I am a big comedy fan, but lately I have been highly disappointed with Hollywood's take on the genre. However, The Hangover is a breath of fresh air, in an ocean of bad and cheesy comedies. It is genuinely funny! And what I like most is the fact that you need to watch the entire thing, in order to know how it's going to end (this is a quality most movies lack nowadays).
The dialog is hilarious, the four lads are all so wonderfully weird and twisted, the plot is full of suspense and when you think you've seen it all, something bigger and badder happens.
It's a really great movie!

There was not allot of great comedy films out in 2009, THE HANGOVER is certainly the best. Lots of genuine laugh out loud moments and stupid silly antics that the cast get into! Lots of very good features on the disc too for your money.

So, three guys on a stag party in Vegas wake up the morning after the night before with a tiger in the bathroom, no memory of the previous night and no groom. They start trying to track back through the previous night in an attempt to find the unfortunate groom and save the wedding day.

It's a great premise, and the method of revealing their actions to us and the characters through a series of oddball encounters is an interesting one that gives this a fresh feel. You feel as though you are stumbling around in the dark with them.

It has some funny set pieces, but I have to say that I found a lot of the film puerile, filled with that running around screaming for no apparent reason that seems to be mistaken for comedy more and more these days. Many of the situations are too cringingly embarrassing to watch. But there are some great moments, with genuinely hilarious touches. And the film is worth watching just for the cabaret singer at the end - he seems to be a Sinatra wannabe channelling the Mighty Boosh's Bob Fossil.

In all three stars. An OK watch, but uneven with some really funny bits mixed with some totally unfunny stretches, all with a decent premise and an interesting story telling method.

Well, this was a couple of notches less special than I had been expecting. I had read several private and professional reviews and my expectations were pretty high, but very little in the film managed to live up to the hype.

It's not exactly a road movie, simply four guys going to Vegas for a bachelor weekend (or a stag night as we would call it here) and inevitably getting into trouble. Although the night itself isn't shown, one thing that's not in question is that all four of them got very drunk and the next day can't rememember what happened - and one of them is missing: the groom, no less. So he has to be found in order to get him to the church on time.

There are some moments that made me chuckle, quite a few to be fair, but I thought it was going to be hilarious and it was never quite that. In fact, the comedy elements were underplayed if anything, and the film as a whole was as much of a drama, maybe even a suspense mystery at times, and this was a constant surprise. Not as big a surprise however as the absence of any moments that made me holler with laughter. And I was ready to do just that, indeed I was expecting it. The main four characters probably had the ability to do it, but the script didn't allow them to. Some of the peripheral characters, notably the Chinese gangsters, were just camp and let down the good work put in by the main players.

I've heard this film being described as one of the funniest films of 2009. If that's true - and it might be for all I know - then standards must be slipping. Actually, the Madagascar 2 DVD was released in 2009, and I can say without hesitation that it was a whole lot funnier than Hangover, even if it is a whole lot different.

I originally watched The Hangover ages ago.... By chance I noticed it on Blu-Ray and decided to purchase it.

What can I say?

One of my favourite films.... EVER!

Fortunately I rented "The Hangover" and accordingly it didn't cost me very much to discover that it is, for the most part, a boneheaded romp in which a number of actors well into their thirties, possibly even their forties, mucked about like teenagers. Was it an ironic take on the American comedy genre or an extremely sophisticated post modern analysis of Hollywood mores? No, it was largely infantile movie and it was acutely embarrassing to see grownups behaving like twerps.
