No one could ever argue that Jackass Forever’s title doesn’t tell you exactly who it was made for. It’s not really a movie — it’s more like a reality show car crash that you can’t turn away from.
Most of the cast members from Jackass make their return for some truly dangerous and often disgusting stunts. If this is your thing, have at it. But it’s definitely not going to be for everyone.
This lighthearted romantic comedy casts Charlie Day and Jenny Slate as heartbroken strangers whose chance encounter after being dumped leads them to formulate a crazy plan: They’ll each attempt to infiltrate the life of the other’s ex-partner and break up their new relationship.
Silly, edgy, and fueled by the stars’ wonderfully funny chemistry, the film also features some great supporting roles for Gina Rodriguez, Scott Eastwood, and Pete Davidson.
Dave Franco and Alison Brie team up for this romantic comedy that casts Brie as a workaholic television producer who decides to return to her hometown after suffering a professional setback.
The film is directed by Franco and co-written by him and Brie, and has her character reconnecting with her currently engaged first love (Jay Ellis). Their reunion sets off a series of events that has everyone getting in touch with who they are and who they really want to be in life and love.
The perfect blend of mystery and comedy, Jonathan Lynn’s big-screen adaptation of the popular Parker Brothers board game brought an all-star cast together for a classic whodunit story. Seven strangers are invited to a creepy mansion, and when one of them dies, the hijinks begin as the colorful cast of characters attempts to figure out the identity of the murderer in their midst.
Eileen Brennan, Tim Curry, Christopher Lloyd, Madeline Kahn, Martin Mull, Michael McKean, and Lesley Ann Warren lead the cast of the film, which famously features a set of alternate endings that explore the night’s events from different characters’ perspectives.
If you like sassy, era-crossing period content such as Netflix’s Enola Holmes and Apple TV Plus’ Dickinson, then this adventure comedy from Girls‘ Lena Dunham might be perfect for you. Based on the 1994 novel of the same name by Karen Cushman, this passion project for Dunham stars Game of Thrones‘ Bella Ramsay (who also plays Ellie in the hit HBO series The Last of Us series), who became a fan favorite for her depiction of feisty Lyanna Mormont, as the titular Lady Catherine, aka “Birdy,” a teenager in Medieval England.
When her father, Lord Rollo (Andrew Scott), tries to marry her off to a long list of suitors to prevent the family’s financial ruin, Birdy uses her wit and cunning to stave them off in a battle for her independence.
If you’re in need of a fun, fabulous feel-good movie this weekend, this West End stage play-turned-feature film will likely have you not just off the couch, but setting up a runway in your living room. Originally based on Jenny Popplewell’s popular TV movie, Jamie: Drag Queen at 16, this Amazon Original Movie is an adaptation of the stage musical from the same team – director James Butterell, composer Dan Gillespie, and lyricist Tom McRae. Sixteen-year-old Sheffield high schooler Jamie New (Max Harwood) has big dreams of becoming a drag queen.
And while his chosen path is unconventional and even frowned upon by his classmates, his own father (Ralph Ineson), and the locals, Jamie gets nothing but support from his loving mum (Sarah Lancashire), best friend, Pritti (Lauren Patel), and old drag legend Miss Loco Chanelle (Richard E. Grant), who agrees to teach Jamie all he knows about drag. Full of big, bold, and colorful musical numbers (there’s a lot of dancing on desks going on), if Everybody’s Talking About Jamie doesn’t help you shake off the winter funk, you may want to check your pulse.
