It’s not easy to put your foot down with confidence, and lately, it’s begun to feel like everything is controversial. Given that general environment of public battling, you would be right to wonder what the hell I think I’m doing claiming to have listed the greatest comedy movies of all time.
Comedy is, after all, perhaps the most controversial category in film. Don’t believe me? Next time you’re at a party, let it be known throughout the gathering what you consider a good comedy movie or even just your favorite movie on Netflix. Then position your back against the wall (for safety) and prepare to endure an onslaught of aggressive protestation to your choice. People are protective of their brand of humor.
This is, of course, just one writer’s opinion, and you’re welcome to find me at a party and back me up against a wall to yell at me about them. These are just movies we’re talking about. Save your strength. In no particular order, these are the best comedy movies of all time. If you’re looking for something a little narrower, we’ve also rounded up the best comedy movies on Netflix.
