Hello hello hello, how’s everybody doing? I don’t know what’s going on with the weather in the U.K but it really can’t make its mind up, in the space of 3 seconds it went from sunshine to snow… it’s completely mind-boggling. A lot of people are excited at the moment in Britain as non-essential shops, pubs and hairdressers have now re-opened again after being shut for quite some time and while it is great that life is slowly starting to get back to normal, I hope everyone is still being careful and adhering to the rules that are in place to keep each other safe.
As well as this month being National Humor Month, today is also International Moment Of Laughter, and I thought I would combine the two celebrations for todays post, and as comedy is my favorite movie genre, I decided to do 25 of the funniest comedies of the 2010s! Now this isn’t a complete list of comedy films (obviously) as there have been hundreds of hilarious films that have been made since 2010, and with great difficulty I narrowed it down to 25, but there were so many more that I wanted to include which means there may be a post in the near future featuring more films that you just can’t help but laugh at 🤣 but to be going on with here is a list of films I would definitely recommend that will be sure to make you laugh.
