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 »
WARNING: Somewhat NSFW.
Once upon a time (read: the '80s), movie fans could count on the fact that at some point, someone in the movie would randomly drop trou or rip off their shirt for no apparent reason whatsoever. And frankly, it was great. After all, why worry about things like plot or character development when you can have some good old-fashioned gratuitous nudity instead? Get More »
So, you thought "The Hangover" was all boobs, babies, and bananapants adventures a group of pals? Well, you thought wrong. You may think of Zach Galifianakis, Bradley Cooper, and Ed Helms' "Wolfpack" as the center of a record-breaking comedy best known for its dirty, twisted humor that sent comedy-seekers to the theaters in droves — think again.

Times change, styles change, technology changes. But in Hollywood, some things are timeless: A cool movie is still a cool movie and a star is still a star.
That's the takeaway from the fantastic array of new retro-posters from artist Peter Stults, who has taken some of today's biggest hits — "The Hangover," "Avatar" and "Inception" among them — and revealed what they might have looked like if they had been filmed with the stars of yesterday.
And they look pretty awesome. Get More »
"Man, let's go see a movie! You know, the one where a bunch of bros go out to celebrate another bro's milestone. Madness, shots, nudity and general hijinks follow! Laugh riot!"
"Yeah, dude! 'The Hangover' was so great, wasn't it?"
"No, I was talking about '21 and Over.'"

Okay, so here's a movie pitch for you: Take a group of mismatched friends, send them out for an evening of drunken revelry and then watch the hilarity ensue when they try to figure out just what the heck they did. Guaranteed hit, right?
But we're not describing the plot of "The Hangover" — we're actually describing the plot of the upcoming teen comedy "21 and Over," which is basically exactly like "The Hangover" except, you know, with college students in it.
"21 and Over" is hardly the first film to blantly remake another movie, book or play for a teenage crowd; it's actually a longstanding tradition in Hollywood. So in honor of "21 and Over's" brazen replication, here's a closer look at it and six other films like it. Get More »
The road trip movie: It's one of Hollywood's most sacred institutions. What other subgenre offers so many golden opportunities for rural stereotyping, rest stop potty humor and hot-boxing scenes?
But you know what can be frustrating about road trip flicks? We don't always know where those jaunts start and end.
In honor of Seth Rogen and Barbra Streisand embarking on "The Guilt Trip," we've laid out the routes of 20 movie road trips in one handy map. You know, in case you get lost or something. Get More »

Bradley Cooper is exceptional at playing the cool jerk that viewers can't help but love.
In "The Hangover" and "The Hangover Part II," his character Phil Wenneck is "that guy," the former high school football star-type women still swoon over. It's hard to imagine Cooper not always being a Phil Wenneck, even in real life.
But Cooper is not "that guy." He's just good at acting like it. His earnest grilling of Sean Penn on "Inside the Actors Studio" when he was 23 proves that, as does "Silver Linings Playbook" and his feature-film debut: 2001's "Wet Hot American Summer." Get More »
Why did the buffalo cross the road? Somehow, it's because a bunch of university co-eds got hammered.
Behold the first trailer for the newest brainchild of "The Hangover" writers Jon Lucas and Scott Moore.
Co-written and directed by the duo, "21 and Over" stars Justin Chon ("Twilight") as a straight and narrow pre-med student whose buddies — Skylar Astin ("Pitch Perfect") and Miles Teller ("Project X," "Footloose") — are bound and determined to make him celebrate his 21st birthday in properly debaucherous form.
