We just watched The Lobster last night. We loved it.
It's dystopian, but not set in the future, really, so not dystopian in a sci-fi way, so you might like it. It's full of a lot of absurdity, which we really enjoy.
The basic premise is: marriage/relationships are what the society is all about. If you become single through divorce or death, you're sent to a hotel with others in your same situation. You have 45 days to pair up, or you're turned into an animal of your choosing.
The thing is, coupling must be based on some defining characteristic that you have in common, and these are completely banal, like two people with crooked teeth can couple, or two people who like shoes can couple.
There are a couple of scenes CF'ers might like; for example (no spoilers), the hotel manager is explaining to a couple who've decided to join up that they'll be given a trial period where they'll be monitored, but not to worry if they initially argue or have compatibility issues. She explains, "If that's the case, we'll assign you a child. That usually helps."
There're no real "jokes" per se, but just sly little things here and there that are funny.
