The Hangover

This movie just keeps piling on absurdity after absurdity. Some miss, but most hit. I didn't love it as much as some of my friends did but it sure as hell is better than Amy H's succinct review - "$5.75 per laugh." Ouch. Those are fighting words in some circles.

My favorite line is the random one where Zach Galifianakis is trying to remember the title of Three Men and a Baby and describes it as the movie with Ted Danson, Magnum PI, and that Jewish actor.

I also give this movie extra points for making it cool to wear a baby carrier.

On another note, SHR just picked up some baby sunglasses today. Sweet!

Directed by Todd Phillips
Court St.

Unless I'm forgetting something really great, I'd say this was my favorite movie I've seen in the theater in at least a year. Not that I can think of any other movies I even saw in the past year right now. But I really laughed my ass off.

i'm pretty sure that if i saw this while sitting next to chris larry, it would have been my favorite movie of the year.

if i had seen it with chris on one side and a giggling balgavy on the other, it would have been my favorite movie of all time.
