Best Comedy Movies Of All Time On Netflix

These are the best Comedy movies off Netflix, a selection of films that manage to give us a laugh for many times we have seen them. There is everything: for the whole family, intelligent comedies, and other absurd humor.

There is a rule to choose movies on Netflix: if at any time you want a video, and you want to watch it at all costs, it will not be. The truth is that the variety of Netflix movies leaves much to be desired, compared to the series, but there is some hidden gem among so much mediocre film, and we found quite a lot of good comedies.

The genre of comedy is vast since practically everything has a place in it. There are dramatic comedies, romantic comedies, absurd humor, almost all cartoons have their point of comedy … and that variety does not help the Netflix algorithm, which catalogs comedies such as La La Land as being musical.

To help in the task of finding the best comedy movies for when we need a tape of that style, we compile some of the best Netflix comedies, those that always manages to smile at us.

Catch Me If You Can:

And speaking of high-profile moments, Catch me if you can is one of Netflix’s best comedies, a movie that we must also watch before we die since we will laugh from the beginning to the end.

And no, not precisely because it is full of blows, but because it is a film that is not taken seriously at any time, and the background is so good that, if we get fully involved, it will be hilarious from the first moment.

Catch me if you can go from a scammer, Frank Abagnale, that begins little by little until being searched by the FBI itself, with agent Carl Hanratty, played by Tom Hanks, at the head.

As we say, it is an exquisite comedy that will make you have a great time (if you have about two and a half hours to see it, of course).

Like God:

This, yes, without half measures. Since God is one of Netflix’s best laugh movies, and if Robin Williams and Tom Hanks sometimes get the laugh easy, what can we say about Jim Carrey?

Jim’s good was at a significant moment in Como Dios, a film in which he plays a reporter from a news channel who is fired while watching his great rival in the chain rise.

Of course, Carry’s character blames God, and the mighty, tired, grants him his powers to see if he can do his job better. What would you do with unlimited powers? Abuse, and that is what the reporter will do.

It is a light comedy that has its acidic point, and it is great to spend a great hour and a half.

Brian’s life:

Another of Netflix’s best comedies, and dates back to 1979. It is a classic in television programming in our country but never leftover in a catalog like Netflix.

Brian’s life is a comedy, the best comedy in history for some media, starring Brian, born in a stable a few meters from where Jesus was born.

From that moment on, the life of Jesus and Brian is “linked,” and we review some famous biblical moments from Brian’s point of view. Why is it so fun? Simple: it is very current; there are very absurd moments, but also an active social, political, religious criticism…

In short, it is one of the best laugh movies on Netflix, and like The Simpsons, one of those that you never get tired of watching.

The Knights of the Square Table:

And something similar happens with his sister, The Knights of the Square Table. Also of the Monty Python, released in 1975, is one of Netflix’s best laugh movies.

It is a very, very low budget movie, and it shows from the first second. However, you do not need a large budget, since not having money aroused the imagination of the Python to create some mythical moments of comedies.

It is a parody of medieval life in which the Python takes the opportunity to criticize some aspects of contemporary life (in 1975) or criticize medieval society and its actions from a more modern point of view.

It’s very funny, something shabby at times, but it’s something that helps make it even better.


Not all comedies were going to be starring flesh and blood characters. There are also cartoon laugh movies on Netflix. One of the best is Sing! A computer animation tape created by those who gave life to the minions.

There are a lot of very well-defined characters, each with their talent, who are dropping by the tests, shaping a sympathetic story and with more than one ” stub ”. It is a comedy for the whole family, especially for the little ones in the house.


And speaking of laugh movies for the whole family on Netflix … this is not one of them. And, Ted’s humor is quite wild, very much in line with Seth MacFarlane (creator of Family Guy, without going any further).

In it, we see the story of John Bennett, a boy who asks for Christmas that his teddy bear Teddy comes alive. That happens true … and 26 years later, Bennett and Ted are roommates.

Neither one cuts a hair and, although the script is nothing of the other world, it has very, very funny moments.
