I haven't seen it yet but the Golden Globes nominated it in the musical/comedy category...so apparently they think so.  From clips it seems to have comedic aspects to it. But it's listed with several genre tags on IMDb, so not totally comedy.  It seems some drama, sci-fy, action, etc.

Although it has traces of comedy in it, it cannot be categorized as a Comedy film, per se. But since The Martian HAD to be nominated, for reasons obscure and mostly unknown, and since Globe could not nominate it in the Drama category, it was nominated in the Musical/Comedy. It's funny it's inappropriate.

Definitely not a comedy. Ofcourse it got it's jokes in it, but not a comedy.
