You’re going to have plenty of time to scroll through your streaming services in search of something to watch.
You’re also going to need a break to relax, unwind and not think about the state of the world — at least for a couple of hours.
With that in mind, here’s a guide to some comfort comedies, movies you already know that can make you laugh, whenever you need it:
“Groundhog Day”: Is every day starting to feel the same? Bill Murray can relate.
“Step Brothers”: Pure, dumb fun from Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly.
“Ferris Bueller’s Day Off”: Anyone? Anyone?
“Monty Python and the Holy Grail”: It’s perfectly silly.
“The Naked Gun”: You almost can’t help but laugh. “The Naked Gun 2 1/2: The Smell of Fear” is here as well.
“Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery”: It’s groovy, baby. The same can’t always be said of the two sequels, “Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me” and “Austin Powers in Goldmember,” which are here, too.
“Police Academy”: No one’s going to accuse this of being a great movie, but these goofballs hung around long enough to make six sequels. All of them are available on Netflix.
“National Lampoon’s Vacation”: Even the worst family trip is starting to look pretty good right about now.
“National Lampoon’s Animal House”: Deltas forever!
“The Breakfast Club” and “Sixteen Candles”: John Hughes, Molly Ringwald and Anthony Michael Hall capture high school in the 1980s.
“Fast Times at Ridgemont High”: No one could have predicted this cast would include three future Oscar winners in Sean Penn, Nicolas Cage and Forest Whitaker.
“Bridesmaids”: That food poisoning scene.
“Airplane!”: Looks like I picked the wrong week to quit sniffing glue.
“Spaceballs”: May the Schwartz be with you.
