You can't go wrong with a Paul Rudd comedy film, right? He and Judd's real-life wife, Leslie Mann front this title as married couple Pete and Debbie approaching 40 and not enjoying it.

Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy

In our view, one of the best. Will Ferrell leads the way in this hilarious flick that's become one of the greats in recent years. It's laugh-out-loud and so quotable, as well as full to the brim of big names (thanks to many cameos in one epic fight scene). It never gets old.

Esteemed comedians Amy Schumer and Bill Hader leant their talents to Judd's film Trainwreck. Schumer plays Amy Townsend, a young magazine writer who's known for her party-loving and risqué antics. Soon, she meets the more-serious orthopaedic surgeon, Aaron, and is forced to question her ways. The film was well-received and even earned Amy a Golden Globe Award for Best Actress.

Another one of our favourites – this female-led comedy, which Judd produced, leaves us in stitches everytime we watch it. Saturday Night Live veterans Kristen Wiig and Maya Rudolph lead the brilliant cast to tell the story of the trials and tribulations that arise while planning your best pals wedding. Melissa McCarthy and Rose Byrne co-star.
