The 100 best comedy movies

Get ready to giggle with our list of the best funny movies ever made, voted for by more than 200 comedy experts whose job it is to make you laugh

Everyone loves a laugh – but which would you say are the best comedy movies of all time? We asked a host of comedians, actors, directors and writers to share their favourite funny movies – it didn’t matter if their choices were old, new, mainstream or weird, or whether they picked romantic comedies, mockumentaries, teen movies or something completely surreal. As long as they were designed to target our funny bones and get us giggling, we wanted to know.

The result is a definitive list of the top comedy movies ever made. These are the films guaranteed to leave you grinning wildly, rubbing your ribs and gasping for air in between whip-smart one-liners and clever visual gags. Some are established comedy classics that have been influencing filmmakers for years, while others are recent smash hits that have pushed the boundaries of what can be done in the world of cinema.

Like our other countdowns of the best romantic movies and horror films, you can find out how many films in our comedy movies list you’ve seen, or take a look at the top tens of our comedy experts. And if you think we’re having a laugh with our choices, you can let us know by leaving a comment below.
