Old school sequels, Jon Stewart, and a Will Ferrell Netflix film lead the slate of this year's funniest films.
This is gonna be a rough year, folks. No sugar coating it. It's an election year, there's a looming global pandemic. And there's really not much you can do about it. The only real antidote (not for Coronavirus, sorry) is laughter.
Sure, some titles like Irresistible from Jon Stewart might actually remind you of our current political hell, but at least it will inject some much-needed humor into it. Onward might drudge up some a few tears, but they're happy tears! We swear!
Comedy is going through a bit of a rework period right now: a strange mix of reboots and sequels, paired with satire and the occasional original idea (our bet is that Will Ferrell's Eurovision is going to be one of the best of the year). That's what this list represents—a bit of familiarity mixed with some of the most innovative minds in comedy. And if all else fails, this lineup is a good reason to rewatch Coming to America, Bill and Ted, and Bad Boys again. Go ahead and cheer yourself up with the best comedies to watch in 2020.
