We live in a world of high-stakes controversy over issues that, a few years ago, would have seemed nonsensical to debate. Giving tax cuts to banks? Reopening coal mines? I know it’s hard to remember, but we used to live in a world where things like this would have been considered beneath us as a nation. Those were the days.
Given our culture’s red-line status on internal conflict, and its recent track record in handling differences, 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 of your choice. People are protective of their brand of humor, man.
With all that being said, this is one writer’s opinion, and disagreement is welcome. These are just movies we’re talking about. Save your strength. In no particular order, these are the best comedy movies of all time and we’ve rounded up the best comedy movies on Netflix to stream.
