21 Jump street Franchise

21 Jump Street (2012)

21 Jump Street (2012) After the comedy movie based on the 1970s TV show Starsky And Hutch , this is an effort in a similar vein. There is even a cameo appearance by the stars of the original 1980s TV show (Johnny Depp - Magnificent Beasts 2 ).

Schmidt (Jonah Hill - ) and Jenko (Channing Tatum - GI Joe ) went to High School together in 2005. Instead of going to college they end up as cops, and get recruited to an undercover unit led by Captain Dickson (Ice Cube - XXX2: The Next Level ). He sends them undercover as High School kids to find a drug dealer. They end up hanging out with High Schoolers like Molly Tracey ( Brie Larson ) and Eric Molson (Dave Franco - Warm Bodies ).

Although this parodies cop movies in general, and the original TV show in particular, a lot of the comedy comes from the fish-out-of-water scenario. The two protagonists were at High School themselves only seven years before their undercover assignment, and yet so much seems to have changed in that time. The easy-going life of the early Noughties has already been replaced by a tight-assed attitude of Political Correctness that has since pervaded society.

22 Jump Street (2014)

22 Jump Street (2014) Schmidt (Jonah Hill - ) and Jenko (Channing Tatum - GI Joe ) try to bust a drug dealer named The Ghost (Peter Stormare - Armageddon ). When they fail, in hilariously spectacular fashion, they are sent back to Captain Dickson (Ice Cube - XXX2: The Next Level ) in his new HQ at 22 Jump Street. He sends them to college, investigating another drugs ring. The students there include Mercedes ( Jillian Bell ).

Once again, Schmidt is the one to get a love interest. His previous girlfriend, Molly Tracey ( Brie Larson ), does not even get a mention. However, this particular pairing has an important role in the storyline. Meanwhile, Janko befriends a football jock and they have a strangely faux-gay relationship filled with double entendres.

The end credits sequence runs through a massive number of sequel setups, each more ridiculous than the previous one. It even includes ideas for merchandising adverts and a spin-off kids cartoon show. Yes, this successfully mocks the infinite-sequel franchises, while illustrating why this series will not become a trilogy. There is also an after-credits sequence with a couple of characters from the first movie.

Crocodile Dundee Franchise

Crocodile Dundee (1986)

Crocodile Dundee (1986) Sue ( Linda Koslowski ), an American journalist, who visits the Australian Outback. She meets a crocodile hunter, Mick Dundee (Paul Hogan - ), a white man who was raised by Aboriginal people. This carefully skirts around the old cliches of cultural appropriation and white saviourism, while allowing David Gulipil ( Walkabout ) a joke which subverts the audience's expectations. Mick even turns out to be an early Environmentalist of sorts, chasing off a gang of drunken louts who are destroying the flora and fauna.

Sue's trip through the Outback has left her so intrigued with Mick that she takes him back to New York City with her. This is the setting of the Second Act - the old-fashioned fish-out-of-water humour which plays on the rural man's poor understanding of the hi-tech modern world. After all, Mick lives in a virtual wilderness and he finds himself catapulted into the biggest and busiest city in the world - a human ant-hive.

Mick's folksy home-spun wisdom holds up well in the big city. This movie is best known for the that's not a knife scene, but there are several other scenes that illustrate how much crime there still was in Manhattan after the 1970s.

The film is not really a thriller, and the main storyline is Mick's relationship with Sue. It turns out that she is engaged to marry an annoying man, and Mick has to convince her to marry him instead.

Crocodile Dundee 2 (1988)

Crocodile Dundee 2 (1988) Mick Dundee (Paul Hogan - ) and Sue ( Linda Koslowski ) are now living together in New York City. He gets a job delivering mysterious packages for local badass Leroy Brown (Charles Dutton - Alien 3 ).

Sue's ex-husband, an American photo-journalist, is in Colombia working for the local DEA chief (Kenneth Walsh - Twin Peaks ). He takes some photos of drug kingpin shooting someone, but because it is the 1980s he has to snail-mail the film cannister to the USA. Then he is written out, like Steve Guttenberg in The Boys From Brazil.

