Movie Reviews

An art auction employee (James McAvoy) is the inside man in the theft of a Goya, but gets conked on the head and can’t remember where he stashed it.

Another accounting office-mandated second sequel. But perhaps “sequel” is not the right term, since the first two were essentially the same, frat-friendly, retracing-our-drunken-steps movie.
