decent light hearted stuff
The Personal Life of David Copperfield
The Guard (Cracking performance from Brendan Gleeson, here because you also said "action films", funny film)
Isle of Dogs (Jeff Goldblum, Bill Murray, Edward Norton and Bryan Cranston as the voices of a pack of stray dogs on a mission)
Since The Artist is French (although the only bits of spoken dialogue are in English)... if you don't mind subtitles (or have good French), Delicatessen is a gentle-spirited farce, even if the theme is post-apocalyptic, so a black comedy. It's on Amazon Prime. I would also recommend Le Diner de Cons ("The Dinner Game" is a polite translation, "The Dinner for Moronic Cunts" would be more accurate) as one of the funniest French films ever made but I don't think it's streamed anywhere legal now. Oh, tell a lie, it is on Amazon Prime but you have to go to Amazon.com, not .co.uk, to find it.
Since I've recommended Isle of Dogs, the most accessible film Wes Anderson has ever made and better than Fantastic Mr Fox, cautious recommendation of The Grand Budapest Hotel. Mostly high-paced farce, stand-out performance from Ralph Fiennes, but some people will find it, well, a bit arch. "More accessible than The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou" is for some people a low bar that they won't step over.
