Top Ten Laugh Out Loud Comedy Movies that Also Have a Great Screenplay

Often comedy movies are just a collection of jokes and funny scenes. While this in and of itself is fine, there are also some comedies that have good storytelling, and we really care about the fully developed characters. This list is about the latter.

The Top Ten

1 The Apartment
2 The Great Dictator
3 A Fish Called Wanda
4 Some Like It Hot
5 The Philadelphia Story
6 Ted 2
7 Cactus Flower
8 Tootsie
9 His Girl Friday
10 Shaun of the Dead

This movie really commits to it's multi-genre screenplay. When the movie is funny it's REALLY funny, when it wants a touching character moment you genuinely care for the characters, when it goes into horror movie territory the threat is very real.
A great movie on so many levels. - SuperSonic17
