Todd Phillips's THE HANGOVER Gets A Knockout Of A Teaser Trailer!

Published at: March 5, 2009, 10:09 p.m. CST

Beaks here...

I don't know how much I'm allowed to say about Todd Phillips's THE HANGOVER right now, but since they've spoiled the film's best cameo in the brand new teaser trailer, I guess I can say that I got to meet that particular gentleman on set and... I should probably stop there. He was really nice, though. I also got to chat with the film's three stars - Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms and Zach Galifianakis - and feel fairly convinced that they'll be every bit as memorable an ensemble as the OLD SCHOOL trio. We already know that the film has tested well. I guess we'll just have to wait until June 5th to find out if Phillips has conquered the Vegas comedy curse. (BTW, I don't know if there is a Vegas comedy curse; I just know that I watched WHAT HAPPENS IN VEGAS on PPV one depressingly lonely night, and haven't gone east of Primm ever since.)

    by supercowbell4therequestformorecowbell

    but the trailer couldve been funnier. it most likely is r rated so the red band will be where its at.

    This is a good script...

    by geraldbeans

    but this trailer sucked. Too short. Doesn't really get across what the story is about. Boo to the trailer creators of this. Bad trailer creators.

    Whats wrong with Very Bad Things?

    That's pretty funny movie.

    Zach Galifianakis Must love Vegas

    by Series7

    He was in that What Happens in Vegas. He's pretty funny this looks good. Really like Bradley Cooper too he was good in Midnight Meat Train. One of the few good horror movies to come out in a while.

  • March 6, 2009, 1:30 a.m. CST

    Anyone know where you can watch

    by Series7

    Frat House??? I've seen Hated and really liked that I want to see what the deal behind Frat House is.

    galifianakis...

    by Juror Number 8

    is one of the best comics working today. it's too bad all of the parts he gets offered are in terrible movies (like what happens in vegas). when given a good script like into the wild, which is his only film credit that isn't an complete piece of shit, he really shines. i really hope this script does him justice. high hopes for this one.

  • March 6, 2009, 1:32 a.m. CST

    Also I was hoping for a

    by Series7

    Phil Collins cameo that'd be a lot funnier.

  • March 6, 2009, 2:51 a.m. CST

    that looks hilarious.

    by BadMrWonka

    I will have words with anyone who says otherwise. go on...try me.

  • March 6, 2009, 4:32 a.m. CST

    Well, the part with the baby and the car door was funny.

    by DerLanghaarige

    Apart from that, it wasn't too funny. It doesn't look like it will suck, but it doesn't look too laugh-out-loud either. I wonder if the baby hitting something is a running gag and in one scene it gets punched by Mike Tyson.

    Everything looks like shit. He's five hours away from marrying an uptight bitch who's out of his league?! Heaven forbid! I hope he meets a cool stripper who likes comic books!

    Yes, Rapists Are LOL

    by christian66

    They should have Tyson's victim in the film to bring on more chuckles. Saw the trailer before WM and it started interesting then got into the typical American dunderhead zone of "Oh, he got hit in the head!" "Oh, somebody punched out!" Rapists and beatdowns - modern US comedy gold!

  • March 9, 2009, 1:27 p.m. CST

    Todd Phillips...

    by christian66

    ...has become the very thing he depicted in FRAT HOUSE -- which I saw at SXSW years ago. What a tool.
