By Sabrina

There are so many hilarious, quirky comedies on Netflix that you could have movie night every night for forever! Among all the adorable, quirky comedies on Netflix, there are some that just rise above the rest. Here are a few of the most delightful comedies available.

1 Frances Ha

Frances Ha is by far my favorite quirky comedy on Netflix! Probably because Frances is such a real, relatable character who finds herself in the most humorous situations. Even when things get rough, Frances handles them well, which is inspiring. The dialogue as well as the messes Frances finds herself in will have you laughing for sure!


GBF received great ratings, and is a highly-acclaimed comedy. Although it's not exactly politically correct 100% of the time, it's a fun movie to watch and, in the end, it teaches great morals.The movie details the life of a gay teenager who is the first boy to come out at his school. His sexuality earns him a wave of attention from all of the most popular girls in school competing for a gay best friend. The friendships he forms before and after coming out are sure to have you laughing throughout your movie-watching experience!

3 Amelie

If you are a fan of foreign films, you ought to watch Amelie! Audrey Tautou does a splendid job at being a quirky, adorable character. Her presence alone makes the film hilarious, but the writing is artistic, creative, and above all funny!

4 Penelope

For a fun family film, consider Penelope, the tale of a girl with a pig nose! The story alone has a funny premise, but the acting and plot line take the film to the next level. Your little ones are bound to love it, and you may enjoy this quirky comedy, too! So pop some popcorn and get the whole family together for a movie night filled with laughter.

5 Funny Face

For the classic fans, Netflix has a several classic comedies. One of my favorites is Funny Face, starring Audrey Hepburn and Fred Astaire. With names like those, how can the movie be anything short of perfect? The actors interact wonderfully and truly bring this light-hearted, lively plot to life!

6 Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day

Another family-friendly film is Miss Pettigrew Lives For a Day. However, this one may be more suited for families with older kids, who don’t need tons of action and can handle less obvious jokes. Frances McDormand and Amy Adams are an invincible pair of women living in pre-WWII London. Their relationship is adorable and their exciting antics are guaranteed to make you and your family members chuckle!

7 Safety Not Guaranteed

Safety Not Guaranteed is about as quirky as a movie can get! Every character is at least a little bit awkward, but that’s what makes the film so enjoyable. When three burgeoning reporters set out to meet with a possible time traveller, you know they’re in for a wild ride! Journey with the wild, eclectic group for your next movie night- entertainment guaranteed!

Every movie has a time and place - dramas, mysteries, thrillers - but sometimes all you need is a fun, light-hearted comedy with a quirky cast! If you are looking for something to give you a case of the giggles, watch one of these films. Which movies have piqued your interest? What other quirky comedies do you love?
