Just Awful

HangoverThe Hangover (Warners)

An unapologetically vulgar Las Vegas road trip masquerading as a comedy, The Hangover glories in toilet humor that becomes increasingly more desperate as a tiger, a toddler, and even Mike Tyson (playing himself—badly) show up to drag the movie to the next witless scene. The cast comprising Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms, Zach Galifianakis and Justin Bartha wears out its welcome quickly; even a potential bright spot like Heather Graham (as a hooker with a heart of gold, of course) has little to do. Blu-ray makes the Vegas Strip setting look glamorous enough, if that’s your idea of a visual upgrade to an essentially flat-looking experience. The “unrated” version, which is eight minutes longer, is raunchier and cruder, to little effect. Extras include a commentary, gag reel, interviews, behind-the-scenes spots. originally posted on
