Three big movies are opening up this week to make sure there’s something for everyone this holiday weekend.
“Hangover III” is the final chapter in the saga of the Wolf Pack, with Ed Helms, Bradley Cooper, and Zach Galifianakis making many more bad decisions. Heather Graham and Ken Jeong return. And a CGI giraffe loses his head.
“Fast and Furious 6” is a sensitive coming of age story based on an acclaimed novel. Oh, who am I kidding. It’s more cars, more fights, more chases. Vin Diesel, Paul Walker, Jordana Brewster, and Michelle Rodriguez are back. Yes, Rodriguez’s character was killed in an earlier episode, but logic and consistency have always been a low priority in these films. Fortunately, the priority is the cars, fights, and chases, and they look great.
And we even have a film without a number in the title. The animation whiz kids behind the “Ice Age” series are presenting “epic” (small letter “e”), a big story about tiny creatures, and it looks adorable.
