There’s nothing new or marvel about cute cuddly talking animals; they’ve been the center of animated feature films since the earliest days of animation. But in ‘The Secret Life of Pets,’ the age old shtick still works.

‘Central Intelligence’ Review: A Perfect Buddy Pair in an Imperfect Buddy Comedy

Like so many nightmare scenarios in modern life, Central Intelligence begins with a Facebook friend request. In high school, Calvin Joyner (Kevin Hart) was voted Most Likely to Succeed. He did not; the day before his 20-year reunion, he’s a low-level accountant. Too embarrassed and frustrated by the way his life has turned out (despite his relatively happy marriage to his high-school girlfriend Maggie, played by Danielle Nicolet), he’s decided to skip the reunion. That’s when the friend request arrives, from someone named Bob Stone. Calvin doesn’t know any Bob Stones, but he reluctantly accepts the friend request anyway. It turns out Bob Stone is actually Robert Weirdicht (say it out loud), who was involved in a horrific bullying incident back in high school.

‘Kevin Hart: What Now?’ Trailer: A Stand-Up Movie With a Twist

I admire anyone who tries to bring something new to a very stale genre or format. The standup movie or special has remained basically the same for decades. The venues change, the material and comedians change, but the general aesthetics don’t; a man or woman and a microphone, a stage, a bunch of cameras, a couple of reaction shots of crowds laughing, and that’s pretty much it.

First announced last year, the remake / reboot of Jumanji based on the classic book-turned-adventure film starring Robin Williams seemed like a baffling idea. What could possibly make the average movie-goer excited about this remake? A great cast, for starters, and it looks like we might get just that as everyone’s new favorite odd comedic coupling are in talks to star in the new Jumanji movie.

In addition to starring in ensemble comedies like Top Five and Think Like a Man, Kevin Hart has made a career out of playing one-half of an unlikely pairing. See also: Get Hard with Will Ferrell, The Wedding Ringer with Josh Gad, the Ride Along movies with Ice Cube and the upcoming action-comedy Central Intelligence with Dwayne Johnson. Hart will continue his streak of Odd Couple comedies with Bryan Cranston in the long-developing remake of the hit French film The Intouchables.

‘Ride Along 2’ Trailer: It’s Time for a Ride Along Road Trip to Miami

The brothers-in-law (get it?!) are back, and this time Ice Cube is taking Kevin Hart down to Miami as Ride Along 2 takes the ride along on a road trip. The first trailer for the sequel has landed, and…this sort of looks like a rehash of the first film. That might not be an entirely bad thing, at least not on the studio level, since the first Ride Along proved to be such a big hit.

‘The Daily Show with Trevor Noah’ Is Exactly What You Thought: The Same Show with a New Face

After the first episode of a new show, especially the first episode of an old show with a new face, everyone is ready to deem it either fantastic or awful. Did Trevor Noah ruin Jon Stewart’s legacy? Is The Daily Show a completely different beast? Should we stop watching now that some random unknown guy is hosting? The answer to all of those is no, or at least, we have no idea yet. But after watching the young South African comedian’s debut in Stewart’s chair on Monday night, it’s refreshing to say he did a pretty good job, and only time will tell how well he can carry the show.
