UNIVERSAL CITY, CA – APRIL 20: Ice Cube Surprises Fans At 20th Anniversary Re-Release Special Screening Of His Hit Cult-Comedy ‘Friday’ Presented By Fathom Events at AMC CityWalk Stadium 19 at Universal Studios Hollywood on April 20, 2015 in Universal City, California.

50. Friday After Next

Release Year: 2002

Written by Ice Cube

Directed by Marcus Raboy

Starring Ice Cube, Mike Epps, John Witherspoon, Don “D.C.” Curry, Terry Crews, Anna Maria Horsford, Clifton Powell, Katt Williams, and K.D. Aubert

Friday After Next is the third movie of the Friday film franchise. Chris Tucker, unfortunately, is not in the sequels, but the movie is still hilarious!

In the movie, Craig (Ice Cube) and Day-Day (Mike Epps) are robbed just before Christmas. The thief has taken their rent money and their Christmas presents for friends and family. Craig and Day-Day go on a mission to get their stuff back.

Unfortunately, Friday and Next Friday are not streaming on Netflix. It would be nice if Netflix could pick up Friday and Next Friday some time soon. Hey, I could even use a new Friday movie if Netflix were to get Ice Cube and Chris Tucker to make another!

49. Special Correspondents

Release Year: 2016

Written and Directed by Ricky Gervais

Starring Ricky Gervais, Eric Bana, Vera Farmiga, Kelly Macdonald, Kevin Pollak, Benjamin Bratt, America Ferrera, and Raúl Castillo

In Special Correspondents, a fake news report from Frank Bonneville (Eric Bana), a radio journalist, and his sound tech Ian Finch (Ricky Gervais) lead the pair down a road of relevance, popularity, and more fake news stories.

Special Correspondents premiered on Netflix on April 29, 2016. The film is Netflix’s fourth original film to be released on the streaming service.

Overall, the reviews for the film have not been great, but I was impressed with how funny the movie actually is. Ricky Gervais is one of the funniest people alive, and he keeps coming up with good, hilarious material.

Special Correspondents is not for everyone, but most people will enjoy the jokes and gags. Check out the rest of the 50 Best Comedy Movies on Netflix, if it’s not for you! 

Co-writers and directors Bobby Farrelly (L) and his brother Peter Farelly (R) arrive for the premiere of ‘The Heartbreak Kid’ 27 September 2007 in Los Angeles. The story centers on a man (Ben Stiller) who is convinced that he has finally met the right girl and marries too quickly. While on his honeymoon and in the process of discovering that his new bride is a nightmare, he meets the girl of his dreams.

48. The Heartbreak Kid

Release Year: 2007

Written by Peter Farrelly, Bobby Farrelly, Scot Armstrong, Leslie Dixon, and Kevin Barnett

Directed by Peter and Bobby Farrelly

Starring Ben Stiller, Michelle Monaghan, Malin Åkerman, Jerry Stiller, Rob Corddry, Carlos Mencia, Scott Wilson, and Danny McBride

The Heartbreak Kid is based on the 1972 film of the same name written by Neil Simon and directed by Elaine May. The Farrelly Brothers, Peter and Bobby, remade the film.

In the film, Eddie (Ben Stiller), a sports shop manager and kind of a dork, meets an exciting woman and asks her to marry him to stop her from moving to Holland for work. While on their honeymoon, Eddie realizes he does not love his new wife and hits things off with another woman and begins spending time with her.

The Heartbreak Kid is not a great movie compared to some of the other movies on Netflix; however, it is pretty funny. I think you will like it if you enjoy silly and ridiculous romantic comedies.

47. Manson Family Vacation

Release Year: 2015

Written and Directed by J. Davis

Starring Jay Duplass, Linas Phillips, Leonora Pitts, Adam Chernick, Tobin Bell, and Davie-Blue

In Manson Family Vacation, brothers, Nick (Jay Duplass) and Conrad (Linas Phillips), with a rough history travel around Southern California to many of the different sites that have connections to Charles Manson and the Manson Family.

Manson Family Vacation was produced by the Duplass Bros. production company and premiered at the 2015 SXSW Film Festival.

Manson Family Vacation is a bit dark and is light on the jokes, but overall, it’s a fantastic movie, definitely one of the 50 Best Comedy Movies on Netflix. Currently, the film has a 100 percent critical approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes.

46. Staten Island Summer

Release Year: 2015

Written by Colin Jost

Directed by Rhys Thomas

Starring Graham Phillips, Zack Pearlman, John DeLuca, Will Forte, Fred Armisen, Cecily Strong, Ashley Greene, Bobby Moynihan, Mike O’Brien

Written by Saturday Night Live’s Colin Jost, Staten Island Summer is a take on the classic coming-of-age comedy. Two best friends, Danny (Graham Phillips) and Frank (Zack Pearlman), who work at a Staten Island pool and water park, try to cap off their last summer before heading off to college by getting girls and throwing one huge party. Luckily, Danny and Frank’s co-workers at the pool are more than willing to help them out.

Overall, Staten Island Summer didn’t get great reviews, but most comedies don’t anyway. If you’re into this style of comedy, though, I think you’ll really enjoy it, especially if you’re a fan of Saturday Night Live. There’s major roles and cameos from tons of SNL stars, including Bobby Moynihan, Cecily Strong, Will Forte, Fred Armisen, Mike O’Brien, and Colin Jost, himself! That’s a cast worthy of the 50 Best Comedy Movies on Netflix!

45. Adult Beginners

Release Year: 2014

Written by Jeff Cox, Liz Flahive, and Nick Kroll

Directed by Ross Katz

Starring Nick Kroll, Rose Byrne, Bobby Cannavale, Joel McHale, Caleb and Matthew Paddock, Paula Garcés, along with Mike Birbiglia, Jane Krakowski, and Bobby Moynihan

In the film, Jake (Nick Kroll) moves back into his childhood home with his sister, Justine (Rose Byrne), and her husband, Danny (Bobby Cannavale), and their son after his tech company fails and he’s left without a job. For a small amount of money, Jake takes a job taking care of his young nephew during the day.

