hangover

I’ve been going hard on the music tip lately, but I’d like to take this moment to remind everyone that although at times it might seem like this, The Block isn’t solely about music. I actually enjoy blogging about whatever comes to mind. It just so happens I’ve been locked into a music mind-state, but I’m going to try to get out of that for the sake of random blogging. Anyways, I went to the movies the other day and saw The Hangover, which if I’m not mistaken, has been the #1 movie at the box office for the last couple weeks.

The Hangover, starring Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms, Zach Galifianakis, Justin Bartha and Heather Graham, is about four guys that head to Las Vegas for a bachelor party. They get beyond wasted, wake up the next morning, have no idea what happened the night before, and they can’t find the guy that’s getting married. So, the three other guys spend the entire movie trying to find the groom (Doug), while trying to figure out what the fux happened.

Now, I must admit I am a tough critic, and I’m probably tougher on movies than I am music (and that’s pretty tough). But I was amused by this comedy, sh!t, I don’t think I’ve laughed that hard since Tropic Thunder. Zach Galifinakis and his character Alan (which is the character pictured above with the baby) just about carry the film. Alan is Doug’s soon-to-be brother-in-law, but he’s kinda borderline retarded, so the things he does and says throughout the movie are what set the scenes off. Alan is the type of dude that if he was my brother-in-law, I’d tell my wife that he couldn’t come over…ever, and she’d just have to deal with that, or we’d have to get a divorce (word to Usher).

The Hangover is basically a guy flick, so it’s filled with lewd and physical comedy. Picture Entourage, with Vince being not as cool, Drama being a douch, Eric being a lame, and Turtle being mentally unstable, and place them in Vegas, and you basically have the four characters in this movie.

Although it did have a lot of parts that are downright hilarious, there are parts that kinda drag although, making the moments in between the comedy a little too slow. Plus, the only well-known actor/actoress in the film is Heather Graham, and it’s obvious that the cast isn’t that strong. Mike Tyson did make an appearance, and his scenes are outrageous, but we’re talking about Mike here, and ya’ll know the only person he can play in a movie is Mike Tyson. If I had to compare it to Tropic Thunder, TT had an all-star cast that was carried by two-time Academy Award nominated actor Robert Downey, Jr., while The Hangover‘s standout actor is a guy named Zach (no Morris).

Although the star-powering is lacking, I still think this movie is something you can hit the theater to see, have a few laughs, and be entertained for a couple hours. We all can use some LOL moments from time-to time, and The Hangover will provide that.
