Here you'll find a collection of funny movies for Scorpios chalked full of dry wit, dark humor, and plenty of sarcastic characters. When you ask those born under this sign what comedies Scorpios will like, you may get a few answers that include films that you didn't even realize where comedy movies. Though they tend to be very introspective and love a good brood, Scorpios are also keen observers of human nature and may pick up on humor that other signs tend to miss. Also well versed in the art of sarcasm, Scorpios tend to love the ironic and humor that others might even consider a little dark.

What comedies will you find here? Burn After Reading is a somewhat overlooked Coen brothers film that blends humor with some fairly dark subject material, the plot centering around various interrelated absurd situations. Monty Python's Life of Brian is comedic at its core, but grapples with depressing subject material. Films like Shaun of the Dead and The Big Lebowski - while largely humorous in tone, explore some weighty themes under the surface. 

While these comedies for Scorpios may not be what some people would consider over the top knee slappers, they reflect the blend of heady humor that most Scorpios in your life are sure to both dig. They maybe even help you see the humor that you otherwise may have missed.