Adult Beginners features a great cast. Rose Byrne is terrific, and Bobby Moynihan and Jane Krakowski pull off fantastic cameos.

Adult Beginners is one of the best indie comedy movies on Netflix! Nick Kroll gets to show off a sensitive side of this acting profile. We all know him as a really funny guy, but he puts on a good performance in Adult Beginners.

44. Pee-wee’s Big Holiday

Release Year: 2016

Written by Paul Reubens and Paul Rust

Directed by John Lee

Starring Paul Reubens, Tara Buck, Stephanie Beatriz, Joe Manganiello, Jessica Pohl, Alia Shawkat, Hal Landon Jr., and Brian Palermo.

Obviously, we had to add Pee-Wee’s Big Holiday to the 50 Best Comedy Movies on Netflix. Pee-wee’s Big Holiday is the fourth Netflix original film, following Beasts of No Nation, Ridiculous 6, and Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: Sword of Destiny.

In the film, Pee-wee takes his first vacation and travels to New York to celebrate Joe Manganiello’s birthday party. Along the way, as he always does, Pee-wee gets himself into trouble.

Overall, Pee-wee’s Big Holiday maintains the same tones and themes of all the Pee-wee Herman movies. If you are a fan of Pee-wee Herman and his movies, you have to watch this new movie! Joe Manganiello is fantastic in the movie, as is most of the cast.

Good Burger

43. Good Burger 

Release Year: 1997

Written by Dan Schneider, Kevin Kopelow, and Heath Seifert

Directed by Brian Robbins

Starring Kenan Roberts, Kel Mitchell, Abe Vigoda, Sinbad, Shaquille O’Neal, Jan Schwieterman, Shar Jackson, Dan Schneider, and Ron Lester

Good Burger is based on a sketch from the Nickelodeon sketch comedy series All That. The stars of the film, Kenan Thompson and Kel Mitchell, also starred in the series, along with their own comedy series Kenan & Kel. 

In Good Burger, Dexter (Kenan Thompson), a high school student, is forced to get a job at Good Burger, a local burger joint. While skeptical and unwilling at first, Dexter becomes friends with Ed (Kel Mitchell), a fellow high school student who created the secret sauce that brings people to Good Burger. Dexter and Ed, then, become caught up with Mondo Burger, a competitor to Good Burger, who is trying to steal Ed’s secret sauce.

Kenan Thompson also stars on Saturday Night Live. 


42. Superstar

Release Year: 1999

Written by Steve Koren 

Directed by Bruce McCulloch 

Starring Molly Shannon, Will Ferrell, Tom Green, Elaine Hendrix, Harland Williams, Tom Green, Emmy Laybourne, and Mark McKinney

Superstar is based on the Saturday Night Live recurring sketch featuring the character Mary Katherine Gallagher played by Molly Shannon.

In the film, a weird high schooler, Mary Katherine Gallagher (Molly Shannon), at a Catholic high school tries to get with the uber-cool and popular Sky Corrigan (Will Ferrell).

Superstar has reached cult comedy status with its endless re-runs on cable TV. You have to check it out if you haven’t seen it yet! It’s one of the best cult comedy movies on Netflix, for sure!

Marisa Tomei

41. Anger Management

Release Year: 2003

Written by David S. Dorfman

Directed by Peter Segal

Starring Jack Nicholson, Adam Sandler, John Turturro, Woody Harrelson, Marisa Tomei, and Luis Guzmán

In the film, Dave Buznik (Adam Sandler) freaks out after a minor altercation on an airplane and is forced to take Anger Management classes to help control his temper. Unfortunately, his new therapist Dr. Rydell (Jack Nicholson) happens to be the passenger who he got into the altercation on the airplane. Together, they try to help Dave find his peace.

Anger Management is not a great movie overall, but it is one of the best comedies on Netflix. If you like Adam Sandler, this is a must-watch on the streaming service.

The film was also adapted into a TV series following the commercial success of the film.


40. Slow Learners

Release Year: 2015

Written by Heather Maidat and Matt Serword

Directed by Sheena M. Joyce and Don Argott

Starring Adam Pally, Sarah Burns, Reid Scott, Catherine Reitman, Kate Flannery, Kevin Dunn, Bobby Moynihan, Cecily Strong, Mary Grill, Peter Grosz, Frances Callier, and Gil Ozeri

In the film, Jeff Lowry (Adam Pally) and Anne Martin (Sarah Burns), two awkward teachers and friends, try to spice up their respective love lives over the course of one summer break.

The film premiered in theaters on August 21, 2015.

Slow Learners has a great cast, one of the best of any indie comedy movies on Netflix. Adam Pally and Sarah Burns, although they aren’t featured in starring roles that often, are as good of a tandem as I saw in a comedy in 2015. The film also features appearances by Saturday Night Live stars Bobby Moynihan and Cecily Strong.

If you like indie comedies, Slow Learners is a great option on Netflix!


39. Drinking Buddies

Release Year: 2013

Written and Directed by Joe Swanberg

Starring Jake Johnson, Olivia Wilde, Anna Kendrick, Ron Livingston, Jason Sudeikis, Ti West

Drinking Buddies premiered at the SXSW (South by Southwest) Festival in 2013. The film was nominated for the Audience Award for Best Narrative.

In the film, Luke (Jake Johnson) and Kate (Olivia Wilde) are co-workers and “best” friends who work together at a craft beer company in Chicago. It’s clear that Luke and Kate have some type of chemistry, but their current relationships with Jill (Anna Kendrick) and Chris (Ron Livingston), respectively, are keeping them from being together.

