The 10 Best Comedy Movies of All Time

NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- There is nothing better than a funny movie. The memorable one-liners and side-splitting moments of hilarity get viewers hooked. The funniest movies will grab onto an audience and won’t let go, taking them on a crazy adventure.

Whoever said, “Laughter is the best medicine” obviously knew what they were talking about. The funniest movies have the ability to improve our mood when we’re having a bad day and make us forget about whatever worries we might have.

Audrey Hepburn once said, “I honestly think it’s the thing I like most, to laugh. It cures a multitude of ills. It’s probably the most important thing in a person.”

A funny movie takes the viewer out of the realm of reality as they watch an improbable scenario unfold, then bare witness as the characters make things worse before they get better. 

Below is a list of 10 of the funniest movies of all time:

10. Mrs. Doubtfire

Released: 1993

This family comedy stars Robin Williams and Sally Field as a bitterly divorced couple fighting over their kids’ custody arrangement. Williams’ character refuses to be separated from his children, and with the help of his make-up artist brother, transforms himself into an elderly British woman, becoming the family housekeeper.

Famous Quote: Mrs. Doubtfire (after throwing fruit at his ex’s boyfriend): “Oh sir, I saw it! Some angry member of the kitchen staff, did you not tip them? Oh, the terrorists! They ran that way. It was a run-by fruiting.”
