40 Best Comedy Movies On Hulu [July 2021]

Hulu is one of the oldest streaming services out there — many of us remember when it was a free site, similar to Crackle or Tubi now. Now it's one of the biggest power players in streaming, with a lot of content ... perhaps even too much to sift through easily.

We've selected 40 of the best, or at least most interesting, comedy movies streaming on Hulu. It's worth remembering that comedy is subjective so the Rotten Tomatoes score may not correlate to your tastes. That's fine. We're positive that you'll find at least a few movies suited to your preferred comedy outlook.

Updated on July 21, 2021: As Hulu rotates its selection, we'll keep this list updated to reflect the changes in its streaming catalog. Be sure to check back each month for films that will leave you howling with laughter, as we'll be keeping this list current with the latest and greatest comedy films to hit the site.

John Bronco

"John Bronco" is a mockumentary about the rise and fall of the titular John Bronco (Walton Goggins), pitchman for the Ford Bronco. It follows John's journey, starting from driving the prototype Bronco at the 1966 Baja 500, to his heights as one of the biggest celebrities on Earth, all the way to his sudden decline and disappearance. His skills and influence as a pitchman are undeniable, his personal life compelling, and his accomplishments — including a hit single — unimaginable in today's world. Also interviewed are Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, John Moschitta Jr. (the Micro Machines Guy), and Bo Derek as versions of themselves.

- Starring: Walton Goggins, Tim Meadows, Dennis Quaid

- Director: Jake Szymanski

- Year: 2020

- Runtime: 37 mins

- Rating: N/A

- Rotten Tomatoes score: 80%

Bill & Ted Face the Music

The long-awaited threequel of the "Bill & Ted" series, "Bill & Ted Face the Music" sees Bill (Alex Winter) and Ted (Keanu Reeves) as middle-aged dads — albeit ones with the same slacker Gen X sensibilities. After failing to write a song prophesied to save the world, time and space — as well as their families' lives — begin to unravel. Things get more dire after the arrival of Kelly, the daughter of former time-traveling companion Rufus, who brings them on a brand new adventure. "Bill & Ted Face the Music" combines nostalgia with modern sensibilities for something new and enjoyable for all the "Bill & Ted" fans who waited decades for this.

- Starring: Keanu Reeves, Alex Winter, Kristen Schaal

- Director: Dean Parisot

- Year: 2020

- Runtime: 91 mins

- Rating: PG-13

- Rotten Tomatoes score: 82%

The Nice Guys

Written and directed by the acclaimed Shane Black, "The Nice Guys" is a buddy comedy with neo-noir trappings. It tells the stories of alcoholic single father Holland March (Ryan Gosling), a private investigator, and Jackson Healy (Russell Crowe), a rough-and-tumble enforcer. The two, after some initial misgivings, team up to investigate the death of a porn star and the disappearance of a little girl. Gosling and Crowe have undeniable chemistry, but the movie's MVP is Angourie Rice as March's clever-yet-precocious daughter Holly. Great dialogue, great chemistry, and a few great cameos make this movie a must watch.

- Starring: Russell Crowe, Ryan Gosling, Angourie Rice

- Director: Shane Black

- Year: 2016

- Runtime: 116 mins

- Rating: R

- Rotten Tomatoes score: 91%

Jennifer's Body

A horror comedy written by Diablo Cody, "Jennifer's Body" tells the story of the two high school friends and their normal high school problems — boys, social pressure, demonic possession. Jennifer (Megan Fox), an arrogant cheerleader, is possessed by a demon and becomes a succubus: she now has a need for blood and begins killing her male classmates. It's up to her bookish best friend Needy (Amanda Seyfried) to stop her. "Jennifer's Body" was critically maligned when it came out, seen as another exploitation of Fox's sex appeal. In a post-#MeToo world, however, the movie has seen both a popular and critical reevaluation — and is now enough of a cult classic that it got referenced in pop megastar Olivia Rodrigo's video for "good 4 u."

