Trying to find a movie to watch with your parents that both of you can enjoy? We’ve put up a list of the top clean comedy movies of all time.
Whether or not you admit it, everyone enjoys a good comedy, especially when it’s shared with loved ones. In today’s world, movies are more likely to be labeled R or contain explicit sexual content. We can sympathize with the embarrassment of laughing at a non-veg joke in front of your family. If you are looking for some of the best clean comedy movies ever, this is the list you’ve been looking for!
1. Back to the Future (1985)
No matter how many times you see it, you’ll find something new to love each and every time. As a result of his scientific friend ‘Doc,’ Marty McFly (Michael J. Fox) accidentally travels back in time thirty years in the film Back to the Future.
Because of the non-existence of his mother and father, he made sure that they fell in love in the past. A wholesome film with a good story and a few chuckles thrown in.
2. Jojo Rabbit (2019)
An anti-Hitler fanatic who was generous enough to spare even a rabbit’s life is the subject of Jojo Rabbit’s narrative. A Jewish girl had also been secretly kept by her mother, and he learned about it afterwards (his mother was a peace-loving person who protested through leaflets and pamphlets of stopping war).
It’s not as spooky as you may assume. Imagining Hitler saying or doing things in situations like these is hysterically funny. It’s a gentle comedy that explores childhood during World War II and the challenges it entailed.
3. Hunt for the Wilderpeople (2016)
Speculations about the whereabouts of a father and his foster boy in New Zealand’s bush were grandiose and imaginative. They weren’t close to begin with, but becoming lost forced them to stick together, which led to a bizarre and amusing series of events.
Barry Crump, a New Zealand author, based the film on his children’s book, Wild Pigs and Watercress.
4. Airplane! (1980)
Ted Striker (Robert Hays), an ex-fighter pilot, has a dread of flying because of an incident that occurred during the war. He’d recently experienced a split, so he took a flight from Los Angeles to try to win her back (she was a flight attendant).
Ted was the only one who was able to safely land the plane after a series of occurrences. It is one of the best comedy-drama plots with the theme of conquering fear in a crisis sprinkled with humor all around.
5. Home Alone (1990)
This is one of the most well-known films we saw as children, ranking fifth on the list of the best clean comedies. Some kid networks still show it. Kevin (Macaulay Culkin) is a mischief-maker who gets into mischief when he’s left home alone.
Booby traps set by him stop two would-be burglars in their tracks. The would-be intruders are unable to outwit the kid and end up falling victim to his ruses.
6. Men in Black (1997)
Men in Black is a group that examines aliens on Earth. They were on the lookout for an agent and settled on the New York Police Department’s James Edwards (Will Smith).
It all begins one day when a spacecraft crashes on Earth, and they begin to explore the matter and the strange phenomena that follow it. An action-packed story with an undercurrent of humor and amusing aliens is what this film is all about.
7. Mrs. Doubtfire (1993)
Not only is this a hilarious film, but it also has a lot of heart. With his wife and three children, Robin Williams’ Daniel Hillard has a happy family life. However, he was only able to see his children once following the divorce. As a result, he devised a scheme to pretend to be their nanny while actually living with his wife and children.
A powerful message to the world’s viewers: love and caring will always win above any contractual obligations that could exist.
8. Holes (2003)
Actor Shia LaBeouf plays Stanley Yelnats, a man who is unfairly imprisoned for theft and forced to dig ditches with his other inmates by the warden of a correctional facility.
It seems to be limited to digging holes. No, I doubt it. This comedy-drama will keep you entertained the entire time.
9. Hook (1991)
A children’s adventure comedy that grew in popularity and appeal over time. A tale concerning the kidnapping of Peter Pan’s children by Captain Hook (Dustin Hoffman). When Captain Hook threatens his children, Peter Pan must resurrect his past as Peter Pan and defeat him.
It was a huge hit with the ’90s generation, and it’s a pleasant, lighthearted film (Hook’s delivery will make you laugh out loud).
10. Jumanji: The Next level (2019)
New Jumanji in 2019 is a follow-up to the original with an entirely new set of challenges (in the jungle). To get back to the real world, four high school kids are snagged and forced to play a video game as their chosen avatars.
Can they make it out of this simulation and into the real world unscathed? That’s a question for you. Adventures and humor are sprinkled throughout the film, so you won’t be bored at any point!
11. The Parent Trap (1998)
When Hallie and Annie (Lindsay Lohan) met at Summer camp, they discovered that their parents had divorced long ago, which is why they’ve grown up in different parts of the country.
12. Mr. Bean’s Holiday (2007)
There is a cult following for the venerable Mr. Bean (Rowan Atkinson) television series and movies. Despite winning a trip to Cannes, he had to break up the family of a father and son. He discovers love while making progress on the journey and helps the kid.
With Rowan’s usual hysterical performance — “funniest without saying a complete sentence” — the voyage is filled with laughter and amusement.
13. Honey, I Shrunk the Kids (1989)
Professor Wayne Szalinski (Rick Moranis) is working on a cutting-edge matter-shrinking machine that is nearly finished. For testing purposes, he uses it on his children and their friends.
As a result, everything is massive, and it’s impossible to get away from it. For those who enjoy a good old-fashioned laugh, this is the perfect movie for you to watch with your friends or family.
14. Finding ‘Ohana (2021)
In order to assist their grandfather, Brooklyn-based Pili is sent to Oahu. Pili and her brother discovered a cryptic treasure diary that piqued their interest in the remote area, despite her first skepticism.
At the beginning of the novel, she didn’t like their Hawaiian culture either, but as the story progressed, she found some wonderful friends and came to respect her own. Overall, it was a fun and exciting excursion across Hawaii’s natural treasures.
15. Yes Day (2021)
They come up with an original and thrilling plan to celebrate a day by saying yes to all of their wacky and wild ideas, as directed by Miguel Arteta. However, the family was unwittingly brought closer together than ever before.
As a humorous movie, it’s likely to lift your spirits and inspire you to arrange a “Yes Day” with your parents!
