The Hangover

The Hangover

Funniest Film in Ages - Keith C

8 Points

Viewer Rating:Keith C has rated The Hangover rating: 4 Star

When I saw the trailer for this first of all, I wasn't too convinced, just another Stag gone wrong movie with a hint of Dude Wheres My Car but How wrong was I? This is the funniest thing I've seen in years. Rather than go throught the whole things go wrong as they go wrong, the approach is the lads discovering what they got up to on a night not to forget, (or remember in this case!). As the guys wake up after a night of debauchery in a hotel room, thats thrashed with a chicken, a baby and a tiger but no groom, they struggle to piece together what happened the night before. The idea helps to suck the audience in as everyone has woken up with a "oh my God, what did I do last night?" only now its ramped up and put on speed! As they struggle from one situation to another, things start to unfold with hilarious consequences. With some even plausible siuations unfolding. The clever thing with this movie is that while its occasionally crass it doesn't resort to fart gags but gives the audience something to relate to. Theres great interation between the characters with all of the leads getting great gags, if there had to be a standout, it would be Galifianakis, who plays his idiot savant deadpan with some great lines, Heather Graham was slightly underused but a minor gripe in an excellent movie. Guarantee you'll come out with grin on your face. Stick around for the funniest credits since Tom Cruise danced his way through the ending of Tropic Thunder and keep a close eye out for a nod back to Old School.
