It was not easy to put this list together because I am well aware that people have very different taste in movies when it comes to comedy. I have created this list with movies that are funny but also have a story to it and not too silly. What does this mean? It means that you will not find a movie like Scary Movie where not only is there no real story to it but it is also full of silly fart jokes and similar things like that. This list is only made up of full length movies so be sure to check out my list of funny stand-up shows on Netflix if that is more your style
Meet the Parents: A hilarious movie starring Robert DeNiro and Ben Stiller. A fun movie that keeps it realistic and that does not turn silly. Owen Wilson has a supporting role and delivers some funny jokes.
Kick Ass: Perhaps more action than comedy but it is still a funny movie. An ordinary guy who wants to be a superhero but get’s his ass kicked. Recipe for a great comedy.
Dumb & Dumber: One of Jim Carrey’s best movies. It might be a bit silly at times but you will find yourself laughing out loud many times.
Very Bad Things: I actually consider this the inspiration for The Hangover. Not as good but what can go wrong goes wrong. Jeremy Piven shows his tremendous skills we know from his role as Ari Gold in Entourage.
Analyze This: Robert De Niro plays a mobster who suffers from panic attacks. He seeks help from a shrink. Robert De Niro is very funny.
Rango: A hilarious animated movie about a chameleon ending up in the Wild West. Johnny Depp does the voice acting and he nails the role like he always does.
A Life Less Ordinary: A surreal but funny comedy starring Ewan McGregor and Cameron Diaz. A cleaning man takes his boss’s daughter hostage but it might not have been so smart after all. Great chemistry between the main characters.
No Strings Attached: Natalie Portman and Ashton Kutcher join forces in this funny romantic comedy. Kevin Kline plays Ashton Kutcher’s Dad and brings some funny jokes to the table.
King of California: Perhaps not what you would consider a comedy but Michael Douglas’ character does deliver many hilarious moments making it pretty funny movie.
Greenfingers: A movie about prisoners who are forced to become gardeners. Well developed characters together with jokes that bubble with surprising wit and charm makes this well worth watching.
