This is a new Therapeutic Cinema
feature. It promotes the importance of laughter
and humor as essential for a balanced mental state. The movies
listed in other sections of Therapeutic Cinema require the viewer to be willing to have a "thoughtful and
concentrated experience." A Comedy Tonight! asks that you do the opposite.
Just enjoy the movie without trying to assign any deeper meaning.
We all need to laugh. Especially when we’re under stress. Laughter and
humor are essential for a balanced mental state and can facilitate one’s
recovery from painful or difficult experiences and situations. This is not
to say that we should laugh at our loss and misfortunes. As it says in
Ecclesiastics, there is a time to laugh and a time to cry.
