Comedy Movies 2011 – Guide

Arthur
Out: 8 April 2011
Director: Jason Winer
Starring: Russell Brand, Helen Mirren, Jennifer Garner, Greta Gerwig

2011-comedy-movies-arthur.jpg
A drunken playboy stands to lose a wealthy inheritance when he falls for a woman his family doesn’t like. Remake of the ’81 Dudley Moore getting-drunk comedy. Oddly Helen Mirren will be playing the John Gielgud role, as Arthur’s ‘butler’. The director’s best known for TV series ‘American Family’, the screenwriter wrote ‘Borat’/'Bruno’/'Alan Partridge’. Not sure Hollywood can do a comedy about a drunk any more, it’s too un-PC, hopefully it won’t spend half the movie apologising for it. [Critics: 26%] [Public: 5.7/10] = {Ranked: 8th Worst}

- MAY -

Hobo With A Shotgun
Starring: Rutger Hauer, Brian Downey, Gregory Smith
Director: Jason Eisener
Release Date: 6th May 2011

Best Comedy Movies 2011
A homeless man (Rutger Hauer) arrived in a crime-ridden city and turns vigilante, blowing away crooked cops, pedo’ Santas, and other scumbags with his trusty pump-action shotgun. Based on the winning fake trailer in the international contest to promote Grindhouse in 2007. Today, the actual trailer isn’t nearly as funny as the fake one, however this is sure to make for cult viewing. Can’t believe they actually made this movie. [Critics: 66%] [Public: 6.3/10] = {Ranked: 10th Best}

Bridesmaids
Out: 13 May 2011
Starring: Kristen Wiig, Rose Byrne, Maya Rudolph, Melissa McCarthy
Director: Paul Feig

Best Comedy Movies - List
Two feuding bridesmaids (Kristen Wiig & Rose Byrne) battle over how to plan their friend’s wedding. Unlike ‘Bride Wars’, this isn’t sappy or girly girly. Reviews are enthusiastic, comparing it to a female The Hangover. Produced by Judd Apatow and directed by Paul Feig, who last worked together on ‘Freaks And Geeks’. Kristin Wiig is one of the best comedy actresses around, she co-wrote this, and it’s her highest profile movie role to date – which is a good thing. [Critics: 90%] [Public: 7.0] = {Ranked: 2nd Best}

The Hangover Part II
Out: 26 May 2011
Director: Todd Phillips
Starring: Bradley Cooper, Zach Galifianakis, Ed Helms, Justin Bartha, Ken Jeong

Best Comedy Movies 2011.jpg
The gang are heading to Thailand for dentist Stu’s wedding. It’s rumoured that the plot somehow involves his accidental involvement with a Thai ladyboy. The first movie deserved its success, working as both a laugh out loud comedy and fun, unpredictable mystery. In order to keep the original characters in this one (including the Korean gangster), and have the scenario repeat itself, expect unlikely coincidence to be pushed well beyond where it was in the first movie. [Critics: 35%] [Public: 6.6/10] = {Ranked: 13th Best}


- JUNE -

Submarine
Starring: Craig Roberts, Yasmin Paige, Sally Hawkins, Noah Taylor, Paddy Considine
Director: Richard Ayoade (TV’s The IT Crowd)
Release Date: 3rd June 2011

[Critics: 87%] [Public: 7.3/10] = {Ranked: 5th Best}

Bad Teacher
Starring: Cameron Diaz, Justin Timberlake, Jason Segel, Lucy Punch
Director: Jake Kasdan
Release Date: 17th June 2011

comedy-2011-movies-bad-teacher.jpg
Follows a hilarious foul-mouthed, money hungry teacher (Diaz) who, after being dumped by her sugar daddy, begins to woo a colleague (Timberlake) – a move that pits her against a well-loved teacher (Punch). Jason Segal plays Diaz’s roommate. Director Jake Kasdan has a pretty good track record of amusing, slightly subversive films – Zero Effect, Orange County, Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story. The problem will likely be Diaz who has to play an off the wall badgirl and carry a comedy movie, can you remember the last time she made you laugh out loud?

      It’s a sci-fi comedy horror, set in a British council estate where aliens have landed and a local ‘gang’ of youths have to fend them off. It’s had great reviews.
