The new Hangover

Unread postby Adverb Harry » Fri May 27, 2011 10:51 pm

Just came back from seeing it with the wife. Thought it was amusing in places, but nowhere near as hilarious as the first one. It felt very "forced" at times and it seemed like very long stretches would go by without me even cracking a smile. Not as quotable as the first, and the characters didn't seem to really do or say anything funny or memorable...they just reacted to what they encountered, usually by shrieking or screaming variations of the f-word. Definitely a disappointment.

See it if you've got 8 bucks and a couple hours to waste, but you're not missing out on anything if you don't.

It's not absolutely positively very very very necessary to see this movie.

Rather disappointing.

Hype killed the first movie for me. I'm still gonna check out part 2, but honestly I was expecting a trying too hard effort, which is what it sounds like.

It got a solid 35% rating on Rotten Tomatoes. Strong argument for me to go and see it.

I don't understand the hype over either movie.

I didn't go in expecting it to be as funny, how could it be? It was amusing enough, I didn't feel ripped off.

I felt the writers went into a room smoked as much weed as possible, and said "fuck man, let's just make the exact same film, and repackage it." Bets were placed about whether it would sell or not (while stoned) and they all had a good laugh.

Even with that, I did find some of the movie pretty funny. Just not a must see.

I was busy this weekend with tasks that I'm sure were more interesting than this movie.

Mowing the lawn.

Watching paint dry.

I watched the new Pirates film

It was gash.
