3 The Heat (2013)
The Heat pairs an uptight FBI agent with a gringy cop from Boston. The unlikely duo have to work together to take down a demented drug lord.
Sandra Bullock is, you guessed it, the uptight FBI agent, a role perfectly suited for her And, who better to play a foul-mouthed sloppy cop than Melissa McCarthy.
The two can’t stand each other but put their differences aside to make the partnership work. Many hilarious situations arise out of two completely out of sync people trying to achieve a common goal, much like what you say in the Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard. The comedy keeps coming thick and fast from the rest of the cast as well.
4 We’re the Millers (2013)
David Clark (Jason Sudeikis) is a small time Pot dealer. But, he bites off a lot more than he can chew when he agrees to bring in a huge shipment of pot from Mexico to stateside, to settle some dues.

They are on holiday. But, nothing goes to plan in this hilarious crime comedy that will have you rolling in laughter from time to time. The entire cast has acted brilliantly. Ed Helms makes a guest appearance to add to the star studded cast in this movie.
There’s not a lot of action but there’s plenty of bungling comedic crime!
5 Get Hard (2015)
Get Hard features Will Ferrell and Kevin Hart. Both are hilarious in their own right. But, when they get together in Get Hard, it’s non-stop laughter. This isn’t an action movie but it is a fantastic crime-comedy to watch.
James (Will Ferrell) has been convicted of white collar crime. He is going to be locked up. He decides that he needs to ‘Get Hard’ before his time begins. So, he hires Darnell (Kevin Hart) to toughen him up, before his prison stint starts. Why Darnell? Because Kevin assumed Darnell will know how to survive in a prison because he is black. And, because he is named Darnell.
Darnell overlooks this ridiculous racism because he is down on his luck and needs the money.
The two get together for training sessions that result in hilarious situations. James has no idea how to get hard while Darnell has no idea how to get someone hard. But, the partnership somehow works, giving you a lot of laughs while at it.
