3 TV comedies on Amazon Prime Video you need to watch in May

There’s nothing like a good belly ;augh to get you through a tough day, kick off the weekend, or entertain you during a commute or a flight. Whenever and wherever you want to watch, Amazon Prime Video has some great TV comedies (with the option to download content to watch offline, too!)

The great thing about TV comedies is that the episodes are typically, short so you can watch them during a 20 to 30-minute commute, while doing other tasks like making dinner, or when you only have limited time. There are three TV comedies on Prime Video you need to watch in May, two that will take you back to a simpler time with clever, biting, and even deadpan humor.

If you have to watch one Amazon Prime Video movie in May 2024, stream this one
A man points a gun in Run Lola Run.

Classic film lovers have a lot to enjoy on Amazon Prime Video in May, including some of Alfred Hitchcock's suspense thrillers like Psycho, Rear Window, and Rope. For comedy fans, there's Airplane! and Bottle Rocket, while Chocolat and Cold Mountain should warm the hearts of romance aficionados. Gattaca offers some sci-fi-adjacent drama, while Once Upon A Time In The West is the last great spaghetti western. But if you only watch one Amazon Prime Video movie in May 2024, our pick is the 1998 German thriller Run Lola Run.

Tom Tykwer wrote and directed Run Lola Run, which was considered an experimental film during its initial release. Franka Potente stars a Lola, a woman who only has 20 minutes to save the life of her boyfriend, Manni (Moritz Bleibtreu). And when fate conspires against Lola's efforts, she writes her own fate through sheer force of will. Run Lola Run is only 80 minutes long, but it moves at such a fast pace that you'll hardly notice the time. If you haven't seen Run Lola Run, these are the reasons why it's the movie to stream this month on Amazon Prime Video.
Franka Potente gives a terrific performance

Jake Gyllenhaal in the remake of Road House.

There are always action movies on Amazon Prime Video, just not necessarily the ones you've been looking for. Because of films coming and going, the action lineup can be a little erratic on Prime Video, especially when even flicks like the latest James Bond movie, No To Time Die, don't stick around for long.

One new addition that won't be going anywhere else is Prime Video's remake of Road House. Action lovers will also enjoy Payback, Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, and The Covenant. Those are just a few of the titles on our list of the best action movies on Amazon Prime Video right now. To find the rest, just keep scrolling down.
