Life can be tough, but thankfully, we’ve got movies to tickle our funny bone! Over the last few years, we’ve been treated to some side-splitting films. Some are so funny they might become classics one day. While others might not reach “all-time favorite” status, they sure do make us giggle for a bit. The top recent comedy hits help us put our worries on pause. They leave us feeling lighter and brighter, and that’s always worth a watch.
Today’s comedies are all about big names like Melissa McCarthy, Seth Rogen, Kevin Hart, Tiffany Haddish, and Amy Schumer. They’re the ones setting the comedy stage on fire right now.
