Comedy Movies 2010 – Guide


How Do You Know
Starring: Reese Witherspoon, Jack Nicholson, Paul Rudd, Owen Wilson
Director: James L. Brooks
Release Date: 17th December 2010

Best Comedy Movies 2010
Ol’ Jack is back on the big screen for a supporting role in James L. Brooks new comedy-drama. Their previous collaborations, As Good as It Gets and Terms Of Endearment, netted Nicholson two Oscars, but this doesn’t look meaty enough to repeat that success. The story is about a former athlete (Reese Witherspoon) in the middle of a love triangle between a corporate guy in crisis (Paul Rudd) and her current, baseball-playing boyfriend (Owen Wilson). Expect it to be entertaining and well-observed.

Little Fockers
Starring: Ben Stiller, Robert De Niro, Blythe Danner, Teri Polo, Owen Wilson
Director: Paul Weitz
Release Date: 22nd December 2010

Gaylord Focker is now struggling to raise five-year old twins with his wife, the daughter of a retired CIA agent. The screenwriter says it’ll also deal with “themes of death and divorce and all these real things that as we get older, we start to think about, but in a really comical way.” Dustin Hoffman is reportedly out after arguing with the studio over the size of his part and the schedule. Harvey Keitel and Jessica Alba join the cast. Paul Weitz (American Dreamz, About A Boy) takes over from series director Jay Roach.

– PUSHED TO 2011 –

Cast: Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, Seth Rogen (voice), Jason Bateman, Kristen Wiig
Director: Greg Mottola
Release Date: TBC 2011

Best Comedy Movies 2010
Two British sci-fi geeks (Pegg and Frost) go on a road trip through America. On the way, they discover an escaped alien named Paul (voiced by Seth Rogen) near Area 51. As they try to reunite him with his mother ship, they find ‘Paul’ has many more opinions than your typical ET. After previous collaborations you might expect Edgar Wright to be directing this, but instead it’s Greg Mottola (Superbad, Adventureland). How you feel about Paul will depend whether you considered Hot Fuzz a major step down from Shaun Of The Dead.

Your Highness
Starring: Danny McBride, James Franco, Natalie Portman, Zooey Deschanel
Director: David Gordon Green
Release Date: TBC 2011

Danny McBride, James Franco and director David Gordon Green all reunite from Pineapple Express to tell this story of a lazy medieval prince (McBride) who smokes wizard’s weed (hence ‘Your Highness’) until he’s forced to complete a quest to save his father’s kingdom. There will be creature fx. Sounds amazing.

Born To Be A Star
Starring: Nick Swardson, Christina Ricci, Stephen Dorff, Don Johnson, Pauly Shore
Director: Tom Brady
Release Date: TBC 2011

Best Comedy Movies 2010
Co-written by Adam Sandler, this tells the story of a kid from the Midwest (Benchwarmers’s Nick Swardson) who moves out to Hollywood in order to follow in his parents footsteps – and become a porn star. Don Johnson is a washed up porn director. Stephen Dorff is a porn star named Dick Shadow. This is a b-side from Sandler’s production company given to their director who seems to get all the sh*tty jobs (see: Rob Schneider vehicle The Hot Chick, The Comebacks). Don’t expect much.

The Zookeeper
Starring: Kevin James, Rosario Dawson, Sylvester Stallone (voice), Adam Sandler (voice)
Director: Frank Coraci
Release Date: TBC 2011

Zoo animals break their code of silence to help their zookeeper (Kevin James) win back the woman of his dreams. Teaching him their methods of dating and mating will be Sylvester Stallone as a lion, Adam Sandler as a monkey, Jon Favreau as a bear, Cher as a giraffe, and Judd Apatow (?!) as an elephant. From the director behind The Wedding Singer, Click and The Waterboy. Sounds fun …I think.

The Beaver
Cast: Mel Gibson, Jodie Foster
Director: Jodie Foster
Release Date: TBC 2011

Best Comedy Movies 2010
Right now I can’t believe this is a real movie. Jodie Foster’s The Beaver, starring Mel Gibson. ‘Gibson walks around with a puppet of a beaver on his hand and treats it like a living creature.’ – That’s the synopsis. Above is a picture from the set. So far it only has a firm release date for Argentina. Update: Looks like it’s a drama. Needed to be played for laughs.

    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 🙂
