Comedy Movies 2013 – Guide

– JULY –

Grown Ups 2
Starring: Adam Sandler, Kevin James, Chris Rock, David Spade
Director: Dennis Dugan
Out: 12 July 2013

comedy-2013-movies-grown-ups-2.jpg
Follow up to the 2010 feature about a group of childhood friends who reunite years later. The original cast return, except (apparently) for Rob Schneider – which has prompted rumours of a falling out with Sandler. Steve Austin joins the cast, as does Andy Samberg playing a cheerleader, and Taylor Lautner as an antagonistic frat boy. Patrick (son of Arnie) Schwarzenegger has his first significant on-screen role. This is perhaps the most artistically unnecessary sequel of all time. There are two sharply divided audiences these days – Adam Sandler fans, and non-Adam Sandler fans who see his output as beyond lazy. Luckily for him his fans are still worth a lot at the box office – the original ‘Grown Ups’ had 10% on Rotten Tomatoes, brutal reviews, but made a staggering $162 million in the U.S. alone. [Critics: 7%] [Public: 5.4] – Avoid

– AUGUST –

We’re The Millers
Starring: Jason Sudeikis, Jennifer Aniston, Emma Roberts, Ed Helms
Director: Rawson Marshall Thurber
Out: 7 August 2013

comedy-2013-movies-were-millers.jpg
Road trip comedy about a drug dealer (Sudeikis) who, in order to pay off a debt to his supplier (Helms), is forced to smuggle a shipment of marijuana from Mexico to the US. He devises a scheme to create a fake family known as the Millers with his neighbours (Aniston, Emma Roberts, Will Poulter) posing as his wife and kids to bring back an RV full of weed. The director of ‘Dodgeball’, despite flunking since that movie in 2004, refinds his touch and gets career-best comic performances out of all involved. Sudeikis finally convinces as a leading man in a comedy. It’s ‘National Lampoon’s Vacation’ for the modern generation. Critics were too harsh on it. [Critics: 47%] [Public: 7.1] – Good

Alan Partridge: Alpha Papa
Starring: Steve Coogan, Sean Pertwee, Colm Meaney
Director: Declan Lowney
Out: 7 August 2013 (UK Only)


When famous DJ Alan Partridge’s radio station is taken over by a new media conglomerate, it sets in motion a chain of events which see Alan having to work with the police to defuse a potentially violent siege. Coogan first created the character back in 1991 and it has followed him ever since. As he’s struggled to carve out a place in the movie world it’s surprising it’s taken so long to get to a big screen version. Thankfully this has been made with the same care and attention as the TV series, including bringing back the legendary Armando Iannucci as one of the writers. They also thankfully resisted the temptation to go global with Alan, setting the action almost entirely in Norwich. The director was responsible for ‘Father Ted’. If you’re British, or like British humour, this is a must watch. [Critics: 86%] [Public: 7.0] – Great

The World’s End
Starring: Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, Martin Freeman, Paddy Considine
Director: Edgar Wright
Out: 23 August 2013

best-comedy-movies-2013
Five childhood friends (Pegg, Frost, Freeman, Considine and Eddie Marsan) reunite after 20 years to repeat a legendary pub crawl from their youth, returning to their hometown once again to attempt to reach the fabled pub “The World’s End”. Over the course of the night, they gradually realise the real struggle is not just theirs but humankind’s (courtesy of a robotic invasion), and completing the crawl becomes the least of their worries… The third movie in the “Three Flavours Cornetto Trilogy”, after ‘Shaun Of The Dead’ and ‘Hot Fuzz’. It’s entertaining but light on laughs for long periods due to a particular emphasis on character drama and having Nick Frost as the straight man. How much you enjoy it will largely depend on what you think of Pegg/Frost/Wright beforehand. [Critics: 89%] [Public: 7.0] – Great

– SEPTEMBER –

Hell Baby
Starring: Rob Corddry, Leslie Bibb, Alex Berg
Directors: Robert Ben Garant, Thomas Lennon
Out: 6 September 2013


Horror-comedy about an expectant couple (Corddry, Bibb) who move into the most haunted house in New Orleans. When they realise they have a demonic baby on the way they call in the Vatican’s elite exorcism team. From the comic team behind ‘Reno 911’. Most complain the movie’s too thinly spread with comic material for its running time, but it definitely has its fans. Majority should avoid, but try it if ‘Reno 911’ amuses you. I think it’s underrated.[Critics: 34%] [Public: 4.8] – Mixed Reaction

    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
