The ongoing pandemic and life in general can get really tough. That’s why everyone needs to pause every once in a while, and enjoy something that brings comfort to their hearts. One way to do so is through getting lost in movie magic.
While everyone has their own favorite genre, there’s nothing like a good ol’ comedic film to make you laugh your worries away. With so many options to choose from, you may find yourself defaulting to the classics. However, if you’re looking for something new, here are some underrated films that will surely tickle your funny bone:
Who doesn’t love a good whodunnit film? Based on the popular board game of the same name, this cult classic features a lot of comedic legends such as Tim Curry, Christopher Lloyd and Martin Mull.
Dirty Rotten Scroundels (1988)
Steve Martin and Michael Caine are both excellent thespians, and together, they form comedic gold. This flick follows two con men who try to outdo each other by swindling an American heiress.
Robin Hood: Men in Tights (1993)
A parody on the children’s classic, this musical adventure will make you laugh from start to finish. If the leading man looks familiar to you, you might know him from his signature line, “as you wish” from his other period film The Princess Bride.
Blades of Glory (2007)
Will Ferrell has starred in a lot of comedic gems, but this particular flick has always been under the radar. The skating scenes in this movie are unlike anything you’ve seen in other comedy movies.
What We Do In The Shadows (2014)
Before Taika Waititi became a household name because of his Marvel fame, he created a comedic horror masterpiece about vampires struggling with mundane things of modern life.
Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping (2016)
Andy Samberg may be known for his work on SNL and Brooklyn Nine-Nine, but this mockumentary about a former boy band member trying to retain his celebrity status is still worth the watch. It has a lot of celebrity cameos, too.
Game Night (2018)
A game night between couple friends that goes horribly wrong, this movie has so many plot twists that you’ll never guess how the story ends. Plus, it solidifies how versatile of an actress Rachel MacAdams is.
These movies are proof that just because a movie didn’t please the critics and break box office records doesn’t mean it’s not worth the watch. You shouldn’t judge a movie by its reviews. You might even discover a new favorite by giving underrated gems a chance.
