All right, so one of my 3 summer movies that I was looking forward to came out last weekend - "The Hangover". It easily had the best trailer of any movie, and surprisingly it lived up to the hype. I loved it.
Know what I loved most about it? Paul Rudd wasn't in it. Thank God. Brotha needed a break. Not that I'm a Paul Rudd hater or anything, I just don't think he should be in every comedy. He's really not that funny. Don't get me wrong, he can play the role you give him. He's solid, workmanlike even. But do I get excited when he comes on screen cause some funny shit is about to go down? No. So enough with Rudd as Captain Hilarity.
On the other hand, Bradley Cooper is a little like Paul Rudd. He's not a "comedian". But he can be funny when needed. After all, the man was Sack. He played a guy named Sack and you didn't even think twice about it. Try that, Rudd.
Ed Helms always makes me laugh, but it's interesting to note that every character he plays goes out with a woman who won't have sex with him. That's gotta be a confidence builder as a man. "Listen, you're playing a guy who has no sexual appeal whatsoever". "Again?"
Although I do understand. He is topless in this movie and his nipples are disgusting. They look like Gonzo's nose.
Mike Tyson is as advertised, and Heather Graham shows up - her nipples are delightful. And the movie is so good that you don't even mind that you're watching Heather Graham.
I don't want to spoil anything, but I highly recommend it. So we are one for one. Next up...don't let us down, "Year One".
