Comedy

his-girl-friday

"His Girl Friday" (1940)

Despite some clunkiness in the story, "His Girl Friday" is still fun, fast, and holds up.

dr-goldfoot-and-the-bikini-machine

"Dr. Goldfoot and the Bikini Machine" (1965)

"Dr. Goldfoot" may not technically be a good movie, but it's a fun movie which is good enough.

monkey-business-marxbros

"Monkey Business" (1931)

The Marx Brothers in one of their better movies create mayhem one a cruise ship with the help of Thelma Todd and a couple of gangsters.

charade1

"Charade" (1963)

"Charade" (1963) has been called the greatest Hitchcock movie that Hitchcock didn't make. I don't know if it quite lives up to that high praise, but it's a fun watch.

the-january-man

"The January Man" (1989)

"The January Man" is a mediocre thriller with a great cast. It's worth watching just so you can wonder how it wasn't better.

the-comedy-of-terrors

"The Comedy Of Terrors" (1964)

A horror comedy starring some of the heavyweights of classic horror is a can't miss. A great family movie for the Halloween season, or any season really.

the-wrecking-crew

"The Wrecking Crew" (1968): Fun Product of Its Time

Dean Martin plays Matt Helm, a secret agent that makes James Bond look like a teetotalling prude. Sharon Tate plays his sexy and clumsy sidekick.

the-protagonist-of-the-the-video-dead-is-too-busy-chasing-girls-to-fight-zombies

The Protagonist of "The Video Dead" Is a (Literal) Fool for Love

“The Video Dead” may be a comedy, but it's difficult to believe that the ridiculous dialogue and impractical scenarios were all deliberately contrived. Still, the film is mindless, nostalgic fun--as long as you don't think too hard.

"Vengeance": Screen Zealots Film Review

The film has a terrific premise that’s mostly well-executed, even if suffers from a general smugness.

legally-blonde-review-analysis

Movie Review & Analysis: “Legally Blonde” (2001)

Having been released in 2001, the movie “Legally Blonde” was ahead of its time. 20+ years later, it still holds up. Elle Woods is charming as the lead. The way she embraces her femininity in a rigorous environment leads to many powerful messages.

house-2017-movie-review

"The House" (2017): Movie Review

"The House" is a comedy that aired in 2017, written and directed by Andrew Jay Cohen, and starring Will Ferrell. An interesting movie about parents who succumb to bad influence, but it's not for the faint-hearted.

fantasia-popran-review

Fantasia 2022: "Popran" Review

A selfish man wakes up one morning to find out that his genitals have literally flown out the window. Now in a race against time, he must retrieve them before he loses them forever. Popran is an absurd comedy that is never quite able to properly capitalize on its crazy concept.

marcel-the-shell-with-shoes-on-2022-review-a-heartwarming-stop-motion-animated-delight

"Marcel the Shell with Shoes On (2022)" Review: A Heartwarming, Stop-Motion Animated Delight

The naive perspective of a tiny, talking shell is extraordinarily heartwarming and Marcel the Shell with Shoes On is one of the year's sweetest and funniest films.

brian-and-charles-2022-review-cinematic-naivety-at-its-finest

"Brian and Charles" (2022) Review: Cinematic Naivety At Its Finest

"Brian and Charles" has to be a contender for the year's most feel-good comedy. Its humor is subtle, but its heart is gigantic. The film is a wholesome adventure that is suitable for the whole family.

max-keebles-big-move-2001-the-anti-capitalist-anarchist-movie-for-kids

Anarchism in Cinema: Anti-Capitalism and Corrupted Authority in "Max Keeble's Big Move" (2001)

Bullies that represent capitalism and the police. A principal who oppresses his students to further his political career. An uprising of tyrannized students to overthrow the powers that be. "Max Keeble's Big Move" is NOT your average family film.

fantasia-frank-and-zed-review

Fantasia 2021: "Frank & Zed" Review

Jesse Blanchard's wonderfully violent, hilarious, and heartwarming puppet horror comedy is gloriously entertaining and worth seeking out if you ever have the opportunity. Easily one of my favorites from Fantasia 2021.

mandibles-2021-review-an-unfunny-and-aimless-comedy

"Mandibles" (2021) Review: An Unfunny and Aimless Comedy

The ninth film from Quentin Dupieux, the French filmmaker behind other odd cinematic outings such as "Rubber," "Wrong," and "Deerskin." "Mandibles" attempts to be a quirky comedy, but is mostly just a waste of time.

"Space Jam: A New Legacy": A Decent and Fair Game

"Space Jam: A New Legacy" is a sequel to the 1996 live-action/animated "Space Jam." Though familiar and "controversial," the movie is entertaining.

Underrated Gems That Are Not Talked About Enough: "Seeking a Friend for the End of the World"

Steve Carell and Keira Knightley tackle the end of the world while trying to get to the people they love. Although this is not a gut-busting comedy, it has a unique story with interesting characters that will leave you inspired, sad, and lonely.

"Coming to America" (1988): A Funny Fairytale Movie Review

"Coming to America" is a true '80s comedy classic that I've loved since I was a kid. It stars one of my absolute favorite comedic stars of all time. Seeing how its sequel has come out on Amazon Prime, it feels like now is the perfect time to take a look back at the original!

"Tom & Jerry" (2021): A Passable Yet Improved Feat of the Hanna-Barbera Duo

"Tom & Jerry" is a 2021 live-action/animated hybrid film based on the Hanna-Barbera characters of the same name. While it pays respect to the source material with inventive animation and decent laughs, it falls standard with an unoriginal story, basic characters, and questionable direction.

"Scooby-Doo" (2002): Scooby's First and Frail Live-Action Flick

"Scooby-Doo" is a 2002 live-action/CGI movie based on the long-running Scooby-Doo franchise. While satirically ambitious with a decent cast, the movie is flawed with a confusing tone, uncanny visual effects, and jokes that range from lazy to uncomfortable for family movie standards.

"Joe Versus the Volcano": A Quirky Fable About Presentism

Joe Versus the Volcano is an interesting but far from perfect movie about acquiescence. Surrender to what is. Only water in disguise.

'Hubie Halloween' (2020) A Sandler-rific Movie Review

Sandler supposedly vowed to make the worst movie of all time if he was snubbed at the Oscars for his performance in 'Uncut Gems'... This definitely isn't the worst movie of all time, or even the worst of his filmography, but he seems to be trying to do terribly again.

"Elvira: Mistress of the Dark" (1988) Film Review

Elvira: Mistress of the Dark is a 1988 comedy film directed by James Signorelli. It is the famous horror host's first time starring in her own feature movie, which is kind of meta when you think about it. This is my review of this film.
