Less a caper than a trudge, the third film in the blokey comedy franchise has hit the wall
They probably won't be putting "not as offensively racist as the last one" on the poster, but that's about as much praise as the (hopefully) final instalment of the blokey comedy franchise merits. It could have gone either way. The first was an unexpected delight, with its clever "what just happened?" structure (lifted from the underrated Dude, Where's My Car?); the second was an unimaginative replica, with anti-Asian jokes. Both elements are toned down this time, and if the racism isn't missed, the amnesiac-mystery device is. This is less a caper than a trudge; a linear adventure that proceeds in fits and starts, with few surprises and fewer laughs. There's barely even a hangover.
Things get off to an ominous start with a motorway gag involving a giraffe that is telegraphed 20km in advance. »

When The Hangover was released in 2009, nobody was expecting much from the comedy starring three under-the-radar actors - which is exactly why the surprisingly hilarious and original film took the world by storm and killed it at the box office. Fast-forward four years, and we're upon the release of The Hangover Part III, which suffers from the opposite effect. The film is highly anticipated by fans hoping to re-create the magic of the original (and forget Part II), but aside from a few sporadic laughs, the film is another disappointing installment in a franchise that should have quit while it was ahead. I have to give some credit to director Todd Phillips, who at least tried to go in a new direction with Part III. The "what happened last night?" formula showcased in the first two films is left behind this time, favoring a straight plotline centered on Alan (Zach Galifianakis »

"I bought an orca. I make a lot of money."
There's a brand new trailer out for We're the Millers, this summer's drug-heist-run-amok comedy starring Jason Sudeikis and Jennifer Aniston. The premise sounds fairly delightful with Sudeikis as a small-time drug dealer who gets roped into running a shipment across the Mexican Border by the orca-owning Ed Helms and thinks his best bet is to hire stripper Aniston and two random kids to pose as his family. Sounds like a reasonable plan right?
The last time Sudeikis and Aniston starred together was in the hard-r comedy Horrible Bosses which went on to earn over $200 million at the worldwide box office. If the final twenty seconds of this trailer are indicative of what the movie's all about, it could be that they strike gold again with We're the Millers.
Next Showing: We're the Millers will be in theaters August 9th.

New Line's latest comedic creation is the story of a small-time drug dealer (Sudeikis) who is hired to smuggle a "smidge" of pot across the border from Mexico into the U.S. and creates a made-up family to try and fake out border patrol. He enlists a stripper, Rose, as his wife (Aniston), and a neighbor boy (Will Poulter) and homeless teen (Emma Roberts) as his two children. The movie also stars Ed Helms and Nick Offerman, and is directed by Rawson Marshall Thurber (Dodgeball). »
And so, it all comes to end. For many The Hangover franchise came to a grinding halt after the last outing, which was just a terrible blow by blow rehash of the original in different locations. However, there is no way in hell you can apply the same criticism to the final movie in Todd Phillips trilogy. This is very, very different from whats gone before. So that means no weddings, stag nights and ironically enough, no hangovers! Instead, Phil (Bradley Cooper), Stu (Ed Helms) and Doug (Justin Bartha) find themselves attempting to get Alan (Zach Galifianakis) to a rehab centre mixed up with a big time gangster called Marshall played by John Goodman. Marshall’s connection goes back to the original movie, but basically he wants our hapless heroes to find Mr.Chow (Kim Jeong) and the gold he’s stolen, otherwise he’s going to kill Doug. Granted nobody would miss Doug, »

Summarizing the plot of a movie like Hangover 3 is a little pointless. Let’s face it, the plot is pretty much here just to get us from one joke to the next and to throw in some hijinks along the way. So Alan’s (Zach Galifianakis) been off his meds for six months, which causes typical Alan behavior which leads to the death of his father due to a stress-induced heart attack. The Wolfpack is called in to help stage an intervention, and Alan agrees to go to rehab in Arizona if Doug (Justin Bartha), Phil (Bradley Cooper) and Stu (Ed Helms) will drive him there. On the way, they’re kidnapped by a kingpin named Marshall (John Goodman) who’s looking for a fresh-from-escaping-Thai-prison Chow (Ken Jeong). Marshall keeps Doug (of course) and sets Alan, Phil and Stu free to find Chow and bring him back to swap him for Doug. That »

