In this post we share 5 of our funniest movies to get you through Corona Virus boredom.

Because we’re all stuck inside twiddling our thumbs looking for things to do we thought we’d share some funny films you might like to watch.

These movies are guaranteed to give you a few chuckles and are not ranked in any particular order.

Let’s check out those cinematic sensations right now…

Everyone’s favorite movie featuring a very bad santa, actor Billy Bob Thornton.

This is not your average Christmas movie: it’s a little dark, but still very funny and super-entertaining.

The basic story is Willie T. Soke/Bad Santa (Billy Bob Thornton) and his dwarf assistant Marcus Skidmore (Tony Cox) are professional thieves who rob shopping centres at night.

Bad Santa has a bit of a drinking problem – that’s why he’s known as “Bad Santa” – but deep down, he has a good heart.

He befriends a little fat kid who is being bullied… it has a happy ending, but you’ll have to watch it yourself to really get more details!

This movie revolves around the relationship between Robert De Niro (the father of the girlfriend) and Ben Stiller (the boyfriend).

Greg Focker (Ben Stiller) is a male nurse in love with Pam Byrnes (played by Teri Polo).

Greg goes to meet Pam’s parents, including her father Jack Byrnes, played beautifully by Robert De Niro.

Greg Focker needs his girlfriend’s parents’ approval to marry their daughter – mom is pretty chill.

However, Jack is an ex-CIA operative and is very suspicious of Greg.

All sorts of hilarious mayhem happens as Greg tries overly hard to impress Jack, but poor ol’ Greg (the boyfriend) mostly ends up making a total fool of himself.

Worth watching to see Robert De Niro’s charismatic performance.

3. This Is Spinal Tap

This Is Spinal Tap is a comedy/musical featuring the fictional heavy metal band Spinal Tap.

The fictitious band Spinal Tap consists of American comedians and musicians Michael McKean (as lead singer and co-lead guitarist David St. Hubbins), Christopher Guest (as lead guitarist Nigel Tufnel) and Harry Shearer (as bassist Derek Smalls).

It’s a very funny movie – or “mockumentary” ( mock and documentary) – a movie showing events that are not actually real but it’s presented as if it were real.

It’s known as “the funniest rock movie ever made”.

Spinal Tap go on a comeback tour and a series of mishaps and hilarious stage events make this a must-see silly but funny film full of cliches about heavy metal bands.

4. The Mask

Stanley Ipkiss (Jim Carrey) finds a mask which, when he wears it, transforms him into a wildly entertaining outgoing character who can do whatever he imagines.

Not only is this an entertaining film, the visual effects are amazing!

It’s worth seeing just for the CGI and outrageous cartoon-style fun.

Jim Carrey is brilliant in this movie – quite possibly his best role in a film. He is transformed from a meek and mild bank clerk into an outrageous larger-than-life green-faced dude!

The Mask also stars Cameron Diaz as the bad guy’s girlfriend.

It’s the type of awesome film that you can see again and again and always enjoy!

5. Dirty Rotten Scoundrels

Dirty Rotten Scoundrels features two international con artists (Michael Caine and Steve Martin) taking money and praying on gullible wealthy women up and down the Riviera.

The premise of this movie does sound quite awful – a couple of thieves preying on unsuspecting women and tricking them into parting with their riches.

However, the film does have a light-hearted feel to it, thanks to the acting skills of the two main actors.

There is a major plot twist, but I don’t want to give too much away!

Basically, the two con artists end up slugging it out against each other to capture the affections of the latest target for their con.

It’s a big surprise ending and well worth the wait – super ending you won’t see coming!