- Starring: Megan Fox, Amanda Seyfried, J.K. Simmons

- Director: Karyn Kusama

- Year: 2009

- Runtime: 102 mins

- Rating: R

- Rotten Tomatoes score: 45%

Guess Who

"Guess Who" is a race-swapped remake of "Guess Who's Coming to Dinner." Instead of a white woman bringing her Black boyfriend home, here we have a Black girlfriend bringing home Ashton Kutcher — the ur-white man. It also features Zoe Saldana, four years before her mainstream breakthrough in "Star Trek" and "Avatar." The story itself is pretty straightforward: Theresa (Saldana) takes her boyfriend Simon (Kutcher) home to meet her family, many of whom — especially her father Percy (Bernie Mac) — have reservations. Even though it wasn't exactly acclaimed, it's a pleasant watch — and the cast's easy chemistry makes it worthwhile.

- Starring: Ashton Kutcher, Zoe Saldana, Bernie Mac

- Director: Kevin Rodney Sullivan

- Year: 2005

- Runtime: 105 mins

- Rating: PG-13

- Rotten Tomatoes score: 42%

Napoleon Dynamite

The cult classic "Napoleon Dynamite" is now 100% streamable on Hulu, for those looking for perhaps the dozenth watch. Trying to describe the plot to those unfamiliar is like trying to grab a fistful of a waterfall, but it's about the titular strange high schooler (Jon Heder) and his just-as-strange friends, family, and classmates. Just know that millennials were quoting it for years, something of a proto-meme factory from the dying days of dial-up. For newcomers: at the very least, stick through the absurdism and stay until the end for the dance scene.

- Starring: Jon Heder, Jon Gries, Aaron Ruell

- Director: Jared Hess

- Year: 2004

- Runtime: 95 minutes

- Rating: PG

- Rotten Tomatoes score: 72%

Sorry to Bother You

The first film by Boots Riley, a longtime musician and an outspoken leftist, "Sorry to Bother You" is an absurdist comedy about racism, capitalism, and the need for better working conditions. Cash (LaKeith Stanfield), a Black man in need of a job, joins a call center. After underwhelming returns, a veteran of the job teaches him the secret: use his "white voice," because people are more receptive to it. Meanwhile, the workplace is unionizing — all while Cash is rising through management and learning more about the company. About two thirds of the way through the movie is a twist so big that we guarantee you won't predict it. "Sorry to Bother You" also features a solid supporting cast, including Danny Glover, Terry Crews, and the voice of David Cross. Do yourself a favor and don't look up anything about the film, lest it be spoiled — just click over to Hulu and watch one of the most intriguing comedies of the past decade.

- Starring: LaKeith Stanfield, Tessa Thompson, Omari Hardwick

- Director: Boots Riley

- Year: 2018

Weekend At Bernie's

Richard (Jonathan Silverman) and Larry (Andrew McCarthy) get invited to a weekend getaway at a beach house owned by their boss Bernie (Terry Kiser). What they don't know is that Bernie wants to kill them. What Bernie didn't know is that things would go wrong and he's the one who'd end up dead. Richard and Larry are horrified to find the corpse of their boss ... but they're not gonna let that get in the way of their vacation. Nothing some pulleys and rolling chairs can't fix in this comedy classic.

- Starring: Andrew McCarthy, Jonathan Silverman, Terry Kiser

- Director: Ted Kotcheff

- Year: 1989

- Runtime: 1h 37m

- Rating: PG-13

- Rotten Tomatoes score: 54%

Florence Foster Jenkins

"Florence Foster Jenkins" is a biopic about the woman of the same name, starring Meryl Streep in yet another Oscar-nominated turn. Florence was a socialite who was 100% convinced she was a world-class opera singer, despite the fact that she sounded like an unoiled shopping cart wheel at best. The movie focuses in particular on the buildup to Florence's historic Carnegie Hall performance, arranged by her partner St. Clair Bayfield (Hugh Grant).

- Starring: Meryl Streep, Hugh Grant, Simon Helberg

- Director: Stephen Frears

- Year: 2016

- Runtime: 1h 50m

- Rating: PG-13

- Rotten Tomatoes score: 87%

Date Night

Phil (Steve Carrell) and Claire (Tina Fey) are a bored suburban married couple. In an attempt to add some excitement to their weekly date night, they head to New York city and a fancy new restaurant. When they can't get a seat, they steal the reservation of a couple that no-showed — which kicks off a night of mistaken identity, gangsters, cops, and J.B. Smoove as a taxi driver. The movie boasts a strong supporting cast, including Common, Taraji P. Henson, Kristin Wiig, Mark Ruffalo, Bill Burr, and Mila Kunis.

