Amanda Seyfried will play opposite Adam Driver and Josh Hutcherson will produce and star in an upcoming thriller.

When The Hangover was released in 2009, nobody was expecting much from the comedy starring three under-the-radar actors — which is exactly why the surprisingly hilarious and original film took the world by storm and killed it at the box office. Fast-forward four years, and we're upon the release of The Hangover Part III, which suffers from the opposite effect. The film is highly anticipated by fans hoping to re-create the magic of the original (and forget Part II), but aside from a few sporadic laughs, the film is another disappointing installment in a franchise that should have quit while it was ahead.
I have to give some credit to director Todd Phillips, who at least tried to go in a new direction with Part III. The "what happened last night?" formula showcased in the first two films is left behind this time, favoring a straight plotline centered on Alan (Zach Galifianakis) hitting rock bottom and the Wolfpack setting off on a road trip to get him to rehab. You don't need me to tell you that the plan goes terribly awry when Doug (Justin Bartha) is taken hostage and the guys are tasked with tracking down the elusive Mr. Chow (Ken Jeong). What you may not expect is that the story is so uneven that I actually found myself missing all the blacked-out-drunken drama. Without that element, it feels like one of the characters is missing from the movie.

Arrested Development returns this Sunday when the fourth season of the former Fox show will debut on Netflix. Considering that it's been nearly seven years since the series was on the air, some fans may have forgotten about the show's key episodes and funny moments. Luckily, we've put together a guide of the top five episodes you should revisit before you start streaming the new season. All of the show's episodes are currently on Netflix, so there are no excuses for missing out on these funny moments!
"Afternoon Delight" (season two, episode six)
Why it's a standout: This is an all-around great episode, but it is perhaps most notable because it gives birth to Gob's "Come on!" recurring joke. George Sr. leaves his collection of designer suits to Gob, who is acting as the president for the Bluth Company, and dressing up in luxury fabrics goes straight to Gob's head. He starts to mock his employees, telling one, "Oh, yeah. The guy in the $4,000 suit is holding the elevator for a guy who doesn't make that in three months. Come on!" And thus, a meme is born.
Other notable moments: Gob wears a banana suit for the company's second Christmas party, Michael and Maeby learn that they should read the lyrics to Starland Vocal Band's "Afternoon Delight" before singing it at a company karaoke event, and Lucille inadvertently eats a pot brownie and runs over the banana stand.
Even if The Hangover Part III doesn't live up to expectations, there's no denying that Bradley Cooper still provides some pretty sweet eye candy. The sexy actor is reprising his role as Phil, the member of the wolfpack who rocks a pair of aviators like you wouldn't believe. Just in case you need a reminder of how much hotness Cooper brings to the Hangover movies, we have you covered with 20 photos of him scorching the screen in The Hangover Part III.
For many of us, Memorial Day weekend means a day off work for barbecues and some beach time. For others (like myself), it means time to hang on the couch. This Memorial Day weekend provides some especially great options, including the premiere of HBO's long-awaited Before the Candelabra. There's also a Veronica Mars marathon, IFC's Arrested Development marathon on Saturday ahead of the new season's release, and don't forget about Mad Men on Sunday!
Take a look at all the networks' marathons, and plan your schedule after the jump.

The promise of Michael Douglas and Matt Damon playing lovers — not a burning fascination with Liberace's life — will probably entice most people to watch HBO's Behind the Candelabra. But if you do tune in, then you'll find yourself intrigued by the flamboyant performer's story. After a few minutes of seeing Douglas in a pompadour wig and stage makeup, you'll forget it's him playing Liberace. And Damon's evolution from innocent farm boy to drugged-up Liberace lover and stage prop is subtly stunning. If you plan to watch when it airs Sunday at 9 p.m., then here's what to expect from Steven Soderbergh's look behind Liberace's famous candelabra. Just keep reading.
