    You know? British comedies like 'The Boat That Rocked', 'Paul', 'Ali G in da House', 'Kingsman' or 'About a boy'??!?!

    You need to watch some comedy my friend. It shall liven up your sense of humour.
    I've seen Kingsman, that's a class film! I almost forgot about it actually, are the other films you mentioned similar to Kingsman? I might give them a watch if they are

    Not a British comedy by any means, but if you have never watched Eternal Sunshine of The Spotless Mind then watch it. So so good

    Who doesn't love SBC??! Ali G is the best but really did love General President Alladeen (however you spell it) and I loved Eddie so much- Taron is a great actor

    I have in fact seen this film. I even brought the book the film was based from because I loved it so much. I thought it was bloody hilarious and I still do. It's packed full with the great British humour I love. I would even go as far as to say it's one of my most favorite films of all time.
    It is a great film but it only had 3 stars on Netflix 😢 In that case, I also enjoyed the Alan partridge film, it's obviously got British humour and I've seen it a few times and still laugh out loud
