Comedy Movies 2010 – Guide

New: Top 30 Best Comedy Movies, 2010 (List) When the Mayans predicted that 2012 would be the end of the world they also predicted that 2010 would be the funniest year.

So let’s see if that’s correct. Here are the best comedy movies of 2010.

- FEBRUARY -

Cop Out
Starring: Bruce Willis, Tracy Morgan, Seann William Scott
Director: Kevin Smith
Release Date: 26th February 2010

Best Comedy Movies 2010
Formally titled ‘A Couple Of Dicks’ this is director Kevin Smith breaking from his safe zone to direct a Bruce Willis buddy cop comedy from someone else’s script. The plot has two veteran officers (Willis and Tracey Morgan) tracking down a stolen vintage baseball card via the world of gangsters and money laundering. Seann William Scott is involved too, playing some dumbass I’d imagine. Smith has often been criticised for his lack of visual style. It’s nice to see the studio trusted him with this. …Oh wait they made him storyboard the entire movie two months in advance

- MARCH -

Our Family Wedding
Starring: Forest Whitaker, America Ferrera, Carlos Mencia, Regina King
Director: Rick Famuyiwa
Release Date: 12th March 2010

Top 20 Best Comedy Movie, 2010
This clash-of-cultures comedy (African-American vs Latino) sees two overbearing dads (Forest Whitaker, Carlos Mencia) trying to put aside their differences to plan the wedding of their son and daughter. The trailer features much knocking-over-of-the-cake-un-hilarity and fails to get a laugh out of a Mexican goat eating viagra.

Greenberg
Starring: Ben Stiller, Rhys Ifans, Jennifer Jason Leigh
Director: Noah Baumbach
Release Date: 12th March 2010

Best Comedy Films 2010
Roger Greenberg (Ben Stiller) is a New Yorker out of a job and determined to do nothing. He agrees to housesit for his more successful brother in LA to get a free place to stay. Reconnecting with old friends (Rhys Ifans) doesn’t go so well but he soon sparks with his brother’s assistant (Greta Gerwig). This is a subdued Stiller in an indie down-to-earth role similar to those he had early in his career. Director Noah Baumbach made The Squid And The Whale, so don’t expect Dodgeball 2.

Diary Of A Wimpy Kid
Starring: Zachary Gordon, Robert Capron, Steve Zahn, Chloe Moretz
Director: Thor Freudenthal
Release Date: 19th March 2010

Top Comedy Movies 2010
Live-action adaptation of the illustrated novel about a wise-cracking junior high school student. Its story chronicles the adventures of middle school students Greg Heffley (Zachary Gordon) and Rowley Jefferson (Robert Capron) over the course of an academic year, as told through Greg’s diary and hand-drawn cartoons. Judging from the trailer this is basically a big screen version of The Wonder Years. From the director of Hotel For Dogs.


Hot Tub Time Machine
Starring: John Cusack, Rob Corddry, Craig Robinson, Clark Duke, Chevy Chase
Director: Steve Pink
Release Date: 26th March 2010

2010 Comedy Movies List
A group of unsatisfied men return to the ski resort where they once used to party, hop unwittingly into a time-travelling jacuzzi, and get thrown back in time to their younger days in 1986. With a strong marketing campaign, good buzz, and shades of last year’s biggest comedy hit The Hangover, expect this to do well. Chevy Chase plays the Hot Tub maintenance man.

I Love You, Phillip Morris
Starring: Jim Carrey, Ewan McGregor, Leslie Mann
Director: Glenn Ficarra, John Requa
Release Date: 26th March 2010 (UK) / 3rd December 2010 (US)

Latest Comedy Movies 2010
Comedy-drama based on a real life con artist, impostor, and multiple prison escapee. A car accident provokes married man Steven (Jim Carrey) to realise he’s gay and live life to the fullest – even if it means breaking the law. He soon ends up in prison for fraud where he falls for Phillip Morris (Ewan McGregor) and starts dreaming up elaborate cons to reunited them on the outside. The movie has had problems finding a distributor (still doesn’t have one in the UK) thanks to its man-on-man content. A re-edit has apparantly toned down the explicit side of things. The trailer was tonally uneven and it’s hard to say how this will all play with audiences.

    All the good stuff is at the end of the year. ‘Paul’ will definitely be the pick of the bunch. Also ‘How Do You Know?’ ‘Due Date’ and ‘Your Highness’ all sound interesting.

    I’m wary of Paul just because Edgar Wright isn’t on board…it looks like chocolate but could taste like vanilla, if you get my drift. We’ll see.

    Your Highness and Date Knight could be cool.

    These are the ones I am most interested in (couldn’t pick three so I merged the similar ones).
    – Paul
    – Date Night/Dinner for Schmucks/Due Date
    – The Other Guys/Your Highness/Get him to the Greek.
    I tend to either love comedy movies or hate them, there’s not much middle ground. How annoying does the Ashton Kutcher one look!?!

    Due Date, Paul …

    Oh man, have you seen the trailer for Date Night? It’s horrible.

    If Cop Out’s movie title had remained A Couple of Dicks, it would be hilarious-er. Still can’t wait to see it. Also Your Highness should be funny as well as The Other Guys, Date Night and I like the Brits in Paul, yet I realize it may be a disappointment. Knight & Day will be Red Box worthy.

    Why did I say Date Night? You people made me say Date Night!

    Great Article. My money is on Hot Tub Time Machine being 2010’s best comedy movie. That, and The Other Guys is what I’m looking forward to.

    Cop Out really sucks!

    Total waste of money to watch Bruce Willis totally out of his known character working with a mouth, etc. Just no-good in my eyes because I like some,”reality” in any movie I watch.

    I find Willis working with this type of actor is shameful and a total waste of potential enjoyment. Not even a comedy!

    Sorry but true!

    I think the unicorn sketch in Step Brothers is the funniest movie scene of 2010. The whole movie is just great, I could watch it 100 times and still laugh my head off :)
