Pip pip cheerio! This week’s theme is British comedies. I’ve listed five funny movies from our neighbors across the pond. Check them out on Netflix for a jolly good time!
1. The Inbetweeners Movie (2011)
Based off the popular sitcom (also on Netflix), we see the four boys embark on a life changing vacation. They’re out of high school and they need to celebrate becoming men. Join them on an alcohol fueled Greek adventure filled with romance, lust, more alcohol, and male nudity. It’s a fun series of embarrassing situations that make you glad that you’re not a teenager anymore.
2. Four Lions (2010)
Terrorism isn’t a funny subject. However, this movie changes that. Imagine the Three Stooges attempting suicide bombings and you have Four Lions. The movie is much more than just bumbling wanna-be terrorists. At its core the movie is about people trying to be something they’re not. Look for a small cameo from Benedict Cumberbatch.
3. Severance (2006)
If you’re a fan of dark humor and horror, then this is the movie for you. There’s a lot of blood with subtle jokes sprinkled on top. The movie takes the stereotypical notion of teens trapped in the woods and replaces it with generally dysfunctional corporate employees on a weekend retreat. Needless to say, the weekend goes horribly wrong.
4. Bunny and the Bull (2009)
This is a very charming little movie that will constantly keep your attention. Not only is this a good comedy, it is also one of the most visually interesting movies that I’ve seen. The film’s fantastic cast includes actors from The Mighty Boosh and The IT Crowd.
Monty Python. Nothing more to say.
