Last week I decided to go see a movie with Kacie. I met up with her and we had no idea what movie we were going to see, it was between The Hangover and Transformers 2. Luckily, the choice was made for us because she had to be out of the theater before midnight to turn in some online assignment. Thank imaginary beings for that one because The Hangover was fuckin’ hilarious.
When I first saw the preview for the movie, I thought that it looked kind of stupid. Also, once everyone in the universe started saying it was hilarious, my next thoughts were, “oh great, another movie that everyone will quote, so now I have to see it, or I’ll never have any clue what they are talking about (the main reason I eventually watched Anchorman).
The movie cracked me up. There was plenty of stupid humor, but also some pretty subtle stuff that made me laugh. For those of you that never saw Zach Galifianakis do stand up (especially on the Comedians of Comedy Tour with Patton Oswalt), you have no idea what you are missing.
I was afraid that they would use him as a “Jack Black Light” kind of character, but instead they allowed him to be more of himself, which is absolutely hilarious. Here is a little bit of his stand up to help you understand how odd he can be.
The movie has a little bit of everything, and by that I really do mean everything. You got Mike Tyson, a tiger, a baby pretending to jerk off, gay Asians, funny comments like “Did the real Caesar live here?”, Heather Graham’s breast, Michael’s father from Arrested Development, stolen police cars, and pretty much anything else…
