the hangover 3

The Hangover franchise has all the rigidity of a slasher movie series—you know exactly what’s going to happen each time you go in.  The “wolf pack” will be brought together via some kind of narrative contrivance.  Then, something will go awry, and the group of friends will be sent to some semi-exotic vacation locale and go on a series of wacky misadventures until everything is set right again.  Oh, and there will be some kind of notorious celebrity cameo, and a zoo animal will show up at some point.

Well, the full trailer for The Hangover III is now available, and it lays out the whole plot for us. Read more the review here: http://bit.ly/10ZW6XJ

It’s all pretty rote, but Galifianakis and Jeong get some funny moments.  More than anything else, simply enjoy that this trailer signifies the final Hangover film.  At least until it makes a ton of money and another one is released, then another one.

The Hangover III is set for a May 24th release.

Check it out in the player below!The film stars Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms, Zach Galifianakis, Ken Jeong, Heather Graham, Jeffrey Tambor, Justin Bartha, John Goodman, Sasha Barrese, Gillian Vigman and Jamie Chung.The Hangover Part III is the third and final film in director Todd Phillips’ record-shattering comedy franchise.

How To Cure a Hangover

_hangover2imagebandd

Now you’ve done it and it’s official, you have a hangover. Now what? No matter what you do sleep and water or juice should be included. There are many folk cures that are supposed to help cure a hangover. Many of them will help you cope by replenishing the vitamins and liquid you lost over night, while some like avoiding caffeine are very important to a quicker recovery. There is no one size fits all cure, find what works for you but the list below is a good place to start. There are also a few suggestions from readers who found their own way to cope.
Difficulty: Hard
Time Required: As long as it takes to feel better.

Here’s How:

  1. Sleep. Rest is your best friend at this point to give your body a recover. It is best to stay in bed so call in to work if you have to, tell them you have the stomach flu. You will sound so horrible on the phone that they may believe you (unless they saw you at the bar, then it is not a good idea).
  2. Replenish your body with fruit or vegetable juice and water.
  3. Avoid caffeine. A weak cup of coffee may be okay but a lot of caffeine will continue to dehydrate you, the opposite of what you want right now.
  4. Drink orange juice for Vitamin C.
  5. Eat mineral and protein rich food, even if you don’t feel like it.
  6. In Poland, drinking pickle juice is a common remedy. Barbara Rolek, About.com Guide to Eastern European Food, has more Hangover Food suggestions from this region.
  7. Drink a Bloody Mary. While the popular phrase “hair of the dog that bit you” may sound logical with a shot of whiskey left in the bottle next to your bed, it’s only temporary. Try a Bloody Mary instead, while your blood is dealing with the new alcohol it is ignoring the old and in the mean time tomato juice and celery are full of replenishing vitamins. If you drank the last of the vodka make a Virgin Mary or Bloody Maria.Other spicy morning after drink options are Hair of the Dog, in which gin and hot sauce are sure to bite your hangover back, and the Carrot & Cilantro Cooler, another vitamin packed savory drink. Yet another classic option (sans spice) are the aptly named Corpse Reviver drinks: #1 (brandy)#2 (gin)#2011.
  8. Take a shower, switching between cold and hot water.
  9. Try Alka Seltzer Morning Relief. One reader says that it’s all that he and his wife have found that really works for them. He stumbled across this “cure” while his wife was still suffering after two days, within 15 minutes after taking the Alka Seltzer she was fine.
  10. Get some exercise. Another reader suggests doing some sort of physical activity. He writes, “In the rare case of having hangover I usually drink about 1-2 liters of water and go outside to do some exercise like mountain climbing, swimming, cycling or just about anything that keeps me sweating.” It takes willpower to move like that when standing seems like a challenge, but it is a good theory.
  11. The side effects of aspirin, Tylenol and ibuprofen can be magnified when alcohol is in your system, so it is best (even though it may be the first thing you reach for) to avoid them to kill the hangover pain. Aspirin is a blood thinner, just like alcohol, and can intensify its effects and Tylenol (or acetaminophen) can cause more damage to your liver. Ibuprofen can also cause stomach bleeding. So be cautious when going for the quick relief.
  12. Watch the video: Hangover Remedies. Jonathan Stewart demonstrates how to make a blended hangover remedy. There are a more than a few ingredients so you may want to have everything organized prior to overindulging.
  13. As an antidote, one reader takes a little extra multi B vitamin and drinks a lot of water before going to sleep.
  14. In Ireland it was said that the cure for a hangover is to bury the ailing person up to the neck in moist river sand.

