Comedy Movies 2013 – Guide

– APRIL –

Scary Movie 5


Starring: Ashley Tisdale, Simon Rex, Molly Shannon, Anthony Anderson, Kevin Hart
Director: Malcolm D. Lee
Out: 12 April 2013

Best Comedy Movies - List
Horror-spoof about two friends trying out for the lead in a snooty ballet company, one of whom has a controlling mother determined for her to succeed, the other of whom is also being haunted in her new home. Yes, ‘Scary Movie 5’ is mainly a parody of ‘Black Swan’ (doesn’t seem very timely?) and ‘Paranormal Activity’. Previous series leads Anna Faris and Regina Hall are not involved, so they’re calling this a reboot. Lindsay Lohan and Charlie Sheen have small roles. David Zucker, king of the spoof movie (having started it all with ‘Airplane!’), directed the previous two installments but is only co-writing this one. The new director made ‘Undercover Brother’. Don’t get your hopes up. [Critics: 4%] [Public: 3.5] – Avoid

– MAY –

The Hangover Part III


Starring: Zach Galifianakis, Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms, Justin Bartha
Director: Todd Phillips
Out: 24 May 2013

Best Comedy Movies 2013
The wolfpack are back on another misadventure only this time it doesn’t have anything to do with lost memories. Instead the story is about Phil and Stu taking Alan to Las Vegas to cheer him up after his father dies. They are intercepted by a gangster (John Goodman) who kidnaps Doug and orders them to find their old associate Mr. Chow (Ken Jeong), with whom he has a score to settle. Director Todd Phillips returns, but says it’s the last ‘Hangover’ for all of them. It would have seemed a sensible move changing the formula at this stage, it was getting tired and this should have freed up their wild antics. However starting with a funeral and trying to cheer someone up is a bit bleak and they never find the right tone or deliver what fans are looking for. [Critics: 19%] [Public: 5.9] – Mediocre

– JUNE –

The Kings Of Summer


Starring: Nick Robinson, Gabriel Basso, Moises Arias, Nick Offerman
Director: Jordan Vogt-Roberts
Out: 2 June 2013


Coming of age comedy about three teenage friends who, fed up with their irritating parents, decide to spend their summer building a house in the woods and living off the land. The idyllic rule-free lifestyle eventually leads to a test of friendship when a chick gets invited and throws a spanner in the works. Don’t be put off by the flat jokes in the first 10 minutes, this turns into an endearing story with some great comic performances, especially Nick Offerman and oddball kid Biaggio. [Critics: 75%] [Public: 7.2] – Great

The Internship
Starring: Vince Vaughn, Owen Wilson, Rose Byrne, Max Minghella
Director: Shawn Levy
Out: 7 June 2013

Two recently laid-off salesmen in their 40s (Vaughn, Wilson) try to make it as interns at Google, where their managers are 20-somethings. It’s a ‘Wedding Crashers’ cast reunion, including a Will Ferrell cameo. The script was written by Vaughn, who previously co-penned ‘Couples Retreat’. The director made the amusing ‘Date Night’. While the leads still have good chemistry together, the basic premise just isn’t funny, and the whole thing comes off as a PR exercise for Google. [Critics: 36%] [Public: 6.4] – Mixed Reaction

This Is The End
Starring: Seth Rogen, Jay Baruchel, James Franco, Craig Robinson, Jonah Hill
Directors: Evan Goldberg, Seth Rogen
Out: 14 June 2013

comedy-2013-movies-this-is-end.jpg
While attending a party at James Franco’s house, Seth Rogen, Rihanna, Emma Watson and other celebrities encounter the apocalypse. Co-written/co-directed by Seth Rogen (his directorial debut), this began life as a 2007 short, ‘Jay and Seth vs. The Apocalypse’. It has a top drawer comedy cast, a hilarious concept and totally works. Stand-out moments include Michael Cera’s toilet episode, Jonah Hill’s rampage and Paul Rudd stepping on a woman’s head. [Critics: 83%] [Public: 6.8] – Great

The Heat
Starring: Sandra Bullock, Melissa McCarthy, Kaitlin Olson, Michael Rapaport
Director: Paul Feig
Out: 28 June 2013

Best Comedy Movies 2013
An uptight FBI special agent (Bullock) is paired with testy loose-cannon Boston cop (McCarthy) in order to take down a ruthless Russian drug lord. The hitch: neither woman has ever had a partner, or a friend for that matter. The premise is so unoriginal it’s almost refreshing. Comedy buddy-cop movies have been mostly dire in recent years but the difference here is the director of ‘Bridesmaids’. While the movie isn’t a total laugh-riot, the leads have good chemistry and it’s a fun watch. [Critics: 65%] [Public: 6.7] – Good

    Not more Hangovers. And a pre-college Hangover as well. They. Are. Not. Funny. Surely I am not the only person who sees this?

    I think the best comedy movies of 2013 will be Anchorman 2, Hangover 3 and The Heat. 🙂

    Identity Thief was terribly boring. Also Sandra Bullock is not funny, (producing & re-branding herself as a comedy actor) that movie, the Heat, is aimed at middle aged mothers, and whoever enjoyed Bridesmaids, which was funny but typical plot and not enthralling.

    Wow, I thought being a Friday night, I would sit down with my two kids, 9 and 12, and watch Hangover 3, we saw the first two and thought they were funny. Who in their right mind thinks it’s funny that a giraffe loses it head on the freeway? It just goes to show how sick society has become, especially in the USA, where so much violence is except-able, that this can be classed as comedy. With no encouragement from me my two kids did not want to continue watching the movie and I don’t blame them.

      giraffe loses head on the freeway NOT SO FUNNY, waching the hangover serie with 9 and 12 years old kids NOT FUNNY AT ALL, those films are with alcohol, drugs, strippers etc…don’t now if your kids will be affected, but they will sure love that kind of life when they’ll get bigger, as you said bro’ ,, It just goes to show how sick society has become”

    I’ve seen The Heat and it was by far the funniest comedy movie of 2013. The plot is indeed a bit predictable, but the chemistry between Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy makes the movie what it is, funny as hell! Some only think of Sandra as a drama type of actress, but you should remember Miss Congeniality 1&2. I may be delusional and a bit subjective since I looooove Melissa McCarthy and have seen all her movies, but when I was at the cinema, the entire audience was laughing really hard!

    Anyone who has watched every single episode of South Park since their inception….. finds everything else less funny.Trey Parker and Matt Stone are more important to me than ma MAths teacher.

    THIS IS THE END is by far the worst movie, Marco said how the the head getting cut off of a giraffe was wrong wait till you see this sick and disturbing movie, I can’t believe people think it’s funny , a head gets cut off and thrown around , there’s too much blood in the movie, there’s exorcism, and stupidity, who argues about c**ming? They do in this movie, I hated it couldn’t even finish watching, I was trying to watch a comedy not a spooky film, it’s as stupid as scary movie 5