- Starring: Tina Fey, Steve Carell, Mark Wahlberg

- Director: Shawn Levy

- Year: 2010

Space Jam

Everybody get up it's time to slam now

We got a real jam goin' down

Welcome to the Space Jam

Here's your chance, do your dance

At the Space Jam, all right

"Space Jam" is the 100% legitimate true story of Michael Jordan's hiatus from basketball. In the world of Looney Toons, an alien theme park owner tries to take over Earth — but Bugs and co. challenge him to a game of basketball with the planet on the line. When their foes steal the essence of various NBA stars, Jordan gets sucked into the world of Looney Toons to help them win their all-important basketball game.

- Starring: Michael Jordan, Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck

- Director: Joe Pytka

- Year: 1996

- Runtime: 1h 27m

- Rating: PG

- Rotten Tomatoes score: 44%

Hunt for the Wilderpeople

Before going mainstream with "Thor: Ragnarok," Taiki Waititi spent about a decade making smaller films in his native New Zealand. The last of these before joining the MCU was "Hunt for the Wilderpeople," a dramedy about a boy named Ricky (Julian Dennison) who disappears into the New Zealand bush with his dog Tupac after his foster aunt dies. His foster uncle Hector (Sam Neill) goes after him, and a national manhunt ensues. "Hunt for the Wilderpeople" is full of the dry humor and easy chemistry that made Waititi one of the most in-demand directors worldwide.

- Starring: Sam Neill, Julian Dennison, Rima Te Wiata

- Director: Taika Waititi

- Year: 2016

- Runtime: 1h 41m

- Rating: PG-13

- Rotten Tomatoes score: 97%

The Ladies Man

Based on the "Saturday Night Live" sketch of the same name, "The Ladies Man" tells the story of Leon Phelps (Tim Meadows) — the titular Ladies Man, a relationship and sex expert radio host. After he and his producer Julie (Karyn Parsons) get kicked off the air, Leon gets a letter from a former paramour who offers to take care of him ... but she doesn't sign her real name. It's up to Leon to find out who she is before things get way, way worse for him. The movie was panned upon first release, but picked up a second life as a cable TV fixture.

- Starring: Tim Meadows, Karyn Parsons, Billy Dee Williams

- Director: Reginald Hudlin

- Year: 2000

- Runtime: 1h 24m

- Rating: R

- Rotten Tomatoes score: 11%

Super Troopers

"Super Troopers" is a prime example of a movie that was made for the public, not for critics. A product of the Broken Lizard comedy troupe, it's largely an excuse for five friends to be as goofy as possible for the duration of a feature length movie. The story of five Vermont State Troopers who spend more time causing trouble than solving crime, the movie was popular enough to get a sequel almost two decades later.

- Starring: Jay Chandrasekhar, Kevin Heffernan, Steve Lemme

- Director: Jay Chandrasekhar

- Year: 2001

- Runtime: 1h 43m

- Rating: R

- Rotten Tomatoes score: 35%

The Sandlot

Even if you've never seen "The Sandlot," more than a few points have probably entered your consciousness via cultural osmosis: The phrase "you're killing me, Smalls" or the scene where someone pretends to be unconscious so his lifeguard crush can perform mouth-to-mouth resuscitation on him. For those who haven't seen it, "The Sandlot" was one of the best coming-of-age misfit sports movies of the '90s — and that decade spat out several. It follows Scottie Smalls (Tom Guiry), the new boy in the neighborhood, and the adventures he has with his new baseball friends.

- Starring: Tom Guiry, Mike Vitar, Patrick Renna

- Director: David M. Evans

- Year: 1993

- Runtime: 1h 41m

- Rating: PG

- Rotten Tomatoes score: 63%

Booksmart

Amy (Kaitlyn Dever) and Molly (Beanie Feldstein) are two brilliant, hardworking high school girls who spent all their time focusing on academics. On the verge of graduation, however, they realize they likely missed out on some formative experiences and decide to pack all the fun they missed into one night. "Booksmart" features a solid supporting cast — Jessica Williams, Jason Sudekis, Lisa Kudrow, and Will Forte — but Dever and Feldstein absolutely shine all on their own in this acclaimed comedy-of-age comedy.

