About five minutes ago, I finished watching The Hangover (2009) for the first time. This movie wasn’t the funniest movie I’ve seen, but it was one of the best written comedies. It is creative, not generic.
If you haven’t seen it, here’s a brief summary: 4 guys go to Vegas for a bachelor party, get really drunk/drugged, wake up with a lot of weird stuff, realize the groom is missing, and have to figure it out from there… It was really cleverly written. The acting was really good, especially from Zach Galifianakis (Alan). (You’ll know him when you seem him.) There is quite a bit of language and one naked Chinese guy (Ken Jeong, Community), but all in all, this movie was hilarious.
This movie runs 100 minutes and is rated R. DO NOT show this to kids, it will screw them up. I give it 8 ramheads out of 10 for a creative screenplay and because it was really funny.
