Brigsby Bear is an American comedy film released in 2017 and directed by Dave McCary.The film stars Beck Bennet, Kyle Mooney and Mark Hamill. We didn’t see much of Samberg in this movie as he was a lot more invested behind the scenes. The Lonely Island produced Brigsby Bear. The film received acclamation for its sentimental tone, script, and direction, cast and art design.
The movie follows a captive man named James, recently rescued from an underground bunker where he obsessed over a children’s television program titled Brigsby Bear Adventures. When he realizes his captor was the one who created the show, his fascination leads him to finish the storyline himself. This film may well be the darkest film we have on our Top 5 Andy Samberg movies list.
Tour de Pharmacy
IMDb rating – 7.1/10
Directed by Jake Szymanski, the Tour De Pharmacy is a 2017 sports doping mockumentary( A film/show on fictional events presented as a documentary). The film stars Andy Samberg, Orlando Bloom, Freddie Highmore, Daveed Diggs, and John Cena. The jokes are as quick and relentless as gunfire so you can be sure you won’t be done chuckling before something even dumber comes along.
Set in a fictional 1982 during a supposedly dark time in cycling history, The sport of cycling, one of the most revered and time-honoured races, was marred by the doping of virtually all of its competitors. The film, shown from the perspective of five riders, gives its viewers an insiders look into the grim realities of one of the darkest events in a sport that is notoriously tainted by controversy.
7 days in Hell
IMDb rating – 7.1/10
Another Mockumentary, directed by Jake Szymanski and stars Andy Samberg and Kit Harington in the lead roles. 7 Days In Hell was inspired by the Isner-Mahrut marathon men’s singles match at the 2010 Wimbledon Championship. In the mockumentary, Aaron Williams (Andy Samberg) and Charles Poole (Kit Harington) are professional tennis players who face off in what becomes the longest match in history.
The documentary ends with video flashbacks of Poole and Williams praising each other. The film’s ridiculous premise along with its off-brand humour made it one of Samberg’s stranger comedies and clearly one of his best. Definitely had to be on our list of Top 5 Andy Samberg Movies!
IMDb rating – 7.1/10
Hotel Transylvania is an American animated comedy released in 2012 and directed by Genndy Tartakovsky. Andy Samberg has done a lot of voice acting jobs, but Hotel Transylvania is by far his best.
