ALL TRUE STORY Comedy Movies
Everyone knows that real life is often funnier than fiction. This is part of the reason that TV shows like America's Funniest Home Videos and websites like YouTube are so successful. So, it's no surprise that the fact-based stories behind true comedy movies end up finding their way to the big screen. Whether it's a dark comedy that we feel guilty laughing at because we know it's true, or a biopic about an individual whose circumstances and personality both exude copious amounts of humor, comedy movies based on true stories have the ability to tickle our funny-bone and peek our interest at the same time, especially when we're told that what we're seeing is based in fact.
