I realize that this review is long overdue because The Hangover was released in theaters in June, but I was never very interested. I heard a lot of talk and praise over the past couple of months and I just had to check it out for myself. I must say, I wasn’t whewed. Don’t get me wrong, I found the movie quite hilarious and I plan to watch it many times in the future it was a damn funny comedy, but that’s all it was.
It wasn’t incredibly funny where I found myself laughing louder than some of my favorites. I just couldn’t pick out personally what the big deal was to tell you the truth. It did have a fun innovative idea and they did it well, but all the movie was, was your average comedy that made you laugh and not even as much as you would’ve hoped based on all the praise.
The Hangover is a great comedy, its just overrated. And that’s not necessarily that bad of a thing I’m saying. I find The Godfather overrated. It’s an incredible movie, but there are many better ones. Some highly respectable critics have been putting it on their top ten movies of the year and its just not making much sense to me. Funny People was a better comedy. The Hangover felt forced at times.
You can have a lot of fun while watching, don’t get me wrong. Its really a flawless plot when it comes to a comedy. Its a comical mystery, you can have a blast because it was made pretty well and you grow to love all the main characters and their interactions. Most already have and I’m the one thats behind, but if you haven’t, go watch The Hangover. You won’t regret it.
