Movies that want you to have a good time?
August 4, 2021 4:01 PM   Subscribe

What the title says - I want to watch a movie that's really fun, but not necessarily a comfort movie.

The movie that really stands out to me as fitting this is Down With Love (2003). Not looking for movies that take themselves too seriously, although I still do care about quality. There has to be some element of humor, even if it's in the style of American Psycho. I think a lot of the movies that tend to fit this tend to be really tropey and/or parodies (Detention (2011), the Scream movies). Big fan of movies that are campy and over-the-top movies like Rocky Horror.

Even though I'm looking for comedies, any darker/serious movies that are intense and really good are still welcome (something like Senso?)

Other examples I've watched that somewhat fit, if it helps:
- Trainspotting
- Clueless
- Moonstruck
- But I'm A Cheerleader
- Saved!
- The Little Hours
- Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping

Oceans 11 - a classic caper movie

Hedwig and the Angry Inch
Weekend at Bernies
Midsommar - this is definitely a horror movie that has black humour. To be honest, I didn’t find it funny while I was watching it but the humour is there.

Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang (trailer) is a fun mystery comedy that knows it’s a fun mystery comedy, including snarky narration by the main character (played by Robert Downey Jr.) It’s a blast, and quite quotable!

the original Hairspray
Funny Bones - an overlooked gem of comedy, though a bit dark
Strictly Ballroom - very comforting, but also an enjoyable ride
Monty Python and the Holy Grail
Rumble in the Bronx
Sorry To Bother You
Bringing Up Baby
The Adventures of Baron Munchausen
Delicatessen
3 Idiots - EPIC Bollywood comedy about three school friends - dark moments, but ultimate resolution
Death Proof - grisly moments, and I think Tarantino is a jerk, but there's lots I still love about this movie

Apropos of metahawk's point, some genres might have a higher hit rate for what you're looking for, or could be a starting point to look for new material beyond these answers: caper/heist movies, buddy/screwball/action/dark comedies, martial arts movies, musicals/dance-competition movies, movies with a Quest for an Item....

A campy and over-the-top comedy? This year's Barb and Star Go to Vista Del Mar totally fits. It has some hilarious and surreal elements and is almost like a modern (and slightly more good-natured) Austin Powers, led by Gen-X Midwestern women.

Death Becomes Her (incredible dark comedy about vanity and hubris and frenemies and muuuurder)
The Fifth Element (Bruce Willis’ other best role)
Pacifim Rim (fighting monsters with the power of friendship and giant robots)
Fido (delightful zombie movie about a boy and his, uh… dog…)
Metropolis (yes the silent film from the 20s, it’s still outstanding and actually quite funny but also because a modern viewer can see the seams each moment of the work is that much more triumphantly impressive)
Raising Arizona (not that I actually wish the Coen brothers had stopped after this but it’s still the best)

I think Godspell might work if you can find it. It’s a retelling of the gospels with the apostles as a clown/theater troupe. Lots of humorous retelling of parables. Cool songs if you’re into that. Gilda Radner and Martin Short got their start in a Canadian production.

I highly recommend going into Palm Springs (currently on Hulu) knowing as little as possible, because that's a very fun ride. If you dislike it after twenty minutes you can ditch it.

Agree with Pacific Rim. It's not a good movie, but it's really good at being the movie that it is, which is basically kids playing with mecha toys, but with a Hollywood blockbuster budget.
Also strongly agree on Galaxy Quest.

Try the latter Fast and Furious movies (from 5-6 on, when they became heist movies about Family). My wife and I both love watching them and cackling at the ridiculousness. They know they're ridiculous, and they lean into being ridiculous.

One that falls into this realm for me - it might be difficult to find (the Winnipeg Film Group sells DVDs and Hoopla & Itunes in Canada have it available) but Crime Wave by John Paisz. Paisz is a contemporary of fellow Winnipegger Guy Maddin (who pops up in some of Paisz short films from the early 80s). Speaking of which, Maddin's Green Fog (sort a reconstructed version of Vertigo with parts of other TV shows and movies shot in San Francisco) or My Winnipeg (a goofy "docufantasia" about his hometown) would qualify. If you can handle low budget camp musicals Big Meat Eater is a winner.

In my opinion Michael Bay's best movie, Pain & Gain (2013), falls into the category you're describing! Besides starring The Rock and Mark Wahlberg, the cast is stacked with actors who are fun to watch (Tony Shaloub, Rebel Wilson, Ed Harris, Anthony Mackie...) Absurd parody of a crime movie.

One of my favorite feel good movies is "Max Dugan Returns". It's low key comedy, the hero is a public school teacher, and an underlying theme is philosophy. "Can you make money in philosophy?" "Oh yeah, if you've got the right one!"

My Big Fat Greek Wedding
Blast from the Past
Charlie Bartlett
Guardians of the Galaxy 1 & 2
RED & RED 2

And the Deadpool movies (for me) are so over the top that I really enjoy them. But I realize others may disagree.

"The Inside Man" wants you to have a good time the first time you watch it, but you can't watch it again (once you know the secret).

Oceans 11 - a classic caper movie

Agree, I recently saw Flypaper which is another wacky caper movie that is just a little odd. It's violent, but as long as it's not a dealbreaker it's got some great humor and an all-star cast.

I watched Zazie dans le Métro last week and it may hit the right notes for you. It's weird in a delightful way -- it's a kids' movie for adults (but note there are a couple of weirdly racist bits, but they're short and not really significant). I think some of the jokes are funnier in French (I only understand the most basic French) but for me, that contributed to the surreal feel of the whole thing.

Maybe slightly more low-key than what you're going for, but I just watched Clockwatchers and it's definitely meant to be fun.

Magic Mike XXL. (It has to be the second Magic Mike movie, not the first). I know a film about strippers doesn’t sound like a feel good movie but I promise, it really is. It’s not dark, or sleazy, it’s just fun and has no major drama.

The Triplets of Belleville (2003) Animated

I saw it based on the first sentence of the review by Roger Ebert: "The Triplets of Belleville" will have you walking out of the theater with a goofy damn grin on your face, wondering what just happened to you." He also wrote: "After a certain point it isn't the surprises that surprise us -- it's the surprises about the surprises."

Essentially a silent film, with maybe a dozen lines of dialog in French. The story is told so well visually that the dialog isn't needed.

Also, kinda a sideways one, but Playtime from Jacques Tati. Beautifully shot and very silly in a way that reminds me of Down With Love even though they are not alike on the surface.
