Irreverent gems and girl-power comedies are ruling this year

These irreverent gems, humorous dramedies, and girl-power comedies will have you laughing through the new year. Keep checking back—we'll be updating this list throughout 2019.

The Farewell

Director Lulu Wang is a master at balancing rollicking humor with devastating truth in her second film, a tragicomedy about a Chinese family who reunite under a ruse to say goodbye to the matriarch who has cancer. Funny lady Awkwafina stars, and though the comedy dishes brilliant one-liners, it’s her dramatic chops that she really sinks her teeth into. And yes, it will make you wanna hug your grandma.

Stan & Ollie

Squint and you'd never know John C. Reilly and Steve Coogan were costumed up as Oliver Hardy and Stan Laurel, respectively. The pair all but become the two-man comedy troupe in Jon S. Baird's historical comedy, which charts the duo's final tour in 1953.

Fighting with My Family

Stephen Merchant, whom you know as the lanky sidekick of Ricky Gervais, writes and directs this wrestling comedy about a family who shares the same dream: to dominate the ring as legit WWE stars. Dwayne Johnson taps back into his Rock persona for a pretty special cameo, too.

Toy Story 4

We're not crying, you're crying. For Pixar's fourth and final chapter in the Toy Story saga, new characters—Tony Hale's Forky, specifically—shake things up as our favorite pull-string cowboy and his toy-box pals embark on a quest to reunite a toy with its human. Don't forget to take something to soak up the tears: Even Tom Hanks couldn’t get through it without sobbing.

Where'd You Go, Bernadette

Told through a series of letters and email correspondence, Maria Semple’s head-scratching page-turner about a peculiar matriarch who goes missing is getting the big-screen treatment from singular director Richard Linklater. His troubled Bernadette? Played none other than Cate Blanchett.

Zombieland: Double Tap

In 2009, Ruben Fleischer unleashed a zombie comedy—a zom-com, if you will—starring a bunch of A-list actors (Emma Stone, Woody Harrelson) outrunning the undead according to a very technical set of rules (that is, lots of cardio). Almost a decade later, we get a sequel inviting Zoey Deutch to the killer party.

The Addams Family

If it ain't broke, make it animated. Co-directors Greg Tiernan and Conrad Vernon will debut the latest iteration of the Charles Addams' cartoon series later this year, with the likes of Charlize Theron, Oscar Isaac, Chloe Grace Moretz, and Nick Kroll comprising the stacked voice cast.

Jojo Rabbit

Kiwi director Taika Waititi has a way of injecting his signature offbeat style into an array of narratives that are wholeheartedly original. What We Do in the Shadows, Thor: Ragnarok, Boy—these films have zero in common, and yet you know they were directed by Waititi. The same can be said of his latest, a must-see war satire that follow the antics of a little boy and his imaginary friend, Adolf Hitler.

Frozen 2

If we have to build another snowman waiting for Jennifer Lee's sequel, our hands just might fall off. Luckily, Disney announced a release date for when Anna and Elsa will take the screen again. Unluckily, we only have a few hints as to what they'll be doing.

Jumanji: The Next Level

A sleeper hit of summer 2018, Jumanji flipped its script with contemporary themes mixed with humor and a ton of action. Here's hoping its sequel does the same.
