Amazon Prime Video
The Jackass guys might be a little long in the tooth but that doesn’t mean they’re over the hill when it comes to death-defying, disgusting, or downright stupid stunts.
Picking up more than a decade after the last movie, the original jackasses reunite to celebrate the joy of being with your best friends while performing even more mind-bogglingly childish activities in the name of comedy. Plus, some new friends like Machine Gun Kelly help push the envelope even further.
HBO and HBO Max
The classic video game series (and film franchise) gets a modern update in this original film. Unsuccessful MMA fighter Cole Young (Lewis Tan) is used to taking a beating for money, but when Outworld Emperor Shang Tsung (Chin Han) sends Cryomancer Sub-Zero (Joe Taslim) to hunt Cole down, Cole is barely able to escape.
Soon, Cole is led to the temple of Lord Raiden (Tadanobu Asano), an Elder God and the protector of Earthrealm, where he learns that Mortal Kombat, the great tournament of champions to determine dominance over Earthrealm is nigh. Marked to compete, Cole has no choice but to train with Earthrealm’s other warriors as the last defense against an Outworld invasion.
A comedy hit that became big enough to spawn two sequels, The Hangover is a raunchy odyssey to figure out what the heck happened last night. Two days before his wedding, Doug (Justin Bartha) and his buddies Phil (Bradley Cooper) and Stu (Ed Helms) head to Vegas for one blowout evening. But Doug also has to bring along his oddball future brother-in-law, Alan (Zach Galifianakis).
When the three groomsmen wake up the next morning with zero memory of what happened the night before and are unable to find Doug, they discover Alan spiked their drinks in a misguided attempt to add to the fun. Now, the trio must race against time to retrace their steps and find Doug before the wedding.
