The Hangover is like a greatest hits of male bonding comedy gags delivered with a keen sense of timing by some undeniably likable characters. It will not reformat your comedy hard drives but it will take your discs for a spin.
I thought the Mike Tyson bits and the effeminate Asian man fell incredibly flat, but anything and everything with Zach Galifanakis was amazeballs. Also the impromptu fourth wall shattering Tiger Song was a risk that worked. I wish more of the movie pushed the limits but I should be content with the laughs I got. Some theater-goers apparently got no laughs at all and were seen begging for them outside the theater following their screening of Year One.
