The galaxy Galifianakis is beaming in from is infinitely more fascinating than the one this film occupies, but his visits from Beserko World are more than worth it.

The kind of brilliant comedy that will have you gasping, laughing so hard you'll have tears in your eyes and rocking back in your chair from laughter.
Full Review | Original Score: 10/10

Just when you think things can't get any more farcical, they do: The Hangover is the Crank of comedy.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5

If the movie's gleeful rush into areas of questionable comedic taste occasionally raises an eyebrow here and there, the end sequence will sear them right off.

A younger generation is finding new stupid things to do underneath the desert sun.

Starting on Monday, Coogan and Bryden share meals . . . and what passes for conversation. When they're not insufferable, they're boring

I highly recommend going into this film blind, just to keep some of the surprises from being ruined. Oh, and being a 21-year-old male will also really help you to enjoy this flick.

The Hangover might not be top class indie pop art, but the film represents the best of what comedy can provide -- pure, unadulterated, slaphappy entertainment. And there's nothing wrong with that.

I can definitely understand why it was a humongous hit, but when all is said and done, once was enough for this partier...

It's good for wasting time and pondering the absurdity of not-so-random events, but not for much else.

The Hangover never pretends to be anything other than what it is, and, partially for that reason, it carries quite a kick.

A fun time is had watching these three men piece together a night that never was, something of an old school detective story mixed with a heavy dose of adult humour. Better comedies have been released, yet not many as brazen as The Hangover.

The Hangover doesn't contain the constant rip-roaring laughs the likes of Superbad or some of the Frat Pack's best.

Bachelor Party meets Dude, Where's My Car (and about as entertaining as the two of them averaged together.)
Full Review | Original Score: 3.0/4.0

The stupid fun of The Hangover is worth experiencing at least once. [Blu-ray]

Todd Philips, who wrote and directed Road Trip and Old Scool, wrote Borat, and even plays the coked out Israeli dude in the elevator in The Hangover, has had his finger on the pulse of modern comedy cinema for a decade.

Quite entertaining as an entry in this tried-and-true genre of "guys going on a inadvertent wacky adventure," and I like how this one is set up as a kind of mystery.
Full Review | Original Score: 7/10

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.
December 15, 2009
works not because it is a comedy, but because its unimpressive comedic content is framed by much more interesting detective story
Full Review | Original Score: 6/10

...apparently, I have no sense of humor for finding so little joy in the runaway hit comedy 'The Hangover.'
