2. Monty Python’s Life of Brian (1979)
Alright, let’s get started.
The best comedies on Netflix
A buddy cop comedy directed by Adam McKay of Anchorman fame, The Other Guys is super entertaining and takes full advantage of great chemistry between Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg.

Despite the fact this movie is tremendously flawed, I’ve got Don’t Look Up in both my best sci-fi movies and now my best comedies list.
8. Don’t Look Up (2021)
The Mitchells vs. the Machines is seriously one of the funniest and most authentic animated movies of the last couple of years. Starring a family of misfits on a road trip during a robot apocalypse, it’s consistently sharp, funny and perfect for a family movie night. Everyone will love it.
It’s also pretty funny. Leonardo DiCaprio is great, as is Jennifer Lawrence. It also features a great cameo from Timothée Chalamet.
Forgetting Sarah Marshall is a movie about break ups. It’s also a movie about masculinity and puppet rock-operas centred around Dracula.

1. Zoolander (2001)
Alright, now we’re talking. The Life of Brian is, for me, the best of the Monty Python movies, with The Holy Grail coming in a close second. Both are actually currently available on Netflix, so you should really watch both.
Stripes, which features a young Bill Murray as an out-of-luck taxi driver who joins the Army, is essentially Animal House in the barracks. It was enormously successful upon its release and was really the springboard for Murray’s career. Much like Caddyshack, it’s hardly aged well, but still worth a go.
I love this movie. To this day it’s one of my favourite comedies ever.
