Summertime always delivers lots of movies. There are the blockbusters (Transformers 2), the bombs (Land of the Lost), the romcoms (The Ugly Truth), and the surprises…enter The Hangover. Although Bradley Cooper aka The Beautiful One was annoying beyond belief, the comedic chops of Zach Galifianakis completely made up for it. The beauty of it is that the actors hail from the Great Unknown (no Owen Wilson/Seth Rogen cameos). I remember watching Cooper in “He’s Just Not That Into You,” Bartha in “National Treasure” (come to think of it, I demand a refund for the sequel), Helms as Andy Bernard in “The Office,” and Galifianakis on Comedy Central, but none of these guys have headlined major movies, making their comedy and subsequent box office domination a pleasant surprise. In addition, seeing it after a weekend of bad decisions made me feel relatively sane/responsible/ok; the foursomes fail > my fail. If you haven’t seen it, see it. If you’ve already seen it, see it again. I know I will.
On a side note…did Mr. Chow have a penis?
Stu Price: You do know counting cards is illegal, right?
Alan Garner: It’s not illegal, it’s just frowned upon. Like masturbating in an airplane.
Phil Wenneck: I’m pretty sure that’s illegal, too.
Alan Garner: Maybe since 9/11 when everyone got so damn sensitive. Thanks a lot Bin Laden!