The drug kingpin and his thugs, including Luiz Guzman ( The Bone Collector ), go to New York to retrieve the film. In the first movie, Mick took on street-level criminals - now he has to take out some well-armed hit-men.

To hide out, Mick takes Sue to his place in the Australian Outback. Yes, this movie reverses the journey of the first film. It also re-uses some of the original film's humour, specifically the outsiders' racist assumption that the Aboriginal Australians are primitives and cannibals.

So why did this film do so poorly compared to the original blockbuster? Well, the humour was pretty played-out so this one concentrated on the thriller plot. By the standards of the day, this was pretty generic. Remember, James Bond took on a Latin American drug lord in Licence to Kill the next year - and his own franchise went on hiatus for six years. Small wonder that the next Crocodile Dundee movie took a decade to appear.

The Excellent Mr. Dundee (2020)

The Excellent Mr. Dundee (2020) This is a meta story about Paul Hogan ( ), now a frail-looking old man who has retired from show-business. Well, he was already in his forties when he first played Mick Dundee thirty-five years ago. Unfortunately, the world will not let him move on from his most famous role.

A group of young film-makers pitch a new idea for the Dundee franchise, which steals an idea from Hogan's cowboy comedy Lightning Jack . When Hogan points out that a couple of blonde-haired blue-eyed people are unlikely to have a son who looks like Will Smith ( Bad Boys For Life ) he is publicly called a racist. Yes, in the most modern trope he is a victim of cancel culture. Because this is a comedy, everything he does in order to redeem himself actually makes things hilariously worse. He has to hang out with other edgy old white men, like John Cleese ( Life of Brian ) and the oscar-winner Chevy Chase ( ).

Just as the original movie had the delightfully innocent Mick Dundee find his way through the complexities of life in 1980s New York City, now Hogan has to cope with the realities of the new world. The result is a film that both tugs at the heart-strings and tickles the funny-bone at the same time.

Horrible Bosses Franchise

Horrible Bosses (2011)

Horrible Bosses (2011) This is the story of three interchangeable forty-year-old white men who have middle-class jobs in Big City USA. They all have one other thing in common - they hate their jobs and they hate their bosses. They eventually work out their solution ... they must assassinate their employers!

The protagonists are bland, but the title characters make this movie memorable. Colin Farrell ( Daredevil ) and Kevin Spacey ( Superman Returns ) both played super-villains before, but the real stand-out is Jennifer Anniston as a manipulative sex addict.

The protagonists go looking for a professional crook to help them. They eventually recruit Muthafukka Jones (Jamie Foxx - Daredevil ), the token black guy of the movie. Yes, an oscar-winning actor gets relegated to a measly supporting role.

Of course, this is too good to be true.

When things go bad, the trio seek advice from Kevin Spacey ( Superman Returns ). Yes, for some reason they are still on speaking terms with the villain from the first film. Meanwhile, the guy from Pacific Rim is still being pursued by Jennifer Aniston . The third supporting character from the first movie, Muthafukka Jones (Jamie Foxx - Stealth ), gets dragged into the plot as well.

The trio embark on a kidnapping plan. Predictably it all goes badly wrong for them, and ends up in an exciting climax.

Johnny English (2003) Someone steals the British Crown Jewels. The British Secret Service calls in their best man, Johnny English (Rowan Atkinson - Never Say Never Again ) and his sidekick, Bough (Ben Miller - Molly Moon and the Incredible Book of Hypnotism ).

Our hero's investigation is dogged by a mysterious femme fatale ( Natalie Imbruglia ). The clues lead him to a creepy billionaire (John Malkovich - Hitch-Hiker's Guide To The Galaxy (2005) ). His plan is to become King of England, and then turn the country into a prison-industrial complex for other nations.

He investigates an evil conspiracy of assassins, who use a Chinese cleaning lady to bump off witnesses. His Boss ( Gillian Anderson ) and co-worker (Dominic West - The Awakening ) do not have much faith in his abilities. Luckily Bond girl Rosamund Pike does ...

The movie plays more like a UK version of Steve Carrell’s Get Smart than the previous film. Pity there is no Anne Hathaway in this one, though.

