‘Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa,’ often known as ‘Bad Grandpa,’ is a Jeff Tremaine-directed hidden camera comedy film that follows a grandfather and his grandson on an epic road journey full with hysterical misadventures. Through the many pranks and stunts that are a feature of the Jackass franchise, it creates a loosely linear storyline.

‘Borat’ is likely the most well-known film in the hidden camera comedy subgenre, and it stands up to all of the buzz surrounding it. Larry Charles directed the film, which follows Sacha Baron Cohen’s titular character as he interviews real individuals across America for his documentary.

The satirical humor in the film is also a step forward from the nearly absurdist humor in ‘Bad Trip.’ In the end, if you liked ‘Bad Trip,’ you should surely watch ‘Borat’ to see the hidden camera comedy genre at its best.
Dude, Where’s My Car?
‘Dude, Where’s My Car?’ is a stoner comedy film about Jesse and Chester, two best friends who lose Jesse’s car after getting stoned. The key protagonists’ tight friendship is a recurring theme in both this film and ‘Bad Trip.’ The narrative of both flicks revolves around a missing car, and it’s funny to watch Jesse and Chester fumble around town trying to track down their follies from the night before. It has developed cult status over time, making it a must-see for comedy enthusiasts.
‘Due Date’ is a dark comedy film directed by Todd Phillips about Peter Highman, a prominent architect who is compelled to catch a ride from Atlanta to Los Angeles with wannabe actor Ethan Tremblay to be with his wife, Sarah, for the birth of their kid.
