Paul & Amy blearily remember 2009’s Todd Phillips black comedy The Hangover! They praise the film’s star-making casting choices, discuss how to improvise within a carefully storyboarded script, and ask whether a mainstream comedy this transgressive can (or should) be made today. Plus: Is Mike Tyson actually a bad singer?
