Have these characters’ relationships taught you something? Have you idealized any certain part of the relationship that you see?
Not sure if this is allowed but I thought the plant community would enjoy this delete if so.
I recently finished a short film about a plant enthusiast who discovers her Boston Fern is dying and takes drastic measures to hide the shame. Enjoy this comedy.

Hi fellow screenwriters!! I'm making my short film TANGLED TINSEL public and would love for you guys to watch it. It screened at a few festivals last year, but as you know, it was all online, so unfortunately, I didn't have many networking opportunities. If you like it, please share! The more eyes on it, the better.
Synopsis: Anti-hero and southern matriarch Millicent wants nothing more than to have the perfect Christmas dinner...if only her family would cooperate. Runtime: 8:16
I'm looking for something hilarious that isn't that deep in a way that detracts from the comedy. As an example The Favourite would not qualify, I'm surprised that's on other lists.
Special exceptions for absolutely timeless films outside of 00's such as Airplane, I reckon I could show airplane to my teens no matter the decade in the future and it will be a hit, so long as that comedy tickles them.
Films like Superbad, Date night, Anchorman, Airplane, Tropic Thunder
Went and saw my first horror movie onscreen in months since Covid started, and it was a crazy trip. It was co-written and directed by Christopher Landon, who did Happy Death Day and its sequel. The film opens up with some teens talking about the local lore behind a serial killer's disappearance, and next thing you know, you-know-who shows up creeping around the place. It's crazy as hell, of course. Next day the whole town hears about it. Millie (Newton) is a shy girl who's not the popular one at her high school, and is secretly crushing on a guy in her shop class. Her mother has issues with alcohol, and her sister, a local cop is disgusted by it.
One night Millie winds up the last person to leave school after a game, and while waiting for a ride, she gets stalked by the Blissfield Butcher (Vaughn, who's both scary and hilarious) who just happens to be roaming the football field. She takes off running like hell and hides, but gets caught and stabbed by the creep. It just so happens that somehow this knife has magical properties, which causes them to switch personalities, and run off in each other's bodies---all the time having to convince everyone around them that each one of them is not who they seem to be. The craziness ratches up once Millie convinces her friends of her predicament, and then they find out that they're only got 24 hours to switch Millie back to her original body, or the change will be permament. Unfortunately, trying to do that turns out to be way harder---and even crazier--than they think!
There are few movies that I can think of and just not pick a single fault with. True Lies is one of those movies, it feels huge and small at the same time, the characters are loveable without being so overly silly, Arnie gives what I believe to be his best performance by a mile!
The list of positives for this film just flow off the tongue, even Tom Arnold is bareable in the movie! The action set pieces are incredible, the rescue of Jamie Lee Curtis and the Horse chase being personal favourites.
The film spins so many plates and none of them ever fall down, I know James Cameron is a bit of a love/hate director but this is him at his peak imo, it’s so tonally different from his other works yet it feels just as epic. When I think of action comedies nothing even comes close to True Lies.
Edit - This little post I made on the loo late last night gained me my first ever silver! Thank you, you kind soul!
I barely remember much more other than it scaring the poop out of my 5 y/o ass. The man used tools to get the ghosts to communicate with him (like EVP machines and such) and when he starts to see the ghosts, I remember them being like a blue color 90’s movie effect type look. One had long hair and looked kind of like the crypt keeper guy. I think there were 3 ghosts he connected with. They could talk to each other. The main character was a young, attractive male who I thought was Michael J. Fox for all these years but after scouring his IMDB page, I found no trace of this film. So main guy is like a MJF twin basically. It was almost like he “befriended” or allied with the ghosts to help figure out what was going on in the job he was called to help with? I wish I could remember more. This has been driving me nuts for years ! Thank you in advance!
When I was younger I watched a stranger old Uk comedy film that I can’t for the life of me remember the name of. From my jaded memory of it it is about a middle aged couple going on a camping trip/holiday. The wife never seemed to interested from the husband antics. I believe the name of the film might be the names of the couple but am not 100%
Any help would be greatly appreciated it’s really bugging me 😭😊
I like comedy movies, especially British humour, e.g. Hot Fuzz (2007), and black comedy, e.g. In the Loop (2009). Long story short, I planned to watch 25 movies by women (because my watch list felt biased), but I need two women-directed comedy films to complete the list.
Unfortunately, the movies articles suggest—e.g. In a World... (2013) and Toni Erdmann (2016)—were too "new-agey" for me; however, I quite liked Booksmart (2019). I prefer spontaneous or intelligent humour, but not much in between.
That said, what are two comedy films, preferably in the black/dark comedy, British humour, and/or farce genres, directed by women?
It's like the masses have a sublimated sadistic impulse that used to be satisfied by derisive things like Tropic Thunder, but now is fed by watching movie stars be stalked and killed by giant insectoid creatures.
I just released a feature film I shot in the Tulsa area on YouTube. It was shot in 2019 and spent the last year in the film festival circuit where it picked up several nominations and awards. Instead of placing it behind a paywall, I wanted to share it for free. It is a low-budget, independent film and a lot of hard work went into it from a lot of people. Would love to hear all of your thoughts!
I like office space, reservoir dogs, taxi driver.
what else should i check?
Looking for some suggestions of comedy films, things that are obscure / forgotten treasures(this could just be ones that are not on netflix/prime but I can buy through amazon still).
I have a clear memory of a comedy where the main character’s brother wore an astronaut suit the majority of the film. In the final act of the film, the main character leaves his house to “go do whatever his goal was” and the brother follows him to the lawn and puts a thumbs up and says “good luck!”. The main character can’t understand what his brother says cause of the astronaut helmet, and the brother takes off the helmet for the first time (probably in years) and says “I said, good luck!”. It’s a dumb feel good moment for the dysfunctional brothers and the audience.
I have tried searching for this movie multiple times over the years. I think it played on Comedy Central mostly in the early 2000s. My brother and I quote the “good luck” line to each other all the time and we both aren’t sure if this movie even exists.
Also, this is an awesome group, hope to provide answers on other’s posts. Thanks for the help!
Do you know some good comedy films on Netflix? I’m tired of lame comedy films that always have dirty, not funny jokes. Any recommendations would be helpful. Thanks! :)
