Comedy Movies 2010 – Guide

– JULY –

Knight & Day
Starring: Tom Cruise, Cameron Diaz, Peter Sarsgaard, Maggie Grace, Paul Dano
Director: Lee Unkrich
Release Date: 2nd July 2010

His Tropic Thunder cameo showed Tom Cruise do comedy, so now with his career still reeling after the Scientology madness, feature comedy seems a sensible direction to try out. Hence Knight & Day, which centers on a lonely woman (Cameron Diaz) whose seemingly harmless blind date suddenly turns her life upside-down when a super spy (Cruise) takes her on a violent worldwide journey to protect a powerful battery that holds the key to an infinite power source. The title sounds like it belongs to an 80s sitcom, but I like the madcap energy of the trailer.

Dinner For Schmucks
Starring: Steve Carell, Paul Rudd, Zach Galifianakis
Director: Jay Roach
Release Date: 23rd July 2010

From the director of Austin Powers and Meet The Parents comes the tale of ‘an extraordinarily stupid man who possesses the ability to ruin the life of anyone who spends more than a few minutes in his company’. It’s a remake of the 1998 France black comedy The Dinner Game, which was about friends finding the most pathetic guests possible for their weekly dinner party.


The Other Guys
Starring: Will Ferrell, Mark Wahlberg, Samuel L. Jackson, Dwayne Johnson, Eva Mendes
Director: Adam McKay
Release Date: 6th August 2010

Ferrell and Wahlberg play NYPD detectives working in the forensic accounting department who rarely see any action. They idolise the city’s top cops (Dwayne Johnson and Samuel L. Jackson), but when an opportunity arises for them to step up, things do not quite go as expected. Previous Adam McKay-directed Ferrell movies Anchorman and Step Brothers worked well and I expect Ferrell’s manchild will play nicely off Wahlberg’s macho aggression.

Lottery Ticket
Starring: Bow Wow, Ice Cube, Brandon T. Jackson, Natari Naughton
Director: Erik White
Release Date: 27th August 2010

Best Comedy Movies 2010
A young man living in the projects (Bow Wow) wins $350 million in a nationwide lottery, then has to survive a three-day weekend after his opportunistic neighbours find out he’s holding the ticket. Yes it’s one of those movies where you’re going to sit in the theater for 2 hours feeling jealous of the main character. It Could Happen To You and Lucky Numbers show that lottery movies are v.forgettable.

    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 🙂
