Netflix can definitely be your saviour on any gloomy day. If you are feeling really low and need to laugh out your stress, this is what we suggest — grab a tub of popcorn, sit back on the couch and watch some of the best comedies that the streaming site has to offer.
"Goon", "The Big Lebowski", "Billy Madison", "Fargo", "My Best friend's Wedding", "Legally Blonde", "Beverly Hills Cop" are among a huge stock of blockbusters that will surely tickle your funny bone and get you rolling on the floor laughing.
50 First Dates
Starring Drew Barrymore, Adam Sandler and Rob Schneider, this 2004 film is a sweet romantic comedy. This is undoubtedly one of Adam's best movies where he is trying to impress a woman, who suffers memory loss. The way Adam recreates the same scene everyday over 50 first dates, is what makes this film really funny.
It is safe to say that "The Interview" is indeed a great movie, packed with entertainment and funny jokes. Written and directed by Evan Goldberg and Seth Rogen, this 2004 flick revolves around late night talk show host Dave Skylark (James Franco) and his producer Aaron Rapoport (Seth Rogen), who are offered the opportunity of a lifetime — a one-on-one interview with Kim Jong-Un (Randall Park), the supreme leader of North Korea.
Based on a book written by Amanda Brown by the same name, the film stars Reese Witherspoon as Elle Woods, who after being dumped by her boyfriend for being immature, decides to follow him to law school to prove him wrong.
Beverly Hills Cop
Starring none other than the humour king himself — Eddie Murphy -- this 1984 action comedy is one of the funniest movies in the action genre. "Beverly Hills Cop" follows Axel Foley (Eddie Murphy), the most badass cop in Detroit, who fakes a vacation in Beverly Hills to solve the murder of a friend.
Yet another Adam Sandler comedy, where he plays Billy Madison (Adam Sandler), a 27-year-old idiot, who has to redo his entire education starting at kindergarten and get his high school diploma, in order to take over the family international hotel business after his father retires. And because this movie is really silly, it's really funny.
Do we need to say anything else --- this was one the funniest movies of 2000s, in which every line is nothing less than a funny joke. Starring Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson, this 2001 flick revolves around the life of Derek Zoolander (Ben Stiller), one of the hottest male models in the game, who after having discovered Jacobim Mugatu's (Will Ferrell) plan to kill the Prime Minister of Malaysia, stops him with the help of his rival Hansel (Owen Wilson) and a snoopy fashion journalist Matilda (Christine Taylor).
Given the success of the film, the team has decided to make a comeback with Zoolander 2, which will be released on 12 February, 2016.
The Big Lebowski
One of the most popular cult films starring Jeff Bridges, John Goodman, Julianne Moore, Steve Buscemi and Phillip Seymour Hoffman is about Jeff "The Dude" Lebowski (Jeff Bridges), who gets caught up in a kidnapping gone wrong after he's mistaken for another Jeff Lebowski, who happens to be a millionaire. Written and Directed by Joel and Ethan Coen, the film was released in 1998 and is considered to be the most entertaining movies by the Coen brothers ever.
The Naked Gun: From the Files of Police Squad!
Sadly, not the kind of comedies we will get to watch anymore. The Zucker brothers just knew the trick to the game to the T. This 1988 film starring Leslie Nielson and Priscilla Presley is nothing less than a laughter ride with the entire film being stacked up with jokes one after the other. We would say, this was indeed the funniest and most entertaining movies ever made.
A Woody Allen gem, this 1977 blockbuster is about a neurotic stand-up comedian, who struggles to get over and move on from his break up with the quirky Annie Hall (Diane Keaton). Well, we won't say much, just watch it to know what makes it one the best in the category.
A little raunchy, a little rudimentary, but "Goon" is definitely funny. The film is based on "Goon: The True Story of an Unlikely Journey Into Minor League Hockey" written by Adam Frattasio and Doug Smith. It follows the story of Doug (Seann William Scott), who after beating the crap out of a hockey player, who climbs into the stands during a fight, 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.