Drinking Buddies has a great, hilarious cast, but the film is much more emotional and compelling than the more traditional comedy movies on Netflix. That’s a good thing, honestly. If Drinking Buddies was more like Jake Johnson’s most recent film Let’s Be Cops, it wouldn’t be even close to as good as it is now.

38. Handsome: A Netflix Mystery Movie

Release Year: 2017

Written by Jeff Garlin and Andrea Siegel 

Directed by Jeff Garlin 

Starring Jeff Garlin, Natasha Lyonne, Amy Sedaris, Kaley Cuoco, Steven Weber, Leah Remini, and Christine Woods

Handsome: A Netflix Mystery Movie premiered on Netflix on Friday, May 5. It’s one of the funniest Netflix original films to date. If you like Garlin and his work, I think you will definitely like this movie.

In the film, Detective Gene Handsome (Jeff Garlin) and Detective Fleur Scozzari (Natasha Lyonne) try to crack a murder case in Los Angeles.

There’s something very Angie Tribeca about this movie. It is not quite the all-out comedy assault that Angie Tribeca is, but it’s still very silly and funny overall. Check it out tonight!

37. The Fundamentals of Caring

Release Year: 2016

Written and Directed by Rob Burnett 

Starring Paul Rudd, Craig Roberts, Selena Gomez, Megan Ferguson, Jennifer Ehle, Frederick Weller, Bobby Cannavale, and Julia Denton

The Fundamentals of Caring is a Netflix original film and is based on Jonathan Evison’s bookThe Revised Fundamentals of Caregiving. 

In the film, Ben (Paul Rudd) begins working as a caretaker for Trevor (Craig Roberts), a young man with muscular dystrophy. Together, the pair go on a road trip throughout the West.

The Fundamentals of Caring premiered at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival.

If you’re looking for a heartfelt dramedy to watch on Netflix, this is the movie I would choose. Paul Rudd, Craig Roberts, and Selena Gomez put on some fantastic performances.

36. David Brent: Life on the Road 

Release Year: 2016 

Written and Directed by Ricky Gervais 

Starrin Ricky Gervais, Ben Bailey Smith, Andy Burrows, Jo Hartley, Tom Basden, Mandeep Dhillon, and Tom Bennett

In David Brent: Life on the Road, Rick Gervais plays David Brent, his character from The Office UK, which was one of the most popular sitcoms of the last decade or so. The film premiered in the U.K. last year, but it premiered on Netflix in the U.S. on February 10.

In the film, David Brent, who is still working as a salesman, takes out his pension and uses it to fund a three-week tour around England with his band Foregone Conclusion. Needless to say, the band is horrible, and his bandmates don’t get along with David.

You don’t even need to have seen The Office to enjoy this movie, although it might help. We loved Life on the Road, and we think you will too!

Win It All

Win It All- Photo Credit: Netflix

35. Win It All

Release Year: 2017

Written by Jake Johnson and Joe Swanberg

Directed by Joe Swanberg

Starring Jake Johnson, Joe Lo Truglio, Keegan-Michael Key, and Aislinn Derbez

Win It All premiered at the South by Southwest film and music festival in Austin, Texas. Netflix picked up the film and released the movie a few weeks later in April 2017.

In the film, Eddie (Jake Johnson) is forced to win back a bunch of money after his friend that he was holding it for gets released from prison early.

Win It All is one of the best and funniest Netflix original movies we have seen so far. Remember this title so you can watch it when you have a chance.

If you like Win It All, you should also check out Drinking Buddies, Happy Christmas, and the Netflix original series Easy. All of which were made by Swanberg and are now streaming on Netflix.


34. Adventureland

Release Year: 2009

Written and Directed by Greg Mottola

Starring Jesse Eisenberg, Kristen Stewart, Ryan Reynolds, Bill Hader, Martin Starr, Kristen Wiig

After graduating college, James Brennan (Jesse Eisenberg) returns home to find out his parents are cutting him off and that he has to get a summer job before attending grad school in the fall. Late into the summer already, James gets a job at a crappy amusement park called Adventureland. Immediately, James falls for a co-worker, Em (Kristen Stewart), and over the course of the summer, James tries to lock it down, despite being weird and clumsy.

Greg Mottola, who also directed Superbad, wrote and directed Adventureland, which was only his second writing credit, and his first since The Daytrippers (1996).

With this cast, minus Kristen Stewart, you’d think Adventureland would be a lot funnier than it is, but instead of going for the improv gags like they could with Bill Hader, Kristen Wiig, and Martin Starr, they choose a more clinical approach when it comes to the jokes. It’s still really funny, but there’s a lot to be desired, comedy-wise, with Hader and Wiig batting comedy clean-up.

33. Dreamworks’ Trolls

Release Year: 2016

Written by Jonathan Aibel and Glenn Berger

Directed by Mike Mitchell and Walt Dohrn

Starring Anna Kendrick, Justin Timberlake, Zooey Deschanel, James Corden, Russell Brand, and Gwen Stefani

Dreamworks’ Trolls is coming to Netflix on Wednesday, June 7. The film premiered in November 2016, and it’s now available on the streaming service a few months later. That’s not a bad turnaround!

The film is based on Trolls dolls, and it was a huge hit in theaters and for home video. “Can’t Stop The Feeling!”, the theme song for the film, performed by Justin Timberlake, was nominated for an Oscar.

Trolls tells the story of a group of trolls who try to save their village from various threats.

32. The Waterboy

Release Year: 1998

Written by Tim Herlihy and Adam Sandler

Directed by Frank Coraci

Starring Adam Sandler, Kathy Bates, Fairuza Balk, Henry Winkler, Jerry Reed, Peter Dante, and Rob Schneider

In The Waterboy, Bobby Boucher (Adam Sandler), a man in his 30s working as the water boy, begins playing for the South Central Louisiana State University Mud Dogs college football team after learning how to channel his anger and aggression. His mother (Kathy Bates), however, believes football is the “devil.”

