Finding some good funny movies to watch with a girl can be a difficult task at times. We want to impress the object of our desires with our sophistication while not choosing something that will put us to sleep during the opening credits. Unless your date is into action films or geek movies, finding a good film can be an endeavor. Here are a few suggestions to get your creative juices flowing.

  1. “Easy A” Think of this good funny movie to watch with a girl as a kind of reboot of a classical piece of literature, that book being “The Scarlet Letter.” Don’t worry if you don’t get it immediately. The lead character, played by Emma Stone, pretty much tells you that at several points during the movie. In this update, her character is accused by her peers of being a slut, but instead on fighting it, she turns it into her new reputation to see how far she can go.

  2. Shakespeare in Love” Not only is this a good funny movie to watch with a girl, but it’s also one of the most clever films released about an author that put us to sleep in high school. Winner of seven Oscars, it tells story of a young, perpetually broke William Shakespeare trying to write the one play that will really start his career rolling and the young woman who goes to great lengths to be in that play despite the ban on women in the theater.

  3. “A Knight’s Tale” Despite the fact that the movie’s lead, Heath Ledger, has passed away, it’s still good funny movie to watch with a girl because it’s all about knights in armor. Ledger plays a young squire who makes up a knighthood for himself in order to compete in jousting tournaments and win fame and fortune. It’s also the only medieval movie that incorporates Queen’s “We Will Rock You” in a very creative way.

  4. burlesqueThis is the best of both worlds in terms of finding a good funny movie to watch with a girl. Not only is there some great dancing and singing (think “Chicago” meets “Moulin Rouge!”), but it’s about a burlesque show, so you can expect to see a lot of skin (although no nudity). The movie is about a young girl (Christina Aguilera) who heads out to Hollywood to make it in the big time (yeah, it’s not what you’d call original, but this is Hollywood we’re talking about) and about the struggles both her and the club’s owner (Cher) have to go through in order to succeed.

  5. “Love and Other Drugs” Certainly the most recent film on the list, it’s also a great mix of romance and some serious hardcore nudity from both its male and female leads (Jake Gyllenhaal and Anne Hathaway). If your date is comfortable with the nudity, it’s a great story about a womanizing drug representative who meets the girl of his dreams, only to discover that she’s hiding a very big secret. It’s both sexy and emotionally satisfying. Heck, what more can you ask from a film?

  6. “The Princess Bride” Who can forget one of the best fairy tales ever put to film. Not only is this a good funny movie to watch with a girl, it’s also a swashbuckling adventure of a pirate who's not who he seems to be, a heartfelt tale of a young woman who is mourning her lover and a revenge drama of a man who will stop at nothing to get what he wants. It’s become a classic since its initial release, so while your girl has probably already seen it, it’s a film made for repeat viewings.
