Nobody really wants to attend their school reunion. Nobody, except for maybe Dan Landsman (Jack Black), who is the self-appointed head of the school reunion committee. After slogging through days of rejections, Dan is beginning to believe that no one is going to come to the 20th Anniversary reunion for their high school - that is, until he turns on the television and sees Oliver Lawless (James Marsden). Lawless, a once popular student, is now a relatively successful actor, and Dan believes that getting him to attend the reunion will convince everyone else to come along. But when he meets up with Lawless for the first time in twenty years, something goes wrong. Lawless is going to attend the reunion, and it is on track to be a massive success, but Dan no longer feels so good about it.

Amazon Studios has confirmed itself as a major contender in Hollywood after its signature series Transparent won the Golden Globe for best comedy and its star Jeffrey Tambor was named best actor on Sunday (January 11, 2014).

'Transparent' is a rising star in the TV world - could it be the next big thing?
Amazon Studios has ordered a second season of Jill Soloway's comedy Transparent, starring Jeffrey Tambor as a transgendered parent in Los Angeles. The show is officially the most "binge-watched" show on Amazon's Prime Instant Video, with almost 80% of viewers having watched two or more episodes in the same day, according to the company.
Jeffrey Tambor stars in Amazon's 'Transparent'
Fans won't have to wait too long for the second instalment, with production slated to begin soon and a release expected in 2015.

A new Amazon series is now available online, with Jeffrey Tambor as an ageing parent battling gender dysphoria.
Potentially one of the most important dramas to ever hit the internet is now being aired on Amazon Prime. Starring Jeffrey Tambor as a recently un-closeted transgender parent, 'Transparent' presents a heart-warming story of identity, love and acceptance.
Jeffrey Tambor in a very different kind of acting role
Tambor (known for his roles in 'Arrested Development' and 'The Hangover') takes on what could be the most challenging role of his career in 'Transparent'. The series depicts a loving parent named Maura Pfefferman - formerly known as Mort - who has decided after 70-years-old of living that she can no longer dress like the man she physically appears to be. In a brave move, she begins to transform herself into a woman, though it breaks her heart to see her beloved children so shocked and confused. Meanwhile, it seems she's not the only one who has been keeping secrets, and she's certainly not the only one battling inner demons.
This might be the most controversial 'Law & Order' episode yet.
Some might question the appropriateness of a Law & Order: SVU episode for tackling Paula Deen’s racism scandal, not to mention the sore topic of the Trayvon Martin case. Still, the rather mixed up storyline has been given the go-ahead. In the upcoming episode, Cybill Shepherd will play Jolene Castille, a celebrity chef (they’re really throwing subtlety out the window on this one, people), who shoots and kills a black teenager in a hoodie on the upper West Side. And here’s the kicker: Jolene shoots, because she believes she’s being pursued by a rapist. The character claims self-defense because she knew the detectives were after a rapist who fit the description, according to TV Guide.
Paula Deen's racism scandal is clearly referenced, but in a rather troubling context.
So, let’s review: Paula Deen reference: check. Trayvon Martin reference: check. Rape fears used as plot device: once again, check. It sounds like the episode, also starring Arrested Development’s Jeffrey Tambor as Jolene Castille’s defence lawyer and Smash’s Leslie Odom Jr. as, wait for it…a minister. While the topics of rape and racism (not always separately) have once again become hot button, divisive issues in the US, the show seems to be reducing them to one-episode story arcs. According to an interview with Entertainment Weekly, however, the writers actually intended for this to be a divisive, controversial episode.
Alan Garner is going through real emotional trauma when his beloved father passes away. Following the funeral, his friends Stu, Phil and Doug decide to take him back to Las Vegas to recuperate with the hope that previous experience and lack of upcoming weddings will prevent them from getting into any major trouble again with gangs or escaped wild animals. However, that hope is soon shattered when they are jumped by a brutal gang who demand to know where they can find their flamboyant gangster friend Leslie Chow who has allegedly stole $21 million dollars. As expected, the Wolfpack end up in enormous, but hilarious, trouble yet again which leads them to question their friendship ties and vacation choices. Will the foursome survive Sin City this time round? And will Alan find the peace he's looking for?
The Wolfpack returns in the last instalment of this side-splitting trilogy. Academy Award nominated director Todd Phillips ('Road Trip', 'Due Date') returns once more with the co-writer from 'Part II', Craig Mazin ('Identity Thief', 'Superhero Movie', 'Scary Movie 4'). It looks to be a spectacular end to the film series as the foursome's previous alcohol-fuelled vacations come back to haunt them. It is scheduled for release in UK cinemas on May 24th 2013.
Stu, Phil, Alan and Doug return to Las Vegas in the hilarious third instalment of 'The Hangover' movie series. Nobody's getting married this time, but if you think the absence of a bachelor party will calm this lot down, you are so wrong. Following the events of 'The Hangover' which saw them get attacked by gangsters, mauled by a tiger, tasered by cops and inadvertently married, and of course the events of 'The Hangover Part II' which took them to Thailand where they got tattooed, shot by Russian mobsters and had sex with transgender hookers, the conclusion to this trilogy doesn't look to fare much better as these wild boys set out for one last mayhem-fuelled weekend in Sin City.
