrive is mostly found on television, the action being with "Broad City," "Atlanta," "Inside Amy Schumer" and others.Alas, it's going to take more than Wonder Woman to save the studio comedy.
