    I’m drumming for The Hangover as this year’s the “little miss movie” that could. I’m looking at this year’s top contenders and I could easily see them fall by the way side when released–and that’s when a generally well received movie with box office gross exceeding 2 million will make it in the short list.

    The Hanogover will not be the little movie that could. The studio already new that would be sucessful, that’s why they were talking about a sequel even before the movie came out. And it’s a guys movie, just like Wedding Crashers and that kind. We should not exaggerate

    Loved ‘The Hangover’. It was just plain funny. Real humor. I loved it.

    I think the quality of the films being released has been on a steady decline for the past few years. Accordingly, whenever a decent, above average film comes along, it is exalted. The Hangover was good, but not that good. Then again, it was much better than The Reader.
