10 best comedy movies on Amazon Prime Video

Borat Subsequent Moviefilm

October 23, 2020

When you’re a journalist from Kazakhstan exploring the United States of America for the first time “the cultural differences are … vast.” If you’re a fan of jaw-dropping cringe comedy, Borat will fit the bill nicely. Comedian Sacha Baron Cohen goes undercover as he interacts with real people to expose how they really think. This is the sequel to the original 2004 comedy blockbuster, and it features just as many crazy stunts, hilarious interviews, and unexpected cameos.

Logan Lucky

August 17, 2017

What better way to break a family curse than with a robbery? And when better to break in than during the Coca-Cola 600 race at the famed Charlotte Motor Speedway? Oceans 11 director Steven Soderbergh gets behind the wheels of a zany comedy heist starring Channing Tatum and Adam Driver.

Knives Out

November 27, 2019

At first glance, Knives Out may not seem like a comedy. But, as is the case with much of Rian Johnson’s work, nothing is as simple as it seems. Daniel Craig plays the suave detective Benoit Blanc, who must get to the bottom of a murder mystery… and he’s can’t eliminate any suspects among an all-star cast. Also, Chris Evans is having a blast as a character 180 degrees from Captain America.

The Truman Show

June 4, 1998

Truman Burbank is the star of The Truman Show, a 24-hour-a-day reality TV show that broadcasts every aspect of his life without his knowledge. His entire life has been an unending soap opera for consumption by the rest of the world. And everyone he knows, including his wife and his best friend is really an actor, paid to be part of his life.

Clue

December 13, 1985

“Clue” like the board game? Exactly. Mr. Boddy has been murdered and six colorful dinner guests are all pointing fingers. A cult classic film about a cult classic board game is about as wacky as you’d expect! The beloved movie has a killer cast and a unique ending that’s never been duplicated.

The Royal Tenenbaums

October 5, 2001

Remember when you missed your kid’s eighth grade graduation and she never let you forget it? Imagine what would happen if, as the result of a separation, you abandoned your three brilliant kids for 20 years they all blamed you for their subsequent failures. Is it possible to make amends for past mistakes? What’s the cost of forgiveness after decades of neglect and apathy? From Gene Hackman to Bill Murray to Gwyneth Paltrow, Anjelica Huston, and Ben Stiller, this ensemble comedy from Wes Anderson is a Swiss watch of dysfunction, high emotion, and genuine laughs.

Dazed and Confused

September 24, 1993

The adventures of a group of Texas teens on their last day of school in 1976, centering on student Randall Floyd, who moves easily among stoners, jocks and geeks. Floyd is a star athlete, but he also likes smoking weed, which presents a conundrum when his football coach demands he sign a “no drugs” pledge.

Late Night

January 25, 2019

When talk show host Katherine Newbury (Emma Thompson) starts falling out of style for being “too old and too white” she wants to save her image and her career - even if her studio is more than happy to see her fall. The only one with the gumption to bring her mojo back is Molly Patel (Mindy Kaling) by giving her punchlines a rewrite. This title is an Amazon Original.

Thank You for Smoking

March 17, 2006

Nick Naylor is a charismatic spin-doctor for Big Tobacco who’ll fight to protect America’s right to smoke — even if it kills him — while still remaining a role model for his 12-year old son. When he incurs the wrath of a senator bent on snuffing out cigarettes, Nick’s powers of “filtering the truth” will be put to the test.

The Big Sick

March 30, 2017

Despite the culture schism that separates Pakistan-born comedian Kumail Nanjiani and grad student Emily Gardner, the pair falls in love. But a mysterious illness complicates their courtship. The two may be able to overcome adversity and embrace their differences, but will their parents follow suit? This heartfelt comedy is a wonderful twist on the traditional rom-com.
