Here’s The List Of Best Comedy Movies On Netflix
Sorry to Bother You
Sorry for bothering you. It is almost churlish to point out that the movie ends up careening magnificently out of control because it has so many ideas bursting out of every seam, so much ambition, so much it so passionately wants to express.
This is rapper and producer Boots Riley’s debut film, and it shows in every manner imaginable—good, awful, wonderful, ridiculous—as if he didn’t know if he’d ever be able to make another, so he threw everything he had into it.
Her is a melancholy, long-form episode of Black Mirror.
Theodore (Joaquin Phoenix), a professional letter writer who has recently divorced, and the operating system with whom he falls in love are the subjects of Spike Jonze’s great drama. What makes Her so sorrowful also makes her a little scary.
Hunt for the Wilderpeople
Bella’s (Rima Te Wiata) first meeting with Ricky (Julian Dennison), the new foster child she’s agreed to take in, isn’t encouraging, especially given her clumsy comments about his weight.
As a result, with child-services agent Paula (Rachel House) portraying Ricky as an unruly wild child, one fears that the kid would walk all over this possibly out-of-her-mind mother.
The Other Guys
The Other Guys is a hilarious buddy police film starring Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg, even if you don’t want to learn about Ponzi scams. Ferrell is significantly more understated than he is in most McKay comedies, whereas Wahlberg goes for broke in one of his most outrageous comedy portrayals.
Monty Python and the Holy Grail
It’s a shame that the Holy Grail’s luster has been tarnished by its own ubiquity. When we hear terms like “flesh wound,” “ni!” or “vast swaths of territory,” our first thought is usually of having entire scenes read to us by naive, obsessive nerds.
Or, in my case, as a dumb, obsessive nerd, reciting entire episodes to strangers.
Although Adam Sandler’s experience with Netflix original films is, to put it mildly, inconsistent, there is one absolutely uber-charming gem on the list in the form of Murder Mystery.
After the success of Just Go With It (which was actually really nice! ), the Sandman reunites with Jennifer Aniston in this new film. The film follows Nick (Sandler) and Audrey (Audrey), a married NYPD cop and hairdresser, as they become progressively engaged in a murder mystery on board the boat of a millionaire they just met.
Christine “Lady Bird” McPherson (Saoirse Ronan) watches a young man belt out the final notes to “Being Alive” from Stephen Sondheim’s Company before auditioning for the school musical.
“I wish I could just live through something,” she says wistfully as she lays her head on the window in a car with her mother a few seconds before.
With films like Four Weddings and a Funeral, Notting Hill, and Bridget Jones’s Diary, Richard Curtis has established himself as one of the finest romantic comedy directors of all time.
But with Love Actually, Curtis may have created the ultimate rom-com, combining ten unique stories of love in London—all of which intertwine—and one of the most outstanding casts in recent memory.
To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before
To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before, the latest teen smash hit is a fantastic film. It isn’t particularly good “for an adolescent film.” It’s not particularly good “for a romantic comedy.” It’s perfect for a movie.
TATBILB inverts the 80/20 ratio completely: Within the first 20 minutes, all five of our daydreamy, emotionally buttoned-up protagonist Lara Jean’s (Lana Condor) deeply private love letters to her childhood crushes have been stolen and mailed out—including one to her neighbor and best friend, Josh (Israel Broussard), who also happens to be her older sisters just barely ex-boyfriend.
