How is this a thing? Three Funny Hitler Movies

Read Time:2 Minute, 42 Second

Funny Hitler movies are a genre no one wants to admit they like. Yet there are at least three award-winning, lovable, and thoroughly enjoyable films that take a satiric look at Hitler over time, and make the humor work.

Let’s take a look at how this weird phenomena somehow stole our hearts, even as recently last year with 2019’s award-winning JoJo Rabbit.

JoJo Rabbit (2019) —

We’ve reviewed this really top notch film here before, and it’s up for awards for 2019. Every actor really worked, even though you’d think you’d seen this kind of Jew-In-the-Wall story before. It’s a fun time that will make you cry only once, thankfully. It tells a fantastic story with wit and whimsy and heart. Scarlet should get noticed for her supporting role, but the real breakout moments lie with Roman Griffin Davis as the ten year old wanna-be Nazi-Youth, and his best imaginary friend Hitler, delightfully realized by Director/Actor Taika Waititi (remember how Waititi single-handledly re-wrote/saved Thor in Ragnarok?).

The Producers — (1968 and 2011)

In-Universe play:  (Springtime for Hitler)

Intended as a terrible play, Springtime for Hitler is the in-universe concept behind a theatrical version intentioned to be so bad the producers could blame the awfulness on the playwright, and get off rich/scot-free selling a lousy production as they run away with the upfront money. However, the play is unintentionally actually a hit. Cue the humor. There are several film/broadway Production versions to attest to the success of this satirical formula.

This is a great app. I wish more people would support it

This app provides info about movies, reviews, ratings from people who have seen it before and after viewing. It has links to info about the movies. It let’s you know when there will be a lull in the action and how long it will last. If you want to know what happens during that time, you can check the brief synopsis (you have to click a link, so no accidental spoilers). It has a timer you can set (silent) to alert you to a break. It also tells you whether there is anything extra during or after the credits. It’s really a wonderful app. I’ve subscribed for a couple of years to support the developers, but I noticed some of the links to provide feedback didn’t seem to work today. They also made it free, with voluntary donations to see the pee-times. If you haven’t tried it, I encourage you to do so, and subscribe if you like it. I really hope the app is supported so it can continue to be maintained!

Developers note: RunPee doesn’t make much money but it supports itself nicely. Donations are appreciated, but not required. We’ll add as many movies to the database as we can until there are no more movie theaters.

To Be or Not to be (Mel Brooks) —

In-universe play: Hitler On Ice

I remember laughing a lot at this Mel Brooks comedy, where a family of Jews is hidden by a German comedy troupe that seems pro-Hitler unless you’re smart enough to catch that their play is a satire. It’s a hoot. After all, Hitler only wants PEACE: A little piece of Hungary and a little piece of France….

Honorable Mentions:

Captain America: The First Avenger (2011)

Captain American’s first outing shows his character ‘beating up Hitler’ in the adaptation of his comic book story to the MCU film. Steve Rogers yearns to do something more real than punching fake Hitlers. He gets his wish (as fans know), but the America v Hitler element is played off as an in-universe historical joke. It’s not really funny, but it’s an important nod to Cap’s comic origins.

Life is Beautiful (1997)

This isn’t actually a comedy or satire… But a lot of people love the gentle spirit and ultimate ‘happy’ message in this popular Italian film about concentration camps in WW2 (I realize that isn’t a normal thing to say). Personally, I don’t walk away from this movie smiling. It captures a great message though: how you feel about life is more important than how you suffer, even in the worst of conditions. Life is Beautiful is not a joyous film no matter how you slice it. It’s a well-told lifetime favorite that for some people never grows old.
