The best films set in casinos

When it comes to the best films set in a casino, some of the most intense, thought-driven scenes rarely depict them as being in a casino. For example, take “Rain Man,” a comedy-drama directed by Barry Levinson. Towards the middle of the film, we see Charlie Babbitt (Tom Cruise) realise his recen[...]

Review: The Hangover Part III

— by ADAM DALE — When “The Hangover” opened in 2009, nobody saw it coming. It was one of the biggest surprise comedy hits in years and become one of the highest-grossing comedies of all time. It was so off the wall and raunchy that it was a breath of fresh air in a genre […][...]

Under Review: ‘The Hangover Part II’

— by ADAM POYNTER — When “The Hangover” burst onto screens in 2009, it was a word-of-mouth hit that took the world by storm. Directed by Todd Phillips, it went on to become the top grossing R-rated comedy, making more than $460 million worldwide ($277 million in the United States alo[...]

Two Clips from ‘The Hangover Part II’

— by SHERICE ANTOINETTE — On Thursday, the Wolf Pack returns to the big screen for yet another crazed bender. Trading Sin City for the City of Squalor (Bangkok, Thailand) the ante is upped when Phil (Bradley Cooper), Alan (Zach Galifiniakis) and Doug (Justin Bartha) arrange what they hop[...]

‘The Hangover Part II’ Trailer Pulled from Theaters

— by ALEXA MILAN — The first full-length green band trailer for “The Hangover Part II” wasn’t green band enough, at least not in the eyes of the Motion Picture Association of America. Warner Brothers and the MPAA have apparently sent a letter to movie theaters across[...]

Trailer Talk: ‘The Hangover Part II’

— by ALEXA MILAN — The wolfpack is back and getting into crazy shenanigans once again. “The Hangover” was a box office smash in 2009, so naturally Warner Brothers wanted to cash in on a sequel. And the new full-length trailer for the follow-up promises more memorable bachelor[...]

On the Set: ‘The Hangover Part II’

— by ALEXA MILAN — When I first saw “The Hangover” its opening weekend in 2009, I think I laughed harder than I’ve ever laughed in a movie theater. There were few moments in that film when I wasn’t at least smiling — the gang’s adventures with Mike Tys[...]

Four Clips from ‘Holy Rollers’

— by ALEXA MILAN — In his latest film, Jesse Eisenberg is leaving “Adventureland” and “Zombieland” for the seedy world of drug cartels. Inspired by true events, “Holy Rollers” centers on a group of Hasidic Jews who helped smuggle more than 1 million ec[...]

Trailer Talk: ‘Holy Rollers’

— by ROB COX — Jesse Eisenberg’s last major film was 2009’s feel-good, good-time, end-of-the-world pic “Zombieland.” Eisenberg got to run around a post apocalyptic version of America in that film, sidekick to Woody Harrelson, dispatching zombies in decidedly grizzly ways. It was [...]

Trailer Talk: ‘The Rebound’

— by AMANDA KOEHLER — It’s hard for me to picture Catherine Zeta-Jones as a suburban housewife, but not so hard for me to picture her as a cougar. In “The Rebound,” audiences will get to see her as both. Zeta-Jones plays Sandy, a 40-year-old who discovers her husband is[...]

Ready For Another ‘Hangover’?

— by CAM SMITH — I, like many, enjoyed the bejeezus out of last summer’s “The Hangover.” While hardly an innovative concept, it boasted sharp writing, a trio of extremely charismatic actors bouncing off one-another like a well-oiled comedy team and pitch-perfect direction under dir[...]

A Deleted Scene and a Featurette from ‘The Hangover’

— by ROBERT DeFEIS — When someone mentions the movie “The Hangover” to you, what do you think? Well, I think that is was by far the No. 1 comedy of the year and hopefully the DVD won’t disappoint on the extras it should have. Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms, Zach Galifianakis, Heather[...]