Your Memorial Day weekend movie choices provide a little something for everyone -- action, comedy, and family-friendly fantasy. "Fast & Furious 6," "The Hangover Part III," and "Epic" are hitting theaters, and we have the details on all three to help you decide what to see over the long holiday weekend. If you're an adrenaline junkie, a gear head, or just a fan of Vin Diesel, the "Fast & Furious" franchise's sixth installment skids into theaters on Friday, and all of the "Fast" cast is back. "Fast 5" left off with Dom (Diesel), Brian (Paul Walker), and their crew high off an elaborate heist in Brazil that netted them $100 million, but also forced them to flee, so they scattered themselves around the world to avoid being caught. "Fast & Furious 6" catches back up with the crew, who are now tired of living life on the run. Enter Agent Luke Hobbs (Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson), who »

London got a large dose of star power today when the cast of The Hangover hit the red carpet to premiere the third installment of their franchise. Bradley Cooper, Justin Bartha, Ed Helms, Zach Galifianakis, Todd Phillips, Ken Jeong, and Heather Graham met up in front of the cameras to pose for pictures and chat among themselves, flashing plenty of smiles along the way. The boys, Bradley, Zach, Ed, and Justin, kept the fun going following the red carpet during an afterparty at London's Roka restaurant. Bradley took the celebrations one step further, attending a house party in Chelsea later that night. It was their second big event of the week after also bringing the movie to La on Monday. It looked like Zach was on his best behavior in the UK following his funny antics at the West Coast premiere - Zach hopped into a car trunk before walking »

Our friend James Kleinmann got to chat with the Writer / Director Todd Phillips, the man behind all the the Hangover movies. In the interview, James asks Todd about what it was about the story that they wanted to bring to the screen and how it would move on from the previous two films. This film is much more of a heist movie and James asks more about that, how Alan (Zach Galifianakis’ character) integrates in and what he’s ultimately looking for.
James also asks about new cast-members John Goodman and Melissa McCarthy, how they fit into the story and also into the ensemble cast as a whole. Finally we get to hear from Todd about his films sitting within a group of films made famous by the city of Las Vegas and more specifically returning to the city that was a character in the first film and his choice »

Director: Todd Phillips.
Running Time: 100 minutes.
Synopsis: With Alan (Zach Galifianakis) off his meds, the Wolfpack form an intervention. On the way to rehab, the consequences of the first two films catch up with them as they find themselves the missing link to get the intimidating Marshall (John Goodman) to his goal – a certain Leslie Chow (Ken Jeong).
Todd Phillips’ first two booze-fuelled bouts of cinematic amnesia may have grossed over $1 billion worldwide, but 2009’s The Hangover never screamed with trilogy potential. The gang’s all here, but you sense they’re ready to leave the fun behind. And so, it turns out, are we.

Some movies pretty much just sell themselves. And that's the case with "We're the Millers," which features the comedy team of Jason Sudeikis and Jennifer Aniston as a couple of hapless nobodies who get roped into becoming international drug smugglers.
But just in case you aren't sold on that description alone, don't worry, we've also got both the regular and red band trailers right here to convince you, courtesy of YouTube.
Hey, you know what they say: A picture is worth a thousand words.
And in this case, it's also worth $100,000, which is the amount crazy businessman Ed Helms offers Sudeikis' low level dope dealer to bring back a truckload of prime hashish from Mexico. That in turn prompts a brilliant plan: With the help of a stripper acquaintance (that's Aniston! Thank you, lord!) and a couple of mismatched ragamuffins (Emma Roberts and Will Poulter), they'll just pretend to be »

