Funny movies will always be my favorite,
the comedy will always be my jam. No matter how many epic drama and action
thrillers I watch, I will always go back to this genre. Life is already too
serious to only watch serious movies. We all need laughs every now and then.
What better way to relax and laugh than watching a comedy.
Here are some of the movies that have
given me laughs and I have thoroughly enjoyed my time watching these. Add these
to your watching list and enjoy.
Juno is a comedy going hand in hand with an emotional story. This movie gave rise to an influx of similar movies being made with similar storylines but none help up to this movie. It is about a teenager who gets pregnant by her new boyfriend and decides to give the baby up for adoption. The movie won Oscar and was a hit. Nothing like a good emotional comedy duo.
Harold and Kumar Go To White Castle
This movie came out in 2004. The story
revolves around a a couple of stoners. This movie is said to be ahead of its
times with the tipping scales of marijuana both being medicinal and otherwise.
The adventure of the stoners getting the munchies is filled with hilarious
proportions. You will be holding your stomachs by the end.
About a Boy
This movie came out in 2002. It is one of
those Hugh Grant movies that you can watch a lot of times and not get bored.
Hugh Grant plays Will who is a rich and spoilt Londoner in his 30s and is in
search of available women. He invents an imaginary son and attends single
parent meetings. He ends up meeting Marcus who is an odd 12-year-old boy who
has problems at school. Both the characters end up becoming friends and we see
the character growth with comedy thrown in.
Silver Linings Playbook
This movie came out in 2012. In this
movie, Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper play two lost and emotionally
damaged yet attractive (of course!) people who find friendship and kinship. Pat
is sent to a mental health facility because he brutally attacks his wife’s
lover. He then gets out of the center after eight months and meets Tiffany and
the journey is hilarious.
Mistress America came out in 2015. A lot
later than all the other movies on the list, but I really like this one so had
to include it. Tracy Fishko is a naive freshman. She finds her life turning
upside down when she starts living her life with her mischievous future
stepsister. This is sort of your typical teenage drama that you don’t watch for
any seriousness, just for the laughs and the light storyline.
