If you’ve seen the trailer for The Hangover Part II, then you’ve seen most of the funniest bits in the movie. Except for a chain smoking monkey and a bit more use of male genitalia for shock value, most of the rest of the movie is recycled from the first film.
The central conceit of Limitless is this: what would happen if there was a drug that could literally allow a person to use 100% of their brain? According to current scientific belief, we only use 10-20%, maximum.
Eddie Morra [Bradley Cooper] is a struggling writer. He hasn’t written a word of his novel, but he’s spent his entire advance and is, essentially, living on the avails of his girlfriend, Lindy [Abbie Cornish] – who has had enough. Now, bereft of income and girlfriend, he runs into his ex-brother-in-law, Vernon [Johnny Wentworth], a disreputable sort who has graduated from selling drugs – as we know them – to something called NZT. NZT enables its user to fully utilize their brain. There, are of course, side effects.

Relativity Media’s Limitless opens Friday. Check out the trailer following the jump.
We all know the story – even the shortest TV spot gives us the spine of it – the Alpha, or A-Team is set up whilst on a covert ops mission and court-martialed for a crime they didn’t commit, so they break out of prison to clear their names and nail the person[s] responsible for the frame. Sounds simple, probably because it is.
This is the part where I’d admit to being just a little bit ashamed [if I wasn’t so darned shameless]: The A-Team is bereft of anything even remotely approaching story or character development; it is nothing more than an excuse to brawl and shoot and blow stuff up real good; the pacing barely ever deviates from frenetic [and when it dials down, it only drops to furious] and, yes, the headline quote from former-Colonel Hannibal Smith [Liam Neeson] accurately describes the flick [and make no mistake, this a flick – not a film, not a movie – a flick]. And I enjoyed it.
Industry sources close to the Warner Brothers/DC Comics planned production of a movie based on the DC comic hero The Green Lantern are saying that Ryan Reynolds has signed a deal to take on the lead role. Reynolds is no stranger to playing comic book action heroes having starred as Deadpool in the recently released Wolverine movie.
Other contenders for the role of Hal Jordan/The Green Lantern are Justin Timberlake and Bradley Cooper, with Cooper leading the ranks in online fan choice polls.
Ryan Reynolds, a busy young actor, is already set to star in “Buried,” a dark indie drama that will begin filming shortly in Barcelona with Spanish director Rodrigo Cortes. Reynolds will play a civilian contractor who is kidnapped in Iraq and awakes in a coffin, struggling against time to coordinate a rescue even though he doesn’t know where he’s buried in the desert.
It looks like the new Warner Brothers Green Lantern movie is heating up. The Hollywood Reporter is saying that the suits have narrowed the field down to three – Justin Timberlake, Ryan Reynolds and Bradley Cooper to play the Emerald Hero, Hal Jordan. I never understood why it took this long for Warner Brothers to get behind a Green Lantern film. It seems like it’d be an “easy” film to make due to the fact that his powers are all based on being able to create constructs out of light and the very concept of Green Lantern is that it’s a police Corps, granted the story centers on Earth’s protector Hal Jordon, but theoretically any film version didn’t necessarily have to be about Hal Jordan.
They could have used any number of Green Lanterns like John Stuart (whose black), Guy Gardner, or created their own character and still remain true to the source material. I would put Vegas style money on the idea that they’ll go with Bradley Cooper. Ryan Reynolds already has a Super Hero movie in Deadpool, Justin Timberlake while being pretty good as an actor doesn’t really fit the part. Who is Bradley Cooper? He was in the surprise summer hit, The Hangover, one of the stars of Nip/Tuck, and is in the upcoming A-Team.

This smartly done comedy about five women and four men trying to sort out the signals that the sexes exchange has an all star cast line up. Gigi (Ginnifer Goodwin) who imagines every man she meets is Mr. Right gets her reality checks from her guy friend Alex (Justin Long), a sweet but cynical bar owner. Janine (Jennifer Connelly) and Ben (Bradley Cooper) seem solidly married until he chats with Anna (Scarlett Johansson) in a market checkout line; meanwhile Anna is indifferent to the pursing Connor. Neil (Ben Affleck) and Beth (Jennifer Aniston) have been together seven years; she dumps him when she realizes he really and truly isn’t going to marry her. Does he love her? And Mary (Drew Barrymore) sells advertising while searching on line for a man. Will those in love stay in love? Will those searching figure out who is and who isn’t into them? Are men all that different from women?
If you’re familiar with the phrase, “What Happens in Vegas, Stays in Vegas?”, then this movie is right for you. Imagine that you are on the eve of getting married and your best friends treat you to a weekend in Sin City. You & your friends decided to get a suite at one of Vegas’s famous casinos. Then, you do a toast to celebrate your last night as a bachelor. Then the next morning, everything that can go wrong, has gone wrong. The hotel room is trashed beyond recognization. You’re sleeping on the floor. One of your friends is missing a tooth. A baby is in the closet. Finally, you found a bengal tiger in your bathroom.
If you’ve seen the ubiquitous trailer and TV spots for The Hangover, you’ve seen several of the movie’s high spots – tiger in the bathroom; am I missing a tooth; is that a baby; Mike Tyson air-drumming to Phil Collins – but, and you can trust me on this, they comprise the tip of the iceberg that is one weird, twisted and even trippy comedy.
We’ve seen all these characters before – the nerdy dentist with the shrewish girlfriend; the inappropriate fat guy; the schoolteacher who’s about as mature as his students and yet happily married; the slightly uptight groom-to-be – but we’ve never seen them from quite this angle before.
The set up is so simple – three guys take a groom-to-be to Vegas for his bachelor party… a night to remember. Then, the three wake up with no memory of the previous night; their hotel suite… sorry, villa… is a shambles, and the groom is missing!
Beyond the clips in the trailer, anything I might want to use as an example of the high FQ [Funny Quotient!!!] of this film might spoil whole chains of events, so I’ll simply tell you that Todd Phillips, director of Old School, has found a terrific script [by John Lucas and Scott Moore] and done right by it.
Bradley Cooper [Phil, the schoolteacher], Ed Helms [Stu, the dentist] and Zack Galifinakis [Alan, the brother-in-law to be – and a bit of a savant] are in the best form of their respective careers. Somehow, they make these stereotypes both sympathetic and hysterically funny. Justin Bartha [Doug, the groom-to-be] is both a solid straight man/victim of circumstance and funny when the script demands it of him.
The extremely good supporting cast includes, among others, Jeffrey Tambor [the very knowing father-in-law-to-be], Sasha Baresse [Tracy, the bride-to-be], Rachel Harris [Melissa, the shrew], Heather Graham [Jade], and Ken Jeong [Mr. Chow]. The gags range from polite to “OMIGAWD!!! Did you see/hear that???” – and the set up is as funny as the rest of the movie. Stay for the credits – there is a montage that tells us exactly what happened in those hours that have, mercifully it turns out, been erased from the guys’ memories…
Final Grade: A
Eclipse Review by Sheldon Wiebe
Posted June 5, 2009
Two friends and one soon to be brother-in-law decide to take their pal out for his bachelor party in illustrious Las Vegas two days before the wedding. Upon waking up the morning after, the hotel suite they stayed in is trashed, a few unexpected houseguests appear, the groom is missing, and no one can remember a thing.
I’m very happy to see the return of the R-rated, smart comedies. I’ve enjoyed movies like Wedding Crashers, Role Models, Old School, etc., and for fans of those films, The Hangover will most likely one day find a spot in your collection right next to them.