The Waterboy is probably one of the better Adam Sandler movies, and it came out in the same year as The Wedding Singer, which helped bolster Sandler’s film profile following his success on Saturday Night Live.

There are tons of Adam Sandler movies on Netflix including Big Daddy, Anger Management, and all of the Netflix original films.

Big Daddy

31. Big Daddy

Release Year: 1999

Written by Tim Herlihy, Adam Sandler, Steve Franks

Directed by Dennis Dugan

Starring Adam Sandler, Rob Schneider, Joey Lauren Adams, Jon Stewart, Cole Sprouse, Dylan Sprouse, Leslie Mann, Steve Buscemi, Kristy Swanson, Josh Mostel

In Big Daddy, Adam Sandler plays Sonny, a lazy, middle-aged man with no work ethic or motivation, and his girlfriend, Vanessa (Joey Lauren Adams) is sick of it and ready to leave him. One day, a young kid, Julian (Cole and Dylan Sprouse), is dropped off at Sonny’s door with a note that claims Sonny’s roommate, Kevin (Jon Stewart), is Julian’s biological father. With an upcoming vacation to China planned for Kevin, Sonny uses Julian to prove that he’s a responsible adult to win back Vanessa. Being a parent isn’t as easy as Sonny thinks.

There’s no debate; Big Daddy is one of Sandler’s best movies. Some people even consider it to be his best work, up there with Happy Gilmore and Billy Madison. Big Daddy has a 75 percent audience approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes.

Despite some negative reviews, Big Daddy grossed more than $300 million in theaters.

“Hip… Hip-Hop… Hip-Hop-Anonymous…”

30. What About Bob?

Release Year: 1991

Written by Tom Schulman

Directed by Frank Oz

Starring Bill Murray, Richard Dreyfuss, Julie Hagerty, and Charlie Korsmo

In the film, Bob Wiley (Bill Murray), a man with various phobias and general fear of everything, goes on vacation with his psychiatrist Dr. Marvin (Richard Dreyfuss) to try to overcome his fears.

What About Bob? is definitely one of Bill Murray’s funniest movies. If you like Murray, you have to check out Caddyshack, Scrooged, A Very Murray Christmas, and some of his other great movies on Netflix!

Caddyshack also ranks in the 50 Best Movies on Netflix! 

Black Sheep

29. Black Sheep

Release Year: 1996

Written by Fred Wolf

Directed by Penelope Spheeris

Starring Chris Farley, David Spade, Tim Matheson, Gary Busey, Christine Ebersole

In Black Sheep, Al Donnelly (Tim Matheson) is running to be the Governor of Washington (the state, not D.C. — that position doesn’t exist there). Unfortunately, Al’s brother, Mike Donnelly (Chris Farley), is a huge screw-up. He can’t do anything right, and it’s having a negative aspect on his campaign. To ensure Mike doesn’t cost him the race, Al hires Steve Dodds (David Spade) to watch over Mike and keep him out of the public eye. That’s a lot easier said than done because Mike is basically a human tornado.

Black Sheep was produced by Lorne Michaels, as are a lot of movies starring Saturday Night Live stars.

It’s easy to draw a lot of similarities between Black Sheep and Tommy Boy. Both films star Chris Farley and David Spade. As far as I’m concerned, if it’s not broke, don’t fix it. Farley and Spade have great chemistry and are hilarious. It’d be stupid not to try to replicate a successful film like Tommy Boy.

28. How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days

Release Year: 2003 

Written by Brian Regan, Kristen Buckley, and Burr Steers

Directed by Donald Petrie

Starring Kate Hudson, Matthew McConaughey, Adam Goldberg, Kathryn Hahn, and Bebe Neuwirth

Jeannie Long and Michelle Alexander wrote a short story that inspired the film How to Lose A Guy in Ten Days.

How to Lose a Guy in Ten Days tells the story of Andie Anderson (Kate Hudson), a writer for upscale magazine, as she tries to write how-to guide to make a man break up with her in a little over a week to show mistakes people make during dating. The man she finds, Ben (Matthew McConaughey), just made a bet that he can make a girl fall in love with him in ten days.

If you like romantic comedies, you have to check out How to Lose A Guy in Ten Days. It is easily one of the best rom-coms available to stream on Netflix. The film also ranks in the top 20 of the 50 Best Romantic Movies on Netflix!

27. 10 Things I Hate About You

Release Year: 1999

Written by Karen McCullah Lutz and Kirsten Smith

Directed by Gil Junger 

Starring Julia Stiles, Heath Ledger, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Larisa Oleynik, Larry Miller, Andrew Keegan, David Krumholtz, and Susan May Pratt 

The film tells the story of several high schoolers living in Seattle, WA. Cameron (Joseph Gordon-Levitt), a new kid at school, tries to start dating Bianca (Larisa Oleynik), but Bianca’s parents won’t allow her to date until her older sister Kat (Julia Stiles) starts dating.

10 Things I Hate About You features a great, young cast including the late Heath Ledger, Julia Stiles, and Joseph Gordon-Levitt. If you like romantic comedies and have not seen this movie, it’s a must-watch on Netflix!

10 Things I Hate About You also ranks in the 50 Best Romantic Movies on Netflix along with many of the romantic comedies in this ranking.


26. Chef

Release Year: 2014

Written and Directed by Jon Favreau

Starring Jon Favreau, Sophia Vergara, John Leguizamo

Chef Carl Casper (Jon Favreau) used to be one of the hottest up-and-coming chefs in the cooking game. Unfortunately, he’s lost a bit of his style and flair while he’s been stuck in a dead-end restaurant.

After the biggest food critic in Los Angeles gives Casper a terrible review, he has a meltdown and loses his job. With nowhere to go, no job, and no one who will hire him, Casper starts a Cuban food truck, hoping to make enough money to make a living for himself.

