The Hangover (2009) -vs- My Life In Ruins (2009)
Itâ€™s a battle of the sexes for the ages. The balls-out edgy Men-Will-Be-Boys comedy takes on the watching-paint-dry-by-numbers My Not So Fat Any More Greek Tour Guide. Hardly a fair fight, thereâ€™s no intersection in the Venn diagram of viewers who might enjoy both outings. Oneâ€™s ostensibly for the ladies — and by ladies I mean strictly Red Hat Society folks, the ones who talk in the theaters non-stop, moviegoers surprised by plot turns telegraphed so clearly that you wonder how these clueless souls found their way to the theater without assistance. â€œThe Hangoverâ€ aims for a demographic blessed with a lowbrow sense of humor and no sense of decorum. Itâ€™s Dumb versus Dumber. Chicks versus Dudes. Old versus Young. Grab yourself a Jaegermeister or a giant bottle of Ouzo. Youâ€™re gonna need to get a little liquored up to make it through this double feature.
