According to Rotten Tomatoes, These are 30 Essential Comedy Movies

30. Raising Arizona (1987)

Rating: 91%

The Coen brothers are responsible for a number of entertaining/good films, but Raising Arizona might just be there most enjoyable creation. The screwball comedy stars Nicolas Cage as H.I., an ex-conman, and Holly Hunter as Ed — an ex-cop. Upon meeting, the two opposites get along swimmingly and eventually tie the knot.

However, the couple soon learns that H.I. is unable to have children. As a result, the two decide to steal a baby from a furniture tycoon named Nathan Arizona. Instead of laughing at memes of Nic Cage, Raising Arizona is the perfect film to laugh alongside the famed actor.

Clueless has only become more popular with time. Well received when it was released in 1995, the Alicia Silverstone starrer has enjoyed a renaissance in recent years as a new generation of kids stumbled upon the comedy.
