You went to see a comedy that you thought you would like. But you didn't laugh much while watching it. When you leave the movie, you say this.
It wasn't as funny as I thought it would be.
Use this phrase to compare your expectations of something before you experience it with your opinion afterwards:
It wasn't as easy as I thought it would be.
The flight wasn't as bad as I thought it would be, but it was still pretty uncomfortable.
The opposite of this is "___ was ___er than I thought it would be":
It was a lot harder than I thought it would be.
