Box Office Battle: ’21 Jump Street’ vs. ‘Casa de mi Padre’ (POLL)
This weekend it’s all about the guys and the comedy in our battle at the box office! Whichever flick you choose to catch, we have a feeling you will be rolling in the aisles.
First up in the battle, we have the action comedy 21 Jump Street starring Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill. The film version is based on the gritty late 1980’s TV series of the same name that starred a young Johnny Depp! The new version gives the old premise a 21st century comedic kick. Tatum and Hill play a pair of underachieving cops who must go undercover as high school students to bust a drug ring.
On the flip side of the battle, we have Casa de mi Padre, the latest comedy starring funny man Will Ferrell! This is the hilarious story of two brothers played by Ferrell and Diego Luna who are trying to save their father’s ranch in Mexico. On their adventure they encounter Mexico’s most feared drug lord played by none other than Gael Garcia Bernal. There is no doubt that the the LOLz will only ensue from there!
One more funny flick of note opening this weekend is Jeff, Who Lives at Home starring Jason Segel. The film revolves around Jeff, played by Segel, who still lives at home with his mom (Susan Sarandon) at age 30. Jeff seems to be doomed to a life of slackery until one day he goes with his brother, played by Ed Helms, as he tracks his wife whom he fears is being unfaithful.
