Netflix Closes Deal To Become “Exclusive Pay TV Home” Of Star Wars, Pixar And Marvel Content From September

24 May 2016 8:57 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Word comes via the company’s latest blog post outlining the projects set to be added throughout the summer. Those original features include Brad Pitt-fronted drama War Machine, along with Mascots, the comedy flick helmed by Christopher Guest.

Need a good laugh, but only got an hour and a half? Might we recommend this little lot...

I’m of the firm belief that films work most effectively when their runtime is 90 minutes or less. It forces an economy of story and dialogue which propels the film into its best self. No bloated middle, extended ending, or wasted stories here. This goes double for comedies. They should never outstay their welcome. But they seem to be getting longer, as we recently pointed out here.

So to refresh your movie comedy palette, here are 25 films that are 90 minutes or under. I’ve tried to avoid the more obvious ones, and shine a light on those comedies which might have gone a bit unappreciated over the years, but are well worth a hour and a half of your time. This lean runtime isn’t a guarantee of greatness of course, »
