The Hangover

On the eve of his wedding a bridegroom and his three groomsman go to Las Vegas for his buck's party that goes well and truly off the rails.

Hollywood seems to be fixated with crass, politically incorrect men's humour at the moment most of them with a connection to Seth Rogen or Judd Apatow and this is the latest to roll off the production line although as far as I am aware neither of them is involved.

For reasons not that apparent to me the creators of The Hangover miss no opportunities to show men in their underwear, or bare arsed or urinating. None of those images was particularly tittilating; not for this gay man anyway.

Despite the general silliness and mostly illogical aspects of the storyline I have to admit that I laughed a lot in this film.

  1. It's basic cinema, the kind where you don't have to think, just laugh at the misfortune of others. Not bad really. I found the storyline gappy and of course knowing me the weirdo, bearded guy was kinda hot. I'm just saying... no need to mock me for my strange perversions.

    I like think of it as a diet Fear And Loathing In Las Vegas
