First thing's first. While I don't think it's remotely close to the funniest thing ever, I do think it's a huge improvement on "The Hangover Part II", which was an embarrassment. It (Part III) was, for lack of a better term, enjoyable.

I'm comparing this to how you or I get paid, which I assume is something along the lines of once every two weeks.
How do NFL players get paid? Is their guaranteed money written at a lump sum on the league's new year? Do they get 16 game checks that are equally divided from their guaranteed yearly...

We better sniff around Smiff's cage. I know Sean Payton loves him in homoerotic ways, so it's good enough for me. If the Saints want to go all in to maximize Drew Brees' final years, let him throw to someone like Steve Smith for at least two.
This is all predicated on the assumption that Smith ca...

First off, Sam Rockwell. Then Chirstopher Walken. And Collin Farrell.
I think there's subtle brilliance in the dialogue of the movie. Especially at the end in the desert. I won't spoil it, but I just love how the characters react to things, little things, that normal people like you and I would.
