Best New Comedy movies 2019

They say the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach – but nobody’s quite managed to figure out the route to the funny bone! If there’s one thing we know about comedy, it’s that it comes in all sorts of forms; from devishly dark to fabulously farcical, and superb slapstick to pointed parody, there’s a whole lot of variety out there!


And right now on Virgin Movies you can find something for every taste; no matter what it is that makes you laugh, we reckon we’ve got something to split your sides. We’ve picked out a handful of crackers for starters; let’s see you keep a straight face watching this lot…

Anchored by an Oscar-winning performance from Olivia Colman, this madcap masterpiece is director Yorgos Lanthinos at his brilliant, ebulliant best. Mixing dryly comic moments and flights of fantasy, as well as razor-sharp dialogue from the rivals for Queen Anne’s affections, it’s an uproarious film that deserved every award and plaudit sent its way!

If you think you’ve seen it all in films, then try this one for size; we guarantee you’ll barely believe your eyes. A delirious and disorienting journey of a football player who’s lost his magic touch, it rolls political satire, fantasy and sci-fi into a slice of singular, spacey weirdness. Strap yourself in; it’s an incredible trip in more ways than one!

The 11th film in Tyler Perry’s long-running franchise sees the gang back together for a joyous reunion – which, as you’d expect, doesn’t exactly run according to plan! Snappy banter and saucy slapstick are in plentiful supply, as is the main man himself; it’s been suggested that this will the last time we see the family on screen, so enjoy it while you can!

The main character might be a stand-up comedian, but this ain’t a night at the Laugh Factory; instead, it’s a raw and ready film that doesn’t shirk the personal and emotional – and, in fact, embraces it. Mary Elizabeth Winsted shines just as brightly as the sophisticated script, while the combination of heartache and humour has a real iron fist/velvet glove effect!

Jennifer Lopez is the magnetic protagonist in this warm and witty rom-com; the very type of movie that turned Jenny From The Block to J-Lo in the first place! She’s far from alone in proceedings – with Leah Remini’s sassy-best-friend turn a standout – while there’s enough clever twists in the script to throw any presumptions out the window within the first half hour…
