I would have to say Tommy Boy is Chris Farley's best work even though he did 3 other great movies before he died Black Sheep, Beverly Hills Ninja, and Almost Heros. Chris Farley and David Spade were the best comedic team ever, if you ask me. After Tommy (Chris Farley) barely graduates from college, he returns home to the midwest where his father, the owner of an auto parts factory, immediately employs his dumber than dumb son. While Tommy was away at school, his father had fallen in love with a beautiful woman and now desires to marry her. During the wedding ceremony, however, Tommy's dad tragically dies from a heart attack, which puts the company's -- and its 300 employees' -- future at stake. It is up to Tommy to use any available intelligence to keep his father's factory from going under. This road comedy uses the seriously comedic chemistry between the late Farley and his SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE buddy David Spade to brilliant effect.
This is one of Adam Sandler's best movies and my favorite. In this movie, for those of you who don't know, Adam Sandler plays Happy Gilmore a wanna be hockey player that is actually good at golf, a sport he has never played. He doesn't like golf, but he plays it anyway to make money so he can buy his grandma's house back from the IRS.
Night at the Roxbury
This is probably the best Saturday Night Live (SNL) movie. Chris Kattan and Will Ferrell have done sketches about these many a time on SNL. Niether one of them are on the cast of SNL anymore so i hope they do more movies like this.
This is the story of three guys in their early 30's, Mitch (Wilson), Frank (Ferrell), and Beanie (Vaughn), who try to relive their old college glory days by moving into a large house near their old campus. They inadvertently form an "unofficial fraternity", where students can enjoy all the riches of the partying lifestyle without the commitment that comes with having to abide by the university's fraternity rules. Soon, however, the realities of their past lives catches up with their wild college lifestyles. Will Ferrell is awesome in the roll of Frank "The Tank".
Chris Farley stars as Mike Donnelly, the doltish younger brother of a gubernatorial candidate. Mike can't seem to stay out of trouble, thus potentially endangering his brother's chance at winning the election, so campaign aide Steve Dodds (David Spade) is assigned to chaperone him until the election is over. Not realizing that he is biting off more than he can chew, Steve takes Mike to the wilderness of Washington state, where the two men are ill-equipped to deal with the difficulties that nature throws their way. Penelope Spheeris (WAYNE'S WORLD) directs this slapstick comedy, which reunites the successful team from 1995's TOMMY BOY. This movie is not as good as Tommy Boy, but it's still hilarious and I still love it.
In order to gain control of his family's billion dollar business, Billy (Adam Sandler) must win a bet that he can go through grades 1-12 again in 6 months. The fact that he's a hopeless goof who failed all these grades the first time doesn't help. This is one of the funniest movies of all time, but for some reason I still like Happy Gilmore more. Maybe it's because I saw Happy Gilmore first.
Austin Powers (all)
Mike Myers plays Austin Powers in the Austin Powers Trilogy plus many other characters in the movie. Austin Powers is a parody of all the James Bond and other spy movies. Mike Myers also plays Dr. Evil, Fat Bastard, and Goldmember in the movies. My favorite character would have to be Dr. Evil because he is an idiot and still thinks he can take over the world with his clone Mini Me. Seth Green is also in this movie and I like him.
Rush Hour (all)
When I first saw Rush Hour that is pretty much when I really started liking Jackie Chan. In the first Rush Hour the FBI assigns rogue LAPD detective James Carter (Chris Tucker) to the case because they are unwilling to have their investigation hampered by a meddling outsider (Jackie Chan). Seizing the opportunity as a chance to impress the FBI and ultimately join the Bureau, Carter enthusiastically accepts -- until he discovers that his mission is to "baby-sit" Lee and keep him away from the case at any cost. Carter, who is as arrogant and fast-talking as he is street smart, covertly embarks on a one-man crusade to solve the case. Of course, he must first distract Inspector Lee. Eventually the two become friends and thus Rush Hour 2.
Okay this was a tough choise for one of my favorite movies because I like all Jim Carrey movies about the same. Cable Guy and Liar Liar were pretty close but Liar Liar came out on top as you can see. There is not much to say about this movie except it is really good and if you like a funny funny movie you would probably enjoy this one.
South Park: Bigger, Longer, and Uncut
Considering i have a South Park page you should have known this movie was going to be on here. If you like the show you will love this movie because all the stuff the can't get away with on the show the do in the movie. I can't think of anything bad about this movie except that Kenny dies, but what do you expect in South Park he always dies.
Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back
I think this is Kevin Smith's best movie. He also did Clerks, Mallrats, Chasing Amy, and Dogma, but those aren't as good. Smith plays Silent Bob and directes and writes and all that kind of stuff, I'm not sure what all he does. There is also a Clerks Animated Series that you can get it on DVD or you can see it on Comedy Central.
