Poll: Comedies With Serious Titles

Some comedies like Being There (1979), Terms of Endearment (1983) or The Goodbye Girl (1977) can afford 'serious' titles because of their dramatic or realistic undertones, such movies tagged as comedy/dramas won't be considered for this poll.

So let's focus on comedies, plain comedies, whose titles seem to exude some 'dramatic', if not depressing vibes, and would be more appropriate for a bleak Sunday afternoon drama, plain, existential and depressing drama, nothing related to crime or horror.

Which of these comedies has the most depressingly serious title?
