im电竞官网-Often it can feel like a good laugh is hard to come by, but we all need one every once in a while. It’s necessary, for the sake of sanity, to seek out something to lift your spirits even on the darkest of days. Comedy is the perfect outlet, accessible from the safety of your couch, to make you smile when you’re craving that brief escape—especially when you can’t handle any more tear-jerking dramas or eye-opening documentaries.
im电竞官网-Thankfully, Netflix has accumulated a quality collection of lighter hits that are sure to make you smile—or maybe even laugh out loud. If you don’t have the energy to focus on something new, there are plenty of old favorites that still do the trick even after your tenth rewatch. Here are some of our best suggestions that Netflix has to offer for a much needed laugh, from dark humor to rom coms to award-winning dramedies.
Tootsie is one of those rare comedies that absolutely smashed at the Academy Awards. With 10 Academy Award nominations and an eventual musical adaptation, Tootsie follows the story of Michael Dorsey (Dustin Hoffman) whose reputation as an actor has become so bad that he has to take on a new identity... as a woman. It's chaos, and it's wonderful.
Remember when Katherine Heigl was the rom-com queen? Man, what a time. Starring alongside Josh Duhamel, the two become surprise parents after their couple-friends die in an accident (no, seriously, the movie is funny). The rest follows the duo as they try to coparent. Heigl is uptight. Duhamel is fun but irresponsible. You know the drill.
Ah, yes. The film where James Franco and Seth Rogen actually pissed off North Korea. What starts as a movie where the two play a journalist and producer who go to interview Kim Jong-Un turns into an insane tale where the CIA asks them to kill the leader. It's full of laughs and also just a hair of political anxiety. You know, like life!

im电竞官网-In 1967, British spy Austin Powers escapes his nemesis, Dr. Evil, who then cryogenically freezes himself. Powers volunteers to do the same, in case Evil ever comes back. Thirty years later, that’s exactly what happens. Evil is back, and Powers, also newly unfrozen, has to acclimate to the ’90s and save the world from evil, baby.
A bit more on the serious side, Okja is more of a satire than it is a full-fledged comedy. When the Mirando Corporation takes Okja, a giant unnamed animal, for their own use the animal’s 10-year-old friend Mija hops into action to save him.
The Other Guys has all the perfect parts for a great comedy. Adam McKay directs. Ice-T narrates. And Mark Wahlberg and Will Ferrell star as two pencil-pushing NYPD detectives who get the opportunity to prove they’re up for more than just paperwork.
Just to be clear, John Mulaney and the Sack Lunch Bunch is extremely weird and niche, but its surrealism is a delight to watch. Filmed like an after-school activity, it quickly veers into weird territory and never looks back.
im电竞官网-This John Hughes film from the ‘80s is one of the ultimate coming of age comedies. The plot? Nothing more than skipping a day of school in the most extra way possible, but Matthew Broderick, along with Mia Sara and Alan Ruck turned it into a masterpiece.
The Coen Brothers teamed up with the streaming service for this Netflix original, an anthology film featuring six stories set in the American west that's full of outlaws, pioneer women, double-crossing, and one singing cowboy.

im电竞官网-This irreverent and energetic movie stars Michael Cera as a slacker musician who hits the romantic jackpot when he meets his new girlfriend Ramona Flowers—but must defeat her seven evil exes in manic, video game-inspired fashion.
im电竞官网-Jason Sudeikis and Alison Brie play a pair of serial daters who can't commit, and find perfect matches in each other—even if they turn out to be committed to only having sex with each other.
im电竞官网-Daniel Radcliffe stars as a (wait for it) corpse in this surreal buddy-comedy in which Paul Dano makes great use of his dead friend's body after washing up on a deserted island.
Seth Rogen and Elizabeth Banks star as roommates who find an enterprising way to pay their rent—although it definitely complicates their friendship.
