Table of Contents
This is the greatest comedy teen movie of all time and it isn’t even close. Definitely one of the best Comedies movies on Netflix. It was added to the Netflix playlist only recently and if you haven’t watched it yet, you should watch it for sure. The scene where Micheal Sera sing might be the greatest thing that has happened to me.
Scott Pilgrim vs. The World
All of you should thank me for suggesting this absolute piece of gem. I have absolutely no idea why people don’t talk about this movie. It might be the freshest comedy movie I had seen in a while. It was released six years ago and is still better than most of the comedy movies following it. The sound design, cast, camerawork, editing, everything is different from all the other typical movies and makes it better.
My Best Friend Wedding
It was Julia Roberts at her best. And not only Julia Roberts, but Cameron Diaz is also in this movie and their chemistry alone makes this worth watching. If you are a fan of romantic comedy and haven’t watched this, do yourself a favor and watch it now. You won’t be bored for even a single second.
The Death of Stalin
One of the best Satirical comedies I have ever seen. Netflix got very lucky when they acquired its right. I think Jason Isacc made this movie 100X better. When I watched this, I didn’t know what I was getting into. But now that I have watched this, I want every satire comedy to be like this only. Definitely, one of the Best Comedies On Netflix.
I absolutely adore this movie. The final scene of Lady Bird might be the most beautiful thing I have ever seen. I don’t know if it’s the feminine side inside of me but it was beautiful. And not only the final scene but the whole movie was amazing. It will hit all your soft spots and will make you feel for the characters.
Julie and Julia
Amy Adams is amazing and that is an understatement. Meryl Streep is in this too and we don’t have to tell you how good she is. The way both of them carried this movie is a beautiful sight to watch. I want more movies with these two as soon as possible. It is one of the most quirkiest Comedies movies on Netflix. You should go and watch it and you will definitely be surprised by how good this actually is.
Cloudy With a Chance of meatball
It is the best comedy animated movie I have ever watched. The sheer amount of jokes in this movie is mad. I know a few of them to miss, but the one who hits will make you laugh so hard that you won’t be able to control it. And the best thing is that you can watch both parts because both of them are good.
50 first dates
This movie is a different emotional drive. This romantic comedy will leave you in tears every time you watch it. Adam Sandler is just on a different level. You can see here how good of an actor he is. It is a shame he started taking challenging roles this late in his career. But keeping that aside it is a wonderful film with every possible emotion in it. Just watch it, because this is as good as mainstream rom-com can get.
Between Two Ferns: The movie
I still can’t get the roast session by Jennifer Lawrence out of my mind. Every interview that was featured here was outstanding. If it was Zach interviewing people for whole 90 minutes, this would have been my favorite movie of all time. The credits, bloopers and every other thing will make you laugh so hard that it will hurt your stomach.
Crazy Stupid Love
So, you have got Steve Carell, Ryan Gosling, Julian Moore, and Emma Stone in the same movie. What else do you need? This cast is enough to make anyone attracted to this movie and it stands up to the hype. The last thirty minutes of this movie is just a circus. A good circus that you all will enjoy.
The Big Bang Theory
Now, we are in the TV show category and how can we not mention this one? One of the most famous sitcoms ever. BBT can be your go-to show anytime and you won’t regret it. It went downhill for 1 or 2 seasons, but it picked up the pace again. It gets repetitive too, but the ending makes up for all of it.
The End Of F***ing World
It is one of the most genuinely funny dark comedies I have ever seen. The jokes really get to you and will make you laugh. The second season was more of a lovable melodrama. But the satirical comedy in the first season is unbeatable. And the best part is that it doesn’t feel forced in any way.
The second season was pure romance, but the comedy in the first season was undeniably gold. The mixture of comedy with serious elements makes the perfect balance that is very rare in recent shows. The charm of all three lead actors of the show is just amazing. It will hook you to your screen.
The Good Place
One of the few shows that are smart, witty, and funny for real. The concept is something fresh and I can watch it again just for that only. You have to get used to this show, as the first few episodes are really dull. But, once it picks up the pace, you will enjoy it throughout. It is one of the few shows that will genuinely make you care about the characters.
Rick and Morty
Another show, another cult classic. One of the Best Comedies On Netflix that you can watch. You probably have heard about this show one way or another. The internet is filled with Rick and Morty memes and quotes. And you don’t get that famous just for being average. By the end of the first season, you will be completely hooked on the show.
Animated shows are really the way to go. This show is different from Rick and Morty as it is on fifth gear right from the start. The character development I have seen in this show might be one of the best ever. It is one of the most relatable shows I have ever watched, even though the main character is a half-horse. It starts as a gag show but turns into something much more real and influential.
Rush Hour came out in 1998 and still stands as one of the best. Watch the whole trilogy and I promise you, you won’t regret any second of it. Not only comedy scenes, but the action scenes are also top-notch. The highlight between the lead pair is absolutely amazing and makes the movie 100X better.
This is the best comedy show on Netflix and it ain’t even close. I can even compare this show to Fleabag and The Office, it is that good. After first 2-3 episodes, it becomes so good that you won’t get enough of it. You can watch it again and again and won’t be bored even once. One of the few shows where whole cast is perfect.
The Austin Powers Trilogy
One of the very few examples of sequels being better than the first one. I watched this movie as a kid and at the time of rewatching is still holds up. All of these three movies are completely stupid and hilarious. And sometimes you just want that only. A movie where you can sit without thinking anything and have a good time.
Dolemite is My Name
The only reason I watched this movie was because of peer pressure. And boy, I am glad I was pressured. Because I didn’t expect to like it this much. 2019 in particular, was a great year for cinema, and Dolemite is My Name is the perfect example of that. It is one of the best Comedies movies on Netflix and you should watch it right now.
Jon Favreau, Sofia Vergara, Scarlett Johansson, Robert Downey JR., I mean how many more reasons you want to watch this? The three highlights of the movies are Acting, Music, and the Absolute beauty of the food in it. For few scenes, I thought I was watching a food channel and that is a good thing. It is a perfect example of Comedy and Drama being balanced out.
Monty Python and Holy Grail
It is a great comedy movie that will make you laugh throughout. Just watch it and you will know what I am talking about. On paper, it looks like nothing, but as the story unfolds, you will be hooked on this. It features so many styles of comedy. It has slapstick, turns of phrase/puns, sexual innuendos, breaking the fourth wall, absurdity, political humor, religious blasphemy, utter contempt for the audience (the non-ending) and so many more. I know this movie is not for everyone, but if you are a fan, watch it.
