In the wake of a lawsuit filed by Mike Tyson's tattoo artist, Warner Brothers has announced that they will likely alter the Tyson-like ink that Ed Helms sports on his face in The Hangover Part II for the movie's DVD release later this year. Which got us thinking -- what other digital alterations would we like to see made to recent films? Thanks to the magic of computer technology, we can fix some key problems and -- who knows? -- maybe make a better movie in the bargain.
The reviews are in for The Hangover's sequel, and they're pretty brutal across the board. I read a few of them before I went to the movie last night so I was expecting a boring, lazy, unfunny re-hash of the first movie - basically just a pointless cash-grab of a film. And while Part II certainly has its faults -- the ending is a laughable throw-away, there's a date rape bit that was ill-advised, and Alan's shtick flounces between hilarious and irritatingly Michael-Scott-at-his-worst stupid, to name a few -- I honestly laughed a lot and genuinely enjoyed the movie overall. The majority of critics clearly disagree with me, but here are the reasons that I think The Hangover Part II is much more watchable than it's being made out to be.
