10 Best Funny Movie Trailers

Friday, December 3 by Nicole Dales

Looking for the 10 best funny movie trailers? Movies are great. Some make you smile, some make you cry, and some make you angry. But after a long day of work, sometimes you just want a movie that makes you laugh harder than you have ever laughed before. Here are the top ten comedy movies, in no particular order:

  1. "Tommy Boy"- This movie, from 1995, is still hysterical today. This movie follows Tommy, a man immature in every way possible. Tommy suddenly loses his father, and learns a lot of lessons in the process of dealing. Although this movie was not favored among critics, general audience members seemed to love it!
  2. "Monty Python and the Holy Grail"- This movie is even older than the one before, dating back to 1975. It’s got the classic British dry humor though, as the movie spoofs the legends of King Arthur’s quest to find the Holy Grail. This movie is a staple, and everyone should see it at least once.
  3. "Office Space"- Anyone who has ever worked an office job can understand this movie. The main character hates his office job and his life until one day, he goes under hypnotherapy. The doctor who put him under suddenly dies, leaving him in this very happy state. What happens afterwards-well you just need to watch to understand.
  4. "Dumb and Dumber"- This movie, filled with slapstick comedy and gross humor, follows two idiotic best friends. Need we say more?
  5. "Airplane"- Even in 1980, people were making fun of the stupid high drama disaster movies. This is a spoof, beloved by most and full of laugh out loud comedy.
  6. "Caddyshack"- This movie takes place at a ritzy golf club. A couple of local hooligans come in and take part in the golf tournament. They end up causing a lot of trouble along the way. There is even a gopher!
  7. "Liar Liar"- The main character lies like there is no tomorrow. That is, until his son makes a wish on his birthday candles that his dad won’t lie anymore. Suddenly, this lawyer can only say the truth and says everything that comes to mind!
  8. "There’s Something About Mary"- When a sixteen year old boy blows his chance with the girl he has a huge crush on, he thinks it’s over. Fourteen years later, he manages to track her down and gives it another go. It’s not as easy as it seems and makes for a very funny movie!
  9. "American Pie"- This is a classic sex reference filled teenage comedy. So many additions have been made and this movie is referenced in social contexts so often that it’s an important movie for everyone to see just for the sake of understanding our culture today.
  10. "Blades of Glory"- Two men who ice skate competitively and hate each other end up having to ice skate in Paris. And, they skate every minute in the tight sparkly body suits. It makes for a great comedy.

All of these movies will help you relax, unwind and chuckle the night away. Enjoy!
