But today we are all about Hulu, and this is our pick of the ten funniest films that you will find on Hulu right now.
The Cabin in the Woods (2011)
It is not every movie that can legitimately be ranked as both a great comedy and a quality horror flick. But this movie manages to be both at the same time.
Made by Joss Whedon, a group of young people (including Chris Hemsworth) make their way to a cabin in the woods where they are attacked by all sorts of your typical horror movie monsters. But it turns out that the entire scenario is orchestrated by a big white-collar organization (where we see Bradley Whitford), and for the people there, it is all in a day’s work.
Chicken Run (2000)
While an animated movie about Chickens might not sound like the funniest thing you are likely to see, it is so well done that it deserves to be on this list.
Our chickens are in a great escape situation, and we find humor in seeing the things that we take for granted from their perspective, and seeing how exactly they pull things off without opposable thumbs, or the ability to fly.
This is another movie that crosses genres, being both a serious superhero film and a laugh-out-loud comedy. But what do you expect when it is Ryan Reynolds wearing the suit.
Reynolds plays a thug for hire who sells his soul to an evil organization when he is diagnosed with a terminal illness. They experiment on him, leaving him disfigured, but supping up his fighting ability and giving him incredibly healing powers. He escapes and decides to get back at the organization, all while protecting the girl he abandoned.
I Feel Pretty (2018)
This vehicle film for Amy Schumer is love-hate. You’ll either think that it is laugh-out-loud funny, or just downright offensive.
Schumer plays a typical woman who lacks confidence when she compares herself to the images of beautiful women that we see in the media. But a smack on the head leaves her thinking that she looks like one of the supermodels that she envies, which gives her the huge confidence boost she needs. The experience lets her realize that looks aren’t everything, but there are lots of horrible stereotypes to cringe at along the way.
Instant Family (2018)
This is a fairly formulaic and predictable comedy, but it is so nicely delivered that you will still enjoy revisiting the territory and jokes.
Rose Byrne and Mark Wahlberg play the kind of couple who are completely unprepared for a life of responsibility and kids, as their friends and family like to tell them. In response, they register to foster, and are almost immediately given three children to look after. Comedy ensues as everyone tries to figure out how to live together in their new roles.
The Interview (2014)
A film more famous for nearly starting a war than its quality, we shouldn’t let the controversy overshadow just how clever and funny this gem is.
Seth Rogan and James Franco star as journalists that set up an interview with Kim Jong-un, the North Korean dictator. The CIA immediately swoops in and recruits the pair to assassinate him, but there could not be two people less prepared for the job.
The Nice Guys (2016)
Russell Crowe and Ryan Reynolds star in this action-comedy about a private eye and a tough-guy enforcer in 1970s Hollywood.
They find themselves on the wrong side of pretty much everyone when they team up to find a missing girl, which is linked to the mysterious death of a famous porn star. Naturally, whatever can go wrong, will go wrong.
This South Korean black comedy was arguably robbed of an Oscar for the best comedy movie and is the highest-grossing South Korean movie of all time.
It follows a poor family looking to turn their lives around by stealing the life of a wealthy family. They pretend to be skilled and qualified professionals in order to gain employment within the household in a number of different roles. They must then maintain the facade as the rest of their plan unfolds.
The Spy Who Dumped Me (2018)
One of the better “girl comedies” of recent years, Mila Kunis stars as the ex-girlfriend of a superspy who inadvertently gets dragged into one of his cases.
She decides that now is the time to jump in and take control of things for herself, with the help of her smart-mouthed friend played by Kate McKinnon. They find her ex and meet a variety of spies from different agencies on the way. It is impossible to know who to trust, and they have no idea what they are doing.
The Waterboy (1998)
Still one of Adam Sandler’s best comedies, and it gets extra points for featuring the incredible Fairuza Balk in another show-stealing role.
Sandler starts out as an inept sportsman but a serious football fan, so the college team let him act as the waterboy. But a great event reveals that he has an incredible and unique tackling ability. Now he is on the team, but he still has no idea what he is doing.
