There is no better way to unwind after a hard day at work than by laughing for a few hours. Luckily, this is now easier than ever thanks to video streaming services. It only takes a few seconds to play a hilarious movie on the television using Netflix. These are four of the best comedies that are on Netflix right now.
Monty Python and the Holy Grail
Monty Python is easily the best comedy group of all-time. Their iconic jokes are still being quoted decades after they were originally told. The group has several films available on Netflix, but their best is “Monty Python and the Holy Grail.” The irreverent comedy puts King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table through a series of zany adventures that are just as funny as they were 40 years ago.
“Thor: Ragnarok” may look like just another superhero movie, but it is actually one of the funniest films to be released in the last few years. The movie stars Chris Hemsworth as Thor as he attempts to save his homeland by defeating his evil sister. “Thor: Ragnarok” is still loaded with action sequences, but director Taiki Waititi takes every opportunity he can to insert hilarious jokes. The dialogue is so funny that the comedy outshines the action in every scene.
“50/50” stars Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Seth Rogen as two best friends that try to cope with life after one of them is diagnosed with cancer. This may not sound like a great premise for a comedy, but the film continuously finds ways to make the audience laugh despite the dark plot. Comedy is designed to help everyone get through the tough times in their life, and no film has shown the importance of laughter better than “50/50.”
Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels
“Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels” is the film the propelled the careers of Guy Richie and Jason Statham. The story revolves around four friends as they get caught up in a life of crime after owing money to the wrong people. This is a movie everyone needs to see at least twice because a lot of the rapid fire jokes will be missed as you are laughing.
