'The Hangover' wallpapers, trailer and the like

Somewhat off topic, but I couldn't resist. 'The Hangover' is out in Dublin this weekend, do yourself a favour and go see it, funniest movie since 'Old School'.


This statement got me thinking, what are the funniest of the new-wave, Will Ferrell, Todd Phillips, Eoin Wilson and Vince Vaughn movies since 'Old School'?

One man's top ten;

10. Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story (2004) - Instantly forgettable and yet somehow always enjoyable when you do tune in.
9. Blades of Glory (2007) - 'It gets the people going!' gets me every time, but that's one of the few highlights.
8. Talladega Nights: (2006) - Almost hilarious.
7. Step Brothers (2008) - This gets better every time I see it, there are some gems hidden in there you don't catch the first time.
6. Semi-Pro (2008) - Nearly brilliant, Jackie Moon is a riot.
5. Starsky & Hutch (2004) - Stands up beautifully to repeated viewing, and gets funnier every time.
4. Wedding Crashers (2005) - Not everyones cup of tea, but I love it, from the hilarious opening scene right down to the final slapstick, one of the best.
3. Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy (2004) - Now for the holy trinity, the top three, and Anchorman is right up there. Brilliantly conceived and delivered, a riot from start to finish. Just have a think how much of this movie has made it into common speech! I love lamp!
2. Old School (2003) - The grandaddy of them all, the original and one of the best still. Frank the Tank! Frank the Tank!
1. The Hangover (2009) - Trust me, once you see it you'll totally understand why this is number one. Guys, there's a tiger in the bathroom!!


Just to note, some good news for 'Old School' fans, believe it or not there is a sequel coming out. We just have to survive until 2011 to see it!

Meanwhile, a gallery of super duper 'The Hangover' wallpapers, feel free to use any yourself!

Awesome list. I'd move Dodgeball up above Semi-Pro but they're all so good it doesn't really matter.

It's good I must say - well worth 2 hrs of your time. The Japanese guy is high-larious!
