Teaser trailer released for ‘The Hangover Part II’… Let the anticipation begin

24 02 2011

In 2009, ‘The Hangover’ was arguably one of the best comedies of the past decade.

Now, with the upcoming sequel ‘The Hangover Part II’ set to drop on May 26th, the first look at the new movie was released today.

A teaser trailer was put up on YouTube… and it seems that some serious shenanigans are going down in Bangkok following the wedding of Ed Helms’ character, Stu.

It even looks like Mike Tyson’s presence will indeed be felt on one of our protaganists’ face again, but this time, it won’t be via a right hook to Zach Galifianakis’ dome, it’ll be to Ed Helms’ face with Tyson’s iconic and moronic facial tattoo right around the left eye.

However, as much as I hate to say it, with all the ridiculously high expectations, I think The Hangover 2 is bound to be a disappointment. It’s extremely hard to top what the original did.

Mike Tyson’s great cameo and sucker punch of Zach Galifianakis.

Ken Jeong’s hilarious naked performance and great one-liners.

Basically all the crazy sh*t that happened… it all was too good and too funny.

I mean how can you top that?

I hope I’m wrong but either way, I’m forking out some cash to see it.

Cedar Rapids: Best comedy since ‘The Hangover’

21 02 2011

It was a super rainy Saturday, and since I had nothing to do, I went to go see Cedar Rapids up in Scottsdale. The previews looked funny and I had read good reviews on Rotten Tomatoes, so I figured I might as well throw out 7 bucks and have a good laugh.

I thought the movie would be funny, but god damn it was hilarious.

Ed Helms plays the role of Tim Lippe, a small town insurance agent who has never left his hometown of Brown Valley, Wisconsin. He has to travel to Cedar Rapids for an annual insurance convention to try to win his agency the prestigious Two Diamond Award.

What ensues over the movie’s 86-minute duration is plenty of laughs and great performances from Helms and John C. Reilly, who plays the wild and crazy Dean Ziegler. The movie was casted to perfection, and for working on only an $8 million budget, Cedar Rapids definitely outdid itself.

I can’t think of a better comedy since ‘The Hangover’ came out in the middle of 2009, which also had Ed Helms in it.

For the record, I plan on seeing it at least once more.

If you’re looking for a great laugh, Cedar Rapids is your winner. There wasn’t a dull moment and trust me, you won’t regret chucking out a couple bills for admission.
