One of the best ways to unwind and revitalize is to watch good comedy movies. It doesn’t matter if you’ve had a bad day or a good one. Comedy movies always help you take the stress off. But – wait! Are all comedy movies as good as they are marketed by the media? Obviously no, as some of them are a big waste of money and you quit watching them after some time. However, good movies will turn your boring day into a hoot. Here’s a list of some great movies that you can sit back and enjoy with your family and kids. Some of them require parental guidance.

These are some of the most fantastic comedy movies you can ever watch.

Movies are not only a source of entertainment, but they are also a source of education. All movies have a theme around which the story is woven. Apart from that “laughter is the best medicine”.

Parents generally feel that by watching movies, the kids waste time and don’t concentrate on their studies. While this may be true is extreme cases, whereby children are watching movies for over 3 hours a day, it will not hurt if you watch one small one-hour movie during weekends. Everyone wants to relax and have fun – even kids. So, why not be a part of their fun? You don’t know what great, innocent remarks kids make when they watch a movie. Some of them have even dedicated a Facebook page for movies like Twilight (which most of the kids haven’t liked).

You should remember that as a caregiver, it is important that you monitor your children and make sure that they watch comedy movies, which are appropriate for their ages, and so that they remain out of trouble. Also, they would not enjoy a movie, which they cannot understand.

One of the best places to access such movies is Internet. There are many websites, which have relevant information, and as you conduct your search you will find several websites that offer genuine reviews. You can ask your family and friends for referrals on the best comedy movies.

It is OK to go to a theater, but there is nothing like enjoying a good comedy movie in the comforts of your home.
