Check out the best comedy movies on Amazon Prime Video. They say that it is easier to make people cry than to make people laugh. What makes you laugh, as well as art in general, is a difficult concept to define and everyone will have their own interpretation of what is funny and what is not. However, there are certain comedy films that have been proven effective over time. Prime Video has been characterized by bringing together a wide range of titles, among which are many classic films in all genres.
To make searching a bit easier for you, here we focus on comedy movies on Amazon Prime Video. We find many modern jewels, as well as titles from decades past.
Find here other lists with other genres available on Netflix and other platforms of streaming.
The Mask (Dir. Chuck Russell, 1994)
Jim Carrey plays a bored bank clerk, one day he finds a mask that when putting it on will give him superhuman powers. Carrey’s charisma and acting, novel special effects and fantastic tone of the film make it a fun and effective comedy. A classic from the 90s that over the years continues to be an excellent film for all comedy lovers.
To hell with the devil (Dir. Harold Ramis, 2000)
There was a time when Brendan Fraser was the king of the box office. This film is a fantastic example of his versatility as a comedian, because as Elliot (a man who exchanges his soul with the devil in exchange for some fulfilled wishes) he achieves a perfect touch in each of the different personalities that he embodies with each fulfilled wish. Hilarity guaranteed.
And, where is the pilot? (Dir. David Zucker, Jim Abrahams, Jerry Zucker, 1980)
The comedy of absurdities has become a joke in itself. The parodies and the “easy jokes” have demerited a genre that this film practically saw its birth. Before the tapes “It’s not another movie by …”, came Airplane (which also made the titles And where is the … in fashion). Jokes and situations are silly, yes, but if there is such a thing as silly but clever humor, this is the perfect example.
The Big Lebowski (Dirs. Ethan and Joel Coen)
There is little that can be said about this great work by the Coen brothers that has not already been said. It is an undisputed classic that has become much more than just a movie. It has inspired philosophies, conventions and at least one sequel that is not long in coming. Want a couple of life lessons? The Dude is the person to turn to.
Between razors and secrets (Dir. Rian Johnson, 2019)
Cleverly written, with a spectacular cast, a good dose of black comedy and unexpected twists of the screw, Rian Johnson delivers a comedy where an investigator is hired to solve the mystery about the death of a famous writer after his birthday party where only his dysfunctional family attended. It is a tribute by Johnson to the Coral films and detective films.
Hot Fuzz (Dir. Edgar Wright, 2007)
The second installment of the so-called “Cornetto trilogy” (composed by Shaun of the Dead, this one and World’s End) by Edgar Wright, places Simon Pegg and Nick Frost as two policemen from a small British town. Similar to Deadly Weapon (after all, this movie is a tribute to all that 80s action-comedy cinema), the pair of those two actors is perfect in terms of their chemistry and interaction.
Borat, next documentary film (Dir. Jason Woliner. 2020)
Sacha Baron Cohen achieves with this film a type of uncomfortable humor that is not for all tastes, it is a sarcastic look at modern ideals and current North American society, a film where through black humor and the satirical sense that was the success From its first installment, Baron Cohen makes a social and cultural critique of modern society through his character, the Kazakh journalist Borat.
The Wolf of Wall Street (Dir. Martin Scorsese, 2013)
If anyone had doubts, Martin Scorsese shows with this film that he continues to have the same vitality as always as a filmmaker. It is a film about greed, a warning to excessive capitalism, and an excellent example of what a good script, actors in their prime, and accurate editing can accomplish.
Heavy Girls (Dir. Mark Waters, 2004)
Our list of the best comedy movies on Prime Video wouldn’t be complete without this one. Based on the non-fiction book Queen Bees and Wannabes, Heavy girls (Mean Girls) is a comedy set in a high school in which the company you keep says a lot about your social status. The ecosystem of a high school is dictated by popularity and this script by Tina Fey manages to give important lessons in living together and growing, while telling an absolutely hilarious story. A modern classic.
Brittany’s Career (Dir. Paul Downs Colaizzo, 2019)
It had a limited release in the United States in 2019 and although it did not reach Mexico theaters, it is a stroke of luck that it did so through Prime Video. It is a true story about a woman who sets herself the greatest challenge that a person can face: to be better. Brittany’s journey is empowering, inspiring, and yes, a lot of fun.
