The best funny movies on Hulu:
Editor’s note: We will be updating this list as more comedies debut on Hulu and others are removed from the service.
Released in 2019, this is not just one of the best funny movies on Hulu, it may be the best comedy film on the service right now. Actress Olivia Wilde made her directorial debut with Booksmart. It centers on two high school seniors who are about to graduate.
They figured out that they spent far too much time studying and not enough time just having fun. So, naturally, the duo decide to cram all that missing fun into one wild night. It’s not exactly a realistic look at high school life. However, Booksmart will make you laugh a lot while watching the antics of these two students, and the other folks they encounter.
2. Sorry to Bother You
This 2018 dark comedy comes from rapper Boots Riley in his excellent debut as a film writer and director. Lakeith Stanfield plays a black man who pays the bills as a telemarketer and then discovers he can be more successful by using his “white voice.”
Riley uses his film at first to makes some points about race relations, but later he and the movie go off in a whole other direction that we won’t reveal here. It’s funny, thought-provoking and, thankfully, entertaining as well. This is a no-brainer as one of the best movies on Hulu.
3. Grown Ups
A group of high school friends reunites long after their teen years. Sadly, this reunion is product of their basketball coach’s death. The group gets together in a lake house. They do a bunch of crazy stuff and get in plenty of trouble, which results in a series of very comic events, making this one of the best funny movies on Hulu. These guys are also reminded about what really matters in life, though. As it goes with any Happy Madison Productions film, things can get a little cheesy.
4. The Hustle
Penny and Josephine are con artists, albeit of different levels. They find themselves trying to take riches from wealthy men on the French riviera. Things get quite competitive and very funny. They get into some deep trouble, and even end up meeting their con artist idol, who is known as “Medusa.”
Peg Dahl (Zoey Deutch) grew up in Buffalo, New York. She never identified with her hometown and wants to go to a faraway Ivy League school. The protagonist soon realizes university is expensive, though. She must somehow get enough money and becomes a debt collector. No easy profession, and you can already assume it will make for some good laughs.
6. The Interview
Dave and Aaron run a popular talk show named Skylark Tonight in this political satire comedy. Urging for change, the duo is desperate to create more meaningful content, and they happen to discover North Korean leader Kim Jong-un is a fan of the show. They manage to get an interview with him, but the US government is quick to act upon this. USA authorities want the team to assassinate Kim. Things get pretty wild and funny, and you know actors Seth Rogen and James Franco will spark plenty a laugh.
This is definitely among the best funny movies on Hulu, but it is also a very controversial one. So much that North Korea threatened with actions against the USA if Sony released the movie. The film had to be delayed and edited to North Korean acceptable levels. This movie was an interesting part of the history of conflict between the USA and North Korea.
A few years before James Gunn entered the Marvel Cinematic Universe with Guardians of the Galaxy, he wrote and directed another type of superhero film. Released in 2010, this dark comedy stars Rainn Wilson who has a psychotic break after his wife leaves him for a drug dealer. He makes a superhero outfit, and fights crime by swinging a big wrench into the heads of “bad guys.” Needless to say, this is not a superhero film for the kids. It shows a much more realistic look at how masked vigilantes might actually operate in the real world.
8. Isn’t It Romantic?
New York architect Natalie is having a hard time getting recognized for her efforts at work. Love is another department she has never had luck in, but everything changes one day when she gets knocked out in a subway mugging. She wakes up in a romantic comedy filled with all cliches.
9. Instant Family
Adopting kids through the foster care system is a great choice, but not when kids have no interest in being parented. This is exactly what Pete and Ellie must endure after trying to start an “instant family.” Conflict is plentiful, but love will always endure. Give it a watch and have some fun with these kids’ mischief.
10. Fighting With Family
Paige grew up with a family of wrestlers who run shows for the locals in Norwich, England. Their dreams seem to be coming true as Paige moves up the ranks in the WWE. She must struggle with the hardships of entering this exclusive world as she struggles with family issues.
This movie is emotional, inspirational, and really funny, making it one of the best funny movies on Hulu.
