Jake's Review of The Hangover
Let me start by saying I was extremely excited to see this movie. I wanted to see it in the theatre, but for one reason or another I never made the effort to go. So I finally watched it last night on Blu-ray with a friend of mine, and I was disappointed. I remember the trailers on TV made the movie look like it would be hilarious, but it seems that they employed the old, let's put ALL the funny lines and scenes in the commercial tactic. The saving grace for the movie was Zach Galifianakis, he was by far the funniest person in the movie. In particular the wolf monologue, including the line about "We're just four wolves roaming the desert looking for strippers...and cocaine", that was hilarious. The scenes with Mike Tyson were pretty good too. I was really let down at the revelation of where Doug was, it seemed like the writers just gave up. I say watch it for free when it comes to your cable provider.
