Of all the genres out there, the one that almost everyone loves is Comedy. In fact, I’ve already written about it – twice! First was 5 Queer Comedy Films in 2022, and then 5 MORE Queer Comedy Films in 2023. There’s just something quirky and fun about comedy films that are entertaining to watch.

However, the thing I most like about the comedy genre is that it covers SO many varieties. Even IMDb’s genre definition lists a handful: “Comedy includes many sub-genres such as spoof, parody, irony, slapstick, farce, and many more.” Additionally they note that comedy “can be exclusively for the viewer, at the expense of the characters in the title, or be shared with them.”

So what kind of films did I choose to include this time? Well, these five queer comedy films below are a mixture of new and old. And I even threw in a sequel and another film belonging to a comedy saga. But most importantly, they’re all hysterical queer comedies.

So check them out below – and don’t forget to let me know what you think in the commends below!

5 Even MORE Queer Comedy Films

Casey finally lands the boyfriend of his dreams with Zack, until they meet Benji on the drive to drama camp. Suddenly, their relationship is on thin ice – especially when Benji realised this and decides to play it as straight! Will Casey lose his boyfriend?

Perhaps it’s my fan for theatre, but “Eating Out: Drama Camp” is my favourite in the series. There are no casting changes and we get even more depth to the characters we already love. “Eating Out: Drama Camp” is another hysterical romp, this time set at a drama camp with Shakespeare, a ban on ANY sex, a relationship in trouble, and a guy pretending to be straight – what more could you ask for! But most importantly, this film ends with a positive message and hope. This is definitely my favourite film in the entire saga, so check it out today!

Watch “Eating Out: Drama Camp” on Amazon, Prime Video, Apple TV+, Ariztical, GagaOOLala, Plex, and Vimeo.

As summer rolls around again, kids are gathering from all over to attend AdirondACTS, a scrappy theater camp in upstate New York that’s a haven for budding performers. After its indomitable founder Joan falls into a coma, her clueless “crypto-bro” son Troy is tasked with keeping the thespian paradise running. With financial ruin looming, Troy must join forces with Amos, Rebecca-Diane, and their band of eccentric teachers to come up with a solution before the curtain rises on opening night.

When I finally was able to watch “Theater Camp”, I was a tad confused. I couldn’t see what all the hype was about. Sure, the ending is uplifting and quite enjoyable – but in order to get to that low point where everything suddenly comes together to create magic meant going through darker moments than I expected. There also was something about Ben Platt’s character that irked me. I likely need to rewatch “Theater Camp”, but for now I leave it up to you to decide if this is a good queer film or not.

Watch “Theater Camp” on Prime Video, Apple TV+, and Hulu.

After they accidentally injure their high school’s star quarterback Jeff by hitting him with a car, transforming them from awkward outcasts to overnight celebrities, best friends PJ and Josie concoct an elaborate lie about having spent time in a juvenile correction facility over the summer, and with their equally-awkward friend Hazel and teacher Mr G, they start a self-defense club for women in an attempt to lose their virginities to Brittany and Isabel, their cheerleader crushes.

“Bottoms” was a rather interesting queer film. It’s obviously queer, focusing on two lesbian high school girls and their sex drive. And while the final ending wraps everything up nicely as intended, the path to get there wasn’t as nice. I could not connect with either of our two lead girls, and the jocks – atrocious. Some of the other girls in the club were interesting characters though. It’s not too hard to see what the writers were going for and I could even see similar elements from other great films. But even when you drag the leads through hell for their redemption, you have to get the interest of the viewer. “Bottoms” did not do that for me, but perhaps you’ll enjoy it.

Watch “Bottoms” on Prime Video and Apple TV+.

A comedy about a religious mother who is determined to stop her gay son’s wedding. But her plans go awry when she accidentally befriends his fiancé and begins dispensing relationship advice.

Sequels are often a tricky thing, and rarely are they as good as the first film. However there is one rule that you don’t break: don’t recast ALL of your leads! Upon discovering this when “You Should Meet My Son! 2” came out, I was very reluctant. Thankfully I gave this sequel a shot – and LOVED it! Is it perfect? Nope, but neither is the first film. If you’re looking for a queer comedy full of gags and a quirky storyline but aren’t looking for the best writing, then this is a good queer comedy to watch.

Watch “You Should Meet My Son! 2” on Prime Video and Apple TV+.

The manager of a Saint-Tropez nightclub featuring drag entertainment, and his star attraction, are a gay couple. Madness ensues when his straight son brings home a fiancée and her ultra-conservative parents to meet them.

Thoughts?

Watch “La Cage Aux Folles” on Amazon, Prime Video, and Apple TV+.
