Top Ten Movies of 2010

Well, it’s time to roll out the Top Ten lists again. Did the year really go that fast? We’re really pushing against deadline with the hustle and bustle of the holidays, so this list is a little rushed. Here’s our Top Ten movies of 2010.

10. The Tooth Fairy –  Dwayne “The Johnson” Rock,  former Olympic boxer, displays his considerable range playing the tooth fairy in this delightful fantasy. You see, he is just way too big to be the tooth fairy. I mean, look how big he is? He’s just too big! That’s classic.  The children will be enthralled by Mr. Rock’s fairy wings, and the adults will swoon over Mr. Rock’s rippling fairy abs. 

 

 

The destruction of Elsinore castle.

9. MacGruber – SNL Funnyman Will Forte gets serious in this adaptation of the Shakespeare tragedy. Fellow cast member Kristin Wiig portrays Lady MacGruber in a harrowing performance.

8. I Love You Phillip Morris – No, we love you, Jim Carrey, as he shoots for Oscar gold in this hard-hitting look at nicotine addiction. Finally sinking to rock bottom, Carrey meets Ewan MacGruber during a prison stint, and with his loving support, and that gum, he is able to kick the addiction for good. (Ooops, spoiler alert!) Harrowing.

7. Furry Vengeance – That Brendan Fraser is on a roll. Vengeance doesn’t get any furrier than this! Or harrowing.

6. Killers – Katherine Heigl and Ashton Kutcher, two of Hollywood’s most reliable performers, show their considerable range in this delightful farce. Audiences are already familiar with the two leads impeccable chemistry, they’re a modern-day Hepburn and Tracy, but what might surprise viewers is how harrowing this comedy can be.

5. Little Fockers – This series just keeps improving with each harrowing installment. Bring on the next generation of Fuckers..Oops…Fockers!

4. Grown Ups – A harrowing modern look at fat jokes and peeing in the pool from this century’s version of the Algonquin Round Table.

 

3. The Back-Up Plan – J. Lo certainly doesn’t need a back-up plan as she knocks another one out of the park with this rom-com delight. In this one she stretches her considerable range by playing a busy career woman, with a sassy best friend, who cannot find the guy of her dreams. What a premise! Unpredictable hijinks ensue. When is this woman going to make a BAD movie? Knowing her, NEVER!

2. The Bounty Hunter – Über-hunk Gerard Butler, hot off his comic turn in the Sandra Bullock vehicle “The Ugly Truth”,  shows off his considerable range playing a tough guy bounty hunter who would like nothing better than to smack women on their bee-hinds. Lisa Kudrow co-stars.

And For the Best Film of 2010…

 May I have the envelope please…

1. Yogi Bear- The original Yogi Bear cartoons, from Hanna-Barbera studios, are almost universally recognized as among the seminal achievements in animation history. The pathos of Boo-Boo, the Falstaffian charm of Yogi and the tragic futility of Ranger Smith have enthralled us for generations. Could the movie adaptation live up to its storied past? Well, when put in the hands of the team that gave us Wild Hogs, the answer is a resounding, harrowing YES!
