this movie was nicely directed and acted, and it left so real, something you don't see in movies today.

8.5/10
If you liked swingers the two of them did another movie which was just as good called MADE. ZCheck it out,

Made is great - such wonderfully unlikable characters.

I just watched the Illusionist - the feature animation with the script from Jacques Tati. I love Jacques Tati. A beautiful film with no dialogue. I can't believe a subpar Toy Story beat it out last night.

The Hangover wasn't a classic comedy or anything but it was still an entertaining movie imo, good for some laughs.

Buried. starring Ryan Reynolds. literally the only actor you see throughout the whole movie. which takes place in a coffin THROUGHOUT the whole movie. but some intense shit, especially the ending

Have you never seen Back To The Future?

Classic. I love Michael J Fox and Christopher Lloyd. And it's the only time you'll ever see Crispin Glover in a role that isn't completely friggin' creepy.

So are you saying, one needs to be young and immature to like the movie?

Your obviously in the minority. I am not saying its the funiest movie ever. But if you can watch it and not find it funny, then your probally too serious of a person.

Either that or a little bit of a troll

From a marketing standpoint, the movie did reach out to a certain age group. For you to not see that.. well....

Mehhh, that's most comedies. I mean let's face it, take a look at the comedies out there. And to say someone that's 40yrs old wouldn't get that humour is extremely short sighted. Take a look at the comedies we grew up with, where do you think movies with this type of humour came from. They certainly didn't just start making them, in fact most of these comedies are rip offs from other movies. And FYI i'm 37 and thought it was pretty good, not a great movie by any stretch but not bad either.

it was ok, but i find most comedies so-so these days...doesn't seem to be anything that could be classified as original anymore (like most Hollywood films these days)

Animal House, Blazing Saddles, Young Frankenstein, Monty Python and the Search for the Holy Grail, Dr. Strangelove or How I learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb and The Pink Panther are all what i would consider classics or originals
but at 51 i guess i'm too old or too serious to "get" comedy

hahaha....

Most of my friends disliked it. I enjoy a good comedy. I really, really do.

I seeing Ken Jeong chasing people around = not funny. Seeing Zach Galifinakis act like a mentally challenged person = not funny. Ed Helms getting punched in the face = not funny.

Honestly, I could wait until the movie was done. Me and my wife were waiting for the funny parts to start. We chuckled maybe 3 times.

And a troll? Really? When did this become a thread about how awesome The Hangover is? It's a catch all movie thread.

Easy there....

From a marketing standpoint it targeted the 18-35 yr. old male demographic that will buy anything Hollywood throws at them. I'm kinda glad I don't enjoy Hollywood. Perhaps THAT'S why I didn't get it.....

They are all classics. I have seen them all numerous times. I guess i am of the personality that isnt too critical. I find the good in everything.
Thats one thing i notice with people on message boards (and i am not referencing you, or anyone else) but they tend to be very negative.
Not only negative, but also egg on arguements over trivial things. Its fine to say you dislike something, but to categorize a movie as not funny. Well thats just relative.

This entire thread is opinion.

People are allowed to say they didn't think something was funny just as much as other are allowed to disagree and say it was funny.

If we all agreed on the same crap, the board would be pretty boring and we likely wouldn't come here so much.

So... who wants to fight?