While the movie is about a troubled chef trying to rekindle that flame and desire to cook, it’s also equally about a father’s relationship with his son. Over the years, Carl’s work, or so he thinks, has caused his young son a lot of pain because Carl hasn’t been there.

It doesn’t sound like the funniest movie in the world, but it’s full of tons of quirks and jokes. On top of that, it’s just a really good, beautiful movie. Jon Favreau definitely knows how to make a movie that people care about and find funny.

I haven’t come across anyone who doesn’t enjoy Chef, and I don’t think I ever will.

25. Minions

Release Year: 2015

Written by Brian Lynch

Directed by Kyle Balda and Pierre Coffin

Starring Sandra Bullock, Jon Hamm, Michael Keaton, Allison Janney, Steve Coogan, Jennifer Saunders, and Pierre Coffin, along with Geoffrey Rush, Steve Carell, Katie Mixon, Paul Thornley, Michael Beattie, and Hiroyuki Sanada

Minions is the first spinoff film from the Despicable Me film franchise.

In the film, three Minions, Bob, Kevin, and Stuart, begin helping the criminal masterminds Scarlet (Sandra Bullock) and Herb Overkill (Jon Hamm).

The film grossed more than $1.1 billion in theaters worldwide. Minions is the second-highest grossing animated film of all time at the moment, following Frozen. It’s also the 11th-highest-grossing movie ever, which is especially surprising considering the quality of the film.

That’s not to say Minions is bad; I quite like the movie, actually. It’s just that it’s definitely not on-par with some of the best movies and animated movies ever made.

24. Zack and Miri Make a Porno

To help get out of their financial rut, Zack and Miri enlist the help of their friends to make a porno called Star Whores! 

This movie is hilarious! You have to check it out if you like great comedies!

Zack and Miri Make a Porno is one the few movies written and directed by Kevin Smith sets outside of the View Askewniverse and outside of New Jersey, entirely. If you are looking for a great, touching comedy with tons of gross-out humor, this is the comedy for you!

23. The Secret Life of Pets

22. Love Actually 

Release Year: 2003 

Written and Directed by Richard Curtis 

Starring Hugh Grant, Liam Neeson, Colin Firth, Laura Linney, Emma Thompson, Alan Rickman, Keira Knightley, Martine McCutcheon, Bill Nighy, Rowan Atkinson, Martin Freeman, Andrew Lincoln  

Love Actually is a romantic comedy that tells the story of several individuals around London during the Christmas season as the try to find love.

This movie gets a lot of flak, but I think it is funny and enjoyable. I watch it every year around the holidays. The movie has such a great cast; it’s a solid movie to watch just for that reason. The cast of the film is rumored to be reuniting some time soon. Stay tuned for more information there.

Love Actually is also ranked in the Best Christmas Movies on Netflix and the Best Romantic Movies on Netflix!

21. The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou

Release Year: 2004

Written by Wes Anderson and Noah Baumbach

Starring Bill Murray, Owen Wilson, Cate Blanchett, Anjelica Huston, Willem Dafoe, Jeff Goldblum, Michael Gambon, and Bud Cort

The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou tells the story of Steve Zissou (Bill Murray), an oceanographer, who sets out on a new mission to kill the Jaguar Shark that ate his partner and colleague.

This movie is weird, but it is also really funny if you like this type of humor. Unlike many of Wes Anderson’s movies, The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou is not quite considered a critical success. The film received mixed reviews from critics. Audiences seemed to like the film more. If you like Wes Anderson movies, I think you will like this movie, though.

You should also check out Moonrise Kingdom, another Wes Anderson movie, which is also streaming on Netflix!

In Something’s Gotta Give, Harry (Jack Nicholson) and Erica (Diane Keaton), two people in their 50s, meet and try to make a relationship work, although they are not compatible at all. The film follows the comedy of ups and downs in their relationship.

Nancy Meyers, the writer and director of the film, has a huge fanbase and has been cranking out hits for a long time. I’m not a huge fan of her work, but I know many people like her movies, especially The Intern, It’s Complicated, The Holiday, and more!

Diane Keaton won the Golden Globe for Best Actress in a Comedy or Musical for her role in the film and was also nominated for an Oscar for Best Actress.

19. Frances Ha

Release Year: 2012

Written by Noah Baumbach, Greta Gerwig

Directed by Noah Baumbach

Starring Greta Gerwig, Mickey Sumner, Adam Driver, Michael Zegen

The free-spirited Frances Halliday (Greta Gerwig) bounces around from job to job and apartment to apartment while searching for satisfaction and the achievement of her dreams in New York City.

Other than Frances and her friends being generally entertaining and funny people, Frances’ personality gives a boost of joy and fun-loving energy into the film. At times, it feels like the film has no direction, which is intended, but the comedy in Frances’ decision-making keeps it funny and fresh.

I think everyone can relate to Frances’ struggles, especially younger viewers. Some people don’t want to be a part of the system, and they just want to do what they want to do. There’s definitely comedy in that philosophy!

18. Burn After Reading 

Release Year: 2008

Written and Directed by Joel and Ethan Coen

Starring George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Frances McDormand, Tilda Swinton, John Malkovich, Richard Jenkins J.K. Simmons, Elizabeth Marvel, and Kevin Sussman

Burn After Reading tells the story of a former CIA agent who shares damaging information on his computer after becoming fed up with the agency. His wife, by accident, downloads the information to a CD and leaves it at her gym where two gym workers find it and try to sell it.

Burn After Reading was nominated for two Golden Globes for Best Motion Picture- Comedy or Musical and Best Actress (Frances McDormand). It is only one of few Coen brothers movies not nominated for any Oscars in recent years.

If you like the movie, you should also check out No Country for Old Men or O’ Brother Where Art Thou?, which are both Coen brothers movies, as well.


