We have no idea why the Oscars doesn’t have a category for comedies alone. Funny movies are not given the respect that they deserve. Not only do comedic films brighten people’s days and provide a humoristic perspective on life, they also provide a remedy to most of humanity’s ailments: laughter. And who doesn’t enjoy a good laugh? It’s as important as it is to have a good cry sometimes.
Not only is this list ranked but we’re also going to let you in on some rather unknown facts from behind the scenes. To give you a teaser, did you know that one of the funniest scenes from Dumb and Dumber was completely unscripted? The best part is if you see it again, you’ll see it on Harry’s face.
And how about this for a tidbit of trivia: Did you know that we laugh up to 30 times more when we are in the company of others than when we are by ourselves? When people say that laughter is contagious, they’re telling the truth! So grab a friend or two, watch your favorite comedy again, and enjoy it again with the new trivia truth that you’ll read about now.
