I'll just go ahead and start this review by saying I'm glad this will be the last movie in the Hangover franchise. At this point, they really should have stopped after the first. Hangover 3 is not worth your money or your time. It pains me to say that given my affection for the first one. Part 2 was lame but at least they tried. I don't think any of them even cared about Part 3.
Hangover 3 breaks away from the theme that made the franchise so popular in the first place. There's no crazy, wild night that the guys have to try to remember in order to solve their dilema. A Las Vegas "gangster" of sorts kidnaps Doug forcing the wolfpack to hunt down Chow. And that's pretty much it. They spend the next hour or so trying to catch Chow, who somehow continues to find ways to evade them. There's no, "How did I get this tattoo on my face," or, "What's in your pockets?" I don't think anyone even has a drink in the whole film.
Hangover 3 is not funny. I barely laughed through the entire movie. I remember sitting in the theater listening to the audience, wondering if I missed something, but no one was laughing. There were a few cheap laughs but not enough to make it worth a visit to the theater. The best part of the whole movie comes after the credits. There's a short clip that is by far the funniest moment (that's not saying much). If you end up sticking around through the whole movie, make sure you stay to see it. I'm sure that scene will be on the DVD, though.
Generally speaking, I hate cats. There have been a few over the years that have come close to changing my opinion on the species, though. This one would have a shot at making me a cat lover. This little guy spends all day with his owner, but in a very unique way. His owner is a bike messenger and MJ the cat rides on his shoulder. That must take some serious balance.
The minute I clicked "save" on last week's episode, I received David Nail's new single in my inbox. I almost scrapped the episode and started over just because I wanted to share it with you all so bad. I opted to hold off for a week, but it was not easy. You'll get to hear "Whatever She's Got" this week. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. This one is going to be an absolute smash this summer. I've also dug up some great new tracks from the Cody Bryan Band, Andy Gibson and Jana Kramer just to name a few. I hope you enjoy!
1) Jana Kramer - I Hope It Rains
2) David Nail - Whatever She's Got
3) Trace Adkins feat Colbie Caillat - Watch The World End
4) Andy Gibson - Best Thing
5) Sawyer Brown - Shadows of the Heartland
6) Darius Rucker feat Sheryl Crow - Love Without You
7) Cody Bryan Band - If I'm Going Nowhere
8) Gwen Sebastian - Suitcase
9) Tobacco Rd Band feat Colt Ford - That's Country
9) Gretchen Wilson - Still Rollin'
This video doesn't need much set up. It's a time lapse video of the tornado that ripped through Moore, OK yesterday. I could not imagine being anywhere near that when it happened.
Note to all of you chivalrous types...Apparently, you shouldn't try to shield your wife from an oncoming home run ball. This guy thought he was protecting his wife and she repayed him by pouring her beer all over his head. He probably wasn't very happy about it, but I'm sure glad the cameras caught it.
