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.

– AUGUST –

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.

    The “Diary of a Wimpy Kid Movie” was excellent!
    This is funny, great film entertainment that beats out all of the “A” lister films. This movie was a great reminder of what it was like back in Jr. High School, and adults will remember and enjoy this movie as well as middle schoolers and high schoolers.

    Found myself laughing out loud in the theater and again at home with the rental. If you like fun, entertainment with a great storyline and excellent acting, especailly by the star of the movie Zachary Gordon (who plays the main character), go see this movie or rent it…you won’t be disappointed.

    This movie is really enjoyable entertainment…..

    Seriously, most of these movies suck. Death At a Funeral was ok, and I did like Date Night, but all the others were stupid. Ok, maybe not Jackass 3-D. I thought a really funny one was the Hangover, and Vampires Suck. Those were way funnier than these lame movies!

      Hi Angeline, I’m not sure to be honest. Was it shown on TV or in theaters?

    Can’t say I’ve been overly impressed this year, although Hot Tub Time Machine was actually a lot better than expected. Still I guess I will eventually get around to Date Night, Cop Out, Dinner for Schmucks and Get Him to the Greek. I’m not expecting to be awed by any of them.

    “Getting to the Greek” is the funniest movie that I remember seeing in recent history. Every line was so well delivered and thought-out that my husband and I rarely laughed, because we didn’t want to miss a single line. We even re-played the parts that we talked over 😀

    P.S – Russ is the same character in Forgetting Sarah Marshall – just check out imdb. They just don’t reference the other movie, which would detract from this film

    So I saw Get him to the Greek last weekend. Really disappointed. Where were all the jokes? It took itself way to seriously. All the relationship crap and battle with drugs was just depressing 🙁

      I had the same experience with In Bruges last night, thought it would be much funnier, ended up being pretty sad and depressing. Trailer made it look much lighter.
