The Hangover part III – Movie Review

Last week I went to the movies with one of my best friends Brian. I really wanted to see The Hangover part III and after a nice dinner made by Brian we went to the new movie theater in the city we live in: Vlaardingen.

I think most people have seen at least one Hangover movie. I mean, even my parents have. I totally love the first movie but the second one didn’t really entertain me, so I was kinda sceptic about this third part. But: THE MOVIE IS AMAZING!!

What’s it about? Phil, Stu, Doug, and Alan have been friends for a very long time and of course (as you can see in The Hangover I & II) they have experienced some stuff together they can only share with each other since it’s just too incredible.  “The Wolfpack” (Phil, Stu, Doug and Alan) is kinda falling apart after all the things they had to go through because they don’t want more drama. However, drama seems to be their middle names. After the death of Alan’s father the Wolfpack and Alan’s family convince Alan to go to rehab because he’s been out of control. Phil, Stu and Doug promise to take him to the rehab in Arizona; a long and quiet trip until they get kidnapped. Mob leader Marshall tells them that Leslie Chow, the creator of drama, escaped from prison. Apparently Chow stole Marshall’s gold, which is worth $21 million and Phil, Stu and Alan have to get it back. If they don’t find the gold and Mr. Chow within 3 days Doug will be killed. Against everybody’s expectations (they should’ve known better though) Alan still communicates with Chow every now and then and he sets up a meeting with the fugitive. And that’s the beginning of a freaking funny movie. THEY’RE GOING BACK TO LAS VEGAS!

I’m not gonna tell more about the story, because you just gotta see it! It’s hilarious.
‘C’est domage’ that Doug doesn’t really appear in the adventure but I didn’t really miss him. Mr. Chow is my all time favorite. He is so sneaky and funny at the same time. How can you hate a guy who jumps completely high off Caesar’s Palace with a parachute?
In the beginning there’s this cute giraffe and later on 2 dogs and some roosters. Well, let’s just say that if you’re an animal lover you just gotta close your eyes a couple of times.

I can’t believe this is the last The Hangover movie. I think they could’ve done a better job promoting the movie in The Netherlands. I just don’t want it to be over :p.
I still love The Hangover I the most, but this movie really is a badass finale!

I’d give this movie a 9 out of 10. I freaking love it!

Movie review: easy A

My aunt told me I just had to see this hilarious movie. And she was right. 

In easy A Olive Penderghast (Emma Stone) lies to everyone. After she tells her best friend Rhiannon she slept with a college guy, her friend Brandon comes up to her and asks if she wants to sleep with him so he can become popular. She knows he’s gay so she trusts him with her secret that she’s still a virgin. He’s totally cool with that and together they decide to fake his very first time at a party. It’s a huge success and Olive’s glad she could help Brandon. What she didn’t expect was a range of ‘customers’. Desperate guy after desperate guy ask her if they can fake kiss her or pretend to have sex with her in exchange for money or gift cards. Olive agrees and her new business is born. Of course it’s getting out of hand. Rhiannon doesn’t talk to her anymore, the strictly religious Marianne (Amanda Bynes) tries to ‘save’ her and everyone at school thinks of her as the new hot skank in town who’s spreading chlamydia. Olive decides to embrace her new self and stiches a big red A on her new, sexy clothes. Things get worse but fortunately her parents believe in her and her old crush Todd (Penn Badgley. Woohoo, Gossip Girl’s cute little Dan!) tells her he doesn’t believe a thing about the rumors. Olive and her mom come up with a plan to confess what she’s done: At a school pep rally she sings a song where she refers to her web page. At this page people can see her webcam posts where she tells the truth and nothing but the truth about the past months. Of course Todd tells Olive he likes her, because it’s still just an entertaining movie. But he, the rest of the story was actually really fun!

I’d give this movie a 7,5 out of 10. 
I think Emma Stone did a fantastic job playing Olive. I love her lisping voice and funny faces. She’s hot but not ordinary beautiful. I laughed so many times during this movie, because Olive really is a funny person. Or maybe it’s just Emma who embraced Olive and made her rock. Olive’s parents are hilarious. Todd’s cute, Rhiannon’s annoying and I should give some credits to Amanda Bynes who plays Marianne really good.
Anyway, if you wanna enjoy a fun, not too difficult movie you should watch easy A!

Facts: The movie came out in 2010. Written by Bert Royal, directed by Will Gluck and starring Emma Stone, Penn Badgley, Amanda Bynes and others.
