The Hangover Part III is a step in the right direction, it is just such a long walk back to being good after Part II.Read more "Film Review: The Hangover Part III"
The Hangover Part II could have easily been one of the best comedies of the summer, but instead of embracing the challenge of besting the first film, it hides behind the popularity of its predecessor, becoming nothing more than an uninspired copy.

The Hangover Part II is a lazy, uncreative, and terrible film that improves nothing upon the first film and in fact it copies the original almost note for note to painful affect.

Nick Twisp is your average teenage boy, without a girl, enthralled with […]Read more "Review: Youth in Revolt"
