Best Comedies on Netflix Part 1

The Best Comedies on Netflix is a large list and to start the summer we will give you a few.  We know that after a long day in the hot sun you don’t want to come home and watch something that requires much thought.  We have put together an enormous list of the best comedies on netflix but we won’t bog you down with the entire list all at once.   We will break it down into smaller list throughout the summer because we know you don’t want to be searching and wasting your evening.  You got it, quick and easy, here you go!




Adventureland is a must watch for anyone who has ever felt a little lost. Set in the summer,  the film stars Jesse Eisenberg as James Brennan, a recent college grad who has no idea what he wants to do with his life, so he takes a job at an amusement park in order to figure out his life.  If you’re looking for something funny rainy afternoon, Adventureland is where it’s at.



Ben Stiller at his best playing a really really really good looking model and teams up with Owen Wilson, who is the hottest thing, to take down the villian and save , quite possibly the entire fashion industry.  Endlessly quotable and laugh out loud funny, Zoolander will continue to be one of the best comedies of Netflix for many years to come.

Tommy Boy


Tommy Boy is a classic, that originally hit theaters in March 1995 starring Chris Farley and David Spade.  The story of a goof off , rich boy who inherits his father’s fortune realizes that the business is in trouble and hires an executive that had to work hard and pay his own way to get where he is.  The two set out on a road trip that only leads to laughter.


The Princess Bride

The Princess Bride follows the love story of Buttercup (Robin Wright) and Wesley (Cary Elwes), Inigo Montoya (Mandy Patinkin) and his quest for revenge. With narrative framing of a grandfather (Peter Falk) reading a story to his sick grandson (Fred Savage), The Princess Bride is endlessly funny. It goes down as one of the Best Comedies on Netflix and possibly of all time.

The Do Over



A Netflix Original Movie is a welcomed addition to this list. Adam Sandler and David Spade are reunited classmates and Sandler finds out that Spade’s life isn’t all peaches and cream.   Sandler has a plan to make Spade disappear so that he can have a chance to Do his life over.  This could be on the list of Best Comedies on Netflix for many years, unless they do it over.

Without a Paddle


Without a Paddle is non stop laughs from the beginning to the end.  The three amigos head off to unknown territory to locate a treasure, that they dreamed about finding when they were younger.  They find themselves in some rough spots. with mountain men, bears and each other.


Pure non-sense, things your mother told  you never to do, that’s what these men do.  If you can think it up they probably do it.

The Nutty Professor

Eddie Murphy in one of his most incredible roles.  Not only does he play the lovable Professor but he also plays the multiple roles of the family around the dinner table.  Classic story of the Ugly Duckling gets the girl, but will keep you laughing all the way through.
