*** out of ****     Now, I may know a couple comedies like it, and I may not love it, but I'm pretty darn sure that "The Hangover" has all the ingredients needed to add up to a pretty funny comedy. It's not ridiculously brilliant in what it says, and it's not the most intelligent humor out there, but if you give the thing a chance, then maybe, just maybe, you will laugh.    There are several crowds for movies like "The Hangover"; one smart, one dumb, and one …

A Pleasant surprise
I remember seeing the trailer for The Hangover. First thing I said was “great another stupid comedy”. You gotta understand though the last movie I saw like this was Dude where’s my car? And although it had some funny moments the majority of it was really stupid. How it happened I don’t know but somehow I found myself in the theater and saw flick and now I’m happy I did.       The Hangover is about a group of friends (Allan, Doug, Phil and Stu) …

I don't think this is the funniest movie ever made, but The Hangover is certainly the funniest movie I've seen in a good long while and is good enough to call a comedy classic. This was probably one of the, if not the, biggest surprise of 2009 and boy did it take the world by storm. In fact, it took the world by storm so badly that I wish people would stop quoting it because, even though the quotes are funny, it's been done and it's getting tiring. Regardless, The Hangover was a …

Raunchy comedies come and go, and I was definitely expecting the Hangover to be exactly the same. Boy was I blown away, I literally could not stop laughing throughout the movie. Not all movies have to be deep, the purpose of some is to entertain, not educate, and this movie is definitely one of them. Not only is it sufficiently raunchy and funny, but it definitely won't be forgotten anytime soon.      Firstly, the chemistry between Ed Helms, Bradley Cooper, Zach Galifianakis, …

   My husband and I found this movie to be very hilarious. What I like about its basically one movie that goes from one crazy event to another. Yet it doesn't loose it's focus on its main plot and also knows to find the time to work on its characters as well. The characters are all being handled and build-up well into the movie. It's the same type of comedy approach Director Phillips used earlier for movies such as "Road Trip" and "Old School". Todd Phillips knows how …

The Hangover  was a hilarious move filled with fun-filled joy at Vegas. This movie itself was created to be the "guys only" movie. This movie was definitely added a sense of mystery in order to find their buddy that was going to be married after their "night" in Vegas. I also thought that the main characters played so close to believability that it was easy to get into the craziness of their situations. I like how this one is set up as …

I usually refuse to pay the ridiculous $14 to see a movie like The Hangover in theatres. These typical comedy movies are all the same - jokes about sex, drugs, and alcohol. Yeah, they usually provide a good laugh, but never $14 worth.     From the previews and trailers, The Hangover, looked just like another rowdy comedy movie. Four friends roadtrip to Vegas two days before one of them is getting married. Typical. But instead of depicting the crazy things these four (obviously …

The Hangover Poster
I've never really been into raunchy and crude humor.  For example, I couldn't stand Half Baked or Pineapple Express.  These are your typical "stoner" films that get laughs mainly due to the fact that when your wathing them, you don't know any better.  As much as The Hangover could have turned into a "stoner" movie, it didn't.  It could have easily been a film geared at teenagers and college students, but instead, it really ended up being a very adult film with extremely adult …

I cant think of a movie with more hype around it in quite awhile. I feel like this was the movie that dominated and suprised us all. The acting is hysterical, and the jokes, although slapstick in lots of cases, come fast and furious. Often, a comedy is only funny the first time or two, until you know what is coming to you- this movie however, can be watched over and over!  Although NOT a movie to watch with your grandmother, great for a group of friends. …

This movie was one of the best works of comedy in recent memory. Many times, we find our self cracking up literally line-for-line. Zach Galifianakis is priceless, and this role was definitely a breakthrough performance for him. Aside from the buckets of humor, we also see a bit of a character study as well. Each of these fine gentlemen are able to change themselves for the better. The resolution does leave a bit to be desired, however the journey was more than worth it. The closing credits aren't …

Hilarious movie!!! Some scenes are offensive. This is a movie that makes you want to go to Vegas to see its beautiful hotels. This gives women a sneak peak of what may go on behind "bachelor parties."

Chekov left MANY guns in the room that night.
Every commercial I saw for this tour de farce had the SAME joke in it, the nerdy henpecked pushover of the group is wondering while looking in a mirror-while it is clear to everyone watching..."Am I missing a tooth?!"  If this was the best joke that the movie could throw at us, I would only have myself to blame if I saw this movie and was let down by it.      The Hangover is nothing new.  Four cliches; a straight man, an asshole, the pushover and the …

The first genuinely great comedy in years. The pains the writers went to in order to explain the "day after" setup was hilarious. Fantastic cast too.

...stupidity, vulgarity, and the enjoyment of cruelty. If well-filmed, well-paced, fairly original ugliness, stupidity, vulgarity, and the enjoyment of cruelty is "your thing", you'll find plenty to like about The Hangover. Three obnoxious narcissists and one hapless dimwit go to Las Vegas for a Bachelor Blast on the eve of the most innocuous narcissist's wedding. The dimwit inadvertently drugs all four with a particularly potent form of GHB and three of the four wake up the next morning with no …

The Hangover is worthy of all the hype and praise. I couldn't believe how hilarious this movie was. Bradley Cooper was the perfect fit for his role. It's like he IS his character. The only problem I had with this film was the nudity, but other than that thiis movie will always be one of my favorites!

Since I heard that The Hangover was THE movie of the summer..I was really excited walking into the theater because I saw the trailers and thought that this movie was absolutely amazing, so I could only think like what the entire film would be like...and it DOES NOT dissapoint. For most of the movie, this is your standard vulgar comedy that tosses out decency in favor of something way more indecent...and often times these films work very well (if the Box Office performance is any indication). The …

   It is about time that we see Bradley Cooper as a leading man, he has performed so well in comedies like Wet Hot American Summer, Wedding Crashers and last year's Yes Man with Jim Carrey. On the other hand his co-stars of Ed Helms and Zach Galifianakis perform better than most of the familiar comedy genre faces. This movie was already held with high expectations before it was released, but those expectations have truly been met and surpassed altogether. Now at first I was hesitant, …

Fun premise that isn't mined for all it's worth where 4 men enter Las Vegas and only 3 wake up and must find the 4th.

A laugh that was well needed, I haven't seen a really good comedy in a while and this was a much needed GREAT movie. The storyline was a bit odd at the end of course if they made it more elaborate it would've been a longer movie, but it's not doubt one of the best movies I've seen of the year. I really liked how this movie wasn't a censored movie, and that it wasn't one of those movies that seem exaggerated acting. I also liked how the actors actually looked …

This movie is beyond funny and the culture of it just made the whole thing funny and amusing to the audience.

Solid comedy. However, it is meant for and should be viewed by the college+ crowd and not teenagers.
