A bodyguard and a private investigator have to cooperate to find a missing girl — a case that turns out to become the crime of the century. Both have their own methods, and both get into lots of trouble thanks to those. Great cast, that ’70s vibe, and a stylish soundtrack.

Plump and awkward Susan seems the least likely CIA agent. However, when the world is in danger, no one but her can save the day. Melissa McCarthy, Jason Statham, and Jude Law are particularly awesome in this hilarious spy action flick parody.

Dennis Doyle, anything but athletic, must run the London Marathon. He must, for he wants to get back the love and respect of Libby, the woman he abandoned on their wedding day….pregnant! This would’ve been awfully sad if it wasn’t so hilariously done.

A lost cell phone leads Diane to an encounter with an incredible man: Alexandre. He’s smart, tireless, and unbelievably charming. He has a wonderful sense of humor and seems to have no drawbacks…except for one: he’s just over three feet tall. A movie full of ludicrous situations and purely French humor.

Just Go With It

Danny meets Palmer and tells her about his nonexistent wife and the hardships of family life to impress her. Now Palmer is dying to meet his wife, and that makes Danny ask his colleague Katherine and her kids to play his family for a little while. A kind and light comedy.

Hot Fuzz

A series of murders makes him believe this place isn’t as safe as it seems. British killer jokes and the hilarious coupling of Simon Pegg and Nick Frost won’t let you get bored.

The Proposal

The Hangover

A movie about a crazy stag night. The heroes go so far that the night becomes literally unforgettable: they have to reconstruct the events of it in the morning or else they’ll never find out why one of them has a missing tooth…and where the heck has the bridegroom gone?
