    Review: 'The Hangover Part II' Is A Lazy, Unpleasant & Unfunny Mess

    Unlike most of the summer movies, which seem to be thundering into theaters without any real anticipation beyond the cacophonous marketing hype, "The Hangover Part II" seems to be a film people are unreasonably excited for.

    Watch: Full Trailer For 'Mr. Popper's Penguins,' Plus New Clips From 'The Hangover Part II'

    Plus 2 Clips From 'Submarine' & TV Spots From 'Horrible Bosses'Another day, another batch of video footage goodness from upcoming comedy releases. Although goodness may be a stretch when it comes to the most substantial: the full trailer for the Jim Carrey vehicle "Mr. Popper's Penguins." A loose adaptation of the children's book classic, with "Mean Girls" director Mark Waters at the helm, the teaser didn't exactly look hugely promising, and if anything the full length version is worse, showing Carrey sleepwalking through the exact same dad-who-neglects-his-kids-because-he-works-too-hard beats as he was fifteen years ago in "Liar Liar." Just ...

    "It Happened Again": New TV Spots For 'The Hangover Part II' Bring Back The Wolfpack

    While the terrible first trailer for "The Hangover Part II" underlined in thick black Sharpie how similar the premise was for the sequel to the original -- to the point of making it seem like a half-baked, cash-in knock-off -- how weird is it that the TV spots are beginning to restore our faith a bi...
