Black comedy, also known as dark comedy, morbid humor, gallows humor, or dark humor is a style of comedy that makes light of subject matter that is generally considered taboo, particularly subjects that are normally considered serious or painful to discuss.

Not sure what your definition of “dark comedy” is but I’ll roll with this one, and I think this sums up In Bruges perfectly.

I saw the first Borat opening weekend in a packed theater and oh my god it was one of the funnest experiences of my life, that contagious atmosphere made me laugh uncomfortably hard the whole time, I’m surprised I didn’t suffocate or have a heart attack or something.
