5 Great Comedy Movies to Watch On Paramount+ This Weekend
IMDb scores are ample proof that these five are worth watching.
Although September is drawing to a close, the fall of 2023 is still in full swing, with the days getting shorter, bleaker, and colder. Under such circumstances, the autumn blues seem inevitable. Fortunately, there's a cure – laughter.
While a smile can make a day better, laughter is one of life's pleasures. And nothing brings it on like a great comedy. Here are five hilarious movies you can catch this weekend on Paramount+.
5. Ladybugs (1992, 5.2)
In a bid for a long-awaited promotion, Chester Lee volunteers to coach a local girls' soccer team, the Ladybugs, sponsored by his firm. Naturally, things turn out to be more difficult than they seem, and the character gets involved in some tough work that's hilarious to follow.
4. Nacho Libre (2005, 5.9)
This Latino-styled comedy follows an orphaned monk, Ignacio, who serves at a poverty-ridden Oaxaca monastery but dreams of becoming a wrestler. One day, he decides to earn some money for the monastery and its wards by participating in a wrestling match, and his journey begins…
The film is funny and warm. However, the humor is controversial at times.
3. The Brady Bunch Movie (1995. 6.2)
This classic family comedy is a super blast to the past for nostalgic viewers. It features the seemingly cozy 1990s America where the titular Brady family confronts corporate greed and a businessman who tries to push them out of their house to build a shopping mall in its place.
Quaint and kind, this film will warm you up on a lonely autumn evening.
2. Three Amigos! (1986, 6.5)
Starring Martin Short, Steve Martin, and Chevy Chase, this classic absurdist picture has made many a generation laugh out loud over the past forty years. Following a trio of Western actors who one day get invited to solve a very real problem, this film is hilariously predictable, yet it's a true pleasure to watch.
1. Elf (2003, 7.1)
Perhaps, it's yet too early to open Christmas season 2024, but this festive comedy starring Will Ferrell is a must in case you're feeling down. Centered on a boy who inadvertently got lost in Santa's satchel and traveled to the North Pole where he was adopted and raised by a couple of elves, this picture has all the features every Will Ferrell performance has: absurd, hilarious, and warm.