I like all the Jackie Chan movies that are in english and some translated ones, but I think these are great. I even think Shanghai Knights might be better than the first one, Shanghai Noon. But it is a close call. In the Shanghai movies Jackie Chan playes an Imperial Guard Chong Wang who comes to America and he meets a wanna-be cowboy/thief (Owen Wilson) who he doesn't trust, but they work together anyway.
Darren Silverman, Wayne Le Fessier and J.D. McNugent have been best friends since the fifth grade. From grade school (when they were all picked on), to high school (when Wayne played on the football squad, J.D. was the team's mascot and Darren was its star cheerleader), to today (rocking side by side in "Diamonds in the Rough", their Neil Diamond cover band), these guys have always stuck together. Now, enter Judith, a great-looking but cold-hearted and manipulative psychiatrist who digs her claws into sweet-natured Darren, snatches him from the friendship and even breaks up the band. First, J.D. and Wayne attempt to distract Darren by reuniting him with his high school love, Sandy, who in only a short time plans to take her religious vows and become a nun. But the stranglehold Judith has on Darren is too strong. In a desperate and hilarious last-ditch attempt to save their friend from Judith's grip - and after receiving some ill-advised help from their take-no-prisoners high school football coach - Wayne and J.D. kidnap Judith and fake her death, leaving Darren free to fall for Sandy. Judith, however, doesn't stay down for long. Demonstrating cunning and kick-ass karate moves that leave her captors in the dust, Judith escapes and pulls Darren back under her control. But just before the contentious couple takes their wedding vows, a hero arrives in an unexpected form - Neil Diamond, who is recruited by J.D. and Wayne to help save the day. This movie is awesome trust me. Have I every steered you wrong in the past?
I like this movie because of Jack Black, but it isn't the best movie. When ever his newest movie comes out i will probably change this. But Orange County is cool and really funny. This and Saving Silvermen are his best movies, but since I own Orange County and not the other one I put it on here. Envy is Jack Black's next movie, also starring Ben Stiller.
Blade is Wesley Snipes best movie and probably one of the greatest action movies of all time. In these movie Blade has to stop vampires from taking over the world, but he is also a vampire. But Blade is special because he was born as a vampire, so I guess you could say he has the best of both worlds. He is a vampire except that the stuff that kills other vampires doesn't effect him such as sun light and things like that.
Die Hard (all)
The first Die Hard takes place in a building. The second takes place in an airport. And the third takes place in all of New York City. Die Hard is probably one of the first Bruce Willis movies I ever saw and still one of the best. The third one is good because of Samuel L. Jackson, but it is nothing like the first two. I hope that Die Hard 4 comes out soon.
Lethal Weapon (all)
There are 4 Lethal Weapon movies and I enjoy them all. These movies are funny plus Mel Gibson is a great actor. The 1st one came out in 1987 and throughout the series of films Mel Gibson plays an emotionally off-balanced undercover cop. His partner, Danny Glover, is good valued family man. The two opposite personalities become embroiled in a series of tense and exciting situations.
Dude, Where's My Car?
This is a good old fashion dumb movie, thats why I like it. Jess and Chester wake up one morning after a night of partying and the nightmare begins: Their stash is gone, Jesse's car is gone, their girlfriends - the twins - are mad and the boys can't remember anything from the night before. They set out on a whirlwind journey to figure out what happened. As Jesse and Chester retrace their steps they discover that the night before they had- and lost - a suitcase full of cash, they met a gorgeous gender-challenged stripper and six sexy alien women, and now they are caught up in the middle of an intergalactic war with the fate of the universe in their hands!
Beverly Hills Cop (all)
Eddie Murphy rose to stardom as Axel Foley in 3 Beverly Hills Cop movies, a streetwise and brash young Detroit cop in this comic blockbusters that combined frenetic action, hysterical rough-edged comedy, and a chart-topping rock & roll soundtrack. The resulting culture shock is only one of his difficulties: Often operating just outside the law in his determination to capture the murderer, he finds himself repeatedly clashing with the local authorities as well as his supervisor back home. With the help of Beverly Hills detective Billy Rosewood and his partner, Sergeant Taggart, Axel can do anything.
Vin Diesel stars as former extreme sports athlete Xander "XXX" Cage, notorious for his death defying public stunts. Betting he can succeed where other conventional spies have failed, Xander is recruited by NSA Agent Gibbons (Samuel L. Jackson) to become a completely different kind of undercover agent. Enlisted for a dangerous covert mission, he must use all his extreme skills to combat a clever, organized, and ruthless enemy far beyond the scope of his experience.
Ace Ventura (all)
Picking up the scent of missing pets, Ace Ventura gumshoes his way through an obstacle course of absurdity in this theatrically successful comedy. First off he has to save the Miami Dolphins mascot a Dolphin, then in the sequel he travels to Africa where he has to save a sacred bat. Did I mention the only animal he hates are bats. Both of these movies are extremely funny and they made me laugh a lot.
