Research Notes

A few things to note about the research, and list of the best comedy Netflix movies (for those of you interested to know more about our research and ranking process. Feel free to skip to the next section if you’re not interested in the technical details):

  • The movies are organised based on their rankings, starting from the lowest ranking to the highest ranking. 
  • The rankings are based on a few different variables, including our personal opinions, feedback from our focus group of readers, and the average ratings from IMDB.
  • The ratings mentioned are based on the data available on IMDB as it stands, rated on a scale of 1 to 10 (10 being highest).
  • The actors listed are the main/most noteworthy ones, rather than a list of the full cast
  • The length of the movie (duration) is based on the data from IMDB
  • The list here is based on a minimum average IMDB rating of 5 out of 10 (that was our filter, so to speak). So not every comedy movie on Netflix made the cut. That said, we did include some below 5, and here’s why – just because a movie did not have an average rating above 5 does not make it not worth watching. Some of those movies are underrated (like Kangaroo Jack), so we have included those on the list so that you can decide for yourself if they are worth watching or not. If not, however, let us know in the comments. We plan to update the list based on the feedback we receive from our readers. Your opinion matters to us.

Happiness Hack?

Laughter is the best medicine, as they say, and watching comedy movies is a great way to help you laugh. That, in turn, is a great way to boost your mood and create more positive emotions.

But that’s not all. Watching funny movies is actually a great way to hack your happiness levels, as laughing makes you happy. So if you are not feeling that great, or you need some help cheering up, watching a comedy movie can be a great shortcut for doing that. 

A bonus tip for you, just in case you need a shortcut for being happy 🙂
