1. The meaning of life (1983)
Long live the Monty Python ! The British comic group entered through the big door to the Netflix Spain platform, and the comedy fans couldn’t be happier. Although ‘Brian’s life’ is the one that normally occupies the top positions favoritism in his filmography, do not miss this anthology of short films about the vicissitudes of life. Legendary!
2. Little Miss Sunshine (2006)
The essence of the American ‘indie’ breathes free in this tragicomedy by Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris , who fell in love with the world more than a decade ago. It is never a bad time to remember why he conquered so many spectators, with such an acid humor and that final dance that will remain forever recorded in our retinas.
3. Pitch Perfect (2013)
The unleavened protagonists of this teenage musical film could not be missing on this list. With Anna Kendrick in the lead, this film by Jason Moore taught us that singing acapella can be very cool, and that ‘teen’ stories can be risky, extreme and with a broad representation of diversity. Oh, and it’s to die of laughter.
4. Good morning, Vietnam (1987)
Barry Levinson took the story of Adrian Cronauer, a radio DJ who came to Vietnam in the middle of the war, to film the soldiers through the local radio station. His expletives and jokes, in the mouth of Robin Williams , are absolutely iconic.
5. The Ballad of Buster Scruggs (2018)
The last of the Coen brothers , produced by Netflix, was meant to be a series, but it makes perfect sense that in the end it has remained like a movie: its six different stories converge in a look both comic and bitter to the collective imaginary of the western. Perhaps some chapter will make you drop a tear, but, in general, the comedy ‘Coenian’ is imposed.

6. Bee Movie (2007)
A bee demanding humans for eating their honey? One that, moreover, is up to the point of working in a hive and wants to live life a little? Well, yes, this is the plot of this animated film, which we only need one piece of information to know will be a comedy: Jerry Seinfeld puts the voice of the protagonist. From there, prepare your best laughs.
7. Catch Me If You Can (2002)
This Steven Spielberg movie , starring some wonderful Leonardo DiCaprio and Tom Hanks , is waiting for you on Netflix to show you that King Midas of Hollywood knows how to make a good comedy. Well, as if there was something I can’t do. Here, it tells the true story of a criminal with ease of changing identity and an FBI agent who seems unable to catch him.
8. Set Ip Up (2018)
Looking for something between comedy and romance? Netflix is getting a quite successful master in ‘rom-com’, and this is one of the best examples of it. Directed by Claire Scanlon , it tells the story of two fellows who want to bundle their bosses so they don’t give them the tabarra so much. Funny, witty and, of course, very romantic.
9. Bridesmaids (2011)
Women shit too. And they drink, and curse, and break things, and bleach their asses. All that and more are faced by the protagonists of this comedy by Paul Feig , who revolutionized the romantic comedy as we knew it. And, who could resist queens of American comedy like Kristen Wiig or Melissa McCarthy ?
10. Shrek 2 (2004)
It’s time to accept it: Shrek is fine, but the real robaplanos of this saga appeared in the second installment, and it’s the Puss in Boots . Not even the donkey can shade those large, watery eyes that would convince Hitler himself. Therefore, we never tire of seeing this new adventure of the green ogre, which, as we are accustomed to, is hilarious.
11. Pain and Gain (2013)
¿ Michael Bay ? Comedy? Willful? You are right! This, which seems a ‘machunada’ of things that explode starring three men of impossible musculature ( Dwayne Johnson , Mark Wahlberg and Anthony Mackie ), turns out to be a comedy not only tremendously fun, but also very self-conscious and critical of the American Dream.
12. Algo muy gordo (2017)
The latest from Carlo Padial , king of the underground posthumor with ‘Mi loco erasmus’ or ‘Taller Capuchoc’, is once again a reflection on the limits of comedy, and cinema itself. But, in addition, it is a hilarious movie, led by Berto Romero and his existential disquisitions.
13. Little Evil (2017)
If you were amazed by ‘Tucker and Dale against evil’, you will love the novelty of its creator, Eli Craig , who maintains that absurd humor and reverence for gender. If the ‘slasher’ was the focus of the tribute in the first, demonic possession – the Antichrist, specifically – is the central theme of this funny comedy about relationships, sometimes demonic, between parents and children.
14. The Incredible Jessica James (2017)
Netflix’s original production, this Jim Strouse movie tells us about love in Tinder’s times from the overwhelming charisma of its protagonist, comedian Jessica Williams . His emotional and sexual adventures reveal a feeling more alive than ever: the one that reveals the need to fit, to connect, to fall in love.
15. Fe de etarras (2017)
This original Netflix production had the always interesting quality assurance Borja Cobeaga , director of the acclaimed ‘Negotiator’. Here, he introduces us to four ETAs who must live together under the same roof waiting for the big blow, while Spain advances in the World Cup. Can they withstand the ‘lololos’ and the flags of the nation?
16. Murder Mystery (2023)
Murder Mystery is a 2023 American comedy mystery film directed by Kyle Newacheck and written by James Vanderbilt. The film stars Adam Sandler, Jennifer Aniston, and Luke Evans, and follows a married couple who are caught up in a murder investigation on a billionaire’s yacht.
17. Zombieland (2009)
The horror comedy Zombieland focuses on two men who have found a way to survive a world overrun by zombies. Columbus is a big wuss — but when you’re afraid of being eaten by zombies, fear can keep you alive.
Must watch comedy movie alert!!!
18. Dolemite Is My Name (2023)
This is a explicit comedy. Based on true story.
Murphy plays Rudy Ray Moore, the singer, nightclub comic and proto-rapper who in 1975 produced and starred in the cult blaxploitation comedy Dolemite, based on the outrageously obscene character he’d created for his standup act and bestselling LPs. The nearest Brit equivalent was probably Derek and Clive. With never-say-die attitude, Moore battles through his ailing career in its early days: the sometime singer and dancer has an epiphany on seeing a garrulous homeless guy reciting rhyming tales of a legendary character called Dolemite.
