Win a DVD bundle to support the release of Army of One!

Hollywood legend Nicolas Cage is at his gonzo, gurning, goofball best as an American man on a mission to Pakistan to single-handedly mount a war on terror, in the most outrageously hilarious culture clash comedy to hit the screen since Borat, and directed by the comedy genius behind that film, Larry Charles. It’s made all the more berserk and bizarre by the fact that it is a true story.


Eccentric ex-convict Gary Faulkner has a vision from God, telling him he must single-handedly mount a war on terror. Faulkner, armed with a single samurai sword bought from a home shopping channel, travels from the US to Pakistan to embark on his highly dangerous and foolhardy mission – where he runs into bemused locals, irate CIA men, and even America’s most wanted, Osama bin Laden himself.

Army of One is available to rent on VOD and Digital HD from 19th December.

BatI love prosthetic effects, stop-motion animation and gore, but most of all I love a good story! I adore B-movies and exploitation films in many of their guises and also have a soft spot for creature features. I review a wide range of media including movies, TV series, books and videogames. I'm a massive fan of author Hunter S. Thompson and I enjoy various genre of videogames with Kingdom Hearts and Harvest Moon two of my all time favs. Currently playing: Silent Hill

  1. I really love Wes Anderson’s “The Grand Budapest Hotel”… stellar cast, with great physical and verbal comedy, but Ralph Fiennes as M. Gustave has some of the most fantastic lines which means he steals the show for me!

  2. Arsenic & Old Lace – Frank Capra & a black comedy – what could be better?

  3. Kitchen Stories (2003, dir. Bent Hamer) Definitely offbeat, set in the 1950s, it follows a Swedish scientific study into the kitchen habits of single Norwegian men to help optimize future kitchen designs. Has inspectors with clipboards perched on tennis umpire style chairs noting everything the men do in the kitchen. Eccentric and playful gem.

  4. Sleepers, cannot ignore Woody Allen for offbeat comedy.

  5. probably Napoleon dynamite,-high-school mixed with bizarre family members mixed with chat rooms and general geekdom. Love this

  6. The Court Jester with Danny Kaye, Cecil Parker & Basil Rathbone is absolutely hilarious, there are so many moments in it, including the ‘get it, got it, good’ rountine as well as ‘the pellet with the poison is in the vessel with the pestle, the chalice from the palace has the brew that is true’.

  7. my favourite is Office Space

  8. Has to be a private function. makes me laugh every time

  9. Stalled – zombies, toilet humour, ’nuff said.

  10. Love Mrs Doubtfire witht he late gtreat Robin Williams. I am such a fan of his!

  11. As its the time of the year, National Lampoons Christmas Vacation (Or any of the Griswold vacation movies new one included) are my favourite comedy movies of all time. But Christmas Vacation because it reminds me so much of myself and my family at Christmas. When your feeling down put on any of the Vacation movies and by the end of it you should have perked up a bit.

  12. Flakes is a good one.

  13. Hot Fuzz is full of clever satire.

  14. Home Alone, such a funny film

  15. My Favourite Comedy is The The Inbetweeners because I like its realistic feel and funny moments.

  16. Return of the Living Dead. The only comedy/horror zombie film I have really enjoyed. The mortician is hilarious

  17. Love Good Morning Vietnam Robin Williams is great the film is bitter sweet

  18. Top Secret – makes me laugh everytime

  19. I like all The Naked Gun films, despite OJ 😉

  20. Home Alone – good film to watch at Xmas!

  21. Airplane… (and don’t call me shirley!) because it is so funny

  22. My favorite comedy is Mrs Doubt fire with Robin Williams in, because it’s halaireous and he is a class act and a very funny guy, so you are laughing from the start to finish.

  23. Napoleon Dynamite because it’s a highly ironic, self-mocking, merciless run of sight gags and one liners with no apparent purpose other than to get laughs at the expense of its main characters, especially the eponymous Napoleon, a stand-in for everyone who’s ever felt like a socially inept outcast trapped in the hell of high school.

