It's happened to all of us: you wake up with no memory in a hotel room with a missing tooth, someone's baby, and Mike Tyson's tiger. Such is the appeal of the "Hangover" movies, the third of which opens on May 24 -- their excruciatingly apt and funny recreation of the universal experience of morning after amnesia and/or regrets.
There's a whole genre of such films-- which, excluding those in the "Hangover" series itself, do you think are the best?

If you ever wanted to see Hermione Granger bask in the glory of bottle service, the upcoming Sofia Coppola flick might be the place to do. The teaser trailer for "The Bling Ring" was released and shows Emma Watson slathering on the lip gloss, getting down in the club, and of course, ransacking the closets of the rich and famous with her fellow label-loving L.A. friends. Watson plays a character inspired by "Bling Ring" member, Alexis Neiers, who goes by the name "Nicki" in the film.
The film is based on Vanity Fair's profile of the crimes of Hollywood's Bling Ring, a group of teens who robbed the homes of the likes of Paris Hilton, Orlando Bloom and Miranda Kerr, Lindsay Lohan, and Rachel Bilson in 2008-2009. According to the profile, they primarily stole designer goods and cash to the tune of more than $3 million and were tried for their various crimes in 2010.
Coppola's film faced scrutiny when it was revealed in December that members of the Ring and members of the LAPD who had assisted in the investigation were on payroll to consult for the movie.
The film will be in limited release June 14.
