#12: The Hangover

January 30, 2011

Yes, I did watch this hungover.

So what’s it about?: Three guys wake up in Vegas after a crazy bachelor party having lost the groom and all of their memories of the chaos that ensued the previous night!

The Good: This movie is both hilarious and amazingly well structured.  And of course has the key ingredients of any classic raunchy comedy: 1 part quotable one-liners, 1 part hilarious pratfalls, and 1 part actual plot.  Not to mention the comedic combination of Zach Galifinakis, Ed Helms and Bradley Cooper is just inspired and GOLDEN.

The Bad: After watching it again, parts of this film do drag on a bit, but only to pick right back up again!

The Verdict: One of the classic comedies of a generation.  This is one of those films people will still be watching, and still be trying to copy, for years to come.  Do yourself a favor and watch it.

#28: Sex Drive

October 19, 2009

1 SHEET MASTER (CTP READY)So, based on my ratings, Netflix told me I would like this movie, but they were only streaming the unrated version.  I was warned by the filmmakers to not watch this version if I’d never seen the movie, but nevertheless I didn’t listen and watched anyway.

So what’s it about?: Your typical socially stunted, recent high school graduate sets out on a mission to lose his virginity to some chick he met on the internet.  With the help of his trusty sidekicks and a quirky gang of supporting characters, chaos ensues.

The Good: This is probably the funniest unrated-for-the-sake-of-being-unrated movie I’ve ever seen.  From the intro by the filmmakers to the ridiculous insertion of nudity throughout the film to the insertion of outtakes.  It added this whole new level of quirk that really made a somewhat typical R-rated teen comedy become something totally awesome.  Mad props to the filmmakers for that one.  And Seth Green continues to prove how awesome he is.

The Bad: Even with the added unrated charm, this movie is still your typical teen comedy where being a virgin is the ultimate sin and getting from one place to another is naturally going to end in havoc.

The Verdict: Think Eurotrip meets Some Kind of Wonderful meets American Pie.  And if you’re easily offended by nudity, try to get the theatrical version!  But def worth seeing.
