"The Hangover" wins best Comedy - I think it should get an Oscar Nod
I love a good screwball comedy and "The Hangover" was such a tight script, great plot, excellent cast. To me THIS is how a good screwball comedy should be done. And oh, I laughed the entire fricking time! Sure Todd Phillips can get a bit raunchy, but it was funny raunch not seriously that's just stupid raunch

With Oscar picking 10 movies for best Movie of the year, why not give a nod to "The Hangover"

Stanley Tucci will someday get the credit he deserves....feck I clicked too soon. Oscar. Not Golden Globe. He is one of my favorites.

2. The homophobic "joke" toward the beginning ruined the movie for me. And 500 Days of Summer should
have won the Best Comedy/Musical category. Also, Joseph Gordon-Levitt was robbed!

3. I loved it.
Reminded me of some golden oldies from the 80s.

"What Do Tigers Dream Of?"

5. What're you talking about, Willis?
Alan: Did you have to park so close?
Doug: Yeah, what's wrong?
Alan: I shouldn't be here.
Doug: Why is that, Alan?
Alan: I'm not supposed to be within two hundred feet of a school... or a Chuck E. Cheese.

6. More like
Alan: Gambling? Who said anything about gambling? It's not gambling when you know you're gonna win. Counting cards is a foolproof system.
Stu: It's also illegal.
Alan: It's not illegal. It's frowned upon. Like masturbating on an airplane.
(Beat)
Phil: I'm pretty sure that's illegal too.
Alan: Yeah, maybe after 9/11, where everybody got so sensitive. Thanks a lot, Bin Laden.

Stu: Thats strange.
Officer:Yeah it is strange. It had a note attached to it that said "Couldnt find a meter, so here's $4."
