Feeling Down in the Dumps? Try Some Laughter Therapy on Netflix!
We could all do with some healthy doses of laughter in our lives, but finding that one comedy that can help you smile, chortle, and guffaw your way through the entire movie and not grin and bore you can be a tough ask. We know, we feel it, too — when was the last movie you watched with your family or friends and laughed so hard that you cried? Yeah, we are thinking, okay ……still thinking! So, here we have a list of some really funny movies to watch to bust the stress and drive the weekday blues away. The best thing about this list is that these comedies and rom-coms are available on the streaming giant, Netflix, that make the movie-watching experience a delightful one!
The Other Guys
This buddy cop film has fun and laughter written all about it. We know it is a tried and tested repertoire, but when you have two excellent actors up to their irreverent antics such as Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg, well you know what to expect. The bumbling New York cops made a meal out of going from desk work into white-collar crime after their fellow officers got killed, and they have to strive hard to reach the big league.
Baby Mama has the potential to tug at your heartstrings or make you hold your sides with uncontrollable laughter. Tina Fey and Amy Poehler make the movie worth watching. Kate (Tina Fey) decides to have a child when she finds out she is infertile she seeks help from Angie (Poehler) to act as her surrogate.
The airplane is a 1980 specific parody of a movie that is rare to find these days, and yet it is still relevant and makes the same impact well. Airplane! explores the disaster movie genre and follows the hilarious exploits of pilots aboard an airplane. The pilots and crew members become sick after a bout of food poisoning. There is complete mayhem with goofy flashbacks and hilarious antics from those aboard the plane. Some of the jokes may fall flat on its face but mostly the film does what it is good at — make you laugh!
This 1995 classic flick looks as funny, impactful, and relevant today as it was back in the nineties. If you are big in the nineties culture, then this movie will surely make the cut. Filmmaker Amy Heckerling’s film is based on Jane Austen’s novel Emma but with a teen twist. Cher (Alicia Silverstone) plays a privileged girl who takes it upon herself to give Tai (Brittany Murphy) a complete makeover. The film talks deep in the garb of comedic tones and the emotional troughs and peaks hold your attention throughout the entire film. It helps that the cast is excellent and plays their parts exceedingly well.
A Serious Man
There is absolutely nothing ‘serious’ about this Joel and Ethan Coen starer film. The story is placed somewhere in the midwest in 1967 and is all about Larry Gopnik (Michael Stuhlbarg), who’s facing some major challenges in his life as his wife decides to part ways with him and at the same time, a student tries to blackmail him into giving him better grades. What Larry has to say about all the troubles in his life? “I didn’t do anything!” It is the only way for him as he confuses being a passive person to be a good person. It offers plenty of food for thought — almost a feast, really – and it is hilariously funny too and so a strange yet winning combination.
The Incredible Jessica James
This Sundance hit is a great vehicle for Jessica Williams. Well, we chose this as not very many people have seen this, and yet it is a charming and delightful movie, in which the protagonist, a former Daily Show correspondent, is trying hard to find happiness and love in equal measure. This film is equal parts entertaining as it is tender. Well, if you are looking for something that is funny and awkward yet entertaining, this could be a great one to watch with a huge tub of popcorn snuggling on the couch with friends and family.
So, here’s some of our comedy movie compilation that offers more than just fun moments.
