Best Comedy Movies on Netflix for People Who Hate Stupid Comedy

If you’re not a fan of Dumb and Dumber, struggle to get through the entirety of Dude, Where’s My Car?

They see the disc as presenting an opportunity to have life-changing cosmetic surgery performed; however, as you would expect, things don’t go as smoothly as planned.

The movie stars Brad Pitt, John Malkovich, George Clooney, Frances McDormand, and Tilda Swinton.
