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.
I am a bit slow on catching up big movies lately, but I’m trying my best. Today I finally watched “National Treasure“.

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. :)
