Who needs the Frat Pack?By poochini (10 reviews) from Oxford , 03 Jun 2009
[Highly rated reviewer]This Comedy is straight out of the top drawer. Directed by Todd Phillips (the same guy as Road trip, old School, and Starsky and Hutch), It's a comedy which relies on script rather than the pull of the actors involved, and believe me it definitely delivers (Imagine Dude wheres my car, but more grown up, funnier and not just for stoners).
For months comedy's have been churned out which have promised so much with regards to the actors involved and the trailers advertised,but after watching them you cant help but feel they were a little over hyped. Whether thats due to the story, The length of the movie, The amount of laughs, or even the idea that it just should have been better (pineapple express, role models, and mall cop, to name a few).
This one, however, has the lot: Love, Loss, and desperation, and without losing its direction (or laughs) towards the end. It's the right Length, the characters are perfect, the jokes are origional and best of all, laugh out loud funny. Admittedly there are some jokes in there which play with the boundaries of decency, and really make you question how sick you must be to laugh (the babys 'hand guestures' and the naked old guy), But thats just the kind of thing that you will talk, and laugh about when your picking the movie apart long after you've left the cinema.
For those of you who rate Old School as an all time comedy classic then you will LOVE this movie. You'll also appriciate the cameo's along the way, Namely the wedding band at the end of the movie (another classic cover to rival 'Turn Around'). But for those of you who have not seen Old School, and like a good comedy, then you are wasting valuable minutes in your life, and you should put it on your 'High Priority' list now. And for those of you who dont like Old School then......well...... i cant help you.......and you should probably give this movie a miss.
All in all, More of the same style of comedy from Todd Phillips, But still Origional and definitely one of his best so far.
Go and see this Movie.

Amazing filmBy a customer , 16 Jun 2013This film was very funny and different from other films. Its a must watch. Love how the film unfolds. Can't wait to see number two!
A Must Watch!!!By a customer , 15 Jun 2013This is the question you ask yourself what if I went out for the night and got so wasted you couldn't remember a single thing you'd done in the last 12 hours. Watch this great film unfold as the brilliantly played characters story unravels as they try to piece together the nights events... A Must Watch!!!
Shakespeare, it's not.By a customer , 12 Jun 2013Makes Dumb and Dumber look like Shakespeare. Daft, but really funny. Some good acting and a good story. Worth watching.
a hundred holliwood comedies funnier than this.By a customer , 26 May 2013I tried hard to find something to laugh at. Pretty much only a chinese in the boot caused a smile. Typically purile and so like films made 30 years ago which were ten times funnier. A situation comedy where the situations were'nt at all believable.
waste of celuloidBy a customer , 02 Apr 2013trys to hard to be funny and doesnt work, why do the do so many in a series, oh yeah- the actors need some more money cos they dont have enough to live in Hollywood.
