The Hangover

How do three grown men (well, actually 4) get so drunk that none of them remember the night before? That was my first thought when seeing the trailer for the Hangover. It is answered in the movie and it does make great sense. I should have guessed it.

How do you top Old School's lightning in a bottle of bawdy comedy? You put together a team of guys who have been steadily gaining steam over the years. Bradley Cooper: Wet Hot American Summer. Need I say more? Don't remember him? He gets buggered by Michael Ian Black in the sport shed. Midnight Meat Train? Terrible title; pretty bad movie, pretty good gore. He's the best thing about it (Vinnie Jones coming in second). 

Ed Helms? Jumping from the Daily Show to what was basically the Dwight of Stamford's branch and making the character his own. At this point, you don't remember a time when the 'Nard Dog was not on the show. That's impressive.

Zach. Oh Zach. Who let the dogs out indeed? Anyone remember his talk show on Vh1? I remember the commercials, does that count?

It comes out next week. Go see it if you find yourself at the picture place.

Did you enjoy it?

Would you see it in theaters again?

Would you rent it?

Would you buy it?

Would you watch it if you saw it was on TV?
Yes. It remains to be seen at what point this movie will stop being funny to me.
