In the opening scene a giraffe being decapitated on a freeway, and there's a scene where a chicken is suffocated. How edgy. I know I'm probably the only person on earth who found the first film repulsive and about as funny as colon cancer (the second film was unwatchable), but where's the humor in this sort of cruelty?

Animal cruelty aside, the whole movie looks terrible and unpleasant to watch.

OP: I didn't think the first two Hangover movies were funny either.

Obviously the giraffe wasn't hurt or killed but was the chicken? Doesn't the ASPCA or something have to be on set when scenes with animals are filmed?

I choke my chicken at least twice a day.

The fake animal cruelty is the least of the movie's problems.
How do you know if it's unwatchable if you don't watch it, and if you watch it to find out, how is it unwatchable?

Is the end of the Hangover series, or will it go on if part III does well?

One of the funniest scenes in "WKRP in Cincinatti" was when they dropped live turkeys from a helicopter who were killed when it turned out they couldn't fly. Granted, you didn't see it in full CGI (and you don't see the giraffe get killed either), but the principle is the same.

The first one was such a huge hit, and I've had an experience with the subject. So I bought the cd. Didn't see all of it. Threw the cd in the nearest dumpster.

I get angry when the trailer comes on TV because of the giraffe scene. Tasteless and abhorrent.

Awful things happening to animals (for real) used to be considered funny. Now even fake awful things aren't. I vote we end humor. Except for the retards, of course.

I vote we end cruel humor including the Howard Stern type of humiliation for mentally challenged people.

I was worried about the intelligence of movie goers who went to the first one and thought this one was funny. Lame, lazy and dumb - sorry movies like this are of the worst kind.

Hollywood "comedy" is all about degrading the human spirit nowadays.
|by Anonymous||reply 25||05/22/2013|
I've seen the trailer and I know it's fake, but I won't see this one, just because the makers of this movie think the decapitated giraffe is funny. If I didn't know about it, I would get up and walk out.
I'm not some PETA freak either, or easily offended, but even the trailer offended me with that.

I think I am more offended by the fact that none of these movies seem to have any GOOD jokes.

The joke is that a real-life homosexual like Bradley Cooper gets to pretend to be cool and pass for straight by making "faggot" jokes.

R29, man's inhumanity to man is one of the universal themes of drama. Movies that go for laughs by depicting or implying gratuitous cruelty to animals are immature at best.

Didn't see I and was taken to the Red Carpet premiere of II. The monkey was the funniest part. Is it animal cruelty to see a monkey smoke and deal drugs? At least it was original, unlike the tired "let's make fun of everyone, especially human beings that are 'less than' . . . " type of humor.
Even pretend animal cruelty or talking about animals in peril, as described in III, is a total turnoff.

Wow, R32, are you actually implying that "The Hangover Part III" might be an immature comedy? Well, I guess that explains it exclusion from the competition slate at Cannes.

Who cares abut CGI animal cruelty. No it's not likely to be funny, but if it's a Hangover movie, I wouldn't expect it to be funny anyway. I was dragged to see the first one and didn't care for it. Plus I hate the fat bearded stupid man so much that I have to change the channel whenever he happens to be on a talk show or commercial for a movie.

I'll only go and see this if all three of the "dudes" get decapitated.

Jesus, the notion of actually walking up to a box office and handing over ten bucks to see "Hangover 3" is totally foreign to me. Who the fuck pays to see this stuff? Or any movie with a sequel number in it.
Glad you love it 'cause you're gonna get a lot more like it. 14 year old boy jack-off movies. Cinema is doomed.

While R39's aesthetic sense may be unassailable, the now-popular pose spreading all over the DL of "I can't imagine people..." and ".... it totally foreign to me" is getting old.
Save the posturing, Mary. You can conceive it, get it, understand it, and none of it is as foreign as some of the things you put into your mouth. Popular tastes are the opposite of strange. You just look silly.

I'd usually side with hating the funny animal cruelty, and it's kind of hard to watch even knowing it is fake, in the preview, but the whole idea of having a giraffe in your car on the freeway is just so outlandish, that it kind of cancels out the whole idea.
On the other hand, I would not appreciate a fake chicken suffocating. That rings a realistic probability and I can't figure how it could be FUNNY in any fucking way. Thank you.

Animal cruelty is just one symptom - Hollywood producers can't think of anything really funny to show us.
Comedy is at its best when we get to watch the mighty fall.