17. Goon

Release Year: 2011

Written by Jay Baruchel and Evan Goldberg

Directed by Michael Dowse

Starring Seann William Scott, Jay Baruchel, Alison Pill, Liev Schrieber, Eugene Levy, Marc-André Grondin, Kim Coates

The film is based on Goon: The True Story of an Unlikely Journey Into Minor League Hockey written by Adam Frattasio and Doug Smith.

After beating the crap out of a hockey player who climbs into the stands during a fight, Doug (Seann William Scott) is asked to join a minor league hockey team as the team’s “enforcer,” the player who sets the tone, doesn’t take anything from anyone, and beats people up.

Goon is a little crude, a little raunchy, and an all-around good time! It’s easily the funniest hockey movie I’ve ever seen, and it’ my favorite performance of Seann William Scott’s as well. The film was co-written by Evan Goldberg and Jay Baruchel, so if you’re into their style of humor (Superbad, Pineapple Express, etc.), you’re definitely going to enjoy Goon.

Goon currently has a 82 percent certified fresh critic rating on Rotten Tomatoes and a 70 percent audience approval rating. The sequel, Goon: Last of the Enforcers, which is directed by Jay Baruchel, will be released in 2016.

16. Tropic Thunder

Release Year: 2008

Written by Ben Stiller, Justin Theroux, and Etan Cohen

Directed by Ben Stiller

Starring Ben Stiller, Robert Downey Jr., Jack Black, Tom Cruise, Jay Baruchel, Danny McBride, Steve Coogan, Bill Hader, Nick Nolte, and Brandon T. Jackson

In Tropic Thunder, the stars of a big-budget, action, war movie go into the jungle to capture a “real” quality to the film. Things get crazy when the actors get caught up with a well-armed village and heroin operation.

The film is a bit underrated, in my opinion. It’s raunchy, crude, and violent, and probably offensive to many. It’s really funny though, and it has a great cast with some seriously good comedians involved.

Tropic Thunder also ranks in the 50 Best Action and Adventure Movies on Netflix. It’s a bit out there with the comedy, but it is definitely worth the watch if you like these types of ridiculous movies.

15. Kung Fu Panda 

Release Year: 2008

Written by Jonathan Aibel and Glenn Berger

Directed by Mark Osborne and John Stevenson

Starring Jack Black, Dustin Hoffman, Seth Rogen, Angelina Jolie, Jackie Chan, Lucy Lui, Ian McShane, and David Cross

In Kung Fu Panda, Po (Jack Black), a giant panda who works at his dad’s noodle shop, decides to follow his destiny to become the Dragon Warrior and save the village from the infamous Tai-Lung, a snow leopard and expert in martial arts.

Kung Fu Panda also ranks in the 50 Best Kids Movies on Netflix! If you like animated movies, this is one of the best available to stream on Netflix!

Kung Fu Panda 3 is also streaming on Netflix right now. If you can find Kung Fu Panda 2 online, you have all the makings for a marathon! Hopefully, the second film will be available to stream on Netflix in the near future.

14. O’ Brother, Where Art Thou

Release Year: 2000

Written and Directed by Joel and Ethan Coen

Starring George Clooney, John Turturro, Tim Blake Nelson, Charles Durning, Michael Badalucco, John Goodman, and Holly Hunter

O’ Brother, Where Art Thou is loosely based on Homer’s The Odyssey and is a 1940s re-imagination of the story.

In the film, Ulysses Everett (George Clooney) and two other prisoners escape from a chain gang in Mississippi during the Great Depression. Ulysses tries to lead the men to “buried treasure” while also trying to get back to his family.

O’ Brother, Where Art Thou was nominated for two Academy Awards at 2001 Oscars for Best Cinematography and Best Adapted Screenplay.

13. Who Framed Roger Rabbit

Release Year: 1988

Written by Jeffrey Price, Peter Seaman

Directed by Robert Zemeckis

Starring Bob Hoskins, Christopher Lloyd, Charles Fleischer, Stubby Kaye, Joanna Cassidy

In a world where cartoon characters are very real and humans interact with humans, Private Detective Eddie Valiant (Bob Hoskins) is hired by Roger Rabbit to find out who framed him for a murder. As he digs deeper, Valiant, a toon-hater himself, realizes everything isn’t as it seems.

Who Framed Roger Rabbit is based on the novel Who Censored Roger Rabbit? written by Gary K. Wolf and published in 1981.

With legendary director Robert Zemeckis, executive producer Steven Spielberg, and animator extraordinaire Richard Williams working on the same film, it’s bound to be great. As is the case with Who Framed Roger Rabbit, which also won three Oscars (Best Visual Effects, Best Sound Effects, and Best Editing).

Although Who Framed Roger Rabbit had a huge budget for the 1980s ($70 million), the film still grossed more than $330 million worldwide.

12. Cool Runnings

Release Year: 1993

Written by Lynn Siefert, Tommy Swerdlow, Michael Goldberg

Directed by Jon Turteltaub

Starring John Candy, Leon, Doug E. Doug, Rawle D. Lewis, and Malik Yoba

Cool Runnings is based on the true story of the Jamaican bobsled team who competed in the 1988 Olympics. The story has been changed and exaggerated for the screen.

In the film, a group of Jamaican sprinters who could not qualify for the Summer Olympics and Jamaican Olympic Team begin training as bobsledders for the Winter Olympics with a former United States Olympic bobsledder.

Cool Runnings is one of my favorite movies. It has tons of great jokes and quotable lines. The film also ranks in the 50 Best Movies on Netflix, as well.


11. Amelie

Release Year: 2001

Written by Guillaume Laurant and Jean-Pierre Jeunet

Directed by Jean-Pierre Jeunet

Starring Audrey Tautou, Mathieu Kassovitz, Rufus

Sheltered as a child, Amelie wants to experience the world and make the lives of those around her better. After finding a box in her apartment belonging to someone who lived in the apartment many years before her, Amelie sets out on a journey to return the box to that person. Along the way, she helps more people, but most importantly, she helps herself.

