The Best Comedy Movies on Netflix Right Now

1. Monty Python and the Holy Grail 

It sucks that some of the shine has been taken off Holy Grail by its own overwhelming ubiquity. 

2. Monty Python’s Life of Brian 

Pretty much made on George Harrison’s dime and considered, even if apocryphally, by the legendary comedy troupe to be their best film 

3. The Jerk 

Here is the pale image of Steve Martin’s face, about to invite us into a melodramatic series of flashbacks concerning his character’s tragic life.

4. Groundhog Day 

A more conventional film would have love resolve the chronological predicament, but instead.

5. Coming To America 

If this movie consisted of the barbershop scenes inside of My-T-Sharp and nothing else, it would still be one of the greatest comedies of all time. 

6. Bridesmaids 

Unlike The Hangover, which was basically a long comedy sketch, Bridesmaids is actually a movie (and one of the best comedies on Hulu). 

7. Ferris Bueller’s Day Off 

John Hughes’ zeitgeist-y, fourth wall-busting ode to rich, entitled suburban youth vs. killjoy authority announced Matthew Broderick as a bona fide star.

8. Mean Girls 

Aside from the greatness of its one-liners, Mean Girls has endured because it’s a cinematically exaggerated version of the truth. 

9. The Mitchells vs. The Machines 

Animated generational divides have never been more like a sci-fi carnival than in The Mitchells vs. the Machines

10. Slap Shot 

Believe it or not, there was a time before sports movies were required to be bland monoliths preaching banal virtues and imparting a moral lesson.
