“ i think you can watch ANY of the star wars, with the worst hangover you may even venture into the trash of the new 3. But if you are not an inch from death, and you have an entire day to kill, then why not watch all 3 back to back? ” - davidboydmorgan

Director: Danny Leiner
“ The 2nd and certainly not the last of the stupid comedies included in the list. Watching two men riding a stoned cheetah through a forest all in search of burgers may be more ridiculous than many of my hangover food searches, but it's reminiscent. ” - davidboydmorgan
 
9.
Van Wilder (2002)

10.
Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back (2001)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.9/10 X  
The comic 'Bluntman and Chronic' is based on real-life stoners Jay and Silent Bob, so when they get no profit from a big-screen adaptation they set out to wreck the movie. (104 mins.)
Director: Kevin Smith
“ This film is in a dead heat with BASEketball as to the stupidest, and best comedy, I have ever seen. An absolute howler of a comedy, and Will Ferrel's part, though not huge, is a cracker as well. ” - davidboydmorgan
 
11.

    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.2/10 X

12.
The Matrix (1999)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.7/10 X  
A computer hacker learns from mysterious rebels about the true nature of his reality and his role in the war against its controllers. (136 mins.)
“ Now this depends on how many times you've seen the Matrix. While I would say you should always re-watch a film with a hangover, don't try blaze a trail into new films. Now Inception has re-blown our minds, The Matrix seems much more accessible, and so it can be watch for its cool factor, reclaiming of the leather coat from the goths, and kick ass fight scenes. ” - davidboydmorgan
 
13.
Chicken Run (2000)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.0/10 X  
When a bird "flies" into a chicken farm, the fellow chickens see him as an opportunity to escape their evil owners. (84 mins.)
“ I added this one on a whim, i thought of it and decided to add it immediately before I even thought about why. Something about nervous chicken's as people combined with its obvious Great Escape links just seem so suitable for a reason I cannot quite put my finger on. ” - davidboydmorgan
 
14.
Young Frankenstein (1974)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.0/10 X

“ The last two are both Gene Wilder's, a great actor, and these are just the right medicine. Young Frankenstein is one of all time favourites, and will have you in stitches ” - davidboydmorgan
 
15.
Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory (1971)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.8/10 X  
Charlie receives a golden ticket to a factory, his sweet tooth wants going into the lushing candy, it turns out there's an adventure in everything. (100 mins.)
Director: Mel Stuart
“ Before Johnny Depp decided with Tim Burton that Willy Wonka must have been some kind of pedophile this movie was an absolutely wonderful film that I still watch today. The rags to chocolate riches story and Gene Wilder's song as they enter the room full of sweets make this movie a lying on the sofa in a dressing gown and a cup of tea classic. ” - davidboydmorgan
