Comedy Movies 2010 – Guide


Date Night
Starring: Steve Carell, Tina Fey, Mark Wahlberg, Ray Liotta, James Franco, Mila Kunis
Director: Shawn Levy
Release Date: 9th April 2010

Best New Comedy Movies 2010
Claire and Phil Foster (Steve Carell and Tina Fey) are a bored suburban couple. Even their “date nights” of dinner and a movie have become routine. To reignite the marital spark, they visit a trendy Manhattan bistro, where a dangerous case of mistaken identity hurtles them through the city into non-stop adventure. From the director of Night At The Museum, Date Night has assembled just about the most ‘in’ comedy ensemble you can get, so expect something decent.

Death At A Funeral
Starring: Chris Rock, Martin Lawrence, Tracy Morgan, Zoe Saldana
Director: Neil LaBute
Release Date: 16th April 2010

So here they’re remaking an English language movie, that was shot in Britain by an American director, had several American actors in it (including Peter Dinklage, who’s in the remake too) and had a release in the US just 3 years ago. Where it flopped. The only thing all that different in the remake is it’s being aimed squarely at an African-American audience. And it’s directed by the guy who did The Wicker Man remake. Bizarre. Anyway, it’s about shenanigans at a funeral.

Starring: Will Forte, Kristen Wiig, Val Kilmer, Ryan Phillippe, Jason Bateman
Director: Jorma Taccone
Release Date: 23rd April 2010

Recurring sketch on SNL ‘MacGruber’ is a MacGyver spoof that sees Will Forte trying to defuse a ticking bomb while being distracted by personal issues. The movie version has done well to cast Ryan Philippe (what happened to his career?) and Val Kilmer as the villain. But the record of SNL cinema is extremely patchy. The creator of MacGyver is kicking up a legal fuss as he feels he’s being cheated out of a payday. But it’ll take more than that to stop MaaacGruuubberrr.

– JUNE –

Starring: Katherine Heigl, Ashton Kutcher, Catherine O’Hara, Tom Selleck
Director: Robert Luketic
Release Date: 4th June 2010

Best Comedy Movies - List.jpg
From the director of The Ugly Truth, 21 and Monster In Law comes this action-comedy-thriller. Ashton Kutcher stars as an annoying hitman at the top of his game who falls for an annoying computer tech (Heigl) and decides to quit his job. Years later, he finds out that there’s a hit out on him, forcing him and his wife to run. Tom Selleck plays Katherine Heigl’s dad. Sources are unable to confirm if he will have a moustache.

Get Him To The Greek
Starring: Jonah Hill, Russell Brand, Rose Byrne, Sean Combs, Elisabeth Moss
Director: Nicholas Stoller
Release Date: 4th June 2010

Russell Brand reprises his role as Aldous Snow from Forgetting Sarah Marshall in this story of a record company intern (Jonah Hill) with two days to drag an uncooperative rock legend to Hollywood for a comeback concert. It’s a spin-off, and is directed by the man behind Forgetting Sarah Marshall, but Jonah Hill is not reprising his role from that movie. Make sense? No.

Grown Ups
Starring: Adam Sandler, Kevin James, Chris Rock, Rob Schneider, and David Spade
Director: Dennis Dugan
Release Date: 25th June 2010

Adam Sandler has got the whole Happy Madison crew together for this ensemble comedy about five childhood friends / basketball teammates who reunite to honour their late coach at the lake house where they spent their younger days. Now they’re middle-aged, and have wives and kids in tow. All the jokes in the trailer have been done before. For Sandler fans only.

    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!

    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 🙂
