10 Good Comedy Movies

Tuesday, December 21 by Jacob Quinn

Finding 10 good comedy movies isn’t an especially difficult task. The comedy genre is one of the more prolific genres, and several quality films are released every year. These movies aren’t really masterpieces, but all of them are totally solid.

  1. “After Hours” is an unusual comedy about a man who gets caught up in an adventure after a blind date. The film is truly strange, and the film is somewhat surreal.
  2. “High Fidelity” was one of the main movies that introduced the world to Jack Black, but he plays second fiddle to John Cusack in this movie. It’s about the romantic life of a record store owner. Most films starring Jack Black are good comedy movies, and this is no exception.
  3. “Forgetting Sarah Marshall” is a comedy about a guy trying to get over his ex girlfriend. He goes on a tropical vacation and meets a lovely character played by Mila Kunis. This movie is not perfect, but if you're looking for good comedy movies, you should give it a try.
  4. “Bowfinger” makes this list of ten good comedy movies partly because it stars Eddie Murphy and Steve Martin. It’s about an independent filmmaker trying to make a movie using secretly captured footage of a famous movie star.
  5. “Chasing Amy” is one of the better comedy movies about a guy who falls in love with a lesbian. The movie is great fun and often thought provoking.
  6. “The Money Pit” is a forgotten film from the 1980s about a couple who moves into a new house. The house looks good on the surface, but it starts falling apart around them. If you're looking for good comedy movies, you should definitely give this film a try.
  7. “Blades of Glory” is a goofy comedy about two rival male figure skaters. Will Ferrell is especially hilarious in this movie, and it totally deserves its spot on this list of ten good comedy movies.
  8. “Legally Blonde” is an underrated movie starring Reese Witherspoon about a ditsy blonde overachiever. It’s a little silly and simple, but much better than many people suggest, and it's a natural fit for this list of good comedy movies.
  9. “See No Evil, Hear No Evil” is a classic comedy starring Richard Pryor and Gene Wilder. It’s about a deaf guy and a blind guy who team up and get into an adventure together.
  10. "Liar Liar' is a fun little comedy starring Jim Carrey. This movie is a fantasy about a guy who loses the ability to tell lies and all the trouble it causes him.
