If the last couple of years taught us anything, it’s that we all need humor to get by. From TV shows and books to movies that leave us in stitches, there’s nothing in the world like a good laugh — especially when it’s shared with friends and family.
During the pandemic, we started having virtual movie dates with our loved ones, and a genre we visited frequently was comedy. Taking the time to share laughter takes the weight off of our shoulders, and many movie fans can agree. It also makes you feel more connected to those you care for and opens a window to revisiting old favorites and finding new movies to make you laugh.
With the holidays upon us, we find ourselves indulging in all things feel-good and romantic — but we’re still watching comedies with our loved ones, and it seems that many moviegoers are doing the same. A thread on Reddit has become a popular discussion post discussing the funniest comedies ever seen.
From movies you’re sure to laugh at just by reading the title to films you’ll immediately want to add to your watch list — here are some of the comedies that fans can’t get enough of.