Johnny English Strikes Again (2018)

Johnny English Strikes Again (2018) Someone hacks the British Intelligence computers and steals the NOC list. This is a classic mcguffin, previously used in Skyfall . This time it is taken to a logical conclusion - with the secret agents no longer secret, the British Secret Service must call their best men out of retirement. Charles Dance ( Game of Thrones ), Edward Fox (Day of the Jackal) and Michael Gambon ( Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince(2009) ) are on the short-list.

Johnny English (Rowan Atkinson - Never Say Never Again ) is now a geography teacher in Lincolnshire. He is now reinstated, and reunited with his sidekick Bough (Ben Miller - Molly Moon and the Incredible Book of Hypnotism ). This is actually a good thing. English is a competent school-teacher, not the bumbling fool he usually is. By using old-fashioned analogue technology from the 1980s they render themselves virtually immune to their digitally-based opponent.

Our hero's investigation is dogged by a mysterious femme fatale (Bond girl Olga Kurlyenko ). The clues lead him to a creepy billionaire named Volta (Jake Lacy - Rampage (2018) ). His plan is to monopolise all the data of the G-12 nations.

Previously English's boss was Gillian Anderson , a Stella Rimmington type. Now he is responsible to the Prime Minister ( Emma Thompson ), a Teresa May type. Yes, the movie does not pass the bechdel test but at least there is no glass ceiling.

The film's humour is quite basic. Despite being highly competent when the story demands it, the protagonist is the living embodiment of Brexiteer bluster. He believes in good old-fashioned British exceptionalism, and pig-headedly sticks to his assumptions which repeadedly ends him up as the butt of comedy in slapstick situations.

Bean: The Ultimate Disaster Movie (1997)

Bean: The Ultimate Disaster Movie (1997) This is the big-screen debut of Mr Bean (Rowan Atkinson - Johnny English ), a character who revived silent movie slapstick comedy on British TV in the 1990s. It turns out that the protagonist, as accident prone and mentally lacking as he might seem, actually has a day-job. He works as an attendant at the Royal National Gallery, London. The executives, including Gareth (Peter Capaldi - Lair of the White Worm ), are unable to get Mr Bean fired - so they arrange with the Chairman (Sir John Mills - ) to have him sent to the USA instead!

The invite from the USA comes at the behest of David Langley (Peter McNichol - Dragonslayer ), a curator at the Grierson Gallery in Los Angeles, California. His boss, George Grierson (Harris Yulin - Buffy the Vampire Slayer (1997) ), has arranged for the gallery to display the famous American painting, Whistler's Mother. PR woman Bernice Schimmel ( Sandra Oh ) has lots of cheesy merchandise to sell in the gallery's gift shop, so they can maximize their income and subsidise the gallery's shows for the rest of the year. In other words, the painting display is vital to the gallery - and thus to Langley's career (and contuinued employment).

Langley invites Mr Bean to stay at his family home for the week. Unfortunately Mrs Langley ( Pamela Reed ) is unhappy about having an eccentric Englishman around her family, and takes her teenage kids away with her. Yes, Langley's family is at stake as well as his job. This leads on to scenes where McNichol, the erstwhile straight man of the comic duo, melts down and completely steals the whole movie from the title character.

There are a couple of thriller aspects to the story. Firstly Bean has repeated run-ins with LAPD Detective Lieutenant Brutus (Richard Gant - V: The Final Battle ). Secondly he has to outwit Elmer the security chief (Larry Drake - Darkman (1992) ) in an extended parody of the heist movie genre.

The climax is the gala unveiling of the painting, in front of the Gallery's patron - General Newton (Burt Reynolds - ). Mister Bean, famous for his awkwardness, has to make a speach!

This was directed by Mel Smith , a long-time collaborator of Atkinson's who was best known as an actor in his own right. There is also a listed appearance by Johnny Galecki ( I Know What you Did Last Summer ) as Stingo Wheelie, although his scenes seem to have been trimmed in the final cut.

    They track the villainous Quintana (Kurt Kaznar - Land of Giants ) to his secret base, which looks like a Hollywood back-lot used for wild west movies. It is guarded by a small army of henchmen who are too stupid to shoot from cover, and needlessly expose themselves to incoming fire.

