7 Best Hollywood Action-Comedies

Team FC

Hot Fuzz (2007)

Edgar Wright directed this tribute to buddy cop comedies that was the perfect blend of cop, action, and comedy, landing every single joke and every single punch it delivered.

Kung Fu Panda (2008)

This animated film created a much-loved franchise, but the opener is still the perfect blend of action and comedy in this form of cinema, with Jack Black's panda stealing most of the laughs and the animators delivering the kung fu.

Kingsman: The Secret Service (2014)

Directed by Matthew Vaughn, this outlandish action comedy about a secret organisation that keeps the peace of the world facing off against a McDonald's loving villain was the sort of stuff cinema would kill to have back again.

Spy (2015)

Melissa McCarthy headlined this outlandish spy comedy by Paul Feig, going from a CIA desk analyst who is bored with the staidness of her work to an ass-kicking field operative who takes down anyone standing in her way.

Deadpool (2016)

Tim Miller directed this complete re-jig of a superhero film which combined a zany selfwareness with lots of action and much more comedy.

The Nice Guys (2016)

Directed by Shane Black, this 70s-set neo-noir mystery-comedy also packed a fair few punches, most of them to the credit of Russell Crowe, who plays one of the leads alongside Ryan Gosling.

The Fall Guy (2024)

David Leitch directed Ryan Gosling and Emily Blunt in this action comedy about a romance and the making of an action film.
