You'll get no disagreement from me on Stiller and I usually hate these type of comedies because a large percentage of the movies that fall under this category for me are Will Ferrell, Ben Stiller, and Jim Carrey movies because I don't find any of them the least bit funny. However, Vince Vaughn cracks me and I surprisingly liked both Dodgeball and Wedding Crashers.
There are a ton of movies I can think of for this category, I guess I have a very very different taste in movies than most of the people I know, but if I had to pick one I'd say Dumb and Dumber, didn't laugh once during that movie.

I can watch that movie all day long, and not just because the scenes featuring Miles' apartment were actually filmed around the corner from where some friends live.
Magnolia for me, or as I call it, How-Much-Random-Shit-Can-Happen-For-No-Good- Reason-And-Will-Everyone-Stop-Yelling-About-It.
I really like Boogie Nights, so Magnolia was a huge disappointment.
