The Hangover :- Watch The Hangover on Youtube on Fire, While it would be misleading to claim this is a brilliant film (in either regard as comedy or character study), it’s an assured picture that finds its footing immediately and achieves a surprising level of sustenance throughout its running time. And frankly, let’s be honest, this is a breath of fresh air: it’s one of the best R-rated comedies of the decade, and certainly the most uproarious since Superbad was released two years ago. Most R-rated comedies produced today are defiant; the R-rating has become a hindrance to film studios’ sensibilities everything is PG-13, saving the shameless Unrated schpeel for the DVD cut. The occasional theatrically-released R-rated comedy, as such, is infrequently modest; the ads stress the rating to remind us what we’ve been missing. For every legitimate offer, such as Forgetting Sarah Marshall, we’re treated to movies like College that attempt to lure us into theaters based on the promise of raunchy decadence. The problem is that it’s all so coldly calculated; these films are not funny because a majority of the time they are simply lazy and dishonest. The simplest reason for The Hangover’s success in being genuinely funny is the fact that it achieves a rare balance of character and vulgarity. We laugh at the characters’ misfortunes because we like them, we empathize with them, and they are distinctly actualized. Are they stereotypical? To a certain degree, sure: we have the repressed pussy-whipped guy who obeys his girlfriend’s every command (Ed Helms); the weird John Belushi-esquire figure who speaks in non sequiturs.
