Contagion

In one of Damon’s most hilarious roles to date, we watch America’s funniest actor deal with the death of his wife, and the slow death of the world around him. Nonstop laughs as he fears for his daughter’s life with the world crumbling to pieces. Worth watching again as you probably laughed so hard you missed a few jokes.
