The funniest movie ever

The wife was sleeping, the kids were sleeping, so two nights ago I dragged myself to see “The Hangover”—which everyone seems to agree is the funniest movie ever. Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha. ha …

I hated it.

Eh, “hated” is too strong. But I didn’t like it. Predictable, recycled, unimaginative, bargain-basement humor. A distant cry from what I consider to be the funnest movie ever made; a movie that causes me to laugh and laugh and laugh—even though I’ve seen it dozens of times.

Ladies and gentlemen, the comedy to end all comedies …

  1. I’m right with you sir. The Hangover was funny, but the humor was predictable and slapstick-ish. The only thing missing was the laughtrack. I don’t know if I can elevate the Cable Guy into the comedy movie pantheon, but it definitely was a thinking man’s comedy if that makes sense

  2. Good call. I love this movie.

    Sometimes I offer my 1-year-old daughter some “jwisss” (you know, juice) in the morning.

    My wife hates it.

  3. I agree with Andrew. What is wrong with you? Lately, your negativity is making me depressed. Go on a beach vacation to Turks & Caicos to recharge your batteries. You are better than that.

  5. Thanks, I know now the Hangover will be fantastic.

    Cable Guy as funniest movie ever? It probably wasn’t even the funniest Jim Carrey movie that year.

  6. Not funny? I went into “The Hangover” not expecting it to live up to the massive hype it has been receiving the past couple months. I was very surprised. I laughed my ass off the whole time. It was hilarious.

  7. Comedy is extremely subjective. That said, Cable Guy is very underrated. It’s a really good comedy. The Medevial Times scenes rank among my all-time favorites. But best comedy ever? Not by a longshot. But that’s just my opinion.

    Haven’t seen The Hangover yet, but I doubt it sucks as much as you say it does, Jeff.
