who comes up with this excrement?

Here is a review of a new film out, which will hopefully dry up and blow away quickly before it poisons many more minds with its morally debased, demeaning and disgusting propaganda.

The Hangover is a crude, crass comedy that manages to be smart at the same time - oh, and funny as hell.

Let me pause right there...think about that statement logically...how can something be "as funny as hell?" Even if you don't believe in a literal hell, how can 'hell' be a logical (or sensible) modifier of 'humor?" Since when did hell become Yuk Yuks? That's kind of like saying "as funny as the holocaust." Who comes up with this and for whom does it make sense?

And by the way, if something is crude and crass, that somehow makes it interesting and desirable? ...sad.

The plot of The Hangover is very simple: Three buddies (and one tag-along) head to Las Vegas to celebrate the impending marriage of one of their own with a bachelor party weekend. They get so incredibly blasted on the night of their arrival that they don’t remember a single thing that happened - of course maximum mayhem ensued during the evening, and they must piece together because the groom-to-be has gone missing.

Now I’m pretty finicky when it comes to comedies, especially the R-rated variety. “Stupid-funny” doesn’t work for me at all, so based on some of what I’d seen in the marketing I was a bit concerned I was possibly in for some vulgar, dumb humor. While The Hangover is certainly vulgar and not for everyone, I found it to be far from stupid. The dialog and characters are brilliant, and had me laughing throughout most of the film.

Rest assured this movie earns its R-rating so for the love of Pete leave the kids at HOME for this one. If you can’t afford a babysitter this week, save a couple of bucks a day and wait until next week to see it. What really blew my mind was the fact that the most extreme scenes in the movie actually don’t appear until the credits are rolling. I won’t give away anything other than to say if you’re offended by sexually explicit material, you’d better leave just as the credits begin to roll. Frankly I’d like to know how the hell they got the very last thing that appears past the MPAA and retained an R rating.

However if you’re into R-rated comedies and don’t mind crude and crass humor, The Hangover is not to be missed.

This 'movie' is rated R for perverse language, sexual content including nudity, and some drug material.
Wow! ...and this appeals to, ...who? Last time I checked, 'perverse' meant: "purposely deviating from what is accepted as good, proper and reasonable." Wouldn't that make it 'deviant?" And those who enjoy this- 'deviants?'

If you "don't mind crude and crass humor," perhaps there is something else you should spend your money on...counseling.
