    Looking for a laugh this fall? Well, it's not exactly the season for comedies — a mere seven major ones to 38 big-deal dramas — but there are still enough of them to keep us from getting too serious.

    The giggles kick off with an indie romantic comedy that puts a spin on When Harry Met Sally for the friends-with-benefits generation. After that, Nancy Meyers turns an icon (Robert De Niro) into Anne Hathaway's intern. In November, the Peanuts gang gets a CGI update. Then, Seth Rogen, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and Anthony Mackie don their best Christmas (and Chanukah) sweaters in a drug-fueled holiday romp.

    In case none of the aforementioned flicks floats your particular boat of hilarious, there's one gem on the December calendar that's sure to make you smile. It involves Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, and a raucous house party for the ages.

    Intrigued? Click on through to look forward to the funny.

    Sleeping With Other People (September 11)

    Directed by: Leslye Headland

    Starring: Alison Brie, Jason Sudeikis, Adam Scott

    Leslye Headland, the writer-director of the brilliantly acidic 2012 comedy Bachelorette, is back with Sleeping With Other People. Starring Alison Brie and Jason Sudeikis, Headland’s new movie is a romantic comedy of the “can they just be friends” variety, but its smart dialogue and frankness about sex makes it stand apart. Brie and Sudeikis’ characters lost their virginity to each other in college, and then lost touch. They get reacquainted at a sex addicts meeting because he’s become a womanizer who sleeps with almost every woman he meets, and she’s a commitment-phobe/cheater in a debilitating relationship with a married man (Adam Scott, working a villainous looking mustache). They are, obviously, perfect for each other.

    The Intern (September 25)

    Directed by: Nancy Meyers

    Starring: Anne Hathaway, Robert De Niro

    Jules Ostin (Anne Hathaway) is the founder and #girlboss of a rapidly expanding online fashion site. Ben Whittaker (Robert De Niro) is a retired 70-year-old widower who’s bored, and looking for new ways to pass time. Well, he finds one: He becomes a Jules’ intern. As a septuagenarian, Ben is a total fish out of water in Jules’ startup culture, so expect her to show him a thing or two about running the successful empire she’s launched. Sidenote: a movie about a female boss, yes, please! Still, he has quite a few years of boss experience under his belt, and the intern is clearly going to become the teacher when it comes to matters like keeping calm under pressure, work-life balance, and old-school chivalry. Plus, this is a Nancy Meyers movie, so all of those feel-good moments are set against the backdrop of drool-worthy office spaces and apartments. The kitchens alone are worth the price of admission.

    Burnt (October 23)

    Directed by: John Wells

    Starring: Bradley Cooper, Sienna Miller, Emma Thompson

    Adam Jones (Bradley Cooper) is a talented chef working in Paris whose bad behavior — namely his problem with drugs and narcissism — has ruined his career. But, he’s going to clean up his act, man. To London he goes! His mission: Open a restaurant, get a third Michelin star, and reclaim his dignity. Easy!

    Emma Thompson (who plays Dr. Rosshilde, a therapist who works with Cooper after he cleans up his act) is always a win. Alicia Vikander continues her reign over American cinema. If there’s at least one scene in which Cooper transforms into Gordon Ramsay-meets-Swedish Chef, we are so there.

    The Peanuts Movie (November 6)

    Directed by: Steve Martino

    Starring: Noah Schnapp, Mariel Sheets, Venus Schultheis, Bill Melendez

    "Wah wah wah wah wah wah wah wah wah." Just kidding! But, if you’re a Peanuts fan, you get the joke and are probably already sold on this CGI update featuring the classic comic strip gang. In The Peanuts Movie, Charlie Brown tries to reinvent himself as a winner — the type of person who can kick the football — when the Little Red-Haired Girl moves into town.

    The Night Before (November 25)

    Directed by: Jonathan Levine

    Starring: Seth Rogen, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Lizzy Caplan, Anthony Mackie

    It’s the night before Christmas, and in New York City, three childhood friends (Seth Rogen, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Anthony Mackie) meet up for a reunion that’s more sloppy than pretty. It’s the end of an era for these three wise bros, and that, of course, means Miley Cyrus cameos. With 50/50’s Jonathan Levine in the director’s chair, maybe this drug-fueled flick will become the bros' new go-to holiday classic.