  24. The Life Of Brian – no contest

  25. I’ve always loved the movie 1941 – so under-rated 🙂 Dan Aykroyd is hilarious.

  26. Really love Tootsie with Dustin Hoffman

  27. Don’t be a menace to south central whilst drinking your juice in the hood is hilarious with Shawn and Marlon wayans

  28. Home alone is definitely the funniest film closely followed by Mrs Doubtfire

  29. Freddy Got Fingered – completely ludicrous of course, but some of the sketches are hilarious and warrant repeat viewing. “Daddy would you like some sausage?!”

  30. The Grand Budapest Hotel

  31. Love Farrelly brothers films and my fave is Kingpin because it’s laugh a minute funny

  51. I loved hot fuzz

  52. Gotta be Office Space – “My Stapler” hehhehe

  53. Sightseers – just for the pencil museum alone … quality film!

  55. Love Keeping Mum for its quirkiness and great light drama with murders on the side and excellent acting

  56. Pee-wee’s Big Adventure – my fave childhood movie, v strange looking back

  57. One that springs to mind is Very Bad Things. A bit like a less mainstream version of The Hangover a film it precedes by over a decade. The title sums it up nicely. A bachelor party spirals out of control with disastrous and darkly comedic results.

  58. Paul with Simon Pegg, you can’t beat funny science-fi

  59. Hot Fuzz. It’s a classic.

  60. I actually watched “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off” about 6 months ago for the very 1st time as everybody was saying what a funny and well put together film it was. I was not disappointed. Another off beat comedy that I watched at the weekend was “Gremlins”. Such a brilliant film.

  61. national Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation is a film I’ve always loved not so much for the plot but just the zany characters and complete amusement it always offers

  62. I love Office Space, it’s a film that I dig out every year or so, and then I’m so glad I did, it really appeals to my rebellious side!

  63. I love dude wheres my car, its so random!

  64. The Odd Couple based on a play by Neil simon

  65. Weekend at Bernies – childhood memories!

  69. I loved the Commitments great Irish humour and brilliant music..

  70. Ace ventura films make me laugh

  71. Has to be Pee-Wees Big Adventure 🙂

  72. Bananas from 1971,, madness in film form. Great mix of charecters and thoroughly bonkers.

  74. M*A*S*H by Robert Altman, laughs from the unlikeliest of scenarios.

  75. Home alone – reminds me of Tom and Jerry cartoons

  76. withmail and i – never gets dull. what a classic

  77. Dr Strangelove – a classic!

  78. Sam Raimi’s Crimewave – An underrated oddball comedy which cracked me up. Brion James manic laugh is very memorable and the film is bonkers.

  79. bad santa so funny and so bad at the same time

  80. The Candysnatchers. Very dark yet healing look at multiple interacting deceptive characters. The autistic child is portrayed by an amazing little actor. Evokes its era in sunny California, and one of the actors is Phyllis Major, the beautiful model wife of Jackson Browne. Evokes recognition half laughs, light and very watchable yet extremely dark.

  81. The secret life of Walter Mitty. I love the way Walter dreams while others people are talking to him. A wonderful film that I enjoy more every time I watch it.

  82. Shaun of the dead

  83. Batchelor Party, very smutty- an oldie but a goodie!

  84. Shaun of the Dead is my favourite. The scene where Simon Pegg and Nick Frost are choosing which LPs to throw at the zombies is priceless.

  85. Mrs Doubtfire with the late Robbie Williams at his best.

  86. The Grand Budapest Hotel

  87. Life of Brian – unbeatable

  88. Office Space, It is so true with every character based on individuals the writer has met in real life, I could identify characters in the movie I grew to loathe when I worked for a short time in a similar workplace.

  89. Almost Christmas makes me laff

  90. Return of the living dead, I loved it when i was younger and still do now. I

  102. Bad Santa makes me laugh way more than a film ever should.

  110. I never tire of So I Married An Axe Murderer, which I think is very underrated. So many quotable lines. Never gets old.

  111. home alone, great family film

  112. Johnny Dangerously – A true classic and every character had a plethora of fantastic lines to deliver.

  113. I love all Monty Python films but you have to have a strange sense of humour to laugh at them. (I’ve got a strange sense of humour!).

  114. Home Alone – I love it you filthy animals x

  115. life of brian is very funny
