Watching funny movies is a great way to add more laughter in your life. It can also be an excellent stress reliever. But regardless of whatever mood you are in funny movies offer comic relief that comes with many beneficial effects. So here are some of the funniest films that can give you the belly-aching laughs that will leave you with good feelings in no particular order:
1. American Pie (1999)
There’s nothing new to the story of a young man bent on losing his virginity. But what makes this film funny are the characters’ dynamics and the charming ways in which they try to accomplish what they set out to do. It is silly and outrageously funny.
2. Dumb And Dumber (1994)
This movie lives up to its title. It puts dumb and dumber to completely different heights. Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels played the roles so spectacularly that there were many cringe-worthy moments of moronic proportions that will make you roll in laughter. The unbelievably stupid characters will make you suspend disbelief with their antics. This is a feel-good movie that will make you think about friendships and the crazy things buddies do at times.
3. Meet the Parents (2000)
Ben Stiller nailed his role as a guy who tries to win the hearts, or at least the approval, of his girlfriend’s parents. Hilarity ensues as his encounters with the former CIA dad ably played by Robert De Niro resulted to a series of blunders that aren’t helping his cause. This movie is funny and endearing from beginning to end.
4. Monty Python and the Holy Grail (1975)
This film follows the story of King Arthur as he traveled to recruit knights to be part of Camelot’s Round Table. Some of the men he joined him were unimpressed by his authority. The tale does not end after he has gathered the men and returned to Camelot. Rather, it continued to unfold after God sent them on a quest to search for the Holy Grail. The knights went though their respective adventures and later met again only to come face to face with an enchanter who told them that there is something they still need to do to finally find the Grail. This film is filled with hilarious moments that will make you laugh out loud.
5. The Hangover (2009)
This is a story of buddies played by Justin Bartha, Zach Galifianakis, Ed Helms, and Bradley Cooper and a bachelor party gone awry. Set in Las Vegas, what could have been a celebration ended up with a missing person that triggered an investigation. With the groom nowhere to be found, the three remaining friends try to remember what happened to find their missing friend.
