The Hangover Part III
The Wolfpack is back. And this time they don't need a bachelor party to spur shocking shenanigans and maniacal mayhem. All they need is to be charged by a gangster—who kidnaps Doug of course—to find the wily Mr. Chow! Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms, and Zach Galifianakis star; Todd Phillips directs.
If you want to fill your holiday weekend with comedies made for more "mature" audiences, try this trio of late night laffers. Whether its for wildly politically incorrect one-liners, outlandish sexual humor, or some deeply deranged protagonists, each of these titles well deserves their R-rating.
Bachelorette (2012) Adapted by writer-director Leslye Headland from her play of the same name, this ballsy comedy is all about bridesmaids from hell. Kirsten Dunst stars as Regan a psychotic overachiever who is filled with rage when her overweight gal pal (Rebel Wilson) gets engaged, and makes her the maid of honor. Still, Regan tries to fulfill her wedding obligations to their fullest, even when a drug-fueled reunion with her party animal best friends (Lizzy Caplan and Isla Fisher) threatens to derail the bride's perfect day. Cocaine, strippers, and some real drama moments make this comedy even racier than The Hangover or Bridesmaids. Andrew Rannells, James Marsden, and Adam Scott co-star.
The Dictator (2012) Sacha Baron Cohen leaves his pranking antics behind for this political satire that has him playing despotic General Aladeen, dictator of the Republic of Wadiya. When an American operative strips this tyrant of his trademark beard and set him loose on the streets of New York City, Aladeen finds unexpected help from a kind-hearted co-op manager played by Anna Faris. But even she can't curb the insanity of the racist, sexist, megalomaniac despot. Ben Kingsley and Jason Mantzoukas co-star; Larry Charles directs.
The Inbetweeners Movie (2011) A movie spinoff of the celebrated Britcom follows the show's four dopey friends on a summer vacation to Crete. Will, Jay, Neil, and Simon hope to have a debauchery filled getaway fueled by booze and sexual conquests. But a location change doesn't make these blokes any smoother with the ladies, and the results are hilarious. Not familiar with the show The Inbetweeners? Hilarious seasons one and two are now streaming.
