What turns a funny story into a great comedy film? For starter, its humor needs to be timeless – making the film remain relevant for years to come. These are the kind of films that almost everyone talks about; you’ll be left with a massive case of FOMO if you haven’t watched them yet. Lucky for you, we have compiled a list of breathtakingly hilarious films that will have you laughing long after watching them. 

Here are five great comedy films from the last century and this one:

1. The Hangover (2009)

What would you do if you were celebrating your friend’s bachelor party and ended up losing the groom? The Hangover answers just that through its clever script. Just two days before his wedding, Doug and three of his friends drive to Las Vegas for the bachelor party. After a long night of partying, the three groomsmen wake up the next morning with no recollection of anything that happened.

Even worse, they have lost the groom, Doug. With almost no time to spare, the three are left with no choice but to retrace their steps. Watch as they beat obstacle after obstacle to save their friend’s wedding. The film is another of the really great comedy films, an artistic representation of the saying “what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas.”

2. Four Weddings and a Funeral (1994)

A loveable Englishman and his friends seem to have some tough luck when it comes to love. Charles, however, seems to gain some luck when he crosses paths with Carrie, an American at a wedding. They have a strong bond and chemistry, but the timing never seems to be right. She goes back to the states leaving Tom worried that his luck might not have changed.

The movie takes its audience through the two crossing paths accidentally some more times – at a handful of nuptials, a single funeral. This premise makes it a definite classic for rom-com lovers.

3. Shaolin Soccer (2001)

Shaolin soccer is what happens when you mix comedy, action, and Kung Fu. The movie follows a young man who never seems to find a place where he belongs. He believes that all the world’s problems could be solved through Kung Fu.

Upon learning of a soccer match with $1 million as the grand prize, he teams up with a band of misfits – six of his friends who had been Kung Fu masters in their early ages. The hilarious film widens its audience’s imagination of what could happen on a soccer pitch, from clothes being blown away to balls being kicked at 100 miles per hour.

4. Safety Last (1923)

The story follows a young man who moves to New York with hopes of realizing the American dream while supporting his girlfriend. He soon discovers the sad truth that making it in the city that never sleeps could be harder than he first thought. To his luck, he learns of a store manager that’s willing to pay $1,000 to anyone who can draw customers to his store.

Attracted by the offer, he convinces his friend to do a building-climbing stunt, after which they could split the profits if they can draw customers to the shop. To his dismay, his friend gets in trouble, and he has to proceed with the stunt himself, despite having little to no knowledge about climbing buildings. Each antic from the main character will have you laughing and letting go of any acrophobia you have.  Is this a great comedy film? We think so

5. Mrs. Doubtfire (1993)

A father, Daniel Hilliard, loses custody of his children, which he is unwilling to accept. He hatches a plan with his brother help to stay close to his kids. The plan involves him dressing as an older British woman and getting hired by his ex-wife as the kids’ nanny.

The plot eventually works out. He ends up bonding with his kids and learning how to be a better parent. Eventually, living a double life gets him in trouble when he has to be in two places at once.

Engaging, hilarious, and thought-provoking, each of these great comedy films will chase away any stress you are going through. Their unique storylines and clever plots place them in the “Mt. Rushmore” of great comedy films.  


Hope you have a ball watching these screen gems!
