Birds of Prey (And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn)

A follow up to DC Comics Suicide Squad, this blockbuster film is centered around Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie) and her fight for emancipation from the Joker. Between the gritty fights, all in brawls and absurd hilarity,  there is something for everyone in this action-packed comedy.

Top End Wedding

This Aussie rom-com centres around a young couple (Miranda Tapsell and Gwilym Lee), and their quest to get married. Add in a cross-country mum-hunt and jaw-dropping views across the Northern Territory, you're sure to fall in love with this local hit.

It's Complicated

A loved modern classic starring Hollywood heavyweights Meryl Streep, Alec Baldwin and Steve Martin, you can expect amazing things from this film. The movie follows Jane Adler's (Meryl Streep) secret affair with her remarried ex-husband (Alec Baldwin), and how she navigates this tricky situation all the while falling in love with her architect (Steve Martin).

This is Where I Leave You

This dramedy deals with grief, relationships and family history in a thoughtful and humourous way. After the death of their father, four grown siblings return to their childhood home and live under the same roof with their emotionally-open and eccentric mother. Add in partners, over-sharing, exes, family secrets and sibling rivalry and you get a complex and lovable commentary on real life.

School of Rock

This heartwarming comedy about a failing musician disguising as a substitute teacher is a must-watch. Jack Black is in the lead role and plays the overly enthusiastic faux-teacher that turns his stuffy, Private School classroom into a rock music studio. You can expect lots of laughs and heroic guitar solos.


A debaucherous scavenger hunt, too much booze, and a ruined wedding dress; what could possibly go wrong? Bachelorette follows a group of bridesmaids navigating their way through the wedding weekend. Starring Kirsten Dunst, Rebel Wilson, Isla Fisher and Lizzy Caplan, it will only take 10 minutes for you to start laughing.

Eurovision Song Contest: The Story of Fire Saga

Having Eurovision 2020 FOMO? Lucky for you funnyman Will Ferrell and OG rom-com queen Rachel McAdams have teamed up to tell the story of faux Swedish rock band Fire Saga, and their journey to Eurovision fame. Definitely not the usual brand of comedy you know Ferrell for, and we're here for it!

Crazy Rich Asians

Based off the Kevin Kwan book of the same name, Crazy Rich Asians transports the audience into the world of Singapore's obscenely rich. From private islands and investment properties, to designer labels and million-dollar parties, you will be dazzled by the opulent surrounds and the unlikely love story.

Crazy Stupid Love

When Cal, played by Steve Carrell, finds out his wife (Julianne Moore) wants a divorce, drama and hilarity ensues. With help from his newfound friend Jacob (Ryan Gosling), Cal gets back on the dating scene and learns a lot about family, life and love.

Ferris Bueller's Day off

A cult classic from legendary director John Hughes, Ferris Bueller's Day Off is so much more than just some kid ditching school. Expect hilarity, action and a killer soundtrack to match. 

Happy Gilmore

An iconic Adam Sandler flick, Happy Gilmore tells the tale of a failed hockey player determined to make big money on the PGA golf tour, to help his grandmother. If you know Sandler, you know the movie will be the right amount of crude and silly.

Horrible Bosses

What could possibly go wrong when three friends band together to get rid of their respective bosses? Hint: it is hilarious. Better still, if you can't get enough of Horrible Bosses, you can also watch the sequel on Netflix.

Hot Fuzz

When overachieving London Police Officer Nicholas Angel (Simon Pegg) is transferred to a sleepy village, strange things start to happen. So strange in fact, that it makes him think there is something sinister going on.

How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days

Exactly as the title suggests, ambitious journalist Andie (Kate Hudson) is tasked with writing an article on how to drive a man away in under 10 days. Unbeknownst to her, the man she chooses (Matthew McConaughey) has another idea.

Lady Bird

This dramedy follows Christine "Lady Bird" McPherson (Saoirse Ronan) as she navigates the highs and lows of her high school senior year. Be prepared for big dreams, and even bigger romance.

Step Brothers

When it comes to comedy duos, there are none greater than Will Ferrell and John C Reilly; think Talladega Nightsand Holmes and Watson. The actors play middle-aged step brothers that live at home, and the movie follows their parent's attempts to get them out of the house. The one-liners are legendary and the Catalina Wine Mixer is not to be missed.
