'The Hangover' Will Leave You Laughing—and Perhaps Feeling Guiltynew

Bleary-Headed Party Boys Aren't Quite As Bad As They Wanna Be–But They're Still Funnynew

Arguably, the cumulative effect of The Hangover isn't quite as outrageous as it could (or probably should) be. But fans of Todd Phillips' previous efforts will nurse sufficient belly laughs from the film's post-drunken shenanigans.

Three Bachelor-Party Bozos Loose in Sin City Wake Up with the Very Funny 'Hangover'new

This messy, raunchy farce about three groomsmen on a lost-weekend bender in Sin City continues director Todd Phillips' fascination with the alpha male's default setting, childhood reversion.

'The Hangover' Is a Crude, Dumb Comedy--and a Hilariously Good Timenew

Like the millions of tourists who soak up the American excess of Las Vegas, The Hangover is basically just interested in having a good time. It's dumb, it's crude and if there's a flaw in its execution, it's only that it adds more to the journey than a trip this simple needs.

Todd Phillips Kneels at the Porcelain Altar Yet Again in 'The Hangover'new

In The Hangover, Todd Phillips has taken away the only bright spot that could come of being stuck in Vegas with middle-aged misanthropes--the drunken escapade--and opts to showcase the dull, offensive and humorlessly sober morning after.

Zach Galifianakis Is the Best Bro at a Memorable Bachelor Partynew

The Hangover's plot sounds disturbingly like quintessential bro cinema. Only something funny happens on the way to a routine Hollywood man-comedy: Phillips gives a comedic genius his first big break and rediscovers the lost art of screwball.

'The Hangover' Is Low Art

To its credit, The Hangover transfers to the audience the smelly, still inebriated state that the title promises.

Lacking Laughsnew

Jon Heder bores and Billy Bob Thornton repeats himself in the lackluster School for Scoundrels.

Old Schoolin'

Toss perfect actors an imperfect script, and you're going to get an audience mourning what might've been.

Failure to Laughnew

Although it stars Billy Bob Thornton and Napoleon Dynamite's Jon Heder and is jam-packed with multi-talented comedians and stars, School for Scoundrels is just not funny.

School’s Out

School For Scoundrels relies on Thornton's hovering performance to drive the film.
