The Hangover is funny but not deeply so. There's a difference between funny incidents piled up in a line and people who make us laugh because of who they are.

The director and his screenwriters have come up with the funniest film to appear in ages. It avoids the predictable crudity and silly laddishness (well, almost) you'd expect, and delights with zinging one-liners and charming performances.

This is an above par effort, excellently played and just naughty enough to be thought daring as well as amusingly spiteful.
June 12, 2009
An intriguing, time-hopping set-up is wasted on obnoxious characters, celebrity cameos and crass attempts at humour.

The lads duly lurch from one bewildering crisis to another.

It turns out to be every bit as crass, offensive and incorrect as you'd expect, but it's also - gulp! - really very funny an awful lot of the time, as well as bizarrely gripping.

Everything works here; the characters are funny, the set-ups are funny, the lines are funny.

You might be embarrassed by laughing at some of the silliness, but don't be: Everyone else will be cracking up, too.

The movie smells like a hit, but honestly: Helms excepted, did it need to be quite so blandly cast, or quite so lamely raunchy?

There is a sort of perverse brilliance or brilliant perverseness to be found in this story of a bachelor party gone terribly wrong.

The Hangover, like the condition for which it's named, has some spirited moments, but more often it stumbles and slurs, regurgitating earlier pleasures and praying for the fog to lift.

Amusing as it is, it never feels real.

Memento meets Old School? It's party time.

Every summer needs at least one silly, dirty comedy, but The Hangover may end up being one of the few to actually get the mix right.
June 5, 2009
Surprisingly funny and smartly acted.
June 5, 2009
Superbly cast, well-written and so silly it makes your teeth ache.

Early in this unraveling adventure, a Vegas tourist quips, "Some guys just can't handle Vegas." Yeah, we know a couple: writers Jon Lucas and Scott Moore.

You're likely to hear all about it as friends and co-workers endlessly quote lines or re-create scenes.

The funniest movie so far this year.

Waking up with a hangover and no memory of what happened the night before is an experience most people can relate to, but it's also a surefire device for comedy.