- Starring: Kaitlyn Dever, Beanie Feldstein, Jessica Williams

- Director: Olivia Wilde

- Year: 2019

- Runtime: 1h 42m

- Rating: R

- Rotten Tomatoes score: 96%

Scary Movie 4

"Scary Movie 4" is another movie that, regardless of its quality, many of us have fond memories of either seeing in repeat on Comedy Central or at least quoting it incessantly in the pre-YouTube days. Like every installment of the "Scary Movie" franchise, there's a loose plot, but not one worth describing in any detail. The main attraction, as always, are the parodies of then-recent movies — here you'll find nods to "Signs," the "Saw" series, "Million Dollar Baby," and "The Village" — and the parade of cameo appearances.

- Starring: Anna Faris, Regina Hall, Charlie Sheen

- Director: David Zucker

- Year: 2006

- Runtime: 1h 23m

- Rating: PG-13

- Rotten Tomatoes score: 35%

The Princess Bride

What's left to say about "The Princess Bride" that hasn't already been said? The fairy tale about the Dread Pirate Roberts (Cary Elwes) and his quest to find his true lover Buttercup (Robin Wright) has endured for years, a favorite of at least two or three generations. It's just the right combination of great lead performances, a great script, great set design, and one of the best supporting casts ever assembled on celluloid.

- Starring: Cary Elwes, Robin Wright, Mandy Patinkin

- Director: Rob Reiner

- Year: 1987

- Runtime: 1h 38m

- Rating: PG

- Rotten Tomatoes score: 97%

Mystic Pizza

"Mystic Pizza" follows three teenage girls — two sisters and one of their best friends — working as waitresses at the titular pizza restaurant in Mystic, Connecticut. (No, the pizza is not magic, but it's high quality becomes a plot point later on.) In addition to Julia Roberts, "Mystic Pizza" also features Vincent D'Onofrio and Matt Damon in his film debut. The movie has enough of an enduring fanbase that it's been adapted into a musical, a fact made all the funnier since "30 Rock" had a "Mystic Pizza" musical bit in 2007.

- Starring: Julia Roberts, Annabeth Gish, Lili Taylor

- Director: Donald Petrie

- Year: 1988

- Runtime: 1h 42m

- Rating: R

- Rotten Tomatoes score: 75%

Scrooged

"Scrooged" isn't just for the holiday season — you can watch it right now on Hulu, if you're in the Christmas mood. "Scrooged" is a meta modern (well, 1988-level-modern) retelling of "A Christmas Carol." Bill Murray plays Frank Cross, a stingy and selfish TV executive trying to present a live production of "A Christmas Carol." But before he can, he's visited by an old business partner and three spirits who show him the dangers of his self-centered ways.

- Starring: Bill Murray, Karen Allen, John Forsythe

- Director: Richard Donner

- Year: 1988

- Runtime: 1h 41m

- Rating: PG-13

- Rotten Tomatoes score: 71%

Caddyshack

Not many will dispute the comedy bona fides of "Caddyshack," often listed as one of the best sports movies ever made despite being a comedy. Co-written and directed by Harold Ramis, this classic stars Chevy Chase, Bill Murray, and Rodney Dangerfield at arguably the peaks of their careers (not to mention That Gopher). Shenanigans at a prestige golf club plus a golf tournament that goes off the rails and the antics of a determined subterranean rodent make for one of the most legendary comedies of the '80s.

- Starring: Chevy Chase, Bill Murray, Rodney Dangerfield

- Director(s): Harold Ramis

- Year: 1980

- Runtime: 1h 38m

- Rating: R

- Rotten Tomatoes score: 73%

Beetlejuice

Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice, BEETLEJUICE! Adam (Alec Baldwin) and Barbera (Geena Davis) are your average suburban dead couple who haunt a house. Nothing unusual there — at least until the remarkably usual event of "a living couple moves into their house" happens. With no other options, they hire the mischievous and malicious Beetlejuice (Michael Keaton) to help them scare out the new guys. "Beetlejuice" went on to inspire both a cartoon and a Broadway play.

