Are you searching for some laugh-out-loud comedies to brighten movie night? Then, look no further. After a quick internet poll, “What is the funniest comedy movie you’ve ever seen?” These are the top-voted films.

1. Superbad (2007)

The audience response to this film is highly positive, with 90% of Google users upvoting it. There isn’t a single scene that is dull. The Jonah Hill-Seth Rogen duo does a great job of playing high school boys who want to enjoy their lives. But their antics land them in a bunch of trouble.

One noted, “Superbad is my favorite of all time. Mostly because there isn’t a single scene that isn’t funny or boring, and it’s easy to watch. You don’t have to be in the mood to watch it.”

2. Dumb and Dumber (1994)

Do you want to hear the most annoying sound in the world? Then, watch the hilarious classic, Dumb and Dumber. Starring the iconic Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels duo playing two stupid friends who stumble upon a suitcase full of money. 

This suitcase is intended for abductors with a connection to the Mob. However, they don’t know about this. A series of hilarious situations follow as they go to Aspen to deliver the briefcase to the lady who intentionally left it behind.

Interestingly, Dumb and Dumber bombed at the box office, but it gained a cult following in the coming years and decades. 

3. Tropic Thunder (2008)

Tropic Thunder is a controversial comedy starring Ben Stiller, Robert Downey Jr., Jack Black, and Tom Cruise (in an antagonist role)! They all play actors shooting for a big-budget war movie, forced to become the soldiers they are portraying.

A young drug dealer is the leader of a poppy-growing gang, and they attack our “heroes.” It’s a wild and explosive (literally) ride and a rewatchable film, according to many in the thread.

4. Airplane! (1980)

Ted Striker (Leslie Nielsen) is a former pilot who fears flying (we’re off to a good start). He finds himself trying to land a plane where all the passengers are sick with food poisoning.

One suggested that Leslie Nielsen has mastered the art of delivering a great joke with a dead straight face. It’s joke after joke for an hour and a half (a lot of them are naughty too).

5. Top Secret (1984)

Many suggested that if you enjoy war movies even a little bit, you will be in tears watching this one (not sad tears). It shows a young American singer who, after falling in love, tries to rescue the girl’s father. 

He’s a scientist captured by the Germans in the hopes of having him build a naval mine. Viewers say this movie has twice the joke of Airplane, “but there is no emotional tether to tie it to.”

6. Borat (2006)

Borat: Cultural Learnings of America to Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan. Phew, that’s a mouthful! The film stars Sacha Baron Cohen as Borat, a Kazakh resident who travels to America to make a documentary. 

He learns that, while America might look different than Kazakhstan, it is similar in many ways. According to many in the thread, the sequel, Borat Subsequent Moviefilm, is just as funny.

However, they warned if you don’t take offensive jokes well, you should not watch this film as it’s part satire, part shockumentary.

7. Blazing Saddles (1974)

Another controversial comedy on the list is the vulgar classic Blazing Saddles. It shows a newly appointed Black sheriff and his White partner trying to save a town from a wave of thugs who want to destroy it to make a railroad. The people of Rock Ridge have a racial bias towards their new leader but soon warm up to him in a hysterical turn of events.

8. Grandma’s Boy (2006)

One user noted, “It’s gross. It’s hilarious, but it is disgusting.” Allen Covert’s character, Alex, a video game creator, finds himself homeless and has to move in with his wacky grandma (Doris Roberts). She ruins Alex’s social (intimate) life with her constant presence.

9. History of the World, Part 1 (1981)

History of the World, Part I was written, produced, and directed by Mel Brooks and is a hilarious watch, according to the thread. He also plays Moses and other characters. Brooks is famous for his comedic classics, and this film does not disappoint. He traces the history of humankind in a highly entertaining manner.

10. Shaun of the Dead (2004)

Finally, a great British comedy makes this list! This film is part of The Three Flavours Cornetto trilogy starring a similar cast, all in the comedy genre: Shaun of the Dead (2004), Hot Fuzz (2007), and The World’s End (2013).

Simon Pegg and Nick Frost are two “losers” who must save themselves and Simon’s girlfriend and mother from a zombie apocalypse.
