10. Harry Potter and The Philosopher’s Stone
If Harry Potter doesn’t make you happy, then I have no words for you. Seeing the heartwarming face of Hagrid, or witnessing the blossoming friendship of the Trio is enough to cure a hangover. The nostalgia of your Potter childhood is enough to give you butterflies — and not the kind that will only worsen the feelings in your stomach. Just take note to not follow up this movie with The Chamber of Secrets. You know, that scene when Ron throws up the slugs…
9. Drop Dead Gorgeous
You might not know of this film, but you will at some point in your lifetime. Drop Dead Gorgeous is both horrifying and hilarious at the same time. I suggest this as a hangover cure because it’s kind of like the gem on pageant mockery. Seeing the way these girls battle it out for the top title of pageant glory will take your mind off of your own sad state. If you don’t get around to watching the film, just sit back and be mesmerized by this gif from the movie:
8. Toy Story
Toy Story is a film that lives in the hearts of everyone who is legally old enough to drink. Watching this movie whilst hungover will make you forget all of your worries and remember that you have a friend in Woody and Buzz. It might also inspire you to dig up some old childhood toys and cuddle your nausea away. That, or you can slowly fall asleep during the movie and slumber away to a happy place.
7. Lost in Translation
Lost In Translation earned director Sofia Coppola a lot of attention for her notorious dreamy visuals and uncanny writing. Some of the scenes of Bill Murray are hilarious, but with an undertone of sadness. Amongst basically every Sofia Coppola film, Lost In Translation is good for a hangover because it has beautiful, sleepy music with lovely visuals that will sooth your mind and ease you into a deep sleep.
6. Pretty in Pink
Pretty in Pink is the kind of movie where you really, truly want to cheer for the main character to find happiness. Following Andy (and her adorable sidekick, Duckie) will give you some purpose and motivation during an otherwise hopeless time. It’ll also motivate you to get off the couch and completely DIY your entire wardrobe to look like Andy’s and/or Duckie’s.
5. Mean Girls
The question is, when ISN’T it ever a good time to watch Mean Girls? Of course, you know every line, every expression, and every comedic pause that occurs in this cinematic gem. So instead of being a bump on a bump lying on your couch, you’ll at least be reciting the classic lines in Mean Girls. You’ll also have Janice Ian to discourage you from any future hangovers.
4. The Social Network
The Social Network is the type of film that will stimulate your brain. Its quick wit and fast-paced lines will hold your concentration (and whatever else in your stomach) for a few hours. It also might discourage you from logging onto Facebook and seeing evidence of last night’s regret.
3. Napoleon Dynamite
Napoleon Dynamite is so mind-numbingly pointless, it will require very little of your hungover attention. On the other hand, it’s also side-splittingly hilarious, so it could possibly single-handedly cure your hangover. Napoleon Dynamite gets up to so many shenanigans just trying to fight off the school bullies. Seeing his many (often weird and random) accomplishments will make you want to say “forget this hangover” and then conquer the world. Heck yes!
2. The Wizard of Oz
This might seem like a completely random way to cure a hangover, but hear me out. The Wizard of Oz is like a treasure trove of happiness because of its magical colours and famous songs. The film will for sure stimulate your fried brain after a long night of partying. The best part is that the film’s heroine, Dorothy, reminds us all that there’s no place like home. This statement will comfort you after a wild New Years Eve.
1. Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring
Lord of the Rings makes the number one spot on this list for endless reasons. Primarily, the length of the film is enough to lull you into a nice sedation. The film is so addicting that you will be practically forced to watch the rest of the LOTR movies, which will keep you occupied for your entire hangover. By the end of it all, you can give your self a nice round of Hobbit-esque applause.
If you ever wondered what a cartoon hangover looks like, this video should answer any questions you may have had. In what looks like a Pixar interpretation of a nightmare, the people at Feel Good Inc have done a fantastic job giving this song some visuals.
DoYaThing features Andre 3000 and for months we’ve been wondering what he would look like after getting the Gorillaz animation treatment. Sadly, for the limited time his character appears in this video, he is wearing a mask.
As creepy as this video seems at times, it’s also very funny. It looks like the castaways from a Disney movie dropped out of college and started a band. DoYaThing is a great video to sooth your aching head the next time you wakeup after a week-long bender.
Outspoken actor Zach Galifianakis has dissed Ke$ha, reports Canoe Jam.
Galifianakis says he has constantly denied Ke$ha’s requests for dates, and flat out bashed her music upon meeting the singer.
Ke$ha has previously stated that Galifianakis is her ideal man, admitting she has the hots for fat and bearded men, but Galifinakis apparently doesn’t have the same penchant for sleazy blonde popstars.
“I saw that Ke$ha woman the other day. She was sitting by herself, and I walked up to her and said, ‘Listen, I got your e-mail. Your music is really bad! I don’t know who listens to it, but I imagine it’s, like, six year olds – and it’s a bad message,’” he tells Rolling Stone Magazine.
This isn’t the first time the ‘Hangover’ star has publicly dissed a celebrity. Just recently, he took aim at actress January Jones, calling her “rude” and stating she is an actress “everybody’s going to forget about… in a few years”.
I love his outspoken nature! It’s not often celebrities are so open. I can’t say I blame him for denying a date with Ke$ha, I can only imagine how classy that evening would be.
“A new trailer for “Hangover 2″ — featuring a scene with a monkey biting a pretend wiener — has been pulled from theaters across the country,” reports TMZ, “after movie execs admitted they failed to clear the spot with the Motion Picture Association of America.” Well that’s one way to get your trailer pulled!
MPAA executives were angered when the rated-R trailer for the “Hangover” sequel debuted on April 1 in front of an audience waiting to watch the PG-13-rated “Source Code.”
“In our haste to meet the placement schedule for this trailer, we failed to properly vet the final version with the MPAA. We acted immediately to correct the mistake and removed the trailer from screens,” a rep from Warner Brothers confessed to TMZ.
A new and improved – not to mention approved – is set to hit theatres on April 15 before the R-rated film Scream 4, according to the Hollywood Reporter. “Warners wouldn’t discuss what’s being tweaked,” reported the Hollywood Reporter. “But insiders say the scene featuring the monkey nibbling on an old man’s ‘wenis’ is a likely target.” You think? If a video that is flagged as too inappropriate to air before a fellow R-rated movie is any indication, once can only imagine what is to be expected from this upcoming film!
“Hangover 2” opens in theatres on May 26. Can’t wait!
We love Zach Galifianakis and we love Bill Maher. So when the two come together, its only inevitable something hilarious and outrageous was going to happen.
And it did! During the episode, Maher was discussing the legislation of marijuana with Galifianakis along with a bunch of other conservative types opposing the decriminalization of the drug.
“It’s a tricky thing politically to jump on that bandwagon [and vote for the legalization of pot] because I think that maybe people still see it as taboo,” said the ‘Hangover’ star.
Then Galifianakis pulled out a joint, lit up and puffed away. Hilarious!
