Topic: the hangover

Due Date

Not 'The Hangover,' but still good!


Comedy

Rod Lott
Todd Phillips' "Due Date" had the rather unfortunate position of being his follow-up to "The Hangover," the Golden Globe-winning critical smash that ended up being the highest-grossing R-rated comedy in the history of cinema.

Cedar Rapids

Ed Helms becomes a bona fide movie star in the funny, sweet ‘Cedar Rapids.’


Comedy

Phil Bacharach
Stories of apple-cheeked innocents corrupted by the big, bad world are as old as the dawn of curfew. So when a comedy comes along like “Cedar Rapids,” in which the apple-cheeked innocent is a nerdy man and the big, bad world takes the form of an insurance agents’ convention, it’s not likely to break new ground.

Blackest blight

Which is worse: the movie or the cap?

Online T-shirt shop ROCKWORLDEAST (whose PR peeps swear up and down that the company name really is written in unappealing all caps) recently released its top five items for the summer. Amid the usual music-oriented tops (Misfits, Wiz Khalifa, Grateful Dead) are two movie-merchandise wearables.


One is a shirt featuring Zach Galifianakis’ character from “The Hangover” films, above the line, “That’s classic.”

Unfortunately, the other is this flat-brim hat featuring Green Lantern. Woe be to the teen or tween who tries to wear this at my dinner table, much less bring into my house. —Rod Lott

“Son of Morning” is so poorly executed, it did not deserve to see the light of day. Its opening scenes of quirkiness are endearing until its story dawns.
