Movie Review

The Hangover dir. Todd Phillips — 7.0

On the whole pretty hilarious despite feeling like a rehash of the 9000 other Apatow-ish "immature guy" buddy movies released over the last few years. The Asian dude leaping out of the trunk had me rolling. Ed Helms adds a needed humanity. It's odd to me how much better comedy scripts have gotten in the last few years. Movies keep getting released with actual clever dialog and bitingly funny lines. Why is this a new development? Does raw humor engender less self-consciousness? Are screenwriters newly released from the strictures of 80's cloying safeness? Either way, it's nice to be merely entertained without having to swallow the requisite spoonfuls of moroncism that seemed like a prerequisite in, say, any John Cusak movie released over the last decade.
And, Twitter too… Also on Facebook

although somehow also pleasant to feel
