Redbox Best Comedy Movies List March 2018


Redbox Best Comedy Movies March 2018

redbox box

There are not very many titles on this list and here is why.  First off, really funny movies are few and far between, these days.  Hollywood has somehow gotten the idea that they have to make movies with a little bit of everything in it.  They spit out movies with a little bit of story, a little bit of action, some drama, and a sprinkle of comedy, and then they call it a comedy.  They are diluted comedies.  What is the problem with that?  Well, it is usually not very funny or entertaining.  The most recent example of this is Gringo (2018).

I think Redbox has picked up on this, because not only do they have plenty of terrible comedy movies to choose from, they continue to bring back past comedies that were very successful when they were out originally.  Notice how half of these movies came out before 2017?  Notice also how half of these movies have Will Ferrell in them?  Will Ferrell literally accounts for half of the best comedies inside of the box.

Below is my list of the best comedy movies that I have seen that are currently at Redbox.
