The Hangover sucked and I love those type of comedies. Galifinakis was the only redemption.

It wasn't very good, and the more my television tells me it was awesome, the less I like it. :-t :-t :-t

The Hangover was hilarious.

Maybe I shouldn't be surprised about the hate, though, there were some people here that didn't even find Borat funny when it came out.

The Hangover = lame.

Comedies are strange in that every person that watches them finds different things funny. I think that's why there are such divergent opinions on them. Personally, I like both Borat and the Hangover for entirely different comedic reasons...

Comedies anymore seemed to have "evolved" into people walking around saying the most random thing possible. Throw in some cussing and a bunch of sexual references and you have yourself a blockbuster. Some of these formula comedies pull it off decently where they don't seem like complete clones of either Anchorman or Dumb and Dumber, but for the most part there is nothing memorable about them other than a scene or two.

I guess I just find funny realistic situations more my type of humor than just random one-liners. Or maybe it just the actors that are in all these movies that I don't find funny since some of my favorite comedies are things like Marx brothers, Abraham/Zucker, and Brooks movies which are basically nothing but random one-liners and absurd situations.
