Netflix has a wide variety of quality late-night comedies like those that will satisfy that fix!
Despite boasting ample amounts of the vulgarity and excessiveness that cause many of the films in this genre to fail, Superbad has managed to not only defy expectations but also cement itself as one of the funniest films to come out of the 21st century. Jonah Hill and Michael Cera star in this awkward comedy about two high school best friends who are hell-bent on partying and losing their virginities before graduation. But as every teen knows, there is nothing simple about that seemingly-simple mission. With hilarious dialogue, great chemistry and an evergreen story, Superbad is a classic comedy that earned its street cred thanks to its authentic and sincere take on friendship and high school awkwardness.
My Best Friend’s Wedding

There’s no rule that says you can only watch National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation at Christmastime, and now that the comedy classic is on Netflix, you can watch it whenever you want. Released in 1989, the film is the third in the Vacation franchise following the iconic original and subpar first sequel European Vacation. This one, obviously, takes place at Christmas and finds the Griswolds hosting extended family at their house for the holidays. Clark (Chevy Chase) is overly stressed as he awaits a hopeful bonus from his company all while trying to keep his family from burning his house down. There are those who say Christmas Vacation is too mean-spirited to be funny, to which I say you must have a very different kind of family. For those of us how can relate to Christmas Vacation, we relate hard. – Adam Chitwood.

Dolemite is My Name

In 2019, comedy legend Eddie Murphey made his dramatic return to the screen in the award-winning film, Dolemite is My Name. This biographical comedy tells the true story of Rudy Ray Moore (Murphy): a filmmaker who, after a litany of showbiz flops, rebooted his career to catastrophic heights through his assumed alter-ego, an outlandish street pimp named Dolemite. Supported by a great screenplay from writers Scott Alexander and Larry Karaszewski and a fantastic cast including Keegan-Michael Key, Da’Vine Joy Randolph (Empire) and more, Dolemite is My Name is perhaps one of the best performances Murphy has given in his whole career— and absolutely demands and deserves your undivided attention.
Can’t Hardly Wait

If you like your comedy with a hefty dose of nostalgia, the 1998 film Can’t Hardly Wait will do the trick. This is your standard 90s teen comedy, but there’s a certain charm to it that remains kinda timeless. Set on graduation day at a high school, it follows the stories of various teens tying up loose ends at a party before they head off to college. Ethan Embry is The Shy Guy who just wants to profess his love to his crush (Jennifer Love Hewitt), former childhood BFFs Lauren Ambrose and Seth Green get locked in a bathroom together and are no longer able to continue acting like strangers, and Charlie Korsmo gets absolutely wasted and sings “Paradise City.” And the soundtrack? Iconic. – Adam Chitwood
50 First Dates
As far as Adam Sandler romcoms go, 50 First Dates is pretty great. Released in 2004, the film takes place in Hawaii and follows a veterinarian (Sandler) who crosses paths with a lovely young woman (Drew Barrymore) and has a pleasant day. But when he goes to follow up and ask her on a date the next day, she doesn’t remember who he is. As it turns out, she suffers from short-term memory loss and her memory resets every day. So he spends the rest of the film winning her over day after day to try and strike up a relationship. It’s honestly extremely sweet, and Barrymore and Sandler have great chemistry. – Adam Chitwood
As Good As It Gets
Believe it or not, this is the last movie to win both the Oscar for Best Actor (Jack Nicholson) and Best Actress (Helen Hunt). James L. Brooks’ romantic comedy is a perfect example of a movie that caught its cast at just the right moment, getting one of the last Nicholson performances that could be called charming and supporting it with great work from Hunt and Greg Kinnear. Some of it is a bit dated, but it catches just enough lightning in a bottle in terms of casting to justify another look.
