Are the holiday stresses getting you down, having you turn green, and suddenly making you want to steal Christmas? Well, that identity has already been taken, but you could certainly use a laugh to get you out of a holiday funk. Luckily, Netflix and its red cape is here to save you. Funny movies to watch on Netflix range from, "Damn, this is funny,"  to, "Wow, I almost didn't make it to the bathroom."

That's the glorious thing about Netflix — they're always swapping out movie options, which means you get a good variety. Funny is funny, though, and we all know the magical medicine that can be soaked up from laughter. The holidays are great and all, but it can really have you feeling spent and all over the place.

We want our jolly back, and one of the best ways to do that is to laugh until your cheeks hurt. Be basic and participate in a few Netflix and chill sessions, and before you know it, that funky attitude will subside and you'll be feeling rejuvenated. Trust me, the holiday blues and frustration happens to the best of us. Let's not wait until the full-on Scrooge mode has overcome you. Whisk away all of those bad vibes with a few of these flicks.

1'Talladega Nights'

CrackleUK on YouTube

For starters, Will Ferrell is freaking hilarious. He always knows how to add his own style to any movie he is in. Watch how he takes on the role of a NASCAR driver who temporarily loses his way and has to find his mojo again on the tracks.

2'I Love You, Man'

Paramount Movies on YouTube

Paul Rudd is so adorable, you'll love watching him engage in a funny bromance. Find out what happens when a sweet guy is on the hunt for his best man, because he's totally a chick magnet in the friends department. Men's idea of bonding is an interesting comedy within itself.

3'The Incredible Jessica James'

Netflix on YouTube

Looking for something real... and funny? Mix together an odd, but worth it meeting between a woman getting over a breakup and a divorcee, and you have yourself a rollercoaster of laughs. You may even get a little dose of a love story, too.

4'Sleeping With Other People'

IFC Films on YouTube

The idea of dating is so confusing these days, it's kind of funny. So, when you have two people who are trying to figure it all out, you've gotta wonder if what they've been looking for is right in front of them. OK, you caught me, it's a romantic comedy, but comedy, nonetheless.

5'Boat Trip'

LionsgateVOD on YouTube

When a couple of pals are looking to relieve some stress by going on a cruise, they find out that they're in store for the complete opposite. Witness the overlapping of two different lifestyles, and get ready to wipe away tears from laughing so hard.

6'Miss Congeniality'

Movieclips Trailer Vault on YouTube

Besides the fact that Sandra Bullock gets to kiss Benjamin Bratt in this movie, it's worth watching. Bullock, an FBI agent, has to go undercover and enter a pageant so she can track down a potential threat. And let's just say, she had to learn a lot more than how to walk in heels.

7'Are We There Yet?'

Sony Pictures Home Entertainment on YouTube

I mean, this movie has Ice Cube in it, so why wouldn't you want to watch it? When Ice Cube helps out single mom, Nia Long, by driving her two kids to their father, he learns that they are far from angelic. But along the way, the rocky road subsides, and they hit a few soft spots... in between a circus of events.  

Laughter is seriously the food to the soul. And with the stresses that can happen around the holidays, we may need a few platefuls.
