This absolute gem of a comedy film was released in 1988 to rave reviews and massive commercial success. Written by Charles Crichton and comedy genius John Cleese, “A Fish Called Wanda” is the perfect heist comedy film with brilliant writing, hilarious scenes, romance, adventure, and a stunningly gorgeous Jamie Lee Curtis as the star female lead.
Playing the seductive con artist Wanda, Curtis teams up with Kevin Kline to con a wealthy barrister, played by John Cleese. However, she’s also trying to con Kline and their other gang partner – hell breaks loose when the plan starts to entangle, and it’s simply impossible not to laugh and enjoy every minute of it.
A massive commercial hit that made Michael Cera and Jonah Hill’s careers, “Superbad” is one of those films that you can watch a million times and still cry with laughter every time as if you’d never seen it. Cera and Hill play two co-dependent high schoolers that decide to team up with a nerd from the class named Fogell (a.k.a. McLovin’), who is played by Christopher Mintz-Plasse, and get a fake ID to buy alcohol for a party.
Getting alcohol is absolutely essential for the boys if they want to impress their high school crushes (one of them played by Emma Stone). With Seth Rogen and Bill Hader as hilariously insane and corrupt cops, the film is a brilliant teen comedy that has its star-studded cast at its absolute best.
National Lampoon’s Animal House
This 1978 John Landis classic is a delight to watch, not just because of the film’s hilariously well-written script, but also thanks to the performances of John Belushi, Tim Matheson, Tom Hulce, and Stephen Furst. When Hulce and Furst arrive at college, they try to join a snobby fraternity but are turned down outright.
So they decide to try another less prestigious fraternity called the Delta Tau Chi House and are welcomed with open arms. The problem is that the college’s dean will stop at nothing to close down the Deltas, and they’re not letting that happen. The film is the original “college comedy movie” in what would become a long line of successors.
Meet the Parents
Everything that can possibly go wrong for groom-to-be Ben Stiller's character, Greg Focker, does. Despite the occasional sitcom-like execution, "Meet the Parents" is a laughable look at familial relationships that works primarily because the chemistry between its two leads (Rober De Niro and Ben Stiller) is so compelling.
De Niro has never been funnier as his soon-to-be son-in-law tries his best to impress. With De Niro's character being an ex-special agent, he pulls at all stops to ensure the man marrying his daughter is worthy. And when you get to know De Niro in this movie, you realize that no matter what, no one will ever be worthy.
Mrs. Doubtfire might seem excessively sentimental and even silly as we're writing this. Along with Sally Field and Pierce Brosnan, Robin Williams shines brightly as a dad who tries to stay in his kids’ lives by hatching an elaborate plan. He dresses up as an older woman so he can get hired to be their nanny.
What follows is a lot of meddling from Robin Williams as he can't help but take many risks. Fun facts: many of William's lines in the movie were improvised, it took almost four hours to do the makeup, and his paycheck for the role was an astonishing 20 million big ones.
