Movie night

We went to a friend's tonight to watch The Hangover. I'd seen the ads for it when it first came out but I wasn't sure if I'd like it: it's about guys who head to Vegas for a bachelor party and when they wake up the next morning they not only can't find the groom, they can't remember anything that happened the night before. Sure, that sounds kind of funny, but I have a slightly odd sense of humour and I usually don't find most mainstream comedies all that funny so I approached this with some trepidation.

It turns out that this is a hilarious movie. Sure, it's sort of ridiculous - not as ridiculous as Dude, Where's My Car? - and some parts of it are far-fetched, but overall, the story was sort of realistic and funny. More than once I broke down laughing at what happened up on screen, as did my friends (even the ones with a slightly more conventional sense of humour).

I'm not going to tell you how the movie goes or what the funny bits are in this movie because I don't want to spoil it for you - but take it from me, this one is definitely worth watching if you're in need of a laugh.
