Spanish movies?

¡Hola! I want to watch Spanish movies, so I can learn the language better. Does anyone know a funny spanish movie? It may also be a comedy.

Do you have any comedies on DVD? If so, they may have a Spanish soundtrack. That's how I watch Spanish movies. I find it helpful if I am already familiar with the story line. It can also be helpful to have subtitles at your disposal (Spanish or English) but to be honest I frequently find them to be more of a distraction than a help.

That's what I have also found. The subtitles (at least for the movie that I was watching) did not match up with the audio -- I believe they were too "formal". So, I'll try again without them.

Me too. I've found the "newer" DVDs I have (2010 -- don't buy any these days) don't even have Spanish options....

There is one titled Canela on Netflix, about a girl and her grandmother who are trying to keep the family restaurant. I watched it before I started Duolingo, so I'll have to watch it again (without English subtitles!).

After five or so replies, the "reply" button disappears.

I did like it. It's very cute (and the food made me hungry). ;)
