You just have to have a zombie movie on the list. This comedy/horror features Jesse Eisenberg and Woody Harelson teaming up on a road trip to Ohio to find Columbus’s (Eisenberg) family. Enjoy the wild ride, laughs, and a little gore in this wildly entertaining road trip film. The Cadillac Escalade is also a great touch.
One of the reasons for the success of this movie is, without a doubt, the cast. The chemistry between them came so naturally and effortlessly. It feels as if the two had known each other for years and just happened to be on the same screen simultaneously.
In this infamous mockumentary, Sasha Baron Cohen stars as Borat Sagdiyev, a journalist from Kazakhstan who is tasked with traveling to America to document life there. It takes a lot to remain completely serious while winding up and even shocking gullible public members, but Sacha Baron Cohen is perfect for this role – as demonstrated by this cringe-inducing journey across America.
The movie became a huge hit worldwide and turned Borat into an international star the viewers couldn't get enough of. The movie followed the huge hit "The Ali G Show," which was launched in the UK in 2000 and first introduced Borat to the world.
This heist movie, aptly named "Tower Heist," is set in the ever-exciting New York City. It stars two comedy kings, Ben Stiller, and Eddie Murphy, and features parades and turkeys! It's good old family fun. You'll also love their amazing co-stars, Gabourey Sidibe, Alan Alda, and Matthew Broderick.
The great Alan Alda plays a Ponzi scheme crook who gets placed under house arrest for stealing $2 billion. Of course, that's where Murphy and Stiller come in with a sneaky plan. Besides the fact that most people enjoy comedies that involve crime, the cast and the action in the movie made it so successful.
The Family Stone
Even if you're not a fan of the typical American rom-com, "The Family Stone" is one of those movies you'll never regret watching. Why? Because it's a witty comedy-drama with great performances by some of Hollywood's finest.
With a cast that includes Diane Keaton, Rachel McAdams, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Craig T. Nelson, this film paints a perfect picture of what family holidays are really like — a gathering of sometimes unlikable characters with whom we have a love/hate relationship. Expect witty dialogue, hilarious scenes, and a tear-jerking performance by Keaton, who plays the matriarch of the family.
This isn't your typical warm and fuzzy Christmas movie, and that's exactly what makes it great. "Bad Santa" is a black comedy about two con men (played by Billy Bob Thornton and Tony Cox), that reunite once a year for a holiday scheme. The actors seem like the perfect cast for the film, as Thornton plays the heavy-drinking Willie Soke, a thief disguised as a mall Santa, and Cox plays his sneaky elf assistant.
This dark comedy takes an unexpected turn when Thornton starts to get close with an outsider kid and his mother (played by Lauren Graham), forming an oddball makeshift family. This is one Christmas film that has it all, and with the comedy genius of Bernie Mac and John Ritter, film director Terry Zwigoff is sure to keep you glued to the screen for the whole hour and a half.
