222) The Hangover (2009)

222) The Hangover (2009) Dir: Todd Phillips Date Released: June 2009 Date Seen: July 25th, 2009 Rating: 3/5

The Hangover continues Todd Phillips' lukewarm streak of infrequently funny but never more than spastically charming comedies. Like Old School, it's only really funny in parts, gives the bulk of the funny lines to one guy--instead of Will Ferrell, Zach Galifianakis--and only has a couple of funny random support cast members--instead of Patrick Cranshaw's charmingly lewd geriatric there's Ken Jeong's scwewwy wacist Chinese gangster. There's a lot of junk about how Las Vegas is essentially an American playground/obstacle course, where only the strong man can handle his hedonism but the film's a lil too forgettable for me to really care.
