List RulesAdd your favorite movie to the list if it's missing, but only if it's the correct rating.

Here is the list of PG-13 comedies, ranked from best to worst. These comedies are all rated PG-13, so if you're looking for a more broad look at this genre then check out the Best Comedy Movies of All Time. Also, take a look at which comedies are currently streaming on Netflix and Amazon Prime

Good PG-13 movies have really changed throughout the ages because of how increasingly relaxed film standards have become. PG-13 used to include nudity and at this point it's really just a bunch of funny PG-13 movies or horror movies that were looking to get a more marketable rating. So what goes into a good PG-13 comedy? Well you're pretty much just looking at whether or not it's funny first, of course, then factoring in that it's not really a good movie to watch with family, but something with a little bit of an edge. The funniest PG-13 movies ride the R-rating line very carefully while still just being good PG-13 movies. 

Anyway, this list takes the best PG-13 comedies and pits them against each other to see once and for all what the greatest PG-13 Comedy movie of all time is. This list of popular PG-13 comedies includes information like who directed the film, when it was released, and which actors starred in the movie.
