Review: 'The Hangover Part III' - Someone Forgot The Funny

May 23rd, 2013 4:00pm EDT
The Hangover Part III
I judge how good a comedy is, by how much I laugh, as well as how much the audience laughs...or doesn't, as was the case last night, sitting in the theatre, watching 'The Hangover Park 3'.

It's been two years since our guys...Phil (Bradley Cooper), Stu (Ed Helms) and Doug (Justin Bartha) have had any encounters with strippers, weird tigers, monkeys, gangsters or drugs.  In fact, they are all happily married and living the good life in suburbia.

The only member of the Wolf Pack who doesn't have his life together is (unsurprisingly)...Alan (Zach Galifianakis.) And now, he's off his meds. He...

It Ain’t Broke, So Philips Doesn’t Fix ‘The Hangover Part II’

May 27th, 2011 11:44am EDT
The Hangover Part II
You’re probably familiar with the sentiment “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it,” a colloquial expression, meaning that if you’ve found a proven formula for success, don’t mess with it. Usually when a sequel is made of a popular movie, this idea is employed by the filmmakers to some degree, so that they do not risk alienating their fans. No film in recent memory though, keeps this thought as close to the forefront as Todd Philips’ raunchy comedy “The Hangover: Part II.”

This sequel, to the 2009 hit about a bachelor party in Vegas gone awry, literally follows the same exact narrative struct...

Bangkok Is Wicked In 'The Hangover Part II,' Nice In Real Life

The Hangover Part II had to go even wilder than Las Vegas, so they went to Bangkok. This time the wolf pack wakes up and doesn’t even know how they got there from a Thailand resort. Shooting on the streets of Bangkok was chaotic too, but director Todd Philips said that was a good thing.=

“To make a movie about mayhem, sometimes you have to go to mayhem,” Philips said. “I think it all found its way into the movie and it helped. I think in a nutshell, Bangkok is just a very crowded, very chaotic and very hot city so I think we all had just challenges dealing with the crowds and the chaos but...

The Hangover Part II
Johnny Depp set sail again last week as Captain Jack Sparrow in “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides,” the fourth entry in the series. After viewing the movie, I can honestly say that it’s not the best in the franchise, but certainly not the worst either. While nothing can really top the first one in my mind, this one gets back to the spirit of the original.

Captain Jack runs into an old love interest, Angelica (Penelope Cruz), who convinces him to join her on a quest for the Fountain of Youth. Sparrow unwittingly climbs aboard the vessel of Angelica’s father, Blackbeard (Ian M...

The first teaser for the film, released just over a month ago, gave little about the film away other than that it takes place in Thailand and "The Wolfpack is Back."

However, his light-hearted appearance was axed this week following reports the movie's cast angrily objected to sharing the spotlight with the troubled star.

The Braveheart star has endured a tough year which saw him split from his girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva, the mother of his young daughter Lucia, and the nasty break-up played out in public.

Justin Bartha Slams 'Disgusting' Celebrity Culture

Justin Bartha has vowed never to publicize his romance with Ashley Olsen - because he is "disgusted" by celebrities who sell the intimate details of their private life in lucrative magazine deals.

The Hangover actor has been dating the former child star since 2008, but they are rarely photographed together. Bartha admits they go to extra effort to keep their relationship low-key because he never wants to fall into the trap of sharing the secrets of their romance with the world.

He tells Britain's Evening Standard newspaper, "It is not something that you keep under wraps. It is just the ...

The Museum of Fine Arts in Boston screened the independent film “Holy Rollers” last week so I had the chance to check it out. Based on a true story, "Holy Rollers" stars Jesse Eisenberg and Justin Bartha as Hasidic Jews who become drug smugglers. Eisenberg is fantastic as a man of faith conflicted by his new lifestyle, but the rest of his character Sam Gold is his standard awkward type casting. Justin Bartha is also believably sleazy and conniving as Sam's mentor Yosef. While its plot is intriguing, my overall opinion of it is brought down by the uninspired dialogue between its charac...
