The Hangover

I don't like these kinds of movies.

Frat boy humor. Yuck.

And yet . . .

While it was a victim of its hype in that I didn't like it as much as I was led to believe I might, I liked it better than its genre would suggest.

It was pretty out there and yet it always managed to pull back just before it fell irretrievably over the edge.

Instead of just being a gross frat boy over the top extravaganza, it resolutely held fast with an underlying sweetness and I laughed in spite of myself.

The photos during the end credits are as funny as the whole rest of the movie.
