Tag Archives: The Hangover Part III
Greetings from the apocalypse! This here is my twentieth weekend column, which seemed like as good a time as any to reach out to my fellow weekend road warriors to say if you have any suggestions for upcoming films/local weekend events to feature in future editions just write me on Twitter. Signed 8 x 10 glossies will be sent to fans at my secretary's discretion. But seriously, write away — give this wandering rōnin of the desert some feedback, yo. Get More »
Innocent pedestrians would be forgiven for crossing to the other side of the street at the sight of Ken Jeong. After all, the 43-year-old actor is best known for playing the criminally insane Leslie Chow in the successful "Hangover" trilogy. (This when he isn't playing the often equally insane Senor Chang on the NBC series "Community.") For many, the enduring image associated with Jeong's name is that moment in "The Hangover" when he jumped out of a car trunk, naked and screaming, and wrapped his legs around poor, innocent Bradley Cooper's neck. Yikes.
Jeong gets to say "toodaloo motherf***ers" to Mr. Chow in this weekend's "The Hangover Part III," acting as the movie's central antagonist and main provocateur. The man himself couldn't be further from his character, however: In conversation, the father of two is earnest and nice. He even maintains his medical license. (Jeong was a physician before he decided to pursue acting and comedy.)
We caught up with Jeong ahead of the release of "The Hangover Part III" to talk about the franchise's finale, Harry Potter and (the lack of) Mr. Chow impersonators. Get More »
WARNING: SPOILERS up in here.
Booze, blow, prostitutes, old ladies ... one of the hallowed traditions of the Wolf Pack is to save the sickest, most depraved debauchery for the end credits, and that noble heritage is upheld for this weekend's "The Hangover Part III." Get More »
Who said celebrities are heartless?
Okay, yeah, we may have inferred that a time or two before, but hey we're totally happy to be proven wrong on that point. And today we have. Prepare to sob from all the sweetness contained herein, dear readers.
The Wolfpack is headed back to where it all began: Vegas. Instead of hopping the next flight to the city of sin for your own version of 'The Hangover', you can pretend to be part of the gang, courtesy of NextMovie's epic 'The Hangover Part III' Prize Pack Giveaway! Get More »
WARNING: Somewhat NSFW.
If there's one thing you can count on from "The Hangover Part III," it's that at some point in the film, Zach Galifianakis (and probably Ken Jeong, too) is gonna let it all hang out.
Now, while we respect such a display of uninhibited revelry, it doesn't mean that anybody — and we mean anybody — necessarily wanted to see such a thing. Let's face it (or, rather, let's not) — there are just some people who need to keep their junk in the trunk. Get More »
The internet's really cool sometimes, guys. This is one of those sometimes.
Above we have a lost video from the nether years of the late '90s — 1998, specifically, which is a full (uses Macbook calculator) 15 years ago — featuring the now uber-famous Zach Galifianakis and the now pretty damn-famous Ken Jeong (whose movie, "The Hangover Part III," comes out next weekend) doing some standup comedy together at a coffee house in Los Angeles. It's a fun watch, especially considering the rapport these two obviously already had a full decade before they would star together in "The Hangover." Get More »
Summer movie season is once again upon us, as the likes of "Iron Man 3," "The Wolverine" and "Pacific Rim" are set to blow us through the back wall of the theater with their huge action sequences, top-notch special effects and occasional witty quips.
But blockbusters aren't the only kind of movies at the multiplex this summer; they share space alongside quieter, more critically acclaimed fare. And let's face it — inside every loud, attention-grabbing, big-budget action flick or raucous all-star comedy, there's a sensitive, modest indie just waiting to get out. Right?
With that in mind, we've once again reinvented 10 summer blockbusters as smaller, less explosion-heavy films. After all, it's not such a huge leap to see "Fast & Furious 6" as a twee road trip movie about a non-traditional family or "Man of Steel" as the ultimate tale of an outsider wandering the Earth in search of identity and purpose.
It's summer, summer, summertime, time to sit back and unwind, as The Fresh Prince once rhymed. Iron Man, Wolverine, Superman and Hit-Girl are suiting up and the AC is pumping as studios trot out their big guns, eager to put butts in the seats with big stars, bigger explosions and lots of numbers after titles.
That's right, nearly a third of our list is sequels, there's even more that didn't make it, and that doesn't even count the reboots and potential franchise-starters in store as we dive headfirst into our glistening pool of summer movie bliss. Get More »
All good things must come to an end — unless, of course, you're talking about James Bond. But for every other beloved film franchise, there's inevitably a final installment. And for fans of one of the 21st century's most popular comedy series, that moment is here at last thanks to the brand new YouTube trailer for "The Hangover Part III."
The Wolfpack is back, baby! Get More »
