The real underlying message of The Hangover, as in most of Phillips' films, is that women are shrews, whores and/or fools-though Galifinakis is the only one to deal with the homoerotic subtext within the male bonding.
Can't help but agree. I've resigned myself to the fact that these types of movies invariably bloody portray women as either bland and humourless or as awful nagging shrews.

Most married woman are at some point lol. Anyways when you start looking for morals, family values and woman political correctness in a R rated comedy about guys having a hangover, then you probably should stick to reading books. You just missed life..Time to catch up.

This is a movie about four men, and if it was a movie about four women, say BRIDESMAIDS, it would do the exact same thing to give credit and likability to its major characters. It's a comedy, and if you think there is homoerotic subtext involved, it's because you never had funny friends in college. You probably think all team sports are homosexual too. Yeah man... keep preaching the overly-analytical...
It's a COMEDY.
