I went to see “Hangover” yesterday.  That’s actually one of the films that I was waiting to see.  Firstly, because I am a fan of Todd Philips comedy films (particularly, “Old School” and “Road Trip”, both of which I have probably seen a gadzillion times by now).  Secondly, because the trailer was funny and promising.  And, thirdly, because it’s summer time and I am all for more entertainment.

My expectations were pretty high for this film, and they were all well met.  It was hilarious.  Interestingly, it was funny in a different way then I expected it, but it was very funny non-the-less.  The comedy was evenly distributed across the film, with a bit of build-up effect towards the end.  By which time my belly was hurting and my eyes were wet of laughter.

Highly recommended, with my rating of 5 stars.  Just remember, that this one is not for kids.  Everyone else should watch it.

Having nothing better to do, watched “Gigli” on DVD, which turned out to be a much better movie then IMDB was rating it. Well, it was not something I would defenetely recommend, but it was a rather OK movie. The plot was rather boring with no action what-so-ever, but acting was very well done at times.

Few moments that stand out are:

  • Jennifer Lopez getting in Ben Affleck’s apartment
  • Jennifer’s and Ben’s sex talk over yoga
  • Al Pacino’s monolog (as usual)

These three scenes make this movie worse watching during the boring night, before yet another Friday. :)
