Summer Movie Preview
Just returned from seeing The Hangover. Overall the movie wasn’t bad, but the script didn’t really live up to the craziness of the antics going on. Thankfully Ed Helms and Zach Galifianakis were there to even out the subpar deliveries from Bradley Cooper and Justin Bartha. The biggest laughs in the crowd definitely came in the closing credits.
Worse, though, were the trailers for a taste of what’s on tap for the summer:
- Orphan - an adopted innocent young girl gone batshit crazy, terrorizing and murdering her family
- The Goods: Live Hard, Sell Hard – Jeremy Piven as a used car salesman with sales pitches that just weren’t funny
- The Ugly Truth – chick flick with Gerard Butler teaching Katherine Heigl how to pick up guys, and (shocker!) they eventually fall for each other
Not a lot to be excited about there. The only bright spot was Bruno, which everyone already knows will be a hoot. As a side note, an interesting article here about Sacha Baron Cohen.
