We looked at the films that hit us in the feels with emotions in our last awards. Now it is time to hard pivot to the other side of the spectrum with a look at the films that were a riot of fun. So today, I take a moment to champion those films that brought the joy, whether through upbeat action, one laugh after another, or that silliness that brings a smile to your face.
So without further ado, these films brought fun in 2022. Be warned that there may be slight spoilers for the films in question.
The Nominees Are –
A riot of action and Jake Gyllenhaal going 100 miles an hour and then putting his foot on the accelerator.
Enola Holmes 2
The Enola Holmes films so far have been a fun romp from start to finish, and here is no exception.
The Lost City
This movie is silly to its very core, and it is better for it because everyone is playing along.
Many films have dance battles, but none I have ever seen has had a dance battle as good as this.
She-Hulk Attorney at Law
Many people try meta-narratives and fail. She-Hulk nails it on their first outing.
Ticket to Paradise
When you put George Clooney and Julia Roberts in a film, you know it will be fun, and it was.
The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent
I have experienced films that are a riot from start to finish, but never quite a riot like this.
What if Die Hard was with Santa, and that is a combination that sells itself.
And the Winner is!!!!! – The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent
Directed by – Tom Gormican
Written by – Tom Gormican & Kevin Etten
Nicolas Cage playing a fictional version of himself would have been enough to push this towards the top, but Nicolas Cage is playing a fictional version of himself being counselled by a third imaginary version of himself. Well, that is something special. This film is the personification of chaos, and watching this in a cinema full of people might have been one of the best experiences this year. Add in the absolutely charming Pedro Pascal, and you have a fun time for all.
But before we go, here is the joy that is Naatu Naatu
