Redbox Best Comedy Movies List March 2018

Redbox Best Comedy Movies March 2018

redbox box

There are not very many titles on this list and here is why.  First off, really funny movies are few and far between, these days.  Hollywood has somehow gotten the idea that they have to make movies with a little bit of everything in it.  They spit out movies with a little bit of story, a little bit of action, some drama, and a sprinkle of comedy, and then they call it a comedy.  They are diluted comedies.  What is the problem with that?  Well, it is usually not very funny or entertaining.  The most recent example of this is Gringo (2018).

I think Redbox has picked up on this, because not only do they have plenty of terrible comedy movies to choose from, they continue to bring back past comedies that were very successful when they were out originally.  Notice how half of these movies came out before 2017?  Notice also how half of these movies have Will Ferrell in them?  Will Ferrell literally accounts for half of the best comedies inside of the box.

Below is my list of the best comedy movies that I have seen that are currently at Redbox.

Redband Trailer for 22 Jump Street (2014)

22 Jump Street (2014)


Without question, 21 Jump Street (2012) was one of the funniest movies of 2012.  The movie was already a reboot of the popular television show from the late 80s and early 90s, 21 Jumpstreet, starring Johnny Depp22 Jump Street is the sequel to the reboot, and it looks like it just might be as funny as its predecessor.

This time, instead of Jenko (Channing Tatum) and Schmidt (Jonah Hill) going undercover as students in high school, they have gone on to infiltrate a college campus undercover as college students.

The movie was directed by Phil Lord and Chris Miller, and the rest of the noteworthy cast includes Ice Cube, Amber Stevens, Jimmy Tatro, Wyatt Russell, Jillian Bell, Dax Flame, and Johnny Pemberton.

I’m sure that we can expect the same raunchy, outrageous, hilariousness as 21 Jump Street.  It should be a laugh filled adventure.

The film is set to release on 06/13/14.





Trailer for Now You See Me (2013)

Now You See Me (2013) (click on the title for my full review)

The movie is about a group of famous magicians turned bank robbers.  It appears that the sleight of hand in the film will mess with your mind and keep you entertained just like real magicians are supposed to do.

The casting is a reunion of sorts.  Jesse Eisenberg and Woody Harrelson are together again for the first time since they were teamed up in Zombieland (2009).  Morgan Freeman and Michael Caine are reunited for the first times since the Dark Knight Trilogy.  The film also has Mark Ruffalo, Isla Fisher, Melanie Laurent, Michael Kelly, Elias Koteas, rapper/actor: Common, and James Franco’s little brother Dave Franco (proved himself in 21 Jump Street (2012).

It looks like a cross between Ocean’s Eleven (2001) and The Prestige (2006).  Looks like it could be missing something, but maybe we will be pleasantly surprised.

13.  The Dictator (2012).  My rating: 8

Note: Hugo (2011), and The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (2011) would have both been on this list, but I didn’t count them because they were filmed in 2011.  That being said, 21 Jump Street and The Dictator would have been knocked off of the list.

I also saw the Dark Knight Trilogy in the theatre on the same night of the tragic theatre shooting.  I was not about to count Batman Begins (2005) or The Dark Knight (2008) as a part of my 2012 list.