At this point, I think we can say Amelie is the funniest foreign film on Netflix, although there are a ton of foreign films on the service that don’t get the respect they deserve. Amelie, however, broke the mold to become very popular in America.

Although Amelie went back to France empty-handed, Amelie was nominated for five Academy Awards, including Best Original Screenplay and Best Foreign Language Film.

10. Wet Hot American Summer

Release Year: 2001

Directed by David Wain

Starring: Amy Poehler, Bradley Cooper, Michael Ian Black, Paul Rudd, Janeane Garofolo, David Hyde Pierce, Elizabeth Banks, H. Jon Benjamin, Judah Friedlander, Nina Hellman, Ken Marino, Zak Orth, David Hyde Pierce, Joe LoTruglio, Christopher Meloni, A.D. Miles, Marguerite Moreau, Marisa Ryan, Molly Shannon, Michael Showalter and Kevin Sussman

Wet Hot American Summer is set on the last day of Camp Firewood in 1981. After a summer jam-packed with fun and ridiculous hijinks, the campers and, most importantly, the camp counselors want to finish off their summer the right way, especially so they have something to talk about when they reunite at 9:30 a.m. on the same day in 1991.

Written by David Wain and Michael Showalter, Wet Hot American Summer was not widely respected or well-acclaimed when it was released in 2001. However, as the years have passed, Wet Hot American Summer has become one of the biggest cult movies of all time.

In my experience, there’s no fanbase better than the Wet Hot fandom. Those fans are passionate, and they’re incredibly excited for the new Wet Hot American Summer miniseries coming to Netflix this summer.

Everyone is coming back for Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp. It’s going to be fun, and hopefully, it will feature a lot of sweater fondling.

Despite this movie not being all that popular, it’s an easy addition to the 50 Best Comedy Movies on Netflix!

9. Superbad 

Release Year: 2008 

Written by Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg 

Directed by Greg Mottola 

Starring  Jonah Hill, Michael Cera, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Emma Stone, Seth Rogen, Bill Hader, Joe Lo Truglio, and Martha MacIsaac

Superbad is our most recent addition to the 50 Best Comedy Movies on Netflix. The film was released on Netflix on Feb. 4. Superbad was Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg’s big break as writers. The film was incredibly successful financially, as well.

In the movie, Seth (Jonah Hill) and Evan (Michael Cera) are seniors in high school and best friends. The pair also happens to not be that popular. To help them become “experienced” before heading off to different colleges in the fall, Seth and Evan try to get with their crushes at their last high school party.

Sausage Party, the newest movie from Evan Goldberg and Seth Rogen, is coming to Netflix at the end of February. We will also be adding the movie to the ranking of 50 Best Comedy Movies on Netflix, as well!

Hot Fuzz

8. Hot Fuzz

Release Year: 2007

Written by Edgar Wright, Simon Pegg

Directed by Edgar Wright

Starring Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, Martin Freeman

After proving too good for the London police force, Nicholas Angel (Simon Pegg) is forced to transfer to the “most perfect” village in all of England — Sandford, Gloucestershire. Seriously, Sandford wins “Village of the Year” in England like every year. Angel is also promoted to Sergeant. Shortly after he arrives in Sandford, several mysterious deaths start happening. As Nick and his partner Danny Butterman (Nick Frost) continues to search, the more suspicious the deaths start to look. Is someone in the town responsible for all the deaths? Angel tries to find out, despite the blowback from the residents.

Pegg and Frost also starred in Shaun of the Dead, the zombie spoof which Wright also directed, prior to making Hot Fuzz. Both films have a very similar, yet unique, tone. Brits are famous for their dry, sarcastic, witty humor, and Hot Fuzz is another example of that, with a flair for the dramatic and goofy.

Hot Fuzz was a huge hit worldwide, and it’s even got more popular over the years with the help of services like Netflix and the success of the group’s other films, Shaun of the Dead and The World’s End.

7. Sausage Party 

Release Year: 2016

Written by Kyle Hunter, Ariel Shaffir, Seth Rogen, and Evan Goldberg

Directed by Conrad Vernon and Greg Tiernan

Starring Seth Rogen, Jonah Hill, Kristen Wiig, James Franco, Bill Hader, Craig Robinson, Danny McBride, Michael Cera, Selma Hayek, Nick Kroll, Paul Rudd, Edward Norton, and David Krumholtz

In the movie, Frank Weinerton (Seth Rogen), a hot dog with big dreams, tries to lead a group of his friends and fellow foods out of the grocery store and into the “Great Beyond.”

After watching this movie, I can’t believe a studio let this movie be made. It’s hilarious; don’t get me wrong. It just takes great vision to the potential of a movie like this and then executes that vision. It’s great work by everyone involved. If you like Rogen’s other movies, you will definitely like Sausage Party. 

Sausage Party is one of the best new comedies streaming on Netflix from 2016. The film joins Finding Dory and Zootopia as the two other animated comedies from 2016 in the ranking of the 50 Best Comedy Movies on Netflix.

LONDON – MARCH 10: American actress Renee Zellweger, British actor Hugh Grant, British pop star Geri Halliwell and British actor Colin Firth arrive at the UK premiere of the film ‘Bridget Jones’ Diary’ at the Empire Cinema Leicester Square on March 10, 2001 in London.

6. Bridget Jones’s Diary

Release Year: 2001

Written by Helen Fielding, Andrew Davies, Richard Curtis

Directed by Sharon Maguire

Starring Renee Zellweger, Colin Firth, Hugh Grant, Gemma Jones, Jim Broadbent, Embeth Davidtz

Bridget Jones (Renee Zellweger) is a single woman in her 30s who works at a mid-level employee at a book publishing company.

This is her story, and Bridget hopes it will end up finding the man of her dreams.