It is an ordinary summer day. But then, without warning, something very extraordinary happens. Enormous shadows fall across the land. Strange atmospheric phenomena, ominous and mesmerizing, surface around the globe. All eyes turn upward. The question of whether we're alone in the universe has finally been answered. And, in a matter of minutes, the lives of every person across the globe are forever changed. With the fate of our planet at stake, the Fourth of July is about to take on an entirely new meaning. No longer will it be an American holiday. It will be known as the day the entire world fought back. The day we did not go gentle into the good night... The day all of us on planet Earth celebrated our independence day.
Inspired by the too-ludicrous-to-be-believed National Football League strike of 1987, Howard Deutch's THE REPLACEMENTS follows a team of scab players as they fill in for the real pros. Jimmy McGinty (Gene Hackman), a compassionate and dedicated coach, is rehired by the owner of the Washington Sentinels to pull together a new crew in order to finish off the season and keep the stadium filled. This includes a safety who is on work release, a lightning-quick wide receiver with bricks for hands, a deranged linebacker-SWAT team member, a chain-smoking Welsh kicker, and Shane Falco (Keanu Reeves), a former college quarterback who lost his chance at the big time after a disastrous Sugar Bowl appearance. The newly formed squad must learn to set aside its differences if it is to win three out of four games and make it to the playoffs. Along the way, Falco finds himself harassed by the Sentinels star quarterback, Eddie Martel, as well as falling in love with the team's head cheerleader, Annabelle (Brooke Langton). A final showdown against the strike-breaking reigning champions gives McGinty and Falco one last chance at redemption. Deutch's lighthearted comedy is greatly aided by Hackman and Reevess surprisingly sincere performances.
Meet the Parents
In Meet the Parents, everything that could possibly go wrong for groom-to-be Greg Focker does. The problems begin with Greg's disastrous first meeting with his girlfriend's family-most notably her intimidating father Jack Byrnes-and it's all downhill from there.
The Whole Nine Yards
Nicholas "Oz" Oseransky is a nice dentist living in suburban Montreal. His new next door neighbor, Jimmy "The Tulip" Tudeski, is a hit man hiding out from a dangerous Chicago crime family. Despite their differences, Oz and Jimmy have one thing in common: someone's trying to kill them both. For Jimmy, avoiding a couple of hired killers is child's play. But for Oz, it's a whole new ball game. To stay alive, they're going to have to stick together - Jimmy with his cunning and cold-blooded accuracy and Oz with his dental tools.
Writer/Director M. Night Shyamalan follows up THE SIXTH SENSE and UNBREAKABLE with his new feature film, SIGNS, a thriller set in Bucks County, Pennsylvania focusing on the mysterious appearance of a five-hundred-foot design of circles and lines carved into a family's crops. Mel Gibson stars as Graham Hess, the family patriarch, who is tested in his journey to find the truth behind the unfolding mystery. Joaquin Phoenix is Merrill Hess, brother to Graham and a former minor league baseball star. These is a great movie and I usually only like comedies so you know this must be good.
Behind Enemy Lines
A Navy pilot (Owen Wilson) is shot down over enemy territory and struggles to survive the relentless pursuit of a ruthless secret police enforcer, a deadly tracker, and countless hostile troops. With time running out, the injured pilot's commanding officer (Gene Hackman) goes against orders to carry out a desperate rescue mission.
In this adaptation of the long-running Marvel comic "The Incredible Hulk," research scientist Dr. Bruce Banner's (Eric Bana) failed experiments cause him to mutate into a monstrously powerful and savage green-skinned behemoth whenever he loses control of his emotions. Jennifer Connelly plays his love interest Betty Ross, Nick Nolte plays Bruce's dangerous father, and Sam Elliott plays Betty's father, the tough-as-nails General Thaddeus "Thunderbolt" Ross. Many people say this is a bad movie, but I liked it and I don't know why. Maybe I liked it because I just always like the Hulk, maybe everyone else just doesn't understand how good of a movie this really is. I don't know the answer, but you should see this movie if you havn't already.
Twenty thousand years ago, the Earth was being overrun by glaciers, and creatures everywhere were fleeing the onslaught of the new Ice Age. In this time of peril, we meet the weirdest herd of any Age: a fast talking but dim sloth named Sid (voiced by John Leguizamo); a moody woolly mammoth named Manny (voiced by Ray Romano); a devilish saber-toothed tiger named Diego (Denis Leary); and an acorn-crazy saber-toothed squirrel known as Scrat. This quartet of misfits unexpectedly, and reluctantly, comes together in a quest to return a human infant to his father. Braving boiling lava pits, treacherous ice caves, freezing temperatures and a secret, evil plot, these "sub-zeros" become the world's first heroes! I love Ray Romano so of course I would like this movie, but it is a good movie.
Cradle 2 the Grave
When an international criminal (Dacascos) kidnaps the daughter of a gang leader (DMX) as part of a diamond heist, it causes a city's police to engage in an intensive search (led by a government agent played by Li), aided by the father's gangsters. This movie is good because there is a lot of action and it has a lot of comedy at times.
