I'm wondering if you have any suggestions for funny movies to rent to get through this winter and to laugh the fibro away.   Thanks Stephanie

The "One Foot in the Grave" series :-) is fantastic.

I'll try to think of some more.

Here are a couple of sites with the top 100 funniest movies (I couldn't get them to make links, so you'll have to copy & paste):

I absolutely love "Auntie Mame" with Rosalind Russell.

I watch Everybody Loves Raymond on DVD. This is the same show that got me through chemo. My oldest son and I would watch it together and laugh like crazy. It's really helping me now.

I have definitely noticed that it's much easier to stay positive if you laugh out loud as much as possible.

Wonderful topic,

I can't think of anything off hand, good old fibro fog. But I know that I enjoy funny movies more than any other because they are so entertaining. I love to watch Cash Cab, which is on the discovery channel. And Dog Whisperer which is on National Geographic. They aren't necessarily funny, but they are entertaining. Cash Cab comes on in the morning and the afternoon, so when I am not working, it keeps me entertained throughout the day. Especially when I don't feel good.

Hope that you find out about lots of funny movies.

Hugs, Karen

Oh yes, Two and a Half Men is a good laughter series.

My son finally convinced me to watch "Arrested Development" on DVD. It is laugh out loud funny. Diane

One I don't recommend: Funny People. It was not funny.

If you like zombie movies, "Shawn of the Dead" and "ZombieLand" are both funny.

Friends are telling me to watch "It's always sunny in Philadelphia" but I can't vouch for it, I only saw about 10 minutes of an episode. It was funny but definitely not for everyone.

The "Ice Age" movies. Sorry guys children's movies are about I watch these days, sad huh???
 
Stephanie, if you want a big laugh come help me clean my house. Why??? It would be funnier watching two fibromites trying to clean than one.

I like "My Name is Earl", Joy's a trip. I also like "Everybody Hates Chris" that poor kid LOL I don't watch a lot of comedy these days, though I do suggest 'Leverage' on TNT, 'White Collar' on USA, 'Vampire Diaries' and "Supernatural' on CW. I miss having normal cable, no more 'Golden Girls' on Lifetime, but seems like all of the major networks have full episodes on their websites. LOL No more infomercial insomnia for me LOL

I love "Everybody Hates Chris!" One of the stations on my cable (not sure which one) just started showing reruns, and I've been watching it every evening. I grew up during the same time period, and I find it highly entertaining. :)

It's either Life or Nick Austen, those are the two we watch or I should say listen to when we go to bed.

I have found that Big Bang Theory and Two and a Half Men are both laugh-out-loud shows. I just don't like watching programs with commercials. Thanks to fibrofog, I tend to forget what I'm watching during the commercial breaks, and that's just too frustrating for me. smhair
