Comedy Movies – Must Watch

Posted on December 28th, 2007 in Movies-Books - 3 comments

I like humor in any form. I must have spent countless hours watching old telugu classic comedies (made by Vamsi, Jandhyala et al), reading numerous books, watching tons of episodes of friends, simpsons, seinfeld, so many cartoons and animation stuff. I have rarely spent a day without laughing out hard watching something or reading something or thinking of something funny. I am sure you also like to do the same. So here it goes, without any delay, my list of must watch comedy movies.

Smala Sussie or Slim Sussie
My number one pick in this year is Smala Sussie, its a Swedish movie about a brother returning to country side to look for his sister only to find that she is dead. Its plot is so strong and so intricately weaved that even after completing the movie you will gather new meanings for the jokes and laugh. It has brilliantly humorous references to some of the Hollywood classics like scarface, the usual suspects, pulp fiction etc. I think a copy of this movie with english sub-titles is available for watching online, watch it now if you have 2 hours and mood to laugh.

Superbad
My next one is Superbad, even though it sounds like its yet another college comedy, the fact is, it is so refreshingly well treated. It is brilliantly made with loads of humor and neat story line. I must have laughed all the way from titles to credits.

Head above the water
Another good yet underrated comedy is Head above the water, this one is a classic love-mystery-confusion comedy with an interesting plot. Cameron Diaz played the role of an innocent and confused wife excellently.

Thank you for smoking
The next one is Thank you for smoking, its an intelligent satire on tobacco giants in US. The humor is so subtle and lovable. You wont ROFL watching this, but you sure would love the clever wordplay and situations.

Lady and the Trap
Another classic comedy I have seen this year is Lady and the Tramp, it is one of the first animation movies made by Walt Disney Productions about a dog named “lady”. Its a great musical with lots of well written songs. A must watch if you love animation movies.

The southpark movie
The final movie in this list is The Southpark movie, its a raging comedy about 4 boys and what happens when they watch an R-rated movie made by Canadians and learn bad words. It has got lot of well written songs and the whole movie is loaded with references to main stream media, politics. It might sound obscene for some people, but sheer strength of the satire is something.

Happy Laughing :))
