best comedy movies 2018

The official synopsis reads like so: “After surviving a near fatal knee boarding accident, a disfigured guidance counselor (Wade Wilson) struggles to fulfill his dream of becoming Poughkeepsie’s most celebrated French Bulldog breeder while also learning to cope with an open relationship. Searching to regain his passion for life, as well as a new stuffed unicorn, Wade must battle ninjas, tight assed metal men, and babysit a group stereotypical side characters as he journeys around the world to discover the importance of family, friendship, and creative outlets for his very open-minded sex life. He manages to find a new lust for being a do-gooder, a sparkly Hello Kitty backpack, all while earning the coveted coffee mug title of World’s Best 4th Wall Breaking Superhero”… Take that with a pinch of salt. For certain, directing duties pass to the helmer of ‘John Wick’ and ‘Atomic Blonde’ after the original director had “creative differences” with Reynolds. All the key characters from the original return, including Colossus and Teenage Warhead. After an extensive casting search, Josh Brolin is an unimaginative but decent choice for Cable, the time-travelling cybernetic soldier. Brolin has signed for 4 films, saying this one is really just an introduction. Relative unknown Zazie Beetz will play Domino, a mercenary with the mutant ability to manipulate luck. 15 year old Julian Dennison was hilarious in ‘Hunt for the Wilderpeople’ so should add something here in his undisclosed role. The first ‘Deadpool’ was a massive hit but was actually fairly restrained compared to the surreal hijinks of the comics. This one is already looking more “out there” with a very unorthodox advertising campaign (including a whole trailer of Deadpool impersonating a celebrity painter). It’s the role Ryan Reynolds was born to play. Let’s see if too much self-confidence will spoil the joke. One thing’s for sure, with this director the action is going to be brutal, inventive eye-candy. [Critics: 82%] [Public: 7.9] – Excellent

Action Point
Starring: Johnny Knoxville, Chris Pontius, Aidan Whytock, Leon Clingman, Joe Vaz
Director: Tim Kirkby
Out: June 1, 2018
latest comedy movies 2018

A daredevil (Knoxville) designs and operates his own irresponsible theme park with his friends… Based on the infamous Action Park in New Jersey, where the slides were higher, the rides were faster, and health and safety ignored. Kids loved it, although 6 people died before it closed in 1996. In the tone of ‘Jackass’ and ‘Bad Grandpa’, the movie reunites Knoxville with party boy Chris Pontius. Knoxville did his own stunts, sending himself to the emergency room multiple times. The director has done little of note in a long career, and ‘Action Point’ fails to capture the energy of ‘Jackass’ and ‘Bad Grandpa’. [Critics: 14%] [Public: 5.0] – Avoid

Tag
Starring: Ed Helms, Jeremy Renner, Hannibal Buress, Jake Johnson, Jon Hamm
Director: Jeff Tomsic

Jon Hamm will play an overachiever, both in high school and in life, who is now a successful businessman. While Jake Johnson is playing a pot-smoker who lost the love of his life. Isla Fisher plays Helms’ wife, the organiser of the game. [More Details Soon] [Critics: 55%] [Public: 6.6] – Good

The Spy Who Dumped Me
Starring: Mila Kunis, Kate McKinnon, Justin Theroux, Gillian Anderson
Director: Susanna Fogel
Out: July 6, 2018
best comedy movie 2018

Two best friends (Kunis, McKinnon) embark on an espionage adventure after one of them discovers her unassuming ex is a spy, with a team of deadly assassins on his trail…. Action-comedy. McKinnon is genius in SNL sketches but her overacting was a big reason why Ghostbusters failed. In movies her detached over the top delivery means she struggles to be believable. Kunis meanwhile is perhaps the most overrated and lucky actress around, having been terrible in both dramatic (‘Oz’, ‘Jupiter Ascending’) and comedic roles (‘Bad Moms’, despite box office success). Still they both have potential if they’re directed well and there’s a strong script. The writer-director’s only previous movie, ‘Life Partners’, scored a pretty meh rating. Don’t expect much. [Critics: 49%] [Public: 6.1] – Ok