Based on the overwhelmingly negative critical reaction to their latest bro-tastic adventure, it seems the Wolfpack have lost their comedic bite. The Hangover Part III is now in theaters, reuniting Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms and Zach Galifianakis in Las Vegas for another day of mayhem and debauchery. But alas, like lukewarm beer that's lost its fizz, the comedy has left a bad taste with most critics, who—like they did with its predecessor, The Hangover Part II—offered scathing appraisals. E! News rounds up some of the most damning reviews. Read on! • "These superannuated party animals try vainly to stir up some enthusiasm during a return visit to Las Vegas, the »
Sneak Peek the new restricted, 'red-band' trailer featuring Jennifer Aniston as a stripper in "We’re the Millers".
"...'David Burke' (Sudeikis) is a small-time pot dealer whose clientele includes chefs and soccer moms, but no kids—after all, he has his scruples.
"So what could go wrong? Plenty. Preferring to keep a low profile for obvious reasons, he learns the hard way that no good deed goes unpunished when he tries to help out some local teens and winds up getting jumped by a trio of gutter punks.
"Stealing his stash and his cash, they leave him in major debt to his supplier, 'Brad' (Helms).
"In order to wipe the slate clean—and maintain a clean bill of health—David must now become a big-time drug smuggler by bringing Brad’s latest shipment in from Mexico. »

Can we all just agree that Jennifer Aniston has a great body? Not just for a 44 year old mind you, but a great body period? I think if she knew we were all in agreement she might stop relying on the need to expose it in movies and instead focus on finding smart scripts with interesting characters. Not that I’m making any kind of premature judgement on her latest film, We’re the Millers, based on the brand new red band trailer below. Jason Sudeikis stars as a drug dealer who agrees to smuggle a smidge of pot across the border from Mexico for a very wealthy man (Ed Helms). The plan is simple. Rent a wife, two children, and an Rv, and then avoid border suspicion by looking like nothing more than a happy family on vacation. Aniston plays a stripper he hires as his wife, and Emma Roberts and Will Poulter play their lovable »

Todd Phillips’ swan song The Hangover Part III took in an estimated $3.1 million in Wednesday night runs as it got a jump on the long Memorial Day weekend. That was notably less than the $10.4 million earned in midnight grosses by The Hangover Part II in 2011, a record for an R-rated film. Photos: 'The Hangover Part III': Justin Bartha's Instagrams From Set Nor is Hangover III, from Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures, expected to match the $135 million Thursday-Monday debut of Hangover II.

If your hunger for raunchy humor (and Mexican locations) isn't satisfied by this weekend's "The Hangover, Part III," then you can rest easy because "We're the Millers," an upcoming comedy starring Jennifer Aniston, Jason Sudeikis, and Emma Roberts, is coming this August -- and it looks pretty funny. The movie, directed by Rawson Marshall Thurber ("Dodgeball"), concerns a small time pot dealer (Sudeikis) who is enlisted by a wealthy client (Ed Helms) to retrieve a staggering amount of weed from Mexico. Feeling that a family is a better cover for cross-country drug smuggling, he cajoles a local stripper (Aniston), a homeless teen (Roberts), and a nerd who lives in his building (Will Poulter) to pose as a family. They're the Millers. As the trailer suggests, things get out of control. Honestly it's amazing how much they get away with showing in a green-band trailer (there's also a red-band equivalent that's »

★★☆☆☆ There are some films which simply don't need sequels, but these days it's increasingly likely that studios will green-light follow-ups after an a successful first outing. Such was the case with The Hangover (2009); the film struck a tone with cinemagoers, but spawned a lacklustre sequel. Director Todd Phillips and co are back for The Hangover Part III (2013), and whilst it's a slightly better entry than its predecessor, the third (and final?) instalment still lacks the spark of the original. It's been two years since the events in Bangkok, and friends Phil (Bradley Cooper), Stu (Ed Helms), and Doug (Justin Bartha) are enjoying domesticity.
The same can't be said for Alan (Zach Galifianakis), whose already disturbing behaviour takes a turn for the worse after a family tragedy. Staging an intervention to convince their friend to get the help he needs, the 'Wolfpack' are on a road trip when they get ambushed »
