Five Hilarious Films You've Probably Never Seen

If you're tired of rewatching the same old movies and craving some fresh laughs, look no further. Here are five hilarious films that may have flown under your radar but are guaranteed to tickle your funny bone:

1. "What We Do in the Shadows" (2014):

Directed by Taika Waititi and Jemaine Clement, "What We Do in the Shadows" is a mockumentary that follows the lives of four vampire roommates living in modern-day Wellington, New Zealand. As they navigate the challenges of immortality, including household chores and clashes with werewolves, hilarity ensues. The film's deadpan humour, clever writing, and spot-on performances make it a must-see for fans of offbeat comedy.

 

2. "The Nice Guys" (2016):

Set in 1970s Los Angeles, "The Nice Guys" is a buddy cop comedy directed by Shane Black. Starring Russell Crowe and Ryan Gosling as mismatched private investigators, the film follows their misadventures as they team up to solve a missing persons case involving a porn star and a conspiracy. With its sharp dialogue, zany characters, and over-the-top action sequences, "The Nice Guys" offers a refreshing twist on the classic buddy cop genre.

 

3. "In the Loop" (2009):

A political satire directed by Armando Iannucci, "In the Loop" is a spin-off of the acclaimed British television series "The Thick of It." Set against the backdrop of the lead-up to the Iraq War, the film follows a group of inept British and American politicians and bureaucrats as they bumble their way through diplomatic negotiations and power struggles. With its razor-sharp wit, rapid-fire dialogue, and pitch-perfect performances, "In the Loop" delivers biting satire that will leave you laughing and cringing in equal measure.

 

4. "Hunt for the Wilderpeople" (2016):

Another gem from director Taika Waititi, "Hunt for the Wilderpeople" is a heart-warming comedy-adventure set in the wilds of New Zealand. The film follows a rebellious foster child named Ricky Baker (Julian Dennison) and his cantankerous foster uncle (Sam Neill) as they embark on a hilarious and heartfelt journey through the New Zealand bush. With its quirky characters, stunning scenery, and irreverent humour, "Hunt for the Wilderpeople" is a delightful and uplifting film that is sure to leave you smiling.

 

5. "Super Troopers" (2001):

Directed by Jay Chandrasekhar, "Super Troopers" is a cult classic comedy that follows the misadventures of a group of eccentric state troopers in rural Vermont. Filled with absurd humor, outrageous pranks, and memorable one-liners, the film delights audiences with its offbeat charm and irreverent comedy. As the troopers engage in a series of ridiculous shenanigans while patrolling the highways, "Super Troopers" delivers non-stop laughs from start to finish.
