'Hangover' Flashback: Ed Helms Brings His Mom

A good Hangover movie is filled with antics of drinking, drugs, and debauchery, which as Ed Helms realized at the premiere of The Hangover Part II, is not exactly the kind of thing you want to witness with your mom.
The Office actor who really came into prominence after the success of the first Hangover confessed to ET that, "there's a couple moments during the movie where I'm probably going to try and distract my mom."
Zach Galifianakis, who plays the lovable, if socially challenged Alan in the franchise, echoed Helms sentiment on bringing the woman who raised him.
"Not a good move. Not a good move."
Helms wasn't the only star who brought his mom that night. Co-star Bradley Cooper didn't leave his mother at home either. Unlike Helms, however, Bradley wasn't worried about offending her.
"We broke my mom in with Wet Hot American Summer."
Bradley's referring of course to his first big role, the 2002 comedy that featured profanity, nudity, and probably served as a fine desensitization flick for his proud mother.
Still, one can't imagine The Hangover Part II doesn't give Wet Hot a run for its money.
Watch the video above for more from the premiere, including Ken Jeong talking about Mr. Chow being his favorite role, Iron Man star Robert Downey Jr. praising the film despite its "highly perverse nature," and the gang's hindsight-proven successful plot to make Bradley Cooper People's sexiest man alive.
The Hangover Part III hits theaters on May 24, 2013.
