I was a late arrival to the Hangover band wagon. I didn’t see it in the theaters, and my first viewing on DVD didn’t yield too many laughs from me. My wife on the other hand loved it. So, when I heard they were making a sequel, I kept informed for her benefit. I was surprised to see Mel Gibson had been considered for a cameo, and the details revealed in an interview with the director are interesting.
If the tapes being released didn’t have so much raw hate and rage, this might actually be funny. When couples squabble over little things, it can sometimes get so ridiculous it’s actually humorous. This squabbling is downright unreal, though. In all my time, I have never been witness to a couple that had this much anger going on as Mel and Oksana. The tapes being released, which is almost a weekly occurence it could be its own series, just drip with bitterness.
Can someone please tell me when Mel Gibson officially jumped the shark, or nuked the fridge, or emptied his marble bag? I honestly loved the guy in the Lethal Weapon series, but all these audio tapes coming out of him uncensored is really making me think twice about whether to list him as an actor I like to watch. I’m sorry, some people can overlook this and appreciate his work, but for me, I have to respect the individual first. And if these tapes are legitimate, my respect is probably gone.
