Tales of unlikely friendships – and otherwise – abound in the range of upcoming comedies, all tailor made to leave you with a smile on your face.
CHiPs (Warner Bros)
Inspired by the beloved 1970s TV show, “Chips” stars Dax Shepard and Michael Peña as two very different new recruits to the California Highway Patrol in Los Angeles. One is a beaten up pro motor-biker trying to put his life and marriage back together, the other is a cocky undercover Federal agent investigating a multi-million dollar heist that may be an inside job within the CHP.
The inexperienced rookie and hardened pro are teamed together, but clash more than click, so kick-starting a partnership is easier said than done. But with the one’s bike skills combined with the other’s street savvy it might just work – if they don’t drive each other crazy along the way.

Table 19 (Fox)
Ex-maid of honour Eloise (Anna Kendrick) - having been relieved of her duties after being unceremoniously dumped by the best man via text - decides to hold her head up high and attend her oldest friend's wedding anyway. She finds herself seated at the 'random' table in the back of the ballroom with a disparate group of strangers, most of whom should have known to just send regrets (but not before sending something nice off the registry). As everyone's secrets are revealed, Eloise learns a thing or two from the denizens of Table 19. Friendships - and even a little romance - can happen under the most unlikely circumstances. Starring Anna Kendrick, Craig Robinson, June Squibb, Lisa Kudrow, Stephen Merchant, Tony Revolori, Wyatt Russell and Amanda Crew
