- The Whole Nine Yards (2000) is light but fun. - Grosse Pointe Blank (1997) is just brilliant. - Thank You For Smoking (2005) is outstanding, smart satire.

Great movie!

Underrated and never shown enough


dougielou

It’s great because the same plot twist character plays in both the English and American version!


LikeThePigeons

Right? I absolutely love them both and thought it was so cool that they got to reprise their role.


dougielou

The American version of truly Tracy Morgan’s best work 😂 but yes both are so great

Game Night The In-Laws (1979) Midnight Run The Nice Guys Good Morning, Vietnam My Cousin Vinny The Truman Show Stranger Than Fiction


NoHallett

Great list - I really expected Game Night to be stupid, but it was actually really clever


buttermuseum

Jessie Plemons is hilarious in this. Such a small role, but he stole every scene he was in.


Shadowfaps69

He makes the movie imo


Loathestorm

Game Night is a great suggestion for this inquiry.


zachrg

Bridesmaids


homeless_photogrizer

yep. Jon Hamm was hysterical.


teewinotone

The In-Laws (1979) is one of my favorites of all time!


mintttberrycrunch

The In-Laws is my Dad's favorite movie. None of my friends have seen or heard of it. Glad to see it getting some recognition ( Also Midnight Run is one of my Mom's favorite movies, but it does get appropriate praise)


The-HII

Truman Show is just so rewatchable tor sum reason. If anyone knows why please share

jsmalltri

Awesome. I remember seeing this in an old theater in Boston. I've never laughed so hard. "Bastard people" killed me.


Bobbyperu1

Was it the Brattle?


jsmalltri

Not Brattle, cool place though. I can't recall the name but IIRC it was in Waltham (I was living in Watertown at the time). The place had stadium style seating with old red velour seats. Definitely an old theater, but that made it really cool. Mid-late 1990s.


Bobbyperu1

I know the place you're talking about. Saw Hedwig there in the early 2000's. Can't remember the name tho

seattlebouncer

He's amazing! The exchange with Wendy makes me shake with laughter. Otto: Don't call me stupid. Wendy : Why on earth not? Otto : Oh, you English are *so* superior, aren't you? Well, would you like to know what you'd be without us, the good ol' U.S. of A. to protect you? I'll tell you. The smallest fucking province in the Russian Empire, that's what! So don't call me stupid, lady. Just thank me. Wendy : Well, *thank* you for popping in and protecting us. Otto : If it wasn't for us, you'd all be speaking *German!* Singing "Deutschland, Deutschland über alles..."


4LostSoulsinaBowl

Wendy's line right before that always cracks me up: "My father was in the secret service, Mr. Manfrdjedsinjin..."


seattlebouncer

Wendy is such a snob and I loved every minute of her!

Life Aquatic is in my top 3, for sure. Love the writing, love the sets, love the music, love the actors/performances.

Life Aquatic is one of my favorites of Wes Anderson as well it just has this intriguing charm Wes really can form a great artistic world.

The Death of Stalin

shakycrae

Or even better, the series The Thick of It. Don't know how it translates to someone not from the UK, but it is brutal, scarily accurate satire

If you like The Death of Stalin you probably will like JoJo Rabbit.

Haven’t seen the first one but The Nice Guys is great


auurevoir

"In Bruges" is just elite. It goes so smoothly, you won't even notice it.


kaptaincorn

It's a rare dramatic comedy too. Everyone forgets the drama


SalamanderFun1074

The purgatory theme is also *chefs kiss*


boeckman

Oof. One prominent element of the drama, I could do without. I mean, it’s necessary to the plot, but it’s the reason I don’t want to watch it again, good as it is.


quirked

Ryan Gosling's pain scream alone makes it worth the watch.

megmarie22502

Great list! To add to that I would recommend Shaun of the Dead as well. One of the funniest films I’ve ever seen.


ISwallowedALego

Death to Smoochy


Bes1208

Yes! 1000%


invisiblecows

Death to Smoochy is one of my favorite dark comedies; I will never understand why it gets so much hate (e.g. 42% on rotten tomatoes). Robin Williams is just insanely believable as an evil, unhinged children's TV show host.


cylonlover

Forgetting Sarah Marshall. That one really surprised me! And The Darjeeling Limited. I really like those movies where every scene and every character stands out and it's difficult to say why the h.. This and that is so funny but it is! Oh, and I also love Trading Places, to death, but that's another story quite.

