Top 10 Highest Grossing Black Comedies

Hollywood keeps insisting that there’s not a market for movies with predominantly black actors. The few times they are given a movie, a majority of them are comedies. The industry still has a long way to go but in the meantime here’s a cheers to the Top 10 Highest Grossing Black Comedies:

  1. Ride Along – $134, 938, 200
  2. The Nutty Professor – $128, 814, 019
  3. Nutty Professor II: The Klumps – $123, 309, 890
  4. Big Momma’s House – $117, 559, 438
  5. Norbit – $95, 673, 607
  6. Think Like A Man – $91, 547, 205
  7. Ride Along 2 – $90,835,030
  8. Tyler Perry’s Madea Goes to Jail – $90,508,336
  9. Are We There Yet? – $82,674,398
  10. White Men Can’t Jump – $76,253,806

Just in case you weren’t counting, I counted for you: Kevin Hart, Ice Cube and Eddie Murphy have 3 movies each in the list. Can I say, I can’t believe Norbit made the list.
