When you don’t know what to watch, a good comedy movie will always hit the spot. Netflix has a lot of good offerings when it comes to comedy films, including some decent original movies. However, these are the 10 best comedies available on Netflix right now.

The Blues Brothers (1980)

Personally, I think this is the best musical ever made. The Blues Brothers is the classic tale of “getting the band back together” as brothers Jake and Elwood Blues set out to save their childhood orphanage through a fundraising gig. The film features hilarious performances, an amazing soundtrack, and a nun with a rocket launcher… I shouldn’t need to say anymore.

The Addams Family (1991)

The beloved family comedy that brought gothic to the mainstream, The Addams Family follows the titular supernatural family ward off con artists using a lookalike of a long-dead relative to fleece the family out of their humungous fortune.

Ferris Bueller’s Day Off (1986)

When we’re laying in bed in the morning, wanting to call in sick to work or to school, this is what we imagine our day will look like. Follow Ferris Beuller as he plays hookey with his best friend and his girlfriend, traveling across Chicago whilst their school’s dean attempts to track them down and uncover their lie.

Scott Pilgrim vs. the World (2010)

Soon to be adapted into an anime with the entire cast returning, Edgar Wright’s Scott Pilgrim vs. the World is an absurd romantic comedy in which the titular Scott, a bass player in a failing indie band, must battle the Seven Evil exes of his new girlfriend to in order to secure their relationship.

Monty Python and The Holy Grail (1975)

Easily Monty Python‘s best film, The Holy Grail takes the classic British comedy group back to the 6th Century in the boots of King Arthur and the Knights of Camelot (Spamelot). Across their journey to find the holy grail, the knights are tempted by a castle filled with beautiful women, have to fight a terrifying beast, and escape a 1960s police officer chasing their escapades. It’s every bit as absurd as it sounds, and it is brilliant.

Groundhog Day (1993)

One of Bill Murray’s most iconic roles, Groundhog Day sees Murray portray Phil, a self-centered weatherman who finds himself caught in a time loop, reliving the same day again and again.

The Truman Show

As gut-punching as it is hilarious, Jim Carrey is Truman Burbank, a man whose entire life has been carefully created and concealed as a faux-reality television series broadcast around the world. When a light fixture falls from the sky, Truman’s life begins to take a strange turn as he slowly uncovers the performances happening around him.

Easy A (2010)

When Olive, played by Emma Stone, lies to her best friend about losing her virginity to a college boy, the rumor quickly begins to spread around her school that she is ‘easy.’ Her regret and shame quickly fade away as Olive learns to embrace the reputation.

Superbad (2007)

One of the best teen comedies ever made, Superbad perfectly encapsulates the horny, awkward teenager that every one of us once was as we desperately tried to fit in. Starring Jonah Hill, Michael Cera, and Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Superbad still holds up as a timeless teen classic that popularised the mononym McLovin for a generation.

Paddington (2014)

Taking a sharp turn from the sex comedies of the last two entries, Paddington follows the iconic talking bear as he travels from Peru to the heart of London. In London, Paddington is adopted by the Brown family and takes them on many adventures in the big city.
