Top Ten Funny Sci-Fi Movies | Sci-Fi Month


Last week I posted about 10 Scary Sci-Fi movies. Today, I'm going to list 10 Sci-Fi movies that made me laugh, whether they intended to be funny or not. I have to admit, it was a LOT more difficult to find funny sci-fi movies than scary ones, so some of these may be a bit of a stretch.

1. Evolution: I feel like this movie doesn't get as much credit as it should have. My family watched this in theaters and had a great time. I do wish they had gone with the alternate ending, though.

2. Men In Black: As a kid, this was one of the very few alien movies that I could watch without getting scared. 

3. Eight Legged Freaks: This is a movie you have to go into with absolutely zero expectations in order to have a good time. But it is still a good time. ^_^

4. They Live: I don't know if the creators of this movie intended for it to be so funny, but I had a great laugh.

5. Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure: There may be some who argue that this isn't Sci-Fi, but the time-travel alone makes it count for me.

6. Wall-E: Okay, yeah, this is more "cute" than "funny", but I'm still counting it.

7. Weird Science: This is a more recent watch for me, but the humor in this seems to be ageless. 

8. Serenity: Again, probably not the first thing you think of for a "funny" Sci-Fi Movie, but Serenity (and Firefly) wouldn't be what they are without their strong sense of humor.

9. The World's End: Again, a more recent watch, but so much fun. I appreciate movies where you can tell the actors had fun making the movie.

10. Ghostbusters: I feel like this is an iconic Funny Sci-Fi Movie. In so many ways, this movie set the standard for those that came after. 

I know I've left out a bunch, so tell me, what are some of your favorite Sci-Fi laughs?


  1. Haha, great list! Men in Black is a favorite of mine for its silly-ness. Guardians of the Galaxy is one I'd add to this list, it made me laugh the whole way :P


    1. There are so many that I forgot to add as well. I'm so glad there's no end to the funny sci-fi movies. ^_^

  2. Weird Science, what a great film! fantastic list.

    1. I only saw it once, but it definitely left an impression.
