With the debut of Disney + knocking on the door and a huge collection of Casa do Mickey Mouse officially arriving in Brazilian lands, we’ve identified two types of audiences: those who will spend hours (or days … weeks … ) delved into the catalog to find all the secrets and gems that are certainly hidden around, and those who have no patience for it.
And if you’re in the second group, we’ve got you covered.
So, before you get lost in the massive Disney + catalog, we’ve listed 10 awesome comedies to see (or review) on the service.
* For clarity, the list doesn’t include Pixar animations or Marvel movies – it would be too easy to list comedies with titles from both studios, after all.
Winner of 3 Oscars, A Snare for Roger Rabbit is that movie you’ve probably seen a few times on the late SBT Screen of Success. The hybrid of animation and live-action is the only cross between Walt Disney and Warner Bros. characters to date, and accompanies a detective who becomes the only hope for a cartoon bunny to prove his innocence in a crime.
Another cult classic, Abracadabra accompanies Winifred, Sarah and Mary, three witch sisters who are accidentally resurrected by three teenagers and a cat on Halloween night. The trio must do everything to stop the evil plans of the sisters, who want to absorb the youth to stay alive forever.
Yes, there are three versions of Freaky Friday. If you only know the one from 2003, it’s time to meet the other two: the one from 1976, with Barbara Harris and Jodie Foster, and the one from 2018, a musical starring Cozi Zuehlsdorff and Heidi Blickenstaff.
Operation Cupid (both versions)
If you only know the version of Lindsay Lohan (and her “missing twin”), maybe it would be a good idea to give the 1961 version a chance, starring Hayley Mills as Susan Evers and Sharon McKendrick.
That fucking cat
Described as a “comedy thriller”, the film tells the story of a woman, kidnapped by two bank robbers, when a cat enters the house where they are hiding and decides to ask for help. the cat. From there, several crazy adventures set in motion.
10 things I hate about you
Okay, you’re probably tired of seeing again, but it never hurts, right? Heath Ledger and Julia Stiles are passionate about this passionate romantic comedy based on William Shakespeare.
The fantastic Mr. Fox
With a cast of strong voices including George Clooney, Meryl Streep and Bill Murray and two Oscar nominations, this animation by Wes Anderson tells the story of Senhor Raposo, who after more than a decade of a bucolic life, gives in to instincts and invades neighboring farms to steal chickens. Soon he sees a trio of farmers chasing him.
The Promised Princess
Robin Wright and Cary Elwes star in this classic comedy-fantasy adventure. She’s a farm girl and a handyman.

Phineas and Ferb: Candace against the universe

Watch out for twins
With Bette Midler and Lily Tomlin each playing two characters, it’s a classic baby switch story. The two “couples” were born on the same day and in the same hospital, and ended up being exchanged without anyone noticing. Forty years later, they end up crossing paths in bustling and luxurious New York.