Election is maybe the greatest comedy of ever made. Whip sharp screenplay


donkeychaser1

+10 for four lions OP


4little_weirdos

Four Lions is great! I never hear anyone talk about it..


headcoatee

I was coming to say In The Loop. Ianucci films are some of the sharpest and funniest.

The Thick of It is superior though

Dr. Strangelove. A comedy about nuclear war and the ruin of the world. Little Miss Sunshine Anderson’s Moonrise Kingdom and Grand Budapest Hotel. Arsenic and Old Lace. About some sweet little old ladies who happen to be serial killers. If you’re willing to consider horror/comedy, there’s Ginger Snaps. It’s horror/comedy/tragedy that takes character development seriously.


charlesdexterward

Seconding Arsenic and Old Lace! The only thing holding it back from perfection is that the Broadway producers wouldn’t let them have Boris.

Le Dîner de Cons, the French film from 1998 remade as the awful Dinner for Schmucks (don’t watch that). The original is laugh out loud funny.


clarstar5

Laughed out loud at the trailer, defo gona give this one a watch


DubUbasswitmyheadman

I'll watch this as soon as I can, it sounds hilarious. I really like the films by Jean-Pierre Jeunet & Marc Caro. The first feature film they did was Delicatessen. After they stopped working together Jean-Pierre directed Amélie which got Oscar nominations, and won a bunch of international movie awards.


4LostSoulsinaBowl

I really enjoyed the original, but the American remake is fantastic in its own right. It gets shit on a lot, but Carell was such a great idiot. Great performances from Jemaine Clement and David Walliams as well


homeless_photogrizer

the remake is awful? *hard* disagree. it's hilarious!


Vehicle_Efficient

What We Do In The Shadows (I know the series is a little more known, but watch the movie!)


Never_rarely

I can’t believe no one has said Superbad. Greatest comedy film of all time and no, it’s not stupid comedy. It’s genuine, real comedy. Don’t care, watch it. Other good ones: Palm Springs Zombieland 10 Things I Hate About You (romcom) About Time (romcom) Singin in the Rain 40 year old virgin Booksmart (basically Superbad with girls)


headcoatee

Bernie is one of my all-time favorites. Directed by Richard Linklater. Stars Jack Black and Shirley MacLaine, based on the true story of a super-nice, pillar of the community kind of guy who cares for a cranky old lady until finally pushed to the limit. King of Comedy is an older one, a hilarious classic. DeNiro plays a complete dork who pesters the hell out of his role model (Jerry Lewis). A young Sandra Bernhard is in it too. Adaptation, directed by Spike Jonze. Stars Nic Cage, Meryl Streep, Tilda Swinton, Chris Cooper. The less I say about this, the better. It's off-the-wall in the best way. If you like Being John Malkovich, you'll like this. Have you seen Parasite? By now, seems like everyone has, but I'll add it here since it's also excellent.


NotSoSnarky

Easy A Singin in the Rain 10 Things I Hate About You (1999)

LividLager

Bubble Boy. Criminally underrated.. and the original trailer made it look like shit.


redjedia

I would not class either “Borat” movie as a not-stupid comedy. There’s clearly thought and effort that goes into them both (even bad Baron Cohen productions have *that* going for them), but most of what they mine comedy from is very lowbrow by design. Anyway, if you’re a fan of 1980s hair metal, I’d recommend “This Is Spinal Tap.”


Public_Autodidact

Dr Strangelove. Being There.


ECDoppleganger

Fleabag is excellent. Impeccable taste, Internet stranger. Comedy films I've enjoyed: Clueless, Little Miss Sunshine (which is more a comedy-drama, but definitely funny), Grand Budapest Hotel, Kiss Kiss Bang Bang/The Nice Guys, The Princess Bride, Raising Arizona, The Big Lebowski, any of Edgar Wright's first 4-5 movies that you haven't seen (since you mentioned Hot Fuzz). Many of these are a little bit hybrid with other genres, but then so are a few that you mentioned, so hopefully that would be fine

This is gonna sound like a troll, but seriously, Senior Year on Netflix. The whole movie is extremely out of pocket with the humor. Everything funny that happens is really unexpected and makes you go "wtf??" But in a really funny way. Comedy is my least favorite cinematic genre, so when my bf asked if we could watch it, I was skeptical to say the least. By the end, I was almost in tears. Hope this helps!
