IF MAKING "The Campaign" didn't engender sympathy in Will Ferrell and Zach Galifianakis for political candidates, their promotional tour surely did. The two comics jetted to 11 cities in a week, stopping for photo-ops and fake news conferences, on the stump for their new comedy about warring candidates for a North Carolina Senate seat. A small taste of what presidential candidates are required to do — dozens of counties, hundreds of cities, followed by bee-swarms of journos looking for the next malapropism.

SOMETIMES the line between hero and zero is razor-thin. Or so it seems on television, where unshaven sidekicks - popularly known as Bearded Best Friends - have lately become a must-have accessory for sitcom leading men. For this we can probably blame Zach Galifianakis, whose characters in "The Hangover" and HBO's "Bored to Death" blazed a trail for his hairy brethren. In some ways, it's just a replay of the old Rhoda-Mary dynamic, where "The Mary Tyler Moore Show" had Valerie Harper playing a character who was presented as funnier but just enough less attractive than her best friend, Mary, to make it clear whose name was on the show.

Sure, people are watching movies on tablets and smartphones, on their couches, streaming video on demand. But maybe there's another reason box office is down dramatically (summer biz dropped 25 percent from the same period in 2013). Call it the Dys Factor, as in dys topian post-apocalyptic young-adult sci-fi, as in dys functional family comedies, as in you're showing me dys movie - again? In March, Divergent , Neil Burger's adaptation of Veronica Roth's YA novel, opened in theaters, with Shailene Woodley as the heroine living in a frayed, futuristic Chicago where what's left of society is divided into five factions, and where every year the kids who come of age are tested for assignment to a group and a vocation.

AS SOON as Tattle saw that President Obama was guesting on Zach Galifianakis ' goofy Funny or Die Web show "Between Two Ferns," it was quite clear the president's critics would have a field day with his appearance, even if many of them would ask the same questions Zach did: When you leave office, will your presidential library be in Hawaii or Kenya? During the recent Winter Olympics, which country were you rooting for? But the funny six-minute bit, which turned into a commercial for HealthCare.gov, seems to have accomplished its goal, getting more young people in Funny or Die's target demo to think about health care.

Guys get blotto. . . . wake up and can't remember what happened the night before. . . . madness ensues. So goes the premise of 2009's The Hangover and its 2011 sequel, but the post-binge amnesia idea is jettisoned in The Hangover Part III . Make no mistake, there's still plenty of madness (whether it's funny or not is another question), but director Todd Phillips, back to hammer the nails in the coffin of his hit franchise, has opted to make a kind of gangland kidnapping action thriller instead.

THE REAL-LIFE wolfpack behind the "Hangover" movies is a strange one - no alpha males. So says Ken Jeong, who credits his career surge to the generosity of his "Hangover" co-stars - over the years, they've encouraged his Mr. Chow to take an ever-larger role in the story, culminating with the character's centerpiece role in the series' finale. "Chow basically takes his place in the third movie as the devil. And in order for the wolfpack to move on with their lives, they have to dance with the devil," says Jeong, whose Chow is typically the dominant character in any "Hangover" sequence.
