Being the unofficial start of summer, I’m welcoming in the Memorial Day weekend with an adult beverage….in a very tall glass that’s beginning to sweat.
Besides drinking, grilling, and honoring those who died in military service…a lot of people will be going to the movies this weekend. I already did, selecting Hangover II as my box office pick of season.
If you’ve ever partied hard in Las Vegas, and if you saw Hangover I….then you know that the movie is so pee-in-your-pants funny because the whole thing is plausible. Bachelor party weekend…gone crazy…gone wrong.
Wake up with a wild animal in your hotel room…ya, sure, that could happen in Vegas.
Alan: There’s a jungle cat in the bathroom!
Phil: Holy %$!@, he’s not kidding! There’s a tiger in there!
The thing about any type of hangover is that once you’ve had one, you never want to live through another…and then you do…and do again. So, I gave into temptation and paid the $9.00 admission.
After getting seated and adjusting my senses to the aroma of pseudo butter topping being piped through the HVAC system, the lights dimmed. The 16 advertisements played. The lights dimmed darker. The 8 previews played. A full 24 minutes after scheduled showtime…Fandango reminded everyone that we should have bought our tickets online. Then, after silencing our phones and locating the nearest exits…we were ready to be entertained.
I belly laughed the whole way through. The plot was similar to the original, but that’s to be expected with sequels. If you liked Hangover I, you’ll enjoy it. If you hated Hangover I, stay away. There’s cursing, nudity, transvestites, and a drug-dealing monkey that steals your heart.
Alan: I’m going to miss you monkey. I wish monkeys could Skype.
…you get the picture. I give it a thumbs up for a young-minded crowd. In real life, I have a goofy/silly sense of humor, and I gravitate towards that kind of humor in entertainment. I’m also drawn to other people who share…or can appreciate…the silly side of life.
How would you describe your own sense of humor?
What are you up to this weekend? I’ll be going with the flow and relaxing as part of my battle with the UNs. No plans. No commitments. Spontaneity…I’m all yours.
