Payton’s Top Three Comedy Faves

Payton Coulter, Staff Reporter

2016 Ghostbusters

This movie is about four women who try to prove that ghosts are real. When strange things appear in Manhattan, these women try to help the city.

In the end, the women find out that a man is putting transporters to summon ghosts in order to help him take over the world. But the women stop him and become heroes.

I chose this because of the way the script is written to be scary and funny at the same time, is truly marvelous, and the storyline goods together.

Meet The Parents

Meet the Parents is a movie about a couple who goes to meet the girlfriend’s parents. The father is a man who had worked for the CIA and is very strict about the boyfriend, Greg Focker.

When Greg tries to impress the father, everything goes wrong. He breaks his mother’s urn, loses the cat, and destroys his girlfriend’s’ sister’s wedding. There are also two sequels.

I chose this because there are so many things that go wrong and that makes is so funny. The cast worked well together, and the script was phenomenal.

Happy Gilmore

Happy Gilmore is about a terrible hockey player who tries playing golf to buy his grandma’s house back. Since his slap shot was so good and can hit the golf ball over 400 yards in just one hit.

Gilmore is played by Adam Sandler, one of my favorite actors. Sandler portrays him as a man in his 30’s who acts like a little boy.

Happy doesn’t even want to play golf and when he does, he acts terribly. There are so many battles that he has to face allowing viewers to see him grow during the movie.
