A Good Hangover?

I'm a kind of film snob. See, I called it "film" thus verifying that fact. I like movies like Doubt, and The Reader, and Slumdog Millionaire. I watch the Oscars and actually get pissed when a "Chicago" wins Best Picture. I argue with people who think Superbad and Knocked Up were funny and the snobby part is I never even saw them. I believe 99% of so-called comedies are not funny and I don't go see them because it actually torques me off to hear people laughing at something I don't think is funny. In fact, some guy getting hit in the marbles doesn't even amuse me. Ok, now that I've established my total elitism and arrogance let me say this loud and clear.

The Hangover is the funniest freaking movie I have seen in 30 years. This thing is Animal House funny, folks. I don't know how the writers of this thing did it, but every minute of this masterpiece is captivating, disgusting, gross, stupid and hilarious. You all know what it's about, so I won't even describe it, but go see it. Drag your wife or girlfriend or any female you like to it because women will laugh out loud also. And stay for the credits. Please.

Thanks so much for this post. You and I are a lot alike in the part that any movie like Superbad and Knocked Up are not funny. I think Seth Rogan is a hoot in his own right, but those movies didn't do a thing for me. If I hadn't ridden with friends to the movie, I would have walked out of Superbad 15 minutes in.
I do want to see Hangover though and now I think your recommendation is the green light I need!

And what do you mean about that remark about Chicago... that was the BEST MOVIE EVER!!!!!
