THE HANGOVER PART III BY CHRISTOPHER HASKELLMAY 23, 2013 I remember my first experience with the original “The Hangover” from Todd Phillips. For some reason, I had missed most of the advertisements and was walking into the theater with zero expectations. And I ended up laughing hysterically, along with the rest of the packed theater.

THE LORAX BY CHRISTOPHER HASKELLMARCH 29, 2013 Pointedly agreed, “The Lorax” lacks the wit and charm of Dr. Seuss, but what it lacks in personality, it makes up for with humor and production value.

“The Hangover Part II” basically feels like a mad lib created from the original. Making a film sequel in exactly the same way as the original is not healthy for a franchise and I feel like Todd Phillips will learn that with “The Hangover Part II”. With the same exact format, same cast, and attempt at the same general humor, the portions of the film that do stray from the original fall flat and uninspiring. A film that was widely admired for its distinct originality turns the page and completely copies everything it portrayed in the original, losing most of my respect in the process.
“The Hangover” is unafraid to go places and that is what comedy is made of. It plays the line between hilarity and raunch better than any comedy in recent history and after multiple viewings, the film still holds most of its original appeal. Though the hype may have killed its original glory, for me, the film will always have a special place in my heart and will always be high on my list of best comedy films ever.
