Be prepared to laugh with this film that stars three comedy masterminds. The film follows a dinner party where friends must bring the saddest loser they can find with them. Unfortunately for them, the “schmucks” make the guest look like losers instead. The movie is funny and a little heart wrenching with lessons to be learned.

If you love Galifianakis’ Between Two Ferns, then the movie is for you. Galifianakis hits the road to find famous people to interview for his no-budget talk show. The interviews are hilarious, and a little awkward and all of his guests do a fantastic job at playing along with the skits.

Anything with Robin Williams will be funny, and RV is no different. The movies follow a family that gets a massive RV for a cross-country trip to see the Rockies. Little did the Munro family know that they were about to embark on the adventure of a lifetime. The movie is funny, light, and really brings the entire family together.
