1. Tucker & Dale vs Evil
Imagine a horror movie where the hillbillies aren’t the bad guys – mind blown, right?
A discerning Reddit user commented, “Tucker & Dale vs Evil. I wish I could erase it from my memory and watch it fresh again”
Someone else replied, “I love this movie. Tucker : These kids are coming out here, and killing themselves all over the woods. Dale : My God, that makes so much sense.”
2. The Death of Stalin
Now, let’s talk about “The Death of Stalin.” Political satire meets a bunch of power-hungry dudes trying to figure out who’s in charge after Stalin kicks the bucket. A Reddit user wrote, “The Death of Stalin. I am originally from the UK and approve this film.”
Someone commented, “I remember when this movie came out, but totally missed it and forgot it existed. Just watched it. Thanks for rec!”
3. Swiss Army Man
One Redditor stated, “Swiss Army Man (2016). I cannot think of a movie that I said “what” more times while watching than this one, that’s for sure.”
Another person agreed to it and said, “What an absolute gem. Such a weird/stupid movie but fantastic.”
Paul Dano and Daniel Radcliffe redefine the buddy comedy in a way you never saw coming.
4. Being John Malkovich
A discerning Reddit user commented, “Being John Malkovich. It is humorous-ish. And a masterpiece.”
Someone else replied, “This movie is so good and so absurd but it really packs an emotion punch too. I was floored by it”
You’ll be scratching your head, laughing, and maybe questioning your sanity a bit. But that’s the genius of it.
5. Sorry to Bother You
Boots Riley takes you on a ride through telemarketing, corporate absurdity, and a world where selling out takes on a whole new meaning.
A Reddit user wrote, “Sorry to Bother You. I’ve got to credit the marketing for this film in correctly preparing me for a weird movie, but not spoiling how monumentally weird it would become.”
Someone commented, “Came here for this! More WHAT than most of the movies here and still a total delight.”
6. Tropic Thunder
One Redditor stated, “Tropic Thunder. I remember when I first watched this movie and the commercials in the beginning had me almost fooled lmao. it was a great way to introduce the characters!”
Another person agreed to it and said, “I cannot think of a movie that I said “what” more times while watching than this one, that’s for sure.”
Ben Stiller, Jack Black, and Robert Downey Jr. – yes, Iron Man himself – take the term “method acting” to a whole new level.
7. What We Do in the Shadows
Ever wondered what vampire roommates are like? Well, this mockumentary spills the undead tea.
A Reddit user wrote, “What we do in the shadows. The show is great for this too. Honestly, it’s hard to pick which is funnier.”
Someone else replied, “I agree. It’s amazing how funny the movie trailer is, but essentially all those jokes are only in the first ten minutes of the movie. Then the entire movie is hilarious. Then you get to the show and it manages to not just rehash what the movie did, but make a great compliment to the movie.”
8. Ruthless People
Kidnapping gone wrong, a scheming wife, and a kooky cast of characters – it’s a recipe for laughter
A discerning Reddit user commented, “Ruthless People. This movie is so underrated that it’s almost been forgotten.”
Someone commented, “Ruthless people!!!!! I tell everyone I know to watch it so they can answer me when I yell “WHAT IS GOING ON?” “I’M ROBBING YOU!”
10. Very Bad Things
A Reddit user wrote, “Very Bad Things. Peter Berg is a great director”
Someone else replied, “I love this movie so much I was judging it really hard at the start because I thought it was just gonna be about how they go crazy and cheat out the wazoo on this stag holiday but when I hit the weed pen and the casino scene started and I was like ohhhhh I could get into this and then …. well, you know. It switches up to say the least.”
It’s a comedic explosion, and you won’t know whether to applaud or just roll on the floor laughing.
11. I Heart Huckabees
A discerning Reddit user commented, “I Heart Huckabees. My absolute favorite”
Someone commented, “One day, my children will see this film, and their gonna be like? I sang ‘picking out a thermos for you’, to them as babies, and use quotes from this film so much. the “and this” scene, I launch into any time I forget something leaving the house,”
It’s absurd, it’s deep, and it’s so funny that you might just start questioning the meaning of laughter.
12. Movie 43
One Redditor stated, “Movie 43. Has to be one of the funniest movies I’ve ever watched.”
Another replied, “How is this not the top answer?! Movie 43 needs to be upvoted so much higher.”

Knights, coconuts, a killer rabbit – need we say more? This movie is the epitome of absurd humor.

Someone else replied, “I kept thinking that this can’t get any more ridiculous and then it does. Such a beautiful movie as well.”
14. Four Rooms
“Four Rooms” is a wild ride through, you guessed it, four hotel rooms. Each room has its own bizarre story, and Tim Roth, the bellhop, is just trying to survive the night. You’ve even got witches, dead bodies, and Quentin Tarantino as a creepy hotel guest!
A discerning Reddit user commented, “Four Rooms (1995), It’s a tradition in this household to watch this every NYE.”
Another person agreed to it and said, “This is the perfect suggestion. So many moments of this movie totally live in my head.”
15. The Greasy Strangler
It’s a horror-comedy about a father and son who run a disco walking tour and may or may not be the infamous “Greasy Strangler.” It’s greasy, it’s strange, and it’s the kind of movie that you can’t unsee.
One Redditor stated, “The Greasy Strangler. An unheralded masterpiece.”
Someone else replied, “Greasy Strangler should be number one on this thread. It’s like Napoleon Dynamite with a darker plot.”
16. In Bruges
A Reddit user wrote, “In Bruges. As a film, this is assuredly the best of the three. Starring Colin Farrell and Brendan Gleeson as two Irish hitmen hiding out in Bruges, Belgium, the film is outrageously entertaining.”
Someone commented, “Gleeson is dependably brilliant. And Ralph Fiennes steals every scene he’s in.”
It’s a crime comedy that’s as charming as the canals of Bruges – and possibly even more entertaining.
17. Better off Dead
From skiing down K12, the infamous paperboy with a vengeance, to Cusack’s mom cooking meals that could qualify for biological warfare – it’s a teenage nightmare in the best way possible.

19. Greener Grass
One Redditor stated, “Greener Grass. More people need to watch this awesome movie, lol.”
Someone commented, “the most perfect movie that combines comedy with “what”.”
You’ll be quoting lines and wondering why your high school years weren’t this hilariously chaotic.
20. Death at a Funeral
Imagine a family gathering for a funeral that turns into a chaotic comedy of errors. Misplaced bodies, mistaken identities, and a secret or two that we won’t spoil for you!
A Reddit user commented, “Death At a Funeral, but specifically the one from 2007 with Peter Dinklage and Alan Tudyk.”
Another person agreed to it and said, “I think at least Dinklage is in both but yes, paralyzingly hilarious film.”
