HASTE MAKES WASTE

Just returned from The Hangover which seemed to last three hours, but that may also have been due to the fact that we were forced into the third row. Zack Galfanakis steals the entire thing, but this was overshadowed by the fact that every time someone that wasn't the wacky white dude leads appears on screen (i.e. a black woman, an asian man, a black man, an "ugly" woman, a married woman, an ambigously middle-eastern dude, the elderly--all in glaring stereotype) their very-other presence is presented as a gag. No thanks on the buffet of racism giggles. I'm not the only one who picked up on this.
