If you’re anything like me, then The Fall Guy has left you longing for more movies that fit a similar narrative. It’s high comedy, action-packed and even gets a bit emotional at the end. With all that being said, here are some picks for what to watch if you had a great time watching this movie!

21 Jump Street
7.2 IMDb | 85% Rotten Tomatoes

21 Jump Street is a staple from the early 2010s. We follow Jonah Hill as Schmidt and Channing Tatum as Jenko as they join together to take on an undercover mission, posing as high-schoolers to bust a drug ring. Jenko is assigned to go undercover as a jock, fitting in with the popular kids, whereas Schmidt is assigned to fit in with the nerds. However, at the beginning of their mission, their identities are swapped, and they struggle to fit in. The movie proceeds in a hilarious display of struggle to fit in while also attempting to fulfil their job. It was such a hit that they also made a sequel!

21 Jump Street is available to rent and purchase on Amazon Prime Video, Apple TV, Google Play, YouTube, and Fandango!

The Nice Guys
7.4 IMDb | 91% Rotten Tomatoes

If it’s more Ryan Gosling you want, The Nice Guys are here for you! The Nice Guys is a buddy cop comedy movie following an unconventional private investigator duo and their mission to solve the case of an apparent suicide. If you seek slightly darker and grittier humor, this comedic take on a detective movie should be on your must-watch list!

Rush Hour
7 IMDb | 62% Rotten Tomatoes

Jackie Chan and Chris Tucker play two detectives who team up to rescue a Chinese diplomat’s daughter. Set in Los Angeles, we follow an hour and thirty minutes of martial art action between the two detectives that were put on a case no one else wanted. The movie highlights their unlikely pairing and cultural differences through hilarious banter. If you like the film, have no fear because there are two more Rush Hour movies you can watch to follow it up!

Hot Fuzz
7.8 IMDb/ 91% Rotten Tomatoes

Hot Fuzz is a British action-comedy movie starring Simon Pegg as Nicholas Angel and Nick Frost as Constable Danny Butterman. In the film, we follow Nicholas, who is so good at his job that he makes everyone else look like they aren’t trying hard enough. Due to this, he is reassigned to a small peaceful town called Sandford, although things look peaches and cream on the surface, Angel discovers that it might not be as calm as it seems. Hot Fuzz has the over the top action sequences that we loved in The Fall Guy and is littered with funny pop culture references and clever wordplay.

Hot Fuzz is available to rent and purchase on Amazon Prime Video, Apple TV, Google Play, Youtube and Fandango!

Bullet Train
7.3 IMDb / 54% Rotten Tomatoes

Bullet Train is a newer movie that came out in the 2020s and is just as funny and as full of action as The Fall Guy! Bullet Train revolves around a group of assassins that all board the same bullet train, each with a different agenda. Chaos begins to ensue when all of their plans intersect and interrupt one another. The movie stars actors like Brad Pitt, Aaron Taylor Johnson, Bad Bunny, and many others! The way Bullet Train does their action is incredibly similar to The Fall Guy, and both are equally funny!

If you haven’t seen Bullet Train, you can watch it with a Netflix subscription or purchase it on Amazon Prime Video, Apple TV, Google Play, and Fandango!

Luckily for those chasing more humor and action-packed movies, there are plenty of movie choices out there for us to enjoy!
