Better than “The Hangover Part II,” but equally as useless, “The Hangover Part III” plays more like a caper film than an outright comedy. The Wolfpack is back, but the focus is on Zack Galifianakis’ character, Alan, a horrible creation who is better in smaller doses than the ones we are fed here.
Boos for Takashi Miike's "Shield of Straw," a muddled "Blind Detective" from Johnnie To and Paolo Sorrentino's "The Great Beauty" lives up to its name.
Jerry Lewis returns to Cannes in a starring role in Daniel Noah's "Max Rose," which proves once again — as "The King of Comedy" did — that Lewis can deliver a nuanced serious performance.

Today the American Pavilion remembered Roger Ebert with a panel and beachfront thumbs-up salute.
The destruction of Vulcan, one of the most crucial planets in the "Star Trek" universe, should be at the core of J.J. Abrams’ "Trek" movies.
