When Becca gets to her new university, she is convinced to join the Barden Bellas, the all-girls singing group. Through the movie’s duration, the group is in swift competition with the all-male singing group at the same university, and Becca brings some much needed new talent and passion to the music. 

Rated PG-13, this movie is an excellent comedy for an older family. The film is filled with a solid variety of characters, each hilarious in their own way. Each joke lands perfectly and will keep you laughing from start to finish. The quirky humor and infectious, toe-tapping music make Pitch Perfect a great comedy. 

2. Bridesmaids

A competition between the bridesmaid and maid of honor over who is the bride’s best-friend adds the perfect amount of drama to this comedy. Said to be “The Hangovers” sister movie, Bridesmaids delivers a top-notch cast with hilarious gags revolving around all the difficulties that come with wedding planning. This film is a perfect comedy to watch for a girl’s night in, as the movie brilliantly portrays that girls just want to have fun. 

3. Dumb and Dumber

Two friends, Lloyd and Harry, go on a road trip to Aspen to return a briefcase to a woman who left it at the airport. Even with its mediocre plot, the knee-slapping performances of Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels carries you to the end. The film’s humor is obviously written for guys, so I wouldn’t pick this for a family comedy. With the actor’s impeccable timing and improvisation, this movie is a good choice if you want to laugh at some stupid humor. 

4. We’re the Millers

When David Clark needs to carry a huge shipment of weed to the US, he puts a fake family together, including a stripper, a runaway, and an inexperienced, shy teen. The movie has a great cast that obviously had fun making the film, making the jokes land even better. It is worth noting that most of the humor relies on shock-value and vulgar content, so this would be a suitable pick for an adult comedy night. 

5. Miss Congeniality

Gracie Hart is an FBI agent who goes undercover at the Miss United States pageant to prevent a bombing. Even though the ratings on this one are a bit low, I haven’t met a single person who doesn’t adore this film. While it may seem like a chick flick, Miss Congeniality is full of hilarious quips and physical humor that everyone will enjoy. 

While this is listed as a comedy, the action in the film adds the perfect amount of contrast to the humor and complements it perfectly. If you are looking for a well-rounded comedy for more of a family orientated audience, Miss Congeniality is a great pick. 

6. Jump Street

In this comedic sequel, Jenko and Schmidt go undercover at a local college (instead of a high school like the first movie) and try to crack a case while enjoying the exciting atmosphere. Even if you haven’t seen the first movie, 22 Jump Street is just as hilarious as the first, so you will still get what the movies are about.

The film hits all the spots as a sequel, delivering with its fun-to-watch duo and ridiculously funny situations the characters find themself in. With an even better bromance than the first movie, Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill deliver in their dedication to the roles, making the comedy even more enjoyable. If you want a good pick for an audience of a wide range, look up 22 Jump Street. 

7. Napoleon Dynamite

Set in a small-town high school, awkward and alienated teenager, Napoleon Dynamite helps his friend run for the class presidency while balancing his unique home life. This is a quirky comedy, and where the plot lacks, the memorable characters and unforgettable scenes make up for it. Possibly one of the most quotable movies ever, this film is excellent for people who love eccentric comedy. 

8. Groundhog Day

When cynical weatherman Phil heads to a small town to report on Groundhog Day, he finds himself living the same day over and over. Bill Murray’s dry sense of humor mixes perfectly with the bubbly, absent-minded townspeople and makes for an entertaining few hours. Groundhog day is for people looking for a clever, sarcastic comedy. The film is a great choice for anyone looking for a heart-warming comedy. 

9. Get Smart

Maxwell Smart is a smart but clumsy spy tasked with preventing a terrorist attack from a rival soy agency. Even though the ratings are low, you can’t go wrong with the talents of Steve Carell and Anne Hathaway, as they bring their game with this one with their brilliant comedic timing. They deliver the lines with the perfect balance of humor and wit, and the physical comedy of the film makes for a memorable watch. 

Even though Get Smart may not have the most advanced plot, the talent of the cast and upfront humor makes for an incredibly entertaining evening. 

10. Hitch

Hitch, the “date doctor,” helps his awkward friend land the woman of his dreams as he himself tries to woo the journalist he has fallen for, even though his flirtations don’t seem to be working. Will Smith and Kevin James play up a hilarious and awkward bromance, with great gags in the context of training each other how to flirt. If you are looking for a more clever, less crude comedy, then watch Hitch.

Thrown into the dangerous and action-packed world of deadly arms dealers, CIA desk analyst Susan Cooper volunteers to go undercover and get more experience than sitting at a desk. Melissa McCarthy brings her A-game as the lead character in the film and gives the audience the perfect mix of belly-laughs and serious moments. 

The comedy is written in a way that you can watch it over and over again, but it is good to note that there is some profanity in the humor. With a talented cast and top-notch writer, this witty comedy is great for people looking for a fun evening.

Just before one of them gets married, two middle-aged men take a road trip through wine California’s country, the engaged friend looking for one last fling while the struggling writer wants one last chance to bond with his best friend. Sideways is a more mature comedy with its intelligent writing and subtle yet effective humor. If you want a more heart-warming comedy, Sideways will be a perfect choice.
