I am sorry, I hate to argue with you, but how is this possible?
I offer the following quotes from the first film
Quote:
Melissa: I just wish your friends were as mature as you.
Stu Price: They are mature, actually. You just have to get to know them better.
Phil Wenneck: [yells from outside] Paging Dr. Faggot. Dr. Faggot!
Stu Price: I should go.
Melissa: That's a good idea, Dr. Faggot.

Quote:
Stu Price: [playing piano and singing passionately] What do tigers dream of when they take their little tiger snooze? Do they dream of mauling zebras, or Halle Berry in her Catwoman suit? Don't you worry your pretty striped head, we're gonna get you back to Tyson and your cozy tiger bed. And then we're gonna find our best friend Doug, and then we're gonna give him a best friend hug. Doug, Doug, oh, Doug, Dougie, Dougie, Doug, Doug! But if he's been murdered by crystal meth tweakers,
[stops suddenly]
Stu Price: well then we're shit out of luck.

Quote:
Stu Price: She's got my grandmother's Holocaust ring!
Alan Garner: I didn't know they gave out rings at the Holocaust.

Quote:
Phil Wenneck: The Best Little Chapel... do you know where that is?
Dr. Valsh: I do, it's at the corner of get a map and fuck off. I'm a doctor, not a tour guide.

Quote:
Phil Wenneck: [his answering machine message] Hey, this is Phil. Leave me a message, or don't, but do me a favor: don't text me, it's gay.

Quote:
Phil Wenneck: [a kid tries to ask him a question at school] It's the weekend, Budnick. I don't know you. You do not exist.

Quote:
Doug Billings: Tracy did mention we shouldn't let him gamble. Or drink too much.
Phil Wenneck: Jesus, he's like a gremlin. Comes with instructions and shit.

Quote:
Melissa: Why would you go to Las Vegas?
Stu Price: 'Cause my best friend was getting married, and that's what guys do.
Melissa: That's not what *you* do.
Stu Price: Really? Well, then why did I do it? Huh? 'Cause I did it! Riddle me that! Why'd I do it? You know, sometimes I think all you want me to do is what you want me to do. Well, I'm sick of doing what you want me to do all the time. I think, in a healthy relationship, sometimes a guy should be able to do what he wants to do.
Melissa: That is not how this works!
Stu Price: Oh, good! Because whatever this is ain't workin' for me!
Melissa: Oh, really? Since when?
Stu Price: Since you fucked that waiter on your cruise last June! BOOM!
Alan Garner: You told me it was a bartender.
Stu Price: Oh! You're right. I stand corrected. It was a bartender. You fucked a bartender.
Melissa: You're an idiot!
Stu Price: You're a - You...
[struggles]
Stu Price: You're... such a bad person! Like, all the way through to your core!

Quote:
Stu Price: You found the car?
Officer Franklin: Yeah! It was parked in the middle of Las Vegas Blvd. with a note that said "Couldn't find a meter, so here's $4."


Now I know that this is just from the 1st movie but I challange you to produce as good a lines from the third.

Post Re: The Hangover 3 ...
Yeah.

The first was pretty darn funny.

The second was objectively bad, but kinda internally consistent.

3 is wretched. I don't wanna take Vex on, because i don't wanna circle the plug

p604-i'm sorry, but most of those I didn't find all that funny.

Here's some good stuff from the films page on TVTropes:

Objectively bad? LOL! When it comes to opinions of movies NOTHING is objective. It's completely subjective.

I haven't seen the third one, but I thought the second one was okay. Admittedly it's just a rehash of the first film and there's a little too much of Ken Jeong (a little of him goes a long way IMO). But it made me laugh. And that's all I really ask for a comedy.

How many did you find funny?
Which ones did you find funny?

I know that this is probably a little
but most this page contains jokes from the 1st movie.
One thing for certain is that the 3rd movie does not take up one third of this page. In fact the lion's sare of funny scenes belongs to the first one.

Because there's no such thing as objective standards is there not?

In that case, how would you like your horse shit sandwich for dinner?

You drive the Austin Allegro, I'll drive the E-type Jaguar. You wear a sack of potatoes on your back, I'll wear a £3000 suit. You eat live cockroaches, I'll eat sirloin steak,

'No objective standards' is post-modern bullshit. There are objective standards to everything of value

NotHughGrant, this begs the question of when you'll finally come up with some good or even half-decent music in your British music thread. As far as I remember, all of the songs, which you have mentioned, are objectively bad. None of them sold half as many copies as "Teletubbies say "Eh-oh"", "Wannabe" by the Spice Girls, Showaddywaddy's "Under the Moon of Love" or "Sugar, Sugar" by teh Archies. Now that's what I call objectively good

I'm just curious when you'll get to your favourite, obectively the bestest Stock/Aitken/Waterman singles. (I'd Rick-roll you know, but don't know how to.)

Your post makes no sense whatsoever, there are no such thing as "objective standards" in regards to films and other forms of media, it's not "post-modern bullshit"(post-modern how? that makes no sense :? ) at all.

He's referring to a field of criticism called postmodernism. It's rather controversial in cinema circles, but has its adherents. Look it up.

I know what it is and don't need to look it up, i'm just saying it makes no sense in the context of his post

An almost complete non-sequitur

Well done! No-one seriously likens quality wholly with record sales.

But it's fine, you find that objective standards don't exist. In that case, why should anyone go to film school and learn about story construction, lighting, frame composition and countless other stuff?

Pepper on your horseshit sandwich, sir?