    Miss Congeniality Franchise

    Miss Congeniality (2000)

    Miss Congeniality (2000) Gracie Hart ( Sandra Bullock ) is a female Incel who became an FBI Agent. The Bureau gets a threat from a domestic terrorist who intends to bomb the Miss America pageant. The team's newly promoted leader (Benjamin Bratt - Demolition Man (1994) ) appoints Gracie to go undercover as one of the contestants.

    The contest's organisers, Candice Bergen and William Shatner ( Star Trek: TOS ), reluctantly agree to play along. They put the Feds in touch with Victor (Michael Caine - ), who gives her a full-body makeover. Gracie is happy to let her cow-orkers go undercover as homeless people, but she is unhappy about making the sacrifice of having to be glamourous.

    The film has a subplot concerning Gracie's romantic relationship with her long-term cow-orker who is now her new boss.

    Miss Congeniality 2: Armed And Fabulous (2005) Gracie Hart ( Sandra Bullock ) learns the hard way that she is now too famous to do undercover or plainclothes work.

    The first movie had a major subplot concerning Gracie's romance with Eric (Benjamin Bratt - Demolition Man (1994) ). Since that subplot has been tied up, the love interest character is written out. Rather than just have him mysteriously disappear, the script has him dump her and get transferred to thousands of miles away to Miami.

    Ten months later, Gracie is a diva who performs publicity work for the FBI. Her reluctant bodyguard is Sam Fuller ( Regina King ), someone who shares many of the anti-social attributes that Gracie did in the first movie. The stereotypical gay male assistant is Dietrich Bader ( ).

    The beauty pageant organiser (William Shatner - Star Trek: TOS ) gets kidnapped by a couple of working-class white men. The head investigator is Treat Williams ( The Phantom ), yet another straight white man. He refuses to listen to Gracie's hunches, despite her years of exemplary service as a field agent. In all fairness, Gracie is such an annoying diva that even the black woman does not believe her.

    The Heat (2013)

    The Heat (2013) A female FBI agent ( Sandra Bullock ) is assigned to a major case in Boston. She reluctantly teams up with an abrasive detective ( Melissa McCarthy ), and these females must outwit both male crooks and male rival cops. Not entirely like the setup for Miss Congeniality 2: Armed And Fabulous (2005) .

    So why is this not Miss Congeniality 3? Well, the writer/director was Paul Feig and this is one of a series of genre parodies he did with McCarthy. She is the main comedic character while Bullock is basically the straight woman.

    This is a parody of buddy cop movies such as Tango and Cash. The miss-matched cops are after a mysterious drug kingpin who has a small army of expendable thugs at his disposal. There is also a jurisdictional dispute since nobody told the FBI that the DEA were already on the case.

    Naked Gun 2 1/2: The Smell Of Fear (1991)

    Naked Gun 2 1/2: The Smell Of Fear (1991) This is the sequel to a movie based on a TV show, so there should be no need to introduce Detective Lieutenant Frank Drebin. However, this movie's opening scene provides all the exposition necessary. Drebin attends a gala dinner at the White House, where President George H.W. Bush presents him with an award for killing a thousand drug dealers. This perfectly parodies the 1980s War-on-Drugs propaganda movies, while Drebin's klutziness creates lots of slapstick humour. After the presentation, President Bush gives a speech that encapsulates the movie's main theme. Bush is about to decide on the USA's energy policy, and is waiting for a scientist ( ) to deliver a report on the best form of energy. Will it be renewable energy, which will make America self-sustaining? Or will it be carbon fuel, which will destroy the environment?

    The villains of this episode are the oil barons (S.P.I.L.L.), the coal industry (S.M.O.K.E.) and the nuclear power-plant owners (K.A.B.O.O.M.). Yes, this is part of the environmentalist wave of films that came out during the first Bush Presidency. Other entries in that sub-genre include Highlander 2 . What this film does that marks itself out is that it reminds the audience that the polluting industries only existed because of massive subsidies from the US Government.

