When funny women get together on screen, the result is simply magic. I know it, you know it, and audiences know it. To celebrate that, I put together this list of 22 staples in the genre. You might know a lot of them, but there are probably one or two you don't!

I am not a woman, but as a gay man, I can personally say I have never laughed harder at a film than many entries on this list. No matter who you are, if you love comedy, you're gonna find a movie for you on here.
