The British Broadcasting Corporation sat down with the three leads from The Hangover franchise and talked about Kickstarter. This matters for two reasons: 1) The premiere online crowd-funding platform is amidst a complicated cultural moment — good for Zach Braff and Veronica Mars; bad for everyone else — requiring more discussion, not less; and 2) Bradley Cooper has no idea what Kickstarter is. To be fair, he’s an actor. Acting is his job. Knowing about stuff, or stuff.com, is not.

In a culture saturated by best and worst lists, it’s easy to fall into the trap of labeling everything you see either “brilliant” or “awful.” Sometimes, though, entertainment is solidly middle-of-the-road — and that was certainly the case with Zach Galifianakis’s third SNL hosting stint. It never soared to the heights of his first few outings, but it was a solidly funny night that featured a few inspired moments — and, perhaps more importantly, only one outright clunker of a sketch. That’s a pretty good batting average as far as Saturday Night Live goes.
The night got off to a slow start with another Fox & Friends cold open. As funny as Bobby Moynihan’s dumber-than-dirt commentator can be — I loved how he thinks the “W” in WNBA stands for “worse” — the sketch itself is the very definition of low-hanging fruit (“hey, those guys on Fox News sure are conservative!”). And if the funniest thing about a bit is the stream of one-liners that quickly scrolls by as it ends, it may be time to reevaluate the rest of what’s happening onscreen.
But when Galifianakis actually took the stage, he set the tone for a night that would be kookier and more surreal than the average SNL installment — if not generally funnier. READ FULL STORY
The Hangover Part III finally has a trailer. Judging from the footage, it’s about three friends — one handsome (Bradley Cooper), one short (Ed Helms), and one fat (Zach Galifianakis) — who all go to a funeral and then to Las Vegas, where they walk through a dark hallway before watching John Goodman shoot someone. Later, a giraffe gets decapitated. Before that, Galifianakis appears to make Melissa McCarthy cry with a lollipop.
What is The Hangover Part III really about? Plot details have been sealed tight, but we do know that the three amigos gather around Galifianakis’ Alan after the death of his father. Plus one of them will probably touch a penis.
