Between a surreal comedy about a bio-exorcist, a '70s based crime-caper, and a rom-com that everybody loves, these movies are endlessly rewatchable.
People mostly watch movies for a couple of hours of escapism, as it's a way to forget about everyday problems and immerse themselves in exciting, fantastical worlds or hilarious, satirical comedies. And, sometimes, those comedies are so fun that they could be on repeat and fans would never get bored of them, even when they know the dialogue word for word.

Between a surreal comedy about a bio-exorcist, a '70s based crime-caper, and a rom-com that everybody loves, Reddit thinks these movies are easy to throw on and are endlessly rewatchable.
SCREENRANT VIDEO OF THE DAY
Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping (2016)
After the huge success of their band, The Lonely Island, and their comedy music videos, the trio of Andy Samberg, Akiva Schaffer, and Jorma Taccone followed up with Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping. The movie widened their vision and turned their satire on the music industry into a much more expansive feature-length movie.
Mlsweeneychampions thefilm and believes that"the movie doesn't get enough love."Though it doesn't follow The Lonely Island (it instead follows a fictional version of the group called The Style Boyz,) it's just as funny as any of their three-minute music videos and is massively underrated.
Forgetting Sarah Marshall (2008)
Forgetting Sarah Marshallcame out at a perfect time and capitalized on the mid-2000s popularity of comedy actors Jason Segel, Paul Rudd, and Jonah Hill. But it also has an ingenious premise, as it follows a man who flies to Hawaii to get over his ex-girlfriend, only to end up staying in the same hotel as her.
Ripperz77thinks it's one of the most rewatchable movies because"every time it pops onTVand I come across it, I watch it."The moviehas the typicalimmature, boyishcomedy that was popularized by Judd Apatow, and it features some of the most unique characters ever found in a romantic comedy. The fictional pop star Aldous Snow is so unique that there was even a spin-off made, Get Him to the Greek, which is also mentioned by Redditors as being endlessly rewatchable.
Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World (2010)
M_s_philipscites Scott Pilgrim vs. the World as the most rewatchable comedy movie ever, arguing that they"can and have watchedit dozens of times and still chuckle at all the same spots." The action-comedyis based on a comic book, and few other movie adaptations of comic books have brought the source material to life like this 2010 movie does.
Being one of the bestobscure but awesome comedies available to stream on Netflix, Scott Pilgrim follows a regular guy who must defeat a woman's evil exes to win her over. Between its surrealism, comedy, and director Edgar Wright's frenetic filmmaking style, it was the perfect first major Hollywood movie for him to adapt and it has become a cult classic.
Hot Fuzz (2007)
Hot Fuzz is another Wright-directed movie, only it arrived in an era before he became one of the most unique directors-for-hire in Hollywood.JohnDayguycites what is referred to asWright's "Cornetto trilogy," which is made up of Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, and The World's End, and claims that"the whole trilogy is good, butHot Fuzzgetsfirstplace."

The 2007comedy is the follow-up to Shaun of the Dead, which has a just as ridiculous premise. It follows a London police officer who gets relocated to a boring, humdrum, little village, only to find out that it's being run by an Illuminati-like cult.
Dumb & Dumber (1994)
is a classic example of a movie that critics hated but audiences loved. Jim Carrey's over-the-top, goofy comedy was way too much for the pundits, but the film has since become a comedy classic.Planet_Serpois the biggest champion of the film, explaining that they've"watched it so many times over the last 20 years and I never get tired of it. The less said[of] the sequel though the better."
What the Redditor is referring to is the 2003 prequel and the 2014 sequel, which completely missed the point of the original movie. But in the end,some critics warmed to Dumb and Dumber, and even Gene Siskel and the late Roger Ebert changed their opinions on the movie, dedicating a whole episode of At The Movies to Carrey and calling the 1994 movie "great."
Between the Maitland family being possessed and singing calypso tunes and Michael Keaton's hilarious portrayal of the eponymous demon, there's no doubt thatBeetlejuiceis one of the most rewatchable comedies ever.Scarlett_48could watch the Tim Burton-directed movie on a loop.
The Redditor claims that"Beetlejuice never gets boring, Keaton is a great comedic actor and an all-around great actor." There was a sequel in development, which could have seen the actor delve deeper into the psychotic character, and it was called Beetlejuice Goes Hawaiian, but it remains in development hell to this day.
Office Space (1999)
There are tons of office-based movies and comedies, but few of them are as timeless and clever as Office Space. Reddit userBatterybatterykaboomthinks it's endlessly rewatchable, positing that "Office Space is one just because of how relatable it is to everyone who works for a living."

While rewatching a movie that reminds people so much of realistic, dead-end office jobs doesn't sound ideal, it's impossible to resist Office Space's deadpan comedy. While TV sitcoms like The Office have done a great job at recapturing the film's mix of absurdity and realism, Office Space is the true original.
The Nice Guys (2016)
After movies like Kiss Kiss Bang Bang and The Last Boy Scout, writer-director Shane Black had created a brand of unrivaled buddy cop mystery comedies, and The Nice Guys is no different.The Nice Guys wasn't a box office hit, but it's easily Black's best movie, andHorkus1thinks it's one of the most rewatchable films ever.
The Redditor is"still amazed at the comedic timing of Ryan Gosling and Russell Crowe. I didn’t really expect that from either of them." While Gosling has proved he has great comedic timing in the past, Crowe is known for his more stoic roles, but his hilarious performance in the 2016 movie was equally surprising and welcoming.
Groundhog Day (1993)
Horizonsfancitesthe 1993 comedyas the most rewatchable comedy there is, explaining that"Groundhog Dayis infinitely repeatable." The Redditor might be joking around, as the movie's premise is all about aTV field reporter who is stuck in a time-loop and has to repeat the same terrible day over and over again.
Either way, there's no denying how great and rewatchable the movie is, and it's one of the most entertaining Bill Murray-led movies ever. Not only that, but even though it doesn't attempt to explain why the reporter is stuck in a time loop, it makes better use of the idea of time loops than most science fiction movies.
Zhurithebearchampions the 2011 movie as being the most rewatchable, arguing that"Bridesmaidsis possibly one of the funniest movies of all time." And, in fairness,Bridesmaids was a phenomenon for so many different reasons and it still holds up today.
For starters, it was nominated for several Academy Awards, including Best Supporting Actress and Best Original Screenplay, which is such a rare achievement for an outright comedy movie. Kristen Wiig has also gone on to become one of the best character actors of the past decade, and it all started with her breakthrough role in the female-driven comedy.
