There may be no one else than director Ben Stiller who can actually make a comedy out of a war movie. However if you take a look at the cast of the movie with the likes of Tom Cruise, Ben Stiller, Brandon T Jackson and Robert Downey Jr. Acting in it, it’s not surprising that this is one of the best comedies on Netflix.

7.     Blazing saddles

Why some people may have found Mel Brook’s Blazing Saddles rather offensive when it was first released, it’s still one of the funniest movies around. The movie has Cleavon Little playing the town’s first black sheriff.

It’s the fact that the town is full of racists who would rather have him dead, than have him protect them that makes the movie comical with all their actions and words. Gene Wilder playing an alcoholic gunslinger is a cherry to the movie.

9.     The Truman Show

No funny movie list can be complete without a movie with the all-time favorite, Jim Carrey! You have Jim Carrey playing the role of a young man, Truman Burbank, who subconsciously ends up spending his whole life in front of the camera.
