Holiday comedy movies on Crave


Elf (2003)

Elf is an iconic Christmas movie I watch with my family every single year.

It’s about a human named Buddy, who accidentally gets transported to the North Pole when he sneaks into Santa’s sack as a baby, and he travels to New York City as an adult who thinks he’s an elf.

He meets his real father, a cynical businessman, alongside his father’s loving wife and son.

Will Ferrell and Zooey Deschanel star in Elf!

Four Christmases (2008)

Brad and Kate plan to vacation in Fiji for the holidays, but after their plans are foiled, they’re forced to visit all four of their divorced parents for Christmas.

Vince Vaughn and Reese Witherspoon both star in Four Christmases, and it’s absolutely hilarious.

Love Actually (2003)

Love Actually is one of those classic holiday movies you just have to watch every holiday season.

Different couples in London deal with their relationships in different ways, and it shows how complicated love can be.

It’s similar to He’s Just Not That Into You, New Year’s Eve, and Valentine’s Day, except it’s the OG movie in this format!

Bridget Jones’s Diary (2001)

Bridget writes a diary focusing on how she wants to change her life, and her perspective changes drastically after two romantic encounters.

Renée Zellweger, Hugh Grant, and Colin Firth all star in Bridget Jones’s Diary.

Legally Blonde (2001 & 2003)

If you’re in need of some girl boss inspo, Legally Blonde is the movie to watch.

After Elle’s boyfriend breaks up with her to start a new life with a new girl and as a Harvard law student, Elle enrols into the same school and shows him who’s boss.

What, like it’s hard?

Even though I’ve watched Legally Blonde a gazillion times, I had no idea it was actually based on a true story.

It’s based on novelist Amanda Brown’s experiences at Stanford Law School!

Eighth Grade (2018)

Kayla is a shy and introverted eighth grader who posts videos about self-confidence online.

The coming-of-age movie was written and directed by Bo Burnham, a comedian who you might recognize from YouTube!

He casted actual eighth graders for the film, and he actually found the lead actress on YouTube while researching about teenagers for the film.

Eight Grade is totally not something for kids to watch, even though it’s about kids.

Magic Mike (2012-2023)

Experienced male stripper Mike shows the ropes to a 19-year-old he names the Kid.

Channing Tatum, Matthew McConaughey, and Alex Pettyfer star in Magic Mike!

Fun fact: it’s not a true story, but it’s inspired by Channing Tatum’s former life as a male stripper.

You can watch all three Magic Mike movies on Crave, as well as a reality show called Finding Magic Mike.

Sex and the City: The Movie (2008 & 2010)

While a lot of people didn’t love the Sex and the City movies, I loved that it was an extension of the show.

Though I did watch the movies before I watched the show!

Sex and the City: The Movie is set four years after the show, and it’s basically a continuation of Carrie, Samantha, Charlotte, and Miranda’s lives.

You can watch the original show on Crave, as well as the new series, And Just Like That!

The new series is okay, but I might be saying that because I’m sad Kim Cattrall isn’t in it.

Happy Gilmore (1996)

Adam Sandler stars as Happy Gilmore, an aspiring professional hockey player who discovers he may have a talent for an entirely different sport: golf.

When he finds out his grandmother is about to lose her home, he joins a golf tournament to try to win enough money to buy it for her.

Fun fact: Happy Gilmore is loosely based on Sandler’s childhood friend!

Bridesmaids (2011)

Bridesmaids is one of those classic comedies that never gets old.

Annie is asked by her best friend Lillian to be her maid of honour, but it all turns into a disaster when she gets into a feud with one of the other bridesmaids.

If you like this movie, you’ll also enjoy Wine Country, which you can watch on Netflix!

Father of the Bride (2022)

Father of the Bride is a super fun and wholesome rom-com about Cuban-American architect and father of the bride, Billy, and his family.

When Billy’s daughter comes home and announced she’s engaged, he panics.

I love that it’s centred around an immigrant family, and yes, it’s also a remake of the Steve Martin movie, which you can watch on Disney+ Canada!

No Hard Feelings (2023)

A desperate woman on the verge of losing her childhood home agrees to date a wealthy couple’s awkward and introverted 19-year-old son.

He actually proves to be more of a challenge than she expected, and time is running out before she loses it all.

Jennifer Lawrence stars in No Hard Feelings!

When their daughter travels to Bali and announces she’s marrying a seaweed farmer, a divorced couple rushes across the world to sabotage the wedding.

This super cute rom-com stars Julia Roberts and George Clooney as the divorced couple!

Marry Me (2022)

Popstar Kat Valdez is about to get married on stage to the love of her life, but moments before, she finds out her fiancé has been cheating on her.

