Why are the Hangover movies so popular? I get that they are the ultimate escapism and rely on absurdity to make us laugh, but really…how can seemingly intelligent people end up with unexplained tattoes, shaven heads and even marriages? The recently released Bridesmaids is funny, no doubt, but it trivializes drinking to excess as well. In my opinion these movies normalize overdrinking and are particularly appealing to young people who actually need to hear that you don’t have to drink to have fun or to celebrate life events. Any thoughts on these movies?
