Best Adult Comedies of 2013
Want to watch a few comedies while the kids are away? Or what about a raunchy comedy that'll tickle you senseless until it hurts. Well, then look no further than this hub. Once every year for the new year, I publish previews for readers to find their favorite films, and each film is categorized by genre. Unlike last year, I've decided to divide up the comedy category into two different preview hubs. One for families and kids, and the other one for adults. This was mainly due to the fact that my previews for comedies was the least popular among the previews last year, so I've decided to change it up again.
As some readers may notice, some of these movies have trailers, while others don't. The ones that don't have any are the ones that haven't released any yet, but I will be adding them as soon as they're available throughout the year. Also, be sure to check your local listings, as release dates are subject to change.
Update 1: "College Debts" was pushed back to november 15, 2013.
Update 2: "The Stupidest Angel", "Gridiron UK", "Audrey", "Cavagio and My Mother the Pope", and "Chicanery" were pushed back to 2014.

Continuously fired from minimum wage employment, Blake and his best friend Elliot get sucked into the dangerous world of gambling. Luckily, Blake's sister Angela has proven to be a reliable roommate and so far taken care of her irresponsible younger brother. When a car crash on the way to a job interview lands her in the hospital, Blake offers to start the job in his sister's place, which turns out to be more complicated than expected: His ward is the homely and socially inept 20-year-old agoraphobic Giselle, who insists on a *female* assistant. However, the girl and her mother have never met Angela in person, and thus Blake is able to transform himself into a convincingly enough version of his sister. Realizing this gives him an opportunity to not only hide from the bookies but also from his visiting alcoholic mother...
