Night at the Museum 2The battle for summer's funniest movie is on ...

What do Ben Stiller, flying old men, and gay Austrian supermodels have in common? No, it's not that they all loved 'Star Trek' (though they probably did); they're the stars of some of this summer's (potentially) funniest flicks.

With 'Wolverine,' 'Star Trek' and 'Angels & Demons' opening in the first three weeks of May, so far the box office has been heavy on the action and light on the laughs. But that will all change on May 22, when Stiller's 'Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian' rolls into theaters, kicking off a slate of comedies that should have moviegoers in stitches from now until the end of July.

Check out our picks for the seven most promising laffers to hit multiplexes this beach season, then cast your vote for which will be summer's funniest.