- Starring: Alec Baldwin, Geena Davis, Michael Keaton

- Director(s): Tim Burton

- Year: 1988

- Runtime: 1h 32m

- Rating: PG

- Rotten Tomatoes score: 85%

Shrek

"Shrek" has been a franchise, a meme, and a heavily memed franchise for so long that it's easy to forget how special the first one was upon release. The fast-paced writing and the updated fairy tales were new concepts at the time and earned rapturous acclaim. Most of us know the story by now — swamp ogre Shrek finds out fairy tale creatures are getting dumped in his swamp, and he makes a deal with Lord Farquaad to rescue a princess in order to get his peace and quiet back. But it's worth watching again, without the cynicism we get from spending too much time online. If it helps, just remember that Lord Farquaad is almost certainly a stand-in for Michael Eisner.

- Starring: Mike Myers, Eddie Murphy, Cameron Diaz

- Director(s): Andrew Adamson, Vicky Jenson

- Year: 2001

- Runtime: 1h 30m

- Rating: PG

- Rotten Tomatoes score: 88%

Shrek 2

Speaking of "Shrek," "Shrek 2" also holds up pretty well. Now following the married couple of Shrek and an ogrefied Fiona, the movie sees the two traveling to meet Fiona's parents ... only to find out that they aren't too pleased about the whole "my daughter married an ogre and also is now an ogre" situation. "Shrek 2" also included John Cleese and Julie Andrews as the King and Queen, Fiona's parents — and that's without even getting into Jennifer Saunders as the Fairy Godmother or Antonio Banderas as Puss in Boots.

- Starring: Mike Myers, Eddie Murphy, Cameron Diaz

- Director(s): Andrew Adamson, Vicky Jenson, Conrad Vernon

- Year: 2001

- Runtime: 1h 33m

- Rating: PG

- Rotten Tomatoes score: 89%

50/50

"50/50" was inspired by a real-life cancer scare faced by screenwriter Will Reiser. The movie itself is fictionalized rather than a biopic, and tells the story of Adam (Joseph Gordon-Levitt), a man who is the picture of good health until his diagnosis. His family and friends are devastated, though he remains in good spirits. Despite the heavy subject matter, "50/50" is still a comedy at heart — albeit one about making the best of a bad situation.

- Starring: Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Seth Rogen, Anna Kendrick

- Director(s): Jonathan Levine

- Year: 2011

- Runtime: 1h 39m

- Rating: R

- Rotten Tomatoes score: 93%

Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs

Based on the classic children's book of the same name, "Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs" follows Flint (Bill Hader), a scientist who invents a mechanism to turn water into food. When it gets into the atmosphere, the Mayor (Bruce Campbell) tries to cover it up as a public good ... until it's too late. The film's dynamite voice cast includes Neil Patrick Harris, Will Forte, James Caan, Andy Samberg, and — since they need a weatherman — Al Roker. It was an early showing for Lord and Miller, who have since specialized in making masterpieces out of the unfilmable — see also "The Lego Movie" and "Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse."

- Starring: Anna Faris, Bill Hader, Bruce Campbell

- Director(s): Phil Lord and Chris Miller

- Year: 2009

- Runtime: 1h 30m

- Rating: PG

- Rotten Tomatoes score: 86%

The Full Monty

After the steel mills in South Yorkshire shut down, the displaced employees are in need of money — badly — so a group of them band together and start a male striptease act. What makes them sure it'll work? They're willing to go completely nude — the "Full Monty," as it were. Even though the movie is full of ribald jokes, it also tackles many social issues — ranging from fatherhood to masculinity to depression — all without ever lacking humor.

- Starring: Robert Carlyle, Tom Wilkinson, Mark Addy

- Director(s): Peter Cattaneo

- Year: 1997

- Runtime: 1h 31m

- Rating: R

- Rotten Tomatoes score: 96%

Galaxy Quest

Once upon a time, "Galaxy Quest" was a popular sci-fi show — one that maintained a devoted fanbase. Some of those fans attend cons and pore over minutiae. Among those fans are the Thermians, an actual alien race that believe all the escapades on the show were historical fact. They come to the cast, seeking help in taking on their own oppressors. "Galaxy Quest" — that is, the movie, not the fictional show — is especially beloved by "Star Trek" fans, but is broadly entertaining enough that even non sci-fi fans will find something to like.

