7 Movies to Watch When You Need a Good Laugh

Here's a definitive list of comedy movies that will make you laugh even on the darkest of days.


This coming-of-age teen comedy is just what you need on days that don’t seem to work in your favour. And not to forget, Paul Rudd launched a million girls' obsessions with hot nerds in this movie.

Mean Girls

The movie revolves around Cady (Lindsay Lohan) as she moves from being home-schooled by her parents in Africa to an American high school. She is unprepared for what awaits her. Watch this to see how she infiltrates the girl clique and has some rude awakenings on the way.

Sister Act

This movie is one of the best movies to come out of the 1990s. With Whoopi Goldberg starring as a lounge singer turned nun and Maggie Smith playing the Reverend Mother, it makes for a delightful watch.


This movie marks the directorial debut of Olivia Wilde. She takes the “last day of high school” theme and gives it a fresh twist with interesting, well developed characters. And the catchy soundtrack is a bonus!


The movie is a heartwarming ode to the power of female friendship. What’s more, you can’t miss Melissa McCarthy’s impressive performance in this.

Meet the Parents

Meeting the partner’s parents is bound to be stressful but Greg Focker played by Ben Stiller’s stress is next level. His potential father in law (Robert De Niro) is a former CIA agent with a suspicious nature. The movie is as hilarious as it can get. Ben and Robert are at their best in this comedy.

There’s Something About Mary

An irresistibly sweet movie with some stunning performances by Cameron Diaz and Ben Stiller, if you haven’t watched it, now is the time. Packed with some hilarious scenes and musical cameos by Jonathan Richman, this movie is totally worth it.
