Now that you've seen it, what did you think? Holy sh*t, I can't believe the MPAA let them show that! The Hangover is this summer's underdog comedy that might just become a breakout hit. Its got a crazy hilarious concept, the perfect cast, and some top notch marketing. But how is it as a movie? Any good? Does it live up to those brilliant trailers or is it just a drawn out and boring extension of those two-minutes. How was Mike Tyson's cameo? Was Zach Galifianakis as funny as he looked in the trailers? Who else stood out from the cast? Sound off below, leave your thoughts, and let us know what you thought of The Hangover!
To fuel the fire, I thought The Hangover was great, Todd Phillips did a good job, and the cast really is perfect. I may not be fond of Ken Jeong, who plays Mr. Chow, but I thought he was a hilarious addition this time, as was Mike Tyson. But if I have to be critical, the concept really is drawn out too much. It takes way too long to get to the point where they wake up without knowing what happened (that should've been the opening scene) and the story extends over a weekend, not just one day (as it should). As much as I enjoyed it, I think it could've been tightened up just a bit. Though the photographs are the end were truly insane!
What did you think of The Hangover? This summer's best comedy or too slow and boring?
