8 Comedies to Watch with Your Boyfriend ...


Every woman will know that awkward moment when she or her boyfriend suggests watching a DVD, and both then go silent as they wonder what on earth to watch.

Rare is the guy who will watch, much less enjoy, a ‘chick flick’, and it can be hard to find something to appeal to both parties.

Relax – I’ve done the work for you.

Here are 8 comedies to watch with your boyfriend.

1. Wedding Crashers

Guys can cope with this because it stars Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson, and they’re not romcom stars, right?

Besides, they can relate to the idea of crashing parties for the free food and drink.

Girls can eye up Owen Wilson – I believe he’s quite popular.

2. The 40 Year Old Virgin

Here’s another film that will please both sides.

It’s actually quite sweet, as well as funny, and doesn’t make fun of the main character.

Steve Carroll is great as the eponymous virgin.

3. Animal House

Not all girls will enjoy this, but if you’re in the mood for a loud, fun, raucous movie then give it a go.

Personally I love it – especially the parade scene at the end.

Don’t expect a classy movie, just sit back and enjoy a good laugh.

4. Young Frankenstein

Something of a precursor to the Scary Movie series (but a lot funnier), Young Frankenstein is a comedy classic.

There are lots of great moments, but particularly of note is the dance routine … I defy anyone not to laugh at that scene!

5. Grosse Point Blank

More of a wry comedy than a laugh-out-loud one, this is a great comedy to watch with your boyfriend.

It might not seem too amusing that the main character is a contract killer, but place that within the setting of a school reunion, and the odd juxtaposition makes for an original concept.