She has a meltdown on-stage and ends up marrying a random stranger in the crowd – a middle school math teacher and single dad.

Marry Me is totally unrealistic but still a very cute and light-hearted rom-com worth watching.

It also stars J-Lo, Owen Wilson, Maluma, and John Bradley (Sam from Game of Thrones, which you can watch on Crave)!

Barbie (2023)

Barbie and Ken are living their best lives in the seemingly perfect Barbie Land, but when they get a chance to go to the real world, they soon discover the joys and perils of living among humans.

Action comedy movies on Crave


Jumanji franchise (1995 & 2017)

After two kids come across a magical board game called Jumanji, they discover a man who’s trapped in the game and try to rescue him.

It’s a fun movie that’s sparked a more modern remake, and you can watch the original and remake on Crave!

In Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, four students get trapped in a magical video game during detention, and they get thrown into the world.

It’s hilarious, and the cast is awesome.

While the concept is the same as the 1995 film, the fact that it’s based in a video game makes it a lot different.

Both the 1995 and 2010s versions are great in their own ways!

2 films available on Crave, watch the trailers for the 1995 & 2017 movies

Spider-Man franchises (2002-2017)

We all know and love Spider-Man, the friendly neighbourhood superhero who gets bitten by a spider and gains superhuman abilities.

You can watch all 3 of the original movies with Tobey Maguire (my fave Spider-Man), as well as the movies starring Andrew Garfield and Tom Holland as Spider-Man!

6 films available on Crave

21 Jump Street (2012)

After two cops join the secret Jump Street unit, they use their youthful appearances to go undercover as high school students.

They realize high school is nothing like when they went years ago, and they have to once again confront the teenage terror and anxiety they thought they’d left behind.

Channing Tatum, Jonah Hill, Dave Franco, Brie Larson, and Ice Cube all star in 21 Jump Street.

There’s also a sequel called 22 Jump Street, though it’s not on Crave!

Ghostbusters (1984, 1989, & 2016)

Even if you haven’t seen any of the Ghostbusters movies, you’ve definitely heard the iconic theme song before.

It’s a supernatural comedy franchise all about the Ghostbusters, a group of NYC scientists who capture ghosts for a living.

You can watch the original movies from 1984 and 1989, as well as the 2016 reboot on Crave.

Despicable Me 2 (2013)

Despicable Me is one of the cutest animated franchises ever, and the Minions are iconic.

If you haven’t heard of the franchise before, it’s all about a former supervillain-turned-secret-agent named Gru and his yellow-coloured Minions.

There are four total movies in the franchise, and you can stream the second movie on Crave.

If you didn’t know, Mike Myers voices Shrek and Eddie Murphy voices Donkey!

There’s also a spinoff all about Puss in Boots, and you can watch the second movie, Puss in Boots: The Last Wish, on Crave.

Casper (1995)

After an afterlife therapist and his daughter move into a crumbling mansion to rid of wicked spirits, they meet a friendly ghost named Casper.

I absolutely adored Casper as a kid, and you can watch this super cute movie starring a very young Christina Ricci on Crave.

You can also see her now in the TV series Yellowjackets, which you can also stream on Crave!

Space Jam (1996)

You’ll definitely remember watching the original Space Jam if you were a 90’s baby.

After Michael Jordan retires from basketball, he’s abducted by the Looney Tunes group to help defeat a group of evil aliens in a game of basketball.

It’s a fun movie to watch even as an adult, and there’s even a modern remake with LeBron James!

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (2005)

Roald Dahl was my favourite author growing up – I read all of his books as a kid!

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory was definitely one of my favourites, and it tells the story of Charlie and a group of other children who win golden tickets to visit Willy Wonka’s magical chocolate factory.

A little Freddie Highmore (from Bates Motel) stars alongside Johnny Depp, who plays Willy Wonka.

Tim Burton also directed Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.

The 2005 movie is a remake, and I actually like the OG movie from the ’70s more!

Three friends are invited to a house party, and they spend a whole day trying to score enough alcohol to impress the girls they like and kickstart their sex lives before college.

Bob and Linda try to keep the business afloat while the kids try to solve a mystery that could save the restaurant.

Assassination Nation (2018)

Four high school girls in Salem fight for their lives after a hacker exposes everyone in town’s secrets and sends the town into chaos.

The real action in Assassination Nation takes awhile, but it’s still a fun watch if you’re into horror comedies!

Beetlejuice (1988)

Beetlejuice honestly terrified me as a kid, but now I think it’s a fun classic movie.

When a deceased couple are unsuccessful in scaring away a family that’s moved into their old house, they seek the help of a bio-exorcist.
