5 must see comedies on Netflix

I have just come across the best Netflix search engine. Flixlist provides a full list of Netflix Movies and TV Shows and makes searching for something you want to watch so easy.

I have been having a browse of the comedy listings and have turned up 5 I really fancy watching.

Roxanne is a rom com I saw years ago and just adored.  It is based on the play “Cyrano de Bergerac”, large nosed C.D. Bales falls for the beautiful Roxanne while she falls for his personality but another man’s looks. It’s very sweet and I do love Steve Martin.

Waking Ned Devine

This is the story of  a lottery winner who dies of shock and his fellow townsfolk attempt to claim the money. I haven’t yet seen it but I have heard such amazing things about it .


White men can’t jump

Can you believe I have never seen this depsite being an absolute classic and starring my complete crush Woody Harrelson, who plays Billy.?  In the film Billy pretends to be a goofy white guy with no skills, earning  his keep by hustling pickup basketball games on Los Angeles playgrounds. I am scheduling it  in my diary as I write. It might be a bit dated but it has Woody in it!


I am a big fan of Adam Sandler and I haven’t yet seen Click, have you? Not one of his best known film I do think the concept sounds funny.  In the film workaholic architect finds a universal remote that allows him to fast-forward and rewind to different parts of his life. Complications arise when the remote starts to overrule his choices. Cannot wait to see this and have a good giggle!

How to be single

I do love a rom com and this 2016 release looks fab. It follows a  group of young adults as they try to navigate love and relationships in New York City.

Take a look here for the trailer for this one
