In a previous article we talked about eight Paul Rudd movies to watch on Netflix. If you’ve had enough of the man (which’d leave me surprised), this time around we’ll be talking about ten amazing Vince Vaughn movies to watch on Netflix. Before we jump right on to the list, let’s learn a little more about the actor.
Vincent Anthony Vaughn is an amazing actor, screenwriter, comedian, and producer. He is known for his iconic comedy roles, his superb comedic counters, and sarcasm.
To this day, Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson are regarded among the best comedic duos out there. Right now with Covid picking up the pace with the second wave ravaging through many countries, let’s take our mind off of that with some light-hearted comedy movies on Netflix.
And the best light-hearted, comedy, feel-good movies to watch would be the ones by Vince Vaughn. As such, here are ten amazing ones to satisfy your boredom!
1. Wedding Crashers
We talked about the iconic duo that is Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn, now this is a movie that put this duo on a pedestal. Wedding Crashers was one of the funniest rom-com of the time. The plot follows two best friends, Jeremy (played by Vince) and John (played by Owen), who have a habit of crashing weddings. They crash weddings acting as a distant relative and have the time of their lives.
They take their game to the next level when they try to hit a huge event, the Secretary Of Treasuries daughter’s wedding. But everything comes tumbling down as one of the friends catches feelings with someone there, which is a rule that should never have been broken.

The story follows a couple that seems to have had an amazing run so far but has hit a rough patch. The rough patch gets rougher as they break up but refuse to leave their flat. Living as roommates the both of them try their best to make the other lose and apologize so that everything can go back to usual, but neither of them is backing down.

3. The Internship
Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn again? How can we not include a movie by the duo. If the duo is in a movie, it makes the list, that is the law.
Just like the Wedding Crashers, the duo brings in their hyped-up “old guy” energy to this movie. The “old guy” part is because, in this movie, the duo is looking for a job and ends up in Google for an internship.
At the internship, they realize they may be a little too old for the job, but the duo isn’t backing down from the challenge. They have to form groups with other young people who have no choice and do their best at the internship to secure a permanent place at the tech giant.

4. Couples Retreat
The perfect Vince Vaughn movie to watch with your significant other. In this adventure, Vince and his wife, along with his other married friends, are roped into going on a vacation.
This “vacation” is just a couple’s therapy in disguise. Only one couple needed the therapy, but due to it being included in the package the others had to get it as well. Which caused problems that they didn’t even know existed in their relationship. From shark attacks to hour-long therapy, the movie has a bit of everything.
