We continue our Favorites of 2013 with our favorite comedy movies of the year!

Warm Bodies

{Mandeville Films}

I hate horror films. The only zombie movies I have ever seen were Shaun of the Dead and Zombieland. This film was different because it showed the mind of a zombie. It was interesting to see Hoult’s zombie slowly turn back into a human being as he became hotter (yes, I’m shallow). Plus Rob Corddry is in it. —Becca

The Heat

{Chernin Entertainment/Dune Entertainment}

“If you’re not in trouble, you’re not doing your job.”

This was easily my favorite comedy of the year. I love how Mullins and Ashburn learn to accept each other, and McCarthy and Bullock are a hilarious duo. When the movie was over, I found myself wondering why those two hadn’t collaborated years ago. (It was also written by Katie Dippold, a writer for Parks and Recreation.)–Kerry

Quartet

{Headline Pictures/BBC Films}

I love, love, love, this movie. A tale of retired musicians all in a home together was so enjoyable. The cast was wonderful, and Billy Connolly was a riot. One highlight is seeing Michael Gambon, who is always in a robe and bossing others around. —Becca

The Hangover: Part III

{Legendary Pictures}

“What’s your password?”
“Hey, Phil?”
“Yeah?”
“No, that’s it.”
“What?”
“That’s my password: ‘Hey Phil.’”

It was critically panned, but I loved this final installment of The Hangover series. —Kerry

The World’s End

{Relativity Media/Working Title Films/Big Talk Productions}

This is the final movie of the Cornetto trilogy. I thought I knew what I was getting into after seeing Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz, but I was wrong. It went deeper into Pegg’s character this time, and the pain was visible. I loved the detail and intricacy they put into this movie. —Becca

Identity Thief

{Relativity Media}

“Do you know what a sociopath is?”
“Do they like ribs?”

I was surprised by how much I liked this movie. I thought it would be typical romcom fare, but it turned out to have a lot of heart, thanks in large part to Melissa McCarthy. It wasn’t a perfect movie–the whole subplot with Eric Stonestreet was weird and could’ve been cut out, and the main story itself ends up wandering at points–but it’s worth watching for the laughs, the antics, and the sweet friendship that blossoms between McCarthy and Jason Bateman’s characters. —Kerry