    A hitman (Anthony James - Buck Rogers in the 25th Century ) has been hired by the villains. First he tries to kill the scientist, then he kidnaps the scientist so the villains can deploy a lookalike. Frank Drebin must save the day.

    The B-plot is virtually the same as in the first film. Frank's love interest ( Priscilla Presley ) has split up with him, and now he must woo her back. The good news is that she now works with the energy scientist, so Frank can multi-task while investigating the kidnapping. The bad news is that she has a new love interest - the head villain. Well, such coincidences are what a concise plot relies upon.

    Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2 (2015) This starts with the conclusion of the first movie. Paul Blart (Kevin James - ) saved the day and got the girl. He married his love interest ( Jayma Mays ), but she divorced him six days later. Well, if a character has no role in an ongoing storyline they tend to get written out pretty quickly.

    Six years later, Paul is invited to attend a convention. Sort of like the setup for Police Academy 5: Miami Beach , only this one is in Las vegas. The hotel's general manager ( Daniella Alonso ) is set up as a new love interest, an idea which is quite comedic in itself.

    Luckily there is a thriller storyline instead of just leaving this as a rom-com of errors. A rich villain (Neal McDonough - Arrow ) and his henchman (DB Woodside - Buffy: Season 7 ) are staying in the same hotel, and plan to conduct a heist of an art collection. Only Paul Blart can save the day!

    Like all well-thought-out characters, Blart has an achilles heel - a kryptonite of sorts. His happens to be his diabetes. This leads on to a hilarious scene when we see the lengths he has to go to in order to regain his depleted blood-sugar levels.

    St Trinian's 2: Legend of Fritton's Gold (2009)

    St Trinian's 2: Legend of Fritton's Gold (2009) In the year 1589, Captain Fritton (Rupert Everett - ) steals a treasure from Captain Pomfrey (David Tennant - ). They are both dressed as in the Eighteenth Century, but Queen Elizabeth is a more recognisable monarch than Queen Anne. This movie pays little attention to historical accuracy - somehow Fritton recorded the accurate longitude of the treasure, back in the age of Shakespeare.

    In the year 2009, St Trinians is open for business again. Headmistress Fritton has her staff together - the Matron ( Celia Imrie ), the Bursar (Toby Jones Red Lights ), Beverly ( Jodie Whittaker ) and the Physics teacher ( Katherine Parkinson ). As always, it is the girls who really run the school.

    Pomfrey's descendant is after the long-lost treasure. Anabelle Fritton ( Talulah Riley ), the newly appointed Head Girl, must beat him to it. She leads the older girls - Celia ( Juno Temple ), Chelsea ( Tamsin Egerton ), Roxy ( Sarah Harding ), Bianca ( Zawe Ashton ), Zoe ( Montserrat Lombard ). The previous year's Head Girl, Kelly ( Gemma Arterton ), takes time off from her new job as a female 007 - presumably a reference to Quantum of Solace - to help out.

    The Headmistress gets help from her ex-lover, Geoffrey Thwaites (Colin Firth - ). He reveals that Pomfrey is leader of a secret society, AD1 ... a group of straw-men misogynists who have been oppressing wimmen. This is not a particularly woke movie, however - it is clearly a comedy, so the misandry is for laughs.

    The Third Act takes place in London, with live audiences as the girls stage a flashmob and then hijack a production of Romeo and Juliet.

    The previous movie ended on a high note, with Derek getting his happy-ever-after. In order to motivate the character, the writers had to kill off his wife Matilda ( Christine Taylor ). This allows him the chance for a new love interest ... and a new damsel in distress - his estranged son.

    Derek and Hansel encounter the evil DJ (Justin Theroux - Your Highness ), a former henchman of the long-imprisoned Mugatu (Will Ferrell - Land of the Lost ). Yes, it is obvious who the villain is. His henchwoman, Katinka ( Milla Jovovich ), is officially MIA - but she still makes an appearance in the film.

    The one thing that cheapens this movie is the numerous cameo appearances of celebrities playing themselves. The one with Susan Boyle is an update on the Weird Al Yankovich one in Naked Gun 2 1/2 , but the appearance of Neil Degrasse Tyson is inexplicable - certainly compared to the time he played himself in Stargate: Atlantis .
