Slapstick film

Slapstick films are comedy films where physical comedy that includes pratfalls, tripping, falling, are highlighted over dialogue, plot and character development.[1] The physical comedy in these films contains a cartoonish style of violence that is predominantly harmless and goofy in tone.[1]

Silent film had slapstick comedies that included the films starring Buster Keaton, Charlie Chaplin, the Keystone Cops and Harold Lloyd.[1] These comedians often laced their slapstick with social commentary while comedians such as Abbott and Costello, Laurel and Hardy and The Three Stooges did not contain these social messages.[1]

There were less slapstick comedies produced at the advent of sound film.[1] The genre resurfaced after the World War II in France with films by Jacques Tati and in the United States with films It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World and The Great Race as well as the films of comedians like Jerry Lewis.[1]