From ‘A Christmas Story‘ to ‘The Hangover‘: TheWrap’s 2012 Guide to Essential Holiday Viewing

With the holidays upon us, you’re going to have a lot of time on your hands — that is, when you’re not busy shopping, traveling, entertaining guests, reveling and recovering from said revelry.

What better way to kill off the abundance of downtime than by plopping yourself in front of the television for some fine, holiday-themed programming? Herewith, TheWrap presents your best viewing bets this year. (Where times aren’t noted, please check your local listings.)

MARATHONS

ABC Family‘s 25 Days of Christmas: ABC Family is the network equivalent of your overzealous aunt who starts her Christmas shopping in June. For its annual “25 Days of Christmas” extravaganza, the network began running nonstop holiday programming on Dec. 1. You’d be insane to try to have taken it all in. But Christmas Eve, when the network airs such classics as “The Santa Clause” trilogy, “Home Alone” and “National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation,” is as good an entry point as any.

The Hallmark ChannelEvery day is Christmas at the Hallmark Channel, which is pretty much running continuous holiday programming this time of year. It includes “A Bride for Christmas,” “Matchmaker Santa,” “A Christmas Wedding Tail,” and “A Princess for Christmas.”

DEC. 24

“A Christmas Story”: TBS’s 24-hour marathon of the 1983 comedy (beginning at 8/7c Christmas Eve) is a cherished annual tradition for millions. If you’re not one of them, you should probably consider shooting your eye out with a Red Ryder BB gun.

“Christmas With the Mormon Tabernacle Choir Featuring Jane Seymour and Nathan Gunn”: Tired of punks like Michael Buble and Blake Shelton clogging up the airwaves with their holiday musical specials? Allow the Mormon Tabernacle Choir to rock you gently with some boss tunes on PBS.

“Christmas Eve at St. Peter’s Basilica in Rome”: Once upon a time, back before retailers began setting up their Christmas displays in August, the holiday used to be about something more than rampant consumerism. Let NBC take you back to that long-gone time at 11:34/10:34c.

“Pawn Stars”: A History Channel is airing 20 consecutive hours of “Pawn Stars,” which started at 8/7c this morning. Because what better way of reminding yourself how far the holidays are putting you in hock?

Tom and Jerry: A Nutcracker Tale“:Want to get an animated start to your Christmas? Cartoon Network will air this yuletide offering, featuring the famous cat and mouse, plus “Abominable Christmas, “Scooby Doo!: Haunted Holidays” and “The Smurfs: A Christmas Carol” over three hours beginning at 3:30/2:30c.

DEC. 25

“Doctor Who: The Snowmen”: Matt Smith helps celebrate the holiday in particularly twisted fashion with the “Doctor Who” Christmas special “The Snowmen,” which features the Doctor doing battle with an army of pointy-toothed snowmen. The special airs at 9 p.m. on BBC America. As a bonus, the network will run a “Doctor Who” marathon starting at 8/7c.

How the Grinch Stole Christmas!He’s a mean one, that Mr. Grinch — but he’s been enthralling audiences ever since the 1966 release of this animated Dr. Seuss adaptation. And with good reason — directed by master animator Chuck Jones and featuring Boris Karloff in one of his final roles, this is one of the more enduring Christmas specials going. And going. It’s on ABC at 8/7c.

“Bad Santa”: Admit it — as much as you love the spirit of the holidays, Billy Bob Thornton’s portrayal of a drinking, thieving, fornicating shopping-mall Kris Kringle never fails to bring a smile to your face. On Comedy Central at 6 p.m.

