Full disclosure I loved the first one and this trailer review is going to be super biased. The trailer is hysterical and I love the way it simply tells a little of the story rather than giving away spoilers. I know what it’s about and want to see it and they did that without me even seeing the villain or anything more than a few very brief scenes. We clearly still get that weird rap music that somehow totally works in this film. Steve Carell is back to play Gru and Kristen Wiig should be great. We also get Al Pacino playing the main villain which obviously should be really fun in this type of film. Below are the newest trailer and my favourite scenes, so please comment at the end.

This film is a bit of a weird one, as it is supposed to be a comedy but ends up being mainly a drama. So in that respect it’s a hard one to review, so I will class this as a drama with a romance twist. But as for the comedy, it’s not funny and don’t expect much Steve Carell magic. The relationship between Penny and Dodge though is quite nice so it’s not a total right off.

Now just to state that originally I had a list of 38 comedy films and then had to cut it down to just 10 films, so I know people will be asking why their favourite film isn’t on here and believe me it was hard to cut 28 of my favourite comedy films off the list. But the films on the list are the best of the best and deserve your laughs.

Surprisingly funny and realistic, certainly a great watch and a good example of a comedy film with real actors being used to their strengths. At forty something, straight-laced Cal Weaver (Steve Carell) is living the dream-good job, nice house, great kids and marriage to his high school sweetheart. But when Cal learns that his wife, Emily (Julianne Moore), has cheated on him and wants a divorce, his “perfect” life quickly unravels. Worse, in today’s single world, Cal, who hasn’t dated in decades, stands out as the epitome of un-smooth. Tim’s Film Reviews Recommended.
