3 Idiots - Netflix

One of Bollywood superstar Aamir Khan's most memorable films to date is "3 Idiots," an epic comedy-drama set within two timelines. Loosely based on Chetan Bhagat's "Five Point Someone," the story begins with two friends, Farhan and Raju, as they embark on a mission to find their beloved friend Rancho, someone they haven't seen for a decade.

Throughout their journey, Farhan recalls the moments of how their eccentric and clever friend changed his and Raju's lives during their college years at a premier engineering school. Although the film is a perfect feel-good story that will leave you smiling at the end, it certainly doesn't shy away from serious topics. It not only centers around a once-in-lifetime friendship, but it also turns the spotlight on the social pressures that a strict and traditional education system puts on the shoulders of its students.

  • Starring: Aamir Khan, R. Madhavan, Sharman Joshi
  • Director: Rajkumar Hirani
  • Year: 2009

In fact, James might even be falling for her — too bad she's dating the dreamy maintenance man. While falling in love and barking for carnival games, James will soon realize Adventureland might be all he needs to have an unforgettable summer. In turn, we're treated to one of the most underrated coming-of-age comedies, one with a brilliant cast and relatable story that reflects the weird transitional period of a young adult's post-college life.

A hidden-camera comedy, "Bad Trip" follows two best friends, Eric André's Chris and Lil Rel Howery's Bud, who embark on a trip of a lifetime in hopes of Chris finally confessing his feelings to his high school crush. But without a car of their own, they steal the car of Chris' convicted sister, Tiffany Haddish's Trina ... who then escapes from prison. Unaware of Trina chasing after them, the two friends happily continue their trip, where they get involved in some crazy public shenanigans.

In addition to the plot, there's also the prank element as Andre, Howery, and Haddish mess with everyone around them. As a result, the film features some of the best hidden-camera reactions, as the cast plays their parts without any hesitation.

Before 1989's "Batman," Tim Burton and Michael Keaton teamed up for the supernatural comedy "Beetlejuice."

Unable to scare the family away themselves, they decide to turn to the mischievous Betelgeuse, a self-proclaimed freelance "bio-exorcist," to do the job and terrorize the Deetzes.

The Edge of Seventeen - Netflix

In "The Edge of Seventeen," Hailee Steinfeld delivers an honest and relatable leading performance as Nadine, an awkward high school junior who always feels like the world is falling on her. She struggles to grasp the realities of growing up, especially when her only best friend has now become her popular older brother's girlfriend. With the only person keeping her grounded no longer by her side, she turns to the chill and straightforward teacher Mr. Bruner for emotional support.

Despite being one of the best coming-of-age comedies from the 2010s, "The Edge of Seventeen" is criminally underrated. Steinfeld and Woody Harrelson's lunch break scenes are some of the highlights of the film. It's cleverly and awkwardly funny and, at times, heartbreaking. This film perfectly encapsulates the anxieties of being a social outcast and how hard it is to find someone to relate to, particularly when you're a teenager. 

  • Starring: Hailee Steinfeld, Woody Harrelson, Haley Lu Richardson
  • Director: Kelly Fremon Craig
  • Year: 2016

Believing that she'll be an overbearing leader, Jim convinces popular student athlete Paul Metzler to enter the election. Tracy's chances of winning continue to get challenged as another presidential candidate arrives in Paul's younger sister, the iconoclastic Tammy, who becomes an instant crowd favorite due to her rebellious platform. A satire of politics in general and the 1992 election specifically, "Election" still works today thanks to its biting, savage comedy.

  • Director: Alexander Payne
  • Year: 1999
  • Runtime: 103 minutes
  • Rating: R
  • Rotten Tomatoes Score: 92%

Ferris Bueller's Day Off - Paramount+

A definitive '80s classic, "Ferris Bueller's Day Off" follows the titular high school senior as he plays hooky with his best friend and girlfriend. They enjoy an idyllic Chicago day — but of course, the powers that be are determined to spoil their fun. This movie has it all: Light-hearted humor, well-crafted storytelling, memorable characters, and an iconic musical number that perfectly captures the essence of youth. Matthew Broderick nails Ferris' irresistible charm, while Alan Ruck's performance as Cameron Frye, Ferris' friend, is honest and engaging.

George of the Jungle - Disney+

Spoofing on the classic tale of "Tarzan," "George of the Jungle" introduces an adult man who grew up all alone in the jungle after a plane crash, and as a result, he was raised by an intelligent speaking ape. Brendan Fraser leads the comedy as the naive but courageous titular king of the jungle, who has the tendency to crash into trees or walls. His life changes when he meets the beautiful Ursula, a wealthy and kind woman from the city, who decides to bring George back to America.

"George of the Jungle" is famous for its catchy theme song, which was first created for the classic 1960s animated series of the same name. And while the animatronic animals are quite fun, the real draw is Fraser. Seriously, who doesn't love the guy — especially here? The actor is at his most charming swinging through the trees, and any Fraser fans owes it to themselves to check out this family-friendly adventure.

But when he wakes up the following morning, he learns it's Groundhog Day once more. He's stuck reliving the same 24 hours, over and over again. This seems like a curse — but in fact, it gives him the opportunity to become a much better person. 

Bill Murray delivers a captivating comedic performance as Phil, a prickly jerk whose redemption arc proves to be enormously satisfying. Years after its debut, "Groundhog Day" remains beloved, and boasts an impressive legacy — one wonders if we'd have similar time loop projects like "Palm Springs" and "Russian Doll" without it.
