15 Best Movies to Watch When You Just Need a Laugh

“Everybody makes mistakes. Everybody has those days.” See? Hannah Montana totally gets life. She knows what it’s like to have a sucky day, just like us common folk. Whether it’s one of those days (or weeks) where your car breaks down, some weird brown gunk gets on your pants from the subway, your sink gets clogged, you mess up at work, or, worst of all, you’re all out of wine and Trader Joe’s is closed, you just have to breathe and figure out what’s going to make your day end on a positive note. For me, that’s a funny movie and a glass of wine (I told you being out of wine was bad).

Sometimes you just need to jump on your couch or get under your comforter and munch on some peanut-butter-filled pretzels while you watch a movie that’s going to make you seriously laugh. Honestly, it’s pretty magical how cure-all a good laugh can be. Whether it’s a belly laugh, a snort, a chuckle, or a giggle, there’s nothing better than a movie that will lift your spirits. I mean, what else is going to make the memory of your clogged sink go away? (Again, that’s when the wine comes in handy.)

Check out some of the best flicks to watch when you’re in need of a good ol’ laugh.

‘WET HOT AMERICAN SUMMER’

‘CRAZY, STUPID, LOVE’

MEAN GIRLS

ROMY AND MICHELE’S HIGH SCHOOL REUNION

‘MOONRISE KINGDOM’

THE ROOM

LEGALLY BLONDE

A California sorority sister attempting to get her Harvard law degree? Yes, please. (Plus, you can’t pass on a chance to watch Reese Witherspoon at her pinkest prime.)

50/50

21 JUMP STREET

People had their doubts about this film, but I think it’s been officially proven that Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum are the most unlikely-yet-hysterical pair of cops ever. They just go together so well.

CADDYSHACK

If you’re a fan of hijinks or any type of tomfoolery, then you’ll probably love every single eccentric character in this comedy. Bill Murray’s in it, after all! And a gopher!

BRIDESMAIDS

SHREK

If you want a case of the giggles, just turn on Shrek . From Donkey to Pinocchio to Lord Farquaad, this animated comedy is definitely not just for kids.

ANCHORMAN

Not everyone’s an Anchorman fan, but if you are, then this ’70s-inspired flick will have you wondering why all news broadcasts aren’t done by Will Ferrell. And why Steve Carell can’t always play Brick.
