The Hangover Part III - Movie Review


The Hangover Part III brings the wolfpack back together for another crazy ride, but this time there is no bachelor party and no one is getting married. This time around writer and director Todd Phillips sends the crew on a mission that brings all of their adventures back full circle. Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms, Zach Galifianakis, and Ken Jeong all return to their roles and John Goodman joins the cast as a new villain.

Identity Thief - Movie Review


Director Seth Gordon is hoping to have as at least much success with his latest effort, Identity Thief, as he did with Horrible Bosses, his surprise hit from 2011. Reuniting with Jason Bateman and pairing him up with the outrageous antics of Melissa McCarthy is definitely a step in the right direction, but the key to any successful comedy is being able to combine all the gut busting moments with a story that keeps it from becoming a series of sketches that never add up to anything worthwhile.

This is 40 - Movie Review


This is 40 is known as "The Sort-of Sequel to Knocked Up" but turns out to be only sort of what writer/director Judd Apatow set out to create. Taking two of the characters from his previous hit film and giving them their own movie may have seemed like a good idea, but you still have to deliver a quality story with characters you are compelled to watch. Paul Rudd and Leslie Mann attempt to fill that promise by reprising their roles as married couple coming to terms with hitting the big four-zero.
