Anna’s Heart on Comedy in Christian Movies

anna_heartWhat is comedy anyway?

Comedy = Professional entertainment consisting of jokes and satirical sketches, intended to make an audience laugh.


Even though I love to laugh, I rarely enjoy comedy for 2 reasons.

not-funnyNormally, a comedy means one of two things:

  • It’s inappropriate humor
  • It’s ridiculous stupidity type of humor


When we watch a Christian movie, it should be a safe place, even in a comedy, but that isn’t always the case.  There have even been some Christian themed movies that we had to turn off because they were so offensive.

I can hear the complaints now from comedy lovers all over the planet, but the truth is…what would Jesus think?

loveDoes it fit the principle of Philippians 4:8Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.

I am not saying that every story has to be true, but it should be pure.  Even films that are realistic have tasteful ways of implying things without actual showing them, same goes with comedy.  If the film causes the filmmaker or the acting/film crew or viewer to sin then somewhere along the way there has been a compromise and that is a dangerous place to be…outside of God’s will.

comedy_time_logo1There have been a few comedies that we really enjoyed so we’ll mention of few of them here:

And my all time favorites…Some real laugh out loud moments in each of these and a couple classics with powerful messages.

Christian Dating: The Movie – The Pizza Place Scene
Road to Redemption – The 8 Track pause while singing – this scene actually made me cry I was laughing so hard. The pill bottle scene too.
Hidden Secrets – The fall off the roof
Ordinary Guy – The Altar call moment and the Flower scene towards the end

If you don’t recognize some of these, you may want to watch them.  They’ll make you smile!

    Appreciate the comedy recommendations, as I am going thru a very rough time in my life now. Even though I may not feel like it, I still need to laugh!

    Sorry Mary to hear about your rough time – it seems that each person I meet, including myself, seems to be going through some sort of trial.
