In 2009, Todd Phillips and co. had a surprise smash hit with “The Hangover”, a movie about three men who awaken from a night of blackout drinking to find they’ve lost one of their friends. They then have to recreate the events of the night before in order to retrace their steps and find their friend. In 2011, Todd Phillips and co. had another smash hit with “The Hangover Part II”, a movie about three men who awaken from a night of blackout drinking to find they’ve lost one of their friends. They then have to recreate the events of the night before in order to retrace their steps and find their friend.
“Part II” was widely criticized for being a regurgitation of the first film. It was nearly a note for note facsimile, and critics punished it accordingly. In response, Phillips and co. pledged “The Hangover Part III” would not be “the same old thing”. Instead, they made a movie that has little to do with anything fans love about the first two films.
No drunken debauchery, no blackout, no “Hangover”.
Worst of all, few to no laughs.

Dr Seuss’ “The Lorax” is a charming and unique animated movie. Patterned after the inimitable stylings of Dr Seuss, the visual world of the Lorax is beautiful to behold. Colorful, charming, idiosyncratic… it has a fresh and appealing creative vision to offer audiences.
The story within
may be a little slow for today’s children, but it’s got charisma and humor to spare. At times it comes dangerously close to being preachy with its environmentalist, anti-capitalist messages… but overall it’s an entertaining family film that feels original and unique amongst the annual onslaught of animated offerings.
