In this article, we will discuss about the comic movies, which will make you jump out of your bed.
Comedies are plentiful. The really funny, the outrageously amusing, the heart-stopping amusing? These are more difficult to come by. Whatever your tastes are, there is something for everyone. Here are 18 comedies that will make you laugh till you cry.
1. 22 Jump Street (2014)
Christopher Miller and Phil Lord have already produced some of the finest comedies of the previous half-decade, they appear to be improving. Following the success of 21 Jump Street and The Lego Movie, they returned with 22 Jump Street, in which their baby-faced detectives (Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill) go from high school to college to take down a drug ring.
The hyper meta comedy travels twice as fast as normal but knowing the two clowns in the middle of the carnival makes a big difference. Miller and Lord make no attempt to hide their shame, yet they invariably get up, dust it off as if they meant to fall down and beg for more. Tatum, who appears to be brilliant at everything, is the big shocker, demonstrating just as adept at physical comedy and appearing foolish as he is at charming ladies with hip movement.
In Miller and Lord’s universe, he’s a huge, attractive cartoon creature, and when you’re not swooning, you’re trying not to destroy the upholstery by laughing up too loudly.
2. Slap Shot (1977)
If you were seeking for anything that suited the description forty years ago, you could find it in comedies like Michael Ritchie’s Bad News Bears, Sam Peckinpah’s Convoy, or most notably George Roy Hill’s Slap Shot. On the one hand, it’s a film about a fading steel town’s hockey team. On the other hand, it’s the funniest American film in any direction in the last twenty years.
Slap Shot makes you laugh so hard it aches, thanks to its combination of physical-bordering-on-painful comedy, Hill’s razor-sharp timing, and a slew of flawlessly weary and tiring performances from a game ensemble headlined by Paul Newman. The first game, performed by the stunted, bespectacled Hanson brothers (David Hanson, Steve and Jeff Carlson), is so full of offensive comedy that you’ll want to reach for an aircraft puke bag.
3. MacGruber (2010)
Will Forte and Jorma Taccone’s 2010 comedy is the most colorfully shameless comedy of the twenty-first century, less a dig at 1980s action pictures and more a thorough devotion to its harsh excesses. Forte portrays the main character, who is a cross between Tom Cruise in the 1980s and Richard Dean Anderson’s savvy crimefighter MacGuyver. He’s been retired (as was John Rambo before him), but the government wants him to stop his old foe Dieter Von Cunth (Val Kilmer, discovering a hidden gift for deadpan humour).
MacGruber, as performed by a magnificently over-the-top Forte, is a character with no bottom or top to his desperation or braggadocio. He’s blatantly inept and frequently panics, only to recover seconds later to unleash a cloud of poisonous self-aggrandizement on his talented sidekicks (Ryan Philippe and Kristen Wiig). In a single sequence, MacGruber may go from a “amazing” high to a horrifying low, eliciting belly laughing that will churn your stomach in the greatest manner conceivable.
4. They Came Together (2014)
Those who have finished David Wain’s Netflix series Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp are encouraged to see his funniest movie, 2014’s they Came Together.
While it appears to be a satire of the Nancy Meyers and Nora Ephron school of romantic comedies (think Sleepless in Seattle or the forthcoming The Intern), it’s really simply a vehicle for Wain and co-writer Michael Showalter’s odd sense of humor.
5. Monty Python’s Life of Brian (1979)
Though less well-known than its elder sibling, Monty Python and the Holy Grail, Life of Brian has the upper hand in terms of laughs and intellect, as well as the benefit of not having been quoted to death by fans. Life of Brian is about a man who was almost Jesus.
6. Hot Fuzz (2007)
Edgar Wright’s Hot Fuzz is the British maximalist’s sharpest, funniest picture, a spot-on satire and homage to Jerry Bruckheimer’s masterpieces (Bad Boys, Beverly Hills Cop, and a slew of other buddy cop flicks). After proving too intense for a large city police force, Detective Nick Angel (co-writer Simon Pegg) is assigned to a tiny village.
There, he’s teamed up with slackjawed movie buff Danny Butterman (Nick Frost), who teaches him the importance of kicking ass and making police work appear as cool as Will Smith and Martin Lawrence in Bad Boys 2.
7. Jackass 3D (2010)
The Jackass movies are an all-you-can-eat buffet of self-inflicted injury and body fluids, and are one of the few film series made funnier by a commentary track from its deranged performers.

The team, lead by Johnny Knoxville and his million dollar smile, raises the stakes for their final on-screen adventure, Jackass 3D. They interrupt lunch with a jet engine, crawl through a taser-augmented obstacle course, and unleash all kinds of crazy, furious creatures on one other.
8. StepBrothers (2008)
“This is a learned doctor’s home!” For years, Will Ferrell and Adam McKay tried to recreate the blunt force trauma humor of their smash hit Anchorman, but nothing made nearly the same societal impact.
In 2008, they struck gold by stripping away the frills and recognizing that all Ferrell needed was a few outstanding foils and a tiny area to be his worst self.
9. A New Leaf (1971)
Many people associate Walter Matthau with the jowly avuncular crank who knows more than he lets on in classics such as Fail-Safe, The Taking of Pelham One Two Three, and Charade. He plays three roles in A New Leaf- an irritable millionaire, an unusual love lead, and a cunning killer.
10. Miracle of Morgan’s Creek (1944)
Preston Sturges is widely considered as one of the world’s most singularly funny writer/directors. Sturges constructed an ecology of absurd names, hidden organizations, and flappable leading males under the control of brassy, fearsome dames with a streak of wins to rival a Russian hockey club. His finest film is the film-about-film Sullivan’s Travels, although Miracle of Morgan’s Creek is his funniest.
