The Hangover, 2009
Dir: Todd Phillips

Showcase Cinema Woburn MA
Ah, Lowbrow. I've missed you so. And you know it's a lowbrow film when in the end credits it literally looks like someone is getting there dick sucked (like for real real). I thought that it was pretty funny, but I generally like these comedies where very little brainpower is involved to watch it, which I'm sure is why America loves them so much as well.
There really isn't much to talk about. Three buddies, plus the brother of the bride-to-be (Zach Galifinakis, a not so biting but still weird-funny that he usually is), go to Vegas for a Bachelor Party. They have a toast before the night begins, and then it cuts to the next morning where no one can remember anything, and the groom-to-be is missing. Crazy hijinks ensue to find out where he is, involving Mike Tyson and babies in sunglasses.
So yeah, it's funny. That's all the analysis it really needs.
