War Dogs could’ve been better but as it is, the performances by Jonah Hill and Miles Teller were solid, as was Bradley Cooper’s brief role, yet the story never quite hit its mark for me. At the very least, it is worth a rental.

The Hangover Part III by definition as unnecessary but despite two cruel scenes as well as some scenes that just didn’t hit the mark, I still enjoyed this sequel although I’m not sure if it’s because it’s actually funny or if it’s relative to the fact Part II was a complete rehash of the first sans laughs. In any case, I’m not giving this a glowing review for the obvious reasons however it is at least worth a rental.

Due Date was a slight disappointment only because Robert Downey Jr. has been on such a role with the Iron Man movies and Sherlock Holmes where he showed just how damn funny he is, but here I thought his character was a bit too much of a douche coupled with Galifianakis who came across as too obnoxious making for a double whammy of annoyance. The film does have some funny moments and although Jamie Foxx’s cameo is a bit of waste, I still give the film at least a moderate recommendation if only to see the two stars face off with one another.