DEC. 31

Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve With With Ryan Seacrest”: If you insist on staying in and avoiding the crowds this New Year’s Eve, your best bet for at least some semblance of revelry is this annual ball-dropping ceremony, which this year features performances from serial dater Taylor Swift and “Call Me Maybe” sensation Carly Rae Jepsen. The festivities officially kick off at 10 p.m. on ABC, but they’ll be preceded by the special “New Year’s Rockin’ Eve Celebrates Dick Clark” at 8. It’s the next-best thing to actually gathering with your fellow human beings.

New Year’s Eve With Carson Daly“: Of course, Carson Daly’s nice, too. Well-groomed. An easy smile. Probably smells faintly of lilacs. He’s never done anything to offend you. And you like his show “The Voice,” don’t you? You’re not some kind of freak, are you? (On NBC at 10 p.m.)

“The Walking Dead”: Then again, if you’re feeling especially misanthropic, AMC is airing a marathon of the first half of season 3 of “The Walking Dead”, beginning at 9/8c. It’s a good way to ring in the New Year with fantasies of humanity being all but wiped out by an army of marauding zombies. Chances are, if you watch the whole thing, you’ll end up feeling a little zombified yourself.

JAN. 1

“Tournament of Roses Parade”: The pageantry! The tradition! The roses! NBC and ABC will both be airing Pasadena’s crowning moment at 11 a.m., when flowers pretend to be other things as they roll through the street. Plus, this way, you don’t have to camp out on the sidewalk all night to watch it, like some fools do.

“The Hangover”: If you’ve celebrated New Year’s Eve too aggressively, chances are you’ll be feeling pretty sluggish the next day. The ability to perform such tasks as sitting upright will elude you, as will your memory of the previous night’s events. As you nurse a recuperative Bloody Mary and ponder the mystery of who installed shag carpeting on your tongue while you were asleep, use whatever remaining energy you have to click over to TBS, where Bradley Cooper, Zach Galifianakis and the rest of the “Hangover” over-imbibers will make you feel relatively temperate. “The Hangover” will air four times, beginning at 11/10c.

Ken Jeong as Mr. Chow in ‘The Hangover Part III’

___hangover-3-ken-jeong-570x302

Merely the news that The Hangover Part III won’t have the plot format as its predecessors gives the threequel a heads-up on Part II (and The Wolfpack’s all-too-familiar shenanigans therein). Instead, Phil, Stu and Alan are hitting the road for a wild trip that includes pig-masked bandits, psychotic Mr. Chow (Ken Jeong) dressed (disguised?) as an officer of the law – and the scene of their first booze-fueled crimes, Las Vegas.

New official images from Hangover 3.0 tease The Wolfpack heading back to Sin City, as well as the (even-more) armed and dangerous Mr. Chow. Meanwhile, director Todd Phillips has spilled some additional details about the film; including, whose funeral The Wolfpack was attending in previously-released set photos.

The Wolfpack in Las Vegas in ‘The Hangover Part III’

___hangover-3-vegas-570x400

Here’s what Phillips offered EW about the third installment:

“The Hangover Part III is Alan’s story. He’s going through a crisis after the death of his father, [and] the Wolfpack is all he has.”

Those with good memories might remember Galifianakis mentioning last year thatHangover Part III sees Alan’s buddies freeing him from a mental institution. Until further notice, it remains possible that Alan could indeed suffer a breakdown – following his father’s passing – that lands him in confinement; not to mention, sees The Wolfpack on a crazy adventure that takes them to Los AngelesTijuana and eventually Vegas after (to quote the EW report) “something from the first movie comes back to haunt them.”

While the Vegas image from Hangover 3 isn’t exactly enlightening (Abbey Road reference aside), the latter photo reveals a Mr. Chow who’s “darker than ever,”according to Phillips. Jeong – who likewise went fully-insane on the third season ofCommunity – will appear alongside John Goodman as a new antagonist, with returning players Mike Tyson and Heather Graham as heart-of-gold stripper Jade from the first film. (Is she what “comes back to haunt” The Wolfpack?)

Lastly, Phillips describes the movie as ‘‘a fitting end to this three-part opera of mayhem and bad decisions.” Do you agree, based on what we’ve learned so far?

The Hangover Part III opens in theaters on May 24th, 2013.
