Most Underrated Comedy Movies


The Top Ten

1 Top Secret!
2 The Milagro Beanfield War
3 The Russians Are Coming, the Russians Are Coming!
4 Just My Luck

There were so many factors that made me smile all through the movie. I have loved watching Lindsay Lohan in Mean Girls and Chris Pine in the Princess Diaries 2, but seeing them together in one movie was bliss. - Alexandr

I want this movie cause it makes me smile afterwards^_^

and I like lindsay the way she acts in this movie and congrats!

5 Bullets Over Broadway
6 Catch 22
7 Trees Lounge
8 The Princess Bride
9 Elvira, Mistress of the Dark

I highly recommend this movie. The movie is funny, entertaining and well, it's something only Elvira can deliver! Long live Elvira; we need more of these kind of movies. There are never enough. - Alexandr

10 Stop! Or My Mom Will Shoot

This movie is not only just exciting because of all the action out there, but this movie is also funny because this is an action-comedy film, ala "Rush Hour. "
"Stop! Or My Mom Will Shoot" is, in my opinion, one of the funniest, most amusing action-comedies out there. This movie is excellent when doing chores, sitting down, or just plain bored. This movie is just genius! - Alexandr

The Contenders

11 Junior

This was Arnie's funniest movie ever. The scene where arnold poses as a women why was overdosed on steriods by the german olympic team was hillarous. A must see film. - Alexandr

12 Heartbreakers

It wasn't flop but it deserved much bigger recognition. The whole cast was marvelous - Alexandr

13 What About Bob?
14 Swept Away

I enjoyed this delightful movie very, very much. Madonna's acting may not be Shakespearian, but she is perfect in the role of a filthy-rich, sassy, spoiled bitch who is suddenly confronted with a bold reality where her little world loses all meaning. I cannot imagine a better actress for the role.
You can't judge a book by it's cover. - Alexandr

15 Blast From the Past

"Blast from the Past" does what it set out to do and it does it beautifully. Brendan Fraser is perfect as Adam--sweet, naive, and trusting--and reinforces my feelings that he is a very underrated actor.
Alicia Silverstone is wonderful as Eve, as are Sissy Spacek and Christopher Walken as Adam's parents, and the rest of the cast. - Alexandr

Blast from the Past is a romantic comedy with witty dialogue and subtle, dark undertones. Brendan Fraser does a great job-- the whole cast is great. Alicia Silverstone got a lot of s*** for being chubby around this time, but REALLY? She's hot.

16 Made in America

This was so funny. It was fabulous. You laugh straight through, except for the part in every movie when the going gets tough. Really, Whoopi is a crazy-in-traffic mother with an attitude.
Made in America is hardly a classic but is worth watching if you like a little maturity in your comedy. - Alexandr

17 The Gods Must Be Crazy II
18 She's the Man
19 Trading Places

This movie is just plain hilarious!

20 The In-Laws (1979)
21 Moon Over Parador
22 Elvis Has Left the Building

The whole movie was very entertaining and plain fun, the actors seemed to understand that this movie is not to be taken as a dead serious comedy either and overplayed their roles suitably. Kim Basinger looked brilliant here! - Alexandr

23 The Wedding Singer
24 The Hot Chick
25 Galaxy Quest
26 Protocol
27 Big Stan
28 Porky's
29 Who's That Girl?

Better than most of the recent "comedies" that focus on "gross-out" humor.
I think Madonna has always been at least credible in her movies. - Alexandr

30 Oscar
31 Blind Date
32 Rat Race

Mr Bean. And others. I haven't watched this in a while but remember it in such a great light. Luminous light. Good movie it seemed, I'm gonna watch it soon. - marlonacott

This is an absolutely hillarious movie and it has an all star cast as well. - Shadsilvson11

33 Semi-Pro
34 It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World
35 Freddy Got Fingered
36 Grosse Pointe Blank
37 Nadine
38 Harold and Maude

This movie is so funny and really wrong on quite a few levels. - fireinside96

39 Norbit

This isn't underrated. This movie isn't that funny. It deserves the hate it gets.

40 Nacho Libre
41 Home Alone 3
42 Dogma
43 Shooting Fish

A underrated british comedy with Kate Beckinsale.

44 The Nutty Professor
45 The Nutty Professor II: The Klumps
46 Cheech and Chong's Up in Smoke
47 Harry and the Hendersons
48 The Jerk
49 The Blues Brothers
