Sam, I generally like your stuff. However, you just said the following about The Hangover:

The Hangover trilogy is essentially the worst tendencies of Old School, minus any sense of the best tendencies of Old School.
The performances are a failed attempt to compensate for the mess that results.
It doesn’t work.

Hangovers 2 and 3? Sure. But the original Hangover “works” in every sense of the word. I think your distaste for the latter portions of the trilogy unfortunately colors your reflection of the original.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
