Let us guess: It’s been a rough week, hasn’t it? At the office, the workload is piling up and your boss is riding you harder than I’ll Have Another’s jockey before the horse’s sidelining injury. Outside of the office, in the presence of the old ball-and-chain, every word you say gets misconstrued and turned into some kind of verbal assault. You can’t seem to catch a break or have a moment of peace in your life. Well, we know exactly what you need, and that’s to sit down, fire up the Netflix account, and watch a good, old-fashioned horror movie… Actually, scratch that. A scary movie is exactly what you don’t need right now. Rather, you need some uninterrupted and uncontrollable belly laughs.
And there’s no better source for that kind of comic relief than a purely funny movie. Shit, how about 25 of them? Having scoured through the online film rental website’s catalog of watch-now comedies, we’ve assembled the following list of The 25 Best Comedy Movies Streaming on Netflix Right Now, covering the complete spectrum of cinematic guffaws. If none of these cure those aforementioned real-world stresses, don’t fret—there are plenty of non-comedic options on Netflix for you to choose from. Both horror and romance movies can be great 2-hour escapes from reality. If you still feel that these lists of movies are too limited, be sure to check out our list of The 100 Best Movies Streaming on Netflix Right Now. And of course you can always binge-watch a great TV show if two hours just isn’t long enough to make you forget your troubles. We, however, think that laughter is always the best medicine.
