Should there be more comedies? Yes, because that can give people a sense of humor and they can laugh more. Who doesn’t like a good laugh these days?

The comedies these days are getting way better thanks to the amazing and funny actors that exist and allow us to enjoy their sense of humor in a film.”

Comedies always make a person’s day. According to scientists, laughter can prolong your life. I personally think laughter is the best medicine when sad, or depressed. When I’m depressed I always watch a comedy movie, and I even cry of laughing a lot and at the end I feel better and in a happy mood.

The comedies these days are getting way better thanks to the amazing and funny actors that exist and allow us to enjoy their sense of humor in a film. A couple of my favorite comedy actors are Will Ferrell, Kevin Hart, Chris Rock, Adam Sandler, Mark Wahlberg, James Franco, Ken Jeong, Robert Downey Jr., Johnny Depp, Emma Stone, Woody Harrelson and many more.

Comedies allow people to relax and have a good time. Comedies are also better for a family to watch and kids to enjoy. There are many comedy movies with my favorite actors that I won’t stop watching. Comedies in a way are better for families with children to watch instead of scary movies that can terrorize kids every night or action movies that show too much violence.

Recently, I was able to watch a newly released comedy with my family. Two of my favorite actors came out in the movie “Daddy’s Home.” They were Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg. This movie is about a step-dad, Brad Whitaker (Will Ferrell), who is trying to get his step children to love him and call him Dad, but everything turns upside down when Dusty Mayron (Mark Wahlberg), the biological father, returns. This movie was incredibly hilarious that my family and I enjoyed. I’m looking forward to a second part of this movie. I hope there is going to be another one.

I do think there should be more comedies. I know that this year (2016) there are a few coming out that families can watch and enjoy such as Finding Dory, Ice Age: Collision Course, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows, and Storks.

I’m ready for some good laughs later this year with more comedies coming out and that my family and I will enjoy.
