The Hangover Part II
A modest bachelor brunch devolves into a wild weekend in Bangkok when the gang travels to Thailand to see Stu get married in "The Hangover Part II."

Still traumatized by memories of the Las Vegas fiasco, Stu (Ed Helms) vows to keep his pre-wedding partying to the bare minimum. But when Phil (Bradley Cooper), Doug (Justin Bartha), and Alan (Zach Galifianakis) show up, Stu's low-key brunch makes their previous Vegas fiasco look like a family trip to Disneyland. "The Hangover Part II" features cameos by Mike Tyson and Paul Giamatti.

The film made U.S. box office history after grossing $86.5 ...

Recalling the emergency on Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Monday night, the funnyman said, "I poured a little diesel and lit it... I knew what I was doing; I was an Eagle Scout... But six minutes later my land is ablaze and I'm running to my neighbor.

"Two fire trucks and an ambulance came. These good old guys, like, see me as a city slicker, so it's really embar...

Ke$ha attended the amfAR Inspiration Gala at The Museum of Modern Art last night wearing black shorts with a train and black blouse. We know the pop star likes to dress provacatively, but we're not sure this look was appropriate. What do you think?

Ke$ha once said "Hangover" star Zach Galifianakis was her ideal man, admitting she is attracted to fat and bearded boyfriends. The actor has responded, saying he snubbed her attempts to contact him and criticized her music when they finally met during a night out.

'The Hangover: Part II' Is A Bad Trip.

June 1st, 2011 10:52pm EDT
Poster
I know I’m over thinking things here, but I couldn’t get over just how damn superficial the “The Hangover: Part II” is. None of the characters have depth, everyone is a jerk, or a liar, or a cheat, or a drug addict, or weird, and yet in the end everything turns out fine for everyone who has acted badly. Don’t we go to the movies to escape reality?

I like movies where characters with low status qualities, such as being an asshole (Bradley Cooper), a weirdo (Zach Galifianakis), or a tight ass (Ed Helms) go through change and become different or better people. This is called an arc....

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...

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 made superstars out of Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms and Zach Galifianakis. Now they’re back in The Hangover Part II and Cooper took the lead in speaking for the reunion of the wolf pack.

“I think part of the reason why there was so much room for the second one is because there was so much unfinished,” Cooper said. “You really didn’t get to know the characters. The narrative was really this mystery, this ticking clock pressing them in the first one. I think the difference between that one and this one is this movie’s more about the dynamic of the three guys and you really get to kn...

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...

He says, "I figured we'd seen it (tasering) on (movie) Jackass and those guys do it, they're fine. I approached the guys; I figured it would be a fun thing to do.

Crew Persuaded 'Hangover' Director To Cut Mel Gibson Cameo

Moviemaker Todd Phillips has spoken out about his decision to cut a Mel Gibson cameo from his "The Hangover" sequel, insisting it just wasn't worth upsetting members of his crew just for two minutes of film.

The director invited the embattled star to shoot a hilarious cameo in the movie, but too many crew members were upset about the idea, following the release of Gibson's rage-filled phone rant aimed at his ex-lover Oksana Grigorieva and her allegations he attacked her.