- Starring: Tim Allen, Sigourney Weaver, Alan Rickman

- Director(s): Dean Parisot

- Year: 1997

- Runtime: 1h 44m

- Rating: PG

- Rotten Tomatoes score: 90%

Palm Springs

Nyles (Andy Samberg) and Sarah (Cristin Milioti) are guests at a wedding in Palm Springs. The two start hitting it off before something goes horribly wrong, and Sarah finds herself reliving the exact same day over again. Turns out Nyles was already stuck in this time loop, and the two try to embrace the chaos while romance blooms between them. "Palm Springs" is a Hulu exclusive, meaning this sci-fi romcom is something American viewers won't find on any other streamer.

- Starring: Andy Samberg, Cristin Milioti, J.K. Simmons

- Director(s): Max Barbakow

- Year: 2020

- Runtime: 1h 30m

- Rating: R

- Rotten Tomatoes score: 95%

The Mask

"Somebody stop me!" Stanley Ipkiss (Jim Carrey), a pathetic bank teller, comes into the possession of a possessed mask — one that turns him into a confident living cartoon playboy. His antics earn him the attention of a beautiful nightclub performer (Cameron Diaz) as well as local gangsters. Based on the comic series of the same name, "The Mask" was a smashing success and a cultural sensation. Just don't ask about the sequel.

- Starring: Jim Carrey, Cameron Diaz, Peter Riegert

- Director(s): Max Barbakow

- Year: 1994

- Runtime: 1h 41m

- Rating: PG-13

- Rotten Tomatoes score: 79%

Dear White People

"Dear White People" is about the lives of several Black students at an elite — and primarily white — university. Life at the university becomes chaotic after a blackface-themed party held by influential white students. A strong social satire, "Dear White People" also went on to inspire the acclaimed Netflix series of the same name.

Fifteen years after graduating, he returns to his hometown ... only to find out that the girl he's had feelings for all these years is now in a relationship with the guy he remembered as the class weirdo. Undeterred, Billy plans to get his girl — by proving her boyfriend is a murderer. The movie also stars Rachel Bloom of "Crazy Ex-Girlfriend" fame and was co-written and directed by her husband, veteran comedy writer Dan Gregor.

General Aladeen (Sacha Baron Cohen) has ruled the country of Wadiya with an iron first for almost his entire life. His brutal rule has led to many assassination attempts. When Aladeen visits New York to address the UN about his country's nuclear weapons program, his trip falls apart — and he's soon facing a coup, protestors, and any number of other issues he's been sheltered from.

Mystery Science Theater 3000: The Movie

A feature-length version of the cult TV show of the same name, "Mystery Science Theater 3000: The Movie" is a strange beast. It's shorter than most episodes of the show, but with higher production values. The movie they riff — "This Island Earth" — is of much higher quality than their standard B-movie fare, but they're also quiet for an extended period so the audience can hear the exposition. It in many ways follows the standard format of the show, but also shows other parts of the Satellite of Love for the first and only time. It's a bit of a controversial entry among fans, and especially the cast and crew, but it's still a solid flick and a decent entry point for MST3K newbies.

- Starring: Michael J. Nelson, Trace Beaulieu, Kevin Murphy

After a heart attack, Harry is prescribed bedrest and stays with Erica. Following some discomfort, the two find themselves falling for each other — even if she may be a little too good for him.

Brüno

Brüno (Sacha Baron Cohen, reprising his role from "Da Ali G Show") is a gay Austrian fashionista. After publicly embarrassing himself, he loses almost everything and goes to America in search of newfound fame. While not quite as groundbreaking as "Borat," "Brüno" remains another solid example of how nobody does what Sacha Baron Cohen does. A particular high point is Brüno's interview with Ron Paul, who he mistakes for RuPaul.

- Starring: Sacha Baron Cohen, Gustaf Hammarsten, Clifford Bañagale

When she gets an email from her high school sweetheart Buddy (Patrick Wilson) about his newborn daughter, she decides to head to her hometown and win him back. Things obviously go awry — including a newfound bond with Matt (Patton Oswalt), a barely remembered former classmate with similar arrested development issues. "Young Adult" was written by Diablo Cody, best known for "Juno."

Steven's con games eventually put him in prison, where he meets and falls in love with fellow inmate Phillip Morris (Ewan McGregor). They're so in love, in fact, that Steven will go to great lengths for them to be together — even if it means escaping from prison.
