Have had some sick kids this week so I’m kind of mailing it in on Flakes.

Yesterday I stumbled upon The Hangover. I haven’t seen that movie in quite a while. Watched it again and my thought was why don’t they make comedies like this anymore?

It is extremely enjoyable, ridiculous, smooth and hilarious movie. A movie that you can watch numerous times and still enjoy it.

I haven’t done a deep dive but I wonder if this was the last “great comedy.” I’m sure many of you definitely disagree.

If The Hangover isn’t the last great comedy then what would be?

(Hangover 2 was okay but it couldn’t live up to the original. Hangover 3 was simply awful, though maybe I should give it another re-watch.)
