10 Hilarious Movies That Will Have You Bawling With Laughter

Are you searching for a funny film to have you busting at the seams? You've got company. Someone recently asked,” “What's a movie that genuinely had you bawling with laughter?” Here are the top-voted responses.

1. The Birdcage (1996)

“I love that Robin Williams isn't even the funniest character. The Birdcage is a showcase for the comedic geniuses of Nathan Lane and Hank Azaria,” one person commented. “That entire kitchen scene after Robin Williams slips is improv. Robin even breaks a little bit. They kept it in the movie because it was so good,” another shared.

2. Airplane! (1980)

“Oh man, I had the misfortune of watching this for the first time with some cannabis edibles. There's a joke or visual gag every three-to-five seconds. I couldn't breathe; I was laughing so much,” one user admitted.

3. Hot Fuzz (2007)

“I love the setup that all of Butterman's stupid off-the-cuff remarks in that segment are all paid off by the end. On top of that fact, I don't think there is a single line of dialogue in the first thirty minutes that isn't paid off later in the film,” another suggested.

4. What We Do in The Shadows (2014)

“I saw this at a Seattle film festival. I didn't know anything about it at all. Never laughed so hard in my life. I was practically in shock from the sheer delight of the humor in this movie. People who love this movie are my people,” replied one.

5. Top Secret (1984)

“The scene where the train is pulling away from the station. And the guy looks out the window and sees a tree speeding along with the train. Then he does a double take as a full-on businessman with an attaché chases down, catches, and hops on the tree,” one person laughed.

6. Galaxy Quest (1999)

“The best part is when he says, “By Grabthar's hammer, I will avenge thee,” unironically. It came full circle,” said one. “That was the amazing part of that movie. Every one of the main characters had to transition from the actor playing the part to the person being the part. Awesome to watch,” a second added.

7. Tucker and Dale Vs. Evil (2010)

“I usually can't handle gore, but I was so distracted laughing at the gags and jokes that I was okay because it was so absurd. So I'd recommend it to people who don't like gore,” one suggested. “It's the funniest horror comedy of all time,” said another.

8. The Naked Gun (1988)

Police Squad is genuinely the funniest thing I've ever seen. I read an article on it once. The show was canceled because Fox thought it was too clever for the average viewer or something to that degree,” someone shared. 

9. The Emperor's New Groove (2000)

“For a movie that was reworked completely from a far more serious version, and on a tight deadline too, we sure did get an iconic comedy—one of the least Disney-ish Disney movies, which is excellent,” another expressed.

10. Pirates of the Caribbean (2003)

Finally, someone admitted, “The first Pirates of the Caribbean film. We didn't know it was a comedy, and my mom and I completely lost it when he came in on a sinking ship. By far the most memorable movie moment for me.”
