5 Hilarious Movies So Funny You’ll Cry Laughing

Humor, like beauty, is in the eye of the beholder. We all have our certain tastes when it comes to humor – slapstick, parody, screwball, gross-out, romantic, mockumentary, and even black comedy – but sometimes it can be broken down as simple as guy humor versus gal humor. For that reason, we have put together a list of the 10 Funniest Movies That Will Make You Laugh Until You Cry, and we feel the list represents a good mixture of both guy and gal humor.The “Holy Grail” of Monty Python films. It has been almost 50 years since the premiere of the sidesplittingly funny Monty Python and the Holy Grail, a film that parodied the legend of King Arthur and his quest for the holy grail.

Nothing was off limits in the film that was written by the Monty Python troupe of Graham Chapman, John Cleese, Eric Idle, Terry Gilliam, Terry Jones, and Michael Palin.

The humor was definitely British, but it tickled the funny bone of many. Unlike their first movie, And Now for Something Completely Different, which was more a compilation of Monty Python sketches, this story was an original that played with the Arthurian legend. 50 years later and it still brings many laughs.Make no mistake about it, Airplane! should be at the top of ANYONE’S 10 funniest movies list when it comes to films that will make you laugh until you cry. The film, put together by the wonderful trio of brothers David and Jerry Zucker along with close pal Jim Abrahams, is often considered the best in parody films and always in the top five of funniest movies ever.

The jokes are rapid-fire ranging from sight gags to silly dialogue and while some may fall flat, there are plenty more that hit the bullseye. The film stars Robert Hays and Julie Hagerty (who do a great Saturday Night Fever dance routine in the film) as well as a number of dramatic actors, who play against type.

Those include Robert Stack, Lloyd Bridges, Peter Graves, and in a role as Dr. Rumack that he turned into a late-career comedy boon, Leslie Nielsen. You may better know him as Sergeant/Detective/Lieutenant Frank Drebin of The Naked Gun fame. How could we not include The Naked Gun on this list?

Airplane! is parody at its best. It also gave way to a few more hilarious parody films created by Zucker/Zucker and Abrahams that included The Kentucky Fried Movie, Top Secret!, and of course The Naked Gun trilogy.Rob Reiner (A Few Good Men) made his directorial debut with this mockumentary film about “one of England’s loudest bands,” Spinal Tap. It was a critical success out of the gate but took a little bit of time to find its audience. When it did find its audience, fans understood why it’s considered to be one of the 10 funniest movies that will make you laugh until you cry.

The film stars Michael McKean, Christopher Guest, and Harry Shearer as Spinal Tap band members with Rob Reiner as a documentary filmmaker following around the band as they embark on their U.S. tour. The band is touring the United States as they promote their new album, Smell the Glove. The mockumentary takes a funny look at rock bands and their pretensions and behaviors and has the distinction of being known as the film that pretty much started the mockumentary genre.

Over the years, Guest has capitalized on the genre by churning out other mockumentary comedies such as Waiting for Guffman, Best in Show, A Mighty Wind, and For Your Consideration. With all of these films, Guest has used many of the same comedic actors.What happens when you mix comedy with flesh-eating zombies? You get Shaun of the Dead, a hilarious horror romp from the minds of Simon Pegg and Edgar Wright. The film, which stars Pegg as Shaun, a London electronics salesman who has no life direction, also stars Nick Frost as Ed, his flatmate who finds themselves caught up in a zombie apocalypse.

Shaun of the Dead is filled with great comedy as it tackles the seriousness of surviving a zombie apocalypse.

If belly laughs are what you like in your movie-going experiences, then the above movies will surely fit the bill. None of them are meant to be taken seriously, and even if they were, you probably couldn’t. Give each and everyone a try, you won’t be disappointed.The premise of the film may sound familiar, but the results are very different. Superbad tells the story of Seth and Evan (Jonah Hill and Michael Cera), two seniors in high school who are about to graduate and want to party and lose their virginity (American Pie, anyone?). The film, written by Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg (the same name as the characters), is based on the writers’ experience as seniors themselves and why we consider it to be one of the 10 funniest movies to make you laugh until you cry.

While Hill and Cera carry the movie, the gem is Christopher Mintz-Plasse as Fogell, who becomes better known as McLovin. The hijinks are high, and the humor and language give the film a well-deserved R-rating.
