Comedy: Recently Added
1-10 of 22

An entertaining comedy that makes people laugh and feel good. Now that is what I call something special.

There is something that is nice about a movie that knows what it is and does not take itself too seriously. The Hangover is one of these films. Here is a picture that does not strive for greatness- it just wants to make you laugh. There is absolutely nothing wrong with that. Doug (Justin Bartha) is getting married in two days to Tracy (Sasha ...

Brüno

Genre: Comedy

The main problem with BRUNO is that this mockumentary isn’t as realistic or believable as BORAT.

I watched the R rated version on DVD – the version that had been prohibited in Australian cinemas. I wish I hadn’t. I was flashed a good 30 second screen shot of Sacha Baron Cohen’s penis shouting “Bruno” and I’m still recovering from the post traumatic stress of that frightful vision. The main problem with BRUNO is that this mockumentary isn’t as ...

It many ways I suppose The 40 Year-Old Virgin is the birth of the bromantic comedy.

Shaun Henisey picks the Top 25 films of the decade. To view his other picks, click here. 25. The 40 Year-Old Virgin It many ways I suppose The 40 Year-Old Virgin is the birth of the bromantic comedy. There have been numerous rip off's of this formula (vulgar with a heart) over the last several years, but there are none that exhibit the spirit and ...

A good try at Christmas humour but somehow it is lacking true mirth and good cheer.

Christmas draws nigh again and on its tail is a trail of Hollywood movie offerings released to lighten the pockets of holiday viewers. I missed the release of FOUR CHRISTMASES last year, but it has arrived on DVD this year on Santa’s sleigh. For some reason a lot of Christmas movies feature dysfunctional people in dysfunctional families, and ...

It's one full of witty lines that'll keep you smiling most of the time.

AWAY WE GO, by acclaimed director Sam Mendes, is his most different movie. All of his other pictures (REVOLUTIONARY ROAD, JARHEAD, ROAD TO PERDITION and AMERICAN BEAUTY) are in-your-face, big films, full of very dramatic moments. They have their funny bits, but their underlying tone is always dark and foreboding. In a complete change of pace for ...

I found the characters very annoying and too angry for my liking.

If I had to pick a movie about shopping mall security to watch it would not be OBSERVE AND REPORT. Starring two likeable comic actors, Seth Rogen and Anna Faris (who I thought was hilarious in THE HOUSE BUNNY), I was particularly disappointed with the final outcome. Like PAUL BLART: MALL COP – the other popular mall security movie of 2009 – the ...

One of the silliest attempts at movie humour to hit our screen.

I’m not sure where to begin with this movie. Frankly, I’m almost at a loss for words after viewing LAND OF THE LOST (2009) and being bombarded with images of one of the silliest attempts at movie humour to hit our screen. I should have seen this coming, after all it stars Will Ferrel, but even this is considered pretty low in the long list of ...

Alan Rickman gives another wonderful droll performance.

If you are expecting a road movie, mixed in with wine and melodrama, BOTTLE SHOCK is not another SIDEWAYS. Wine and the California Nappa Valley are probably the only things these movies have in common. BOTTLE SHOCK is set in 1976 during a period of time when the emerging wine industry of California was trying to find an identity for itself, and ...

Be ready to groan loudly through most of the film's first scenes.

In GHOSTS OF GIRLFRIENDS PAST, Connor Mead (Matthew McConaughey) is forced to see ghosts. This reimagining of A CHRISTMAS CAROL is mainly set in a beautifully snowy season that looks for all intents and purposes like Christmas, but the film is being released in May, which feels weirdly incongruous. The Christmas connection continues, however, ...

Fling

Genre: Comedy

A great movie that will entertain.

Fling (2008) is also known as Lie to Me abroad and explores the alternative lifestyle of an open relationship. Samantha (Courtney Ford) and Mason (Steve Sandvoss) are both successful in their work and on the outside appear to be in a loving relationship; and they are. They laugh, go out, live together, and have a strong bond unlike many couples. A...
