Here are four of the funniest comedy films to watch this weekend:

‘Fading Gigolo’

Woody Allen starring in a comedy is incentive enough for any cinephile to hit the play button, but this funny little gem also has the supremely talented John Turturro don the director’s hat, apart from featuring in the title role. Fading Gigolo is the story of Fioravante, a man who decides to solve his friend’s money troubles by joining the “oldest profession in the world”.

With a cast that also includes Modern Family star Sofia Vergara along with the scintillating Sharon Stone, this one is for fans of cheeky wit and intelligent banter.


Sir Michael Caine, Harvey Keitel and the majestic snow-capped Alps, now that’s quite a delightful combo, isn’t it? Youth follows the journey of Fred (Caine) and Mick (Keitel), two old-time chums who are on a vacation up in the Swiss mountains. While Fred is a retired musician, Mick is a filmmaker on the verge of finishing a very important script, one he believes would be his “last great movie”. As the two lifelong pals witness changing times and observe their children’s complicated lives, Fred receives a royal offer he literally “can’t refuse”. Laden with warm moments and sweet laughs, this film will tickle its way into your heart.