Bridget Jones’s Diary is based on Helen Fielding’s book of the same name. Fielding also had a hand in writing the screenplay. 

Zellweger is really good as Bridget Jones. Based on her really good performance, she was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Actress in a Leading Role.

5. The Big Short

Release Year: 2015 

Written by Adam McKay and Charles Randolph

Directed by Adam McKay 

Starring Brad Pitt, Ryan Gosling, Steve Carell, and Christian Bale

The Big Short tells the story of four influential people who bet against big banks and the housing market prior to the market collapse in the 2000s.

The film is based onThe Big Short: Inside the Doomsday Machine written by Michael Lewis.

The Big Short was nominated for five Oscars at the 2016 Academy Awards and won the Oscar for Best Adapted Screenplay.

Overall, The Big Short doesn’t have the number of jokes and laughs as many of the movies included in the ranking, but it is hilarious. And, it’s one of the best movies to hit theaters in the last few years.

Finding Dory

LONDON, ENGLAND – JULY 10: Ellen DeGeneres arrives for the UK Premiere of ‘Finding Dory’ at Odeon Leicester Square on July 10, 2016 in London, England. (Photo by Dave J Hogan/Dave Hogan/Getty Images )

4. Finding Dory

Release Year: 2016

Written by Andrew Stanton and Victoria Strouse

Directed by Andrew Stanton and Angus MacLane

Starring Ellen DeGeneres, Albert Brooks, Hayden Rolence, Diane Keaton, Eugene Levy, Ed O’Neill, Kaitlin Olson, and Ty Burrell

There’s no way we could keep Finding Dory out of our ranking of the 50 Best Comedy Movies on Netflix. Finding Dory is the sequel to the hit Pixar movie Finding Nemo from 2003. Unfortunately, Finding Nemo is not streaming on Netflix right now.

In the film, Dory (Ellen DeGeneres) goes on a quest to find her family, but because of her memory issues, she has a very hard time. Nemo (Hayden Rolence) and Marlin (Albert Brooks) try to find Dory and help her find her parents.

Personally, I think Zootopia was a little bit funnier than Finding Dory, but each of the Disney movies deserves a spot in our ranking of the 50 Best Comedy Movies on Netflix!

3. Zootopia

Release Year: 2016 

Written by Phil Johnston and Jared Bush

Directed by Rich Moore and Byron Howard

Starring Ginnifer Goodwin, Jason Bateman, Idris Elba, Jenny Slate, Nate Torrence, Bonnie Hunt, Don Lake, Tommy Chong, J. K. Simmons, Octavia Spencer, Alan Tudyk, and Shakira

Zootopia is the first movie of the Pay-TV deal between Netflix and Disney. More new Disney movies will be added to the streaming service soon!

The film is also one of the best animated comedies of 2016. Zootopia grossed more than a $1 billion in theaters worldwide.

In the film, a rabbit Judy Hopps (Ginnifer Goodwin) makes history by becoming the first rabbit on the Zootopia police force. Despite being one of the best and most capable officers, she is only on parking duty. Judy is forced to work her way into the job.

Moonrise Kingdom

2. Moonrise Kingdom 

Release Year: 2012

Written by Wes Anderson and Roman Coppola

Directed by Wes Anderson

Starring Bruce Willis, Edward Norton, Bill Murray, Frances McDormand, Tilda Swinton, Jason Schwartzman, Bob Balaban, Jared Gilman, Kara Hayward

In Moonrise Kingdom, a pair of young lovers, played by Kara Hayward and Jared Gilman, run away from her home and his boy scout troop near a summer camp on an island in New England. Search parties set to find the young lovers.

Like most Wes Anderson movies, Moonrise Kingdom has an amazing cast with huge stars like Edward Norton, Bruce Willis, Frances McDormand, Tilda Swinton, and Jason Schwartzman, in main roles in the film. Moonrise Kingdom also features Anderson’s signature techniques, like long tracking shots, symmetrical framing, and of course, the eccentric style choices.

Moonrise Kingdom is probably my favorite Wes Anderson movie, although all of them are really good. The film was nominated for an Oscar for Best Screenplay at the 2013 Academy Awards and a Golden Globe for Best Comedy in 2013, as well.

If more of Wes Anderson’s movies were on Netflix, they’d also be ranked in the 50 Best Comedy Movies on Netflix! Let’s get some more!

NEW YORK – APRIL 23: (U.S. TABS AND HOLLYWOOD REPORTER OUT) Comedian/writer Tina Fey and actress Lindsay Lohan attend a private screening of ‘Mean Girls’ on April 23, 2004 at Loews Lincoln Square Theater, in New York City. (Photo by Paul Hawthorne/Getty Images)

1. Mean Girls

Release Year: 2004

Written by Tina Fey

Directed by Mark Waters

Starring Lindsay Lohan, Rachel McAdams, Tina Fey, Tim Meadows, Amy Poehler, Ana Gasteyer

After growing up in Africa with her zoologist parents, Cady Heron (Lindsey Lohan) is dropped in the American high school scene full of cliques, rumors, and non-stop drama. Cady, along with the help of her new friends, takes on the mission of bringing down the Plastics, who are the ultra-popular girls who run the school.

Mean Girls is loosely based on Rosalind Wiseman’s book Queen Bees and Wannabes: Helping Your Daughter Survive Cliques, Gossip, Boyfriends and Other Realities of Adolescence. Tina Fey used it as reference for drafting the screenplay, though the film is very different.

Per usual with movies written by former Saturday Night Live stars, SNL creator Lorne Michaels produced Mean Girls, and former SNL stars Amy Poehler, Tim Robbins, and Ana Gasteyer appear in the movie alongside Lohan and Fey.

Rachel McAdams, Amanda Seyfried, Lacey Chabert, Lizzy Caplan, Daniel Franzese and Jonathan Bennett round out a great cast.
