It's been a long, hard week. Need a bit of levity. We can stream through movies2k .
Or, suggestion of a new series...just finished Veep.
Started Vikings, but didn't rate it.

Try Shaun Of The Dead. I've seen it about 20 times and still find new things to laugh at. Beware though, it contains many swears and loads of zombies.

Seen Shaun of the dead, and hot fuzz. Brilliant films, but want a new one really.
Something like the anchor man, or bridesmaids.
No rom coms!

Zoolander? Princess Bride? Ghostbusters?

I've been rewatching the complete Buffy The Vampire Slayer recently and I think it's held up pretty well .

Office Space. An American friend recommended it, it's great, especially if you work in an office.

Rollergirl1 Sun 05-Apr-15 17:36:01

Horrible Bosses is funny. Or Get him to the Greek is surprisingly good (despite having Russell Brand)

jerryfudd Sun 05-Apr-15 17:37:53

Office space is good
We're the Millers had me crying laughing
Enjoyed the heat too

Bolshybookworm Sun 05-Apr-15 17:44:14

I liked the Heat too. I'm also a sucker for dodgeball.

Blended with Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore is good.

'This is 40' had me snorting indelicately all the way through. go for the extended version but only if you don't mind swears!

exWifebeginsat40 Sun 05-Apr-15 17:57:56

also 'Friends with Benefits' which is refreshingly sweet and very rude and has Justin Timberlake in it.

I hate most Hollywood 'funny' films but I did like Bad Teacher a lot.

LadyIsabellaWrotham Sun 05-Apr-15 18:19:58

Yes, Dodgeball is good, or Blades of Glory.

Zinxie Sun 05-Apr-15 19:21:15

Casa di ma padre, if you like will Ferrell.

Alpha papa, if you like Steve Coogan.

Stepbrothers. I hate comedy films, but that film is epic

JohnFarleysRuskin Sun 05-Apr-15 19:28:47

Date night?

Moln Sun 05-Apr-15 19:31:48

have to say Get him to the Greek is funny - and as Rollergirl1 said despite the fact Russel Brand is in it.

Bad Teacher is good too I agree, and Stepbrothers - I love Superbad.

I was going to claim I also dislike american funny films but it seems I do (well recent ones - loathe the Airplane ones)

Can't think of a decent series off the top of my head (though i really like Vikings so I might be good to recommend one)

LostMyBaubles Sun 05-Apr-15 19:32:45

Ahh you need the heat!!

Zinxie Sun 05-Apr-15 19:32:52

Parks and Rec is a fab comedy series.

HomeIsWhereTheHeartIs Sun 05-Apr-15 19:45:43

If you like films with subtitles, Untouchable us one of the best and funniest films I've ever seen.

Bolshybookworm Sun 05-Apr-15 19:59:54

Parks and rec is awesome. I love Ron Swanson grin

AngryBeaver Mon 06-Apr-15 05:58:01

Thanks guys, seen everyone of those films apart form the will feral one. And untouchable us (not OVERLY keen on subtitles, as I find it distracting!)
Also see parks and rec and love it.
Back to the drawing board?

HellKitty Mon 06-Apr-15 06:15:01

Bad Grandpa?
We had to pause it twice, once because I pulled a stomach muscle and the second time because DP was laughing so much he needed his inhaler. Toilet humour at its best (worst?).

Happynow Mon 06-Apr-15 06:25:20

Forgetting Sarah Marshall or Arrested Development?

If you like political comedy you may enjoy Alpha House. I have watched the first two series via Amazon Prime so not sure if you can get it.

It is by Gary Tredeau who does the Doonesbury cartoon that runs in The Guardian. It is about 4 Republican senators who have a house share in Washington. It stars the wonderful John Goodman.

For something a lot darker House of Cards with Kevin Spacey is gripping.
