Why Watch? Things go wrong and things go wrong and things go wrong in this very funny short where a hangover gets a smile and a bow tie. He’s sweet, but he’ll still make your head pound and cut the heels off your shoes. And his name is Charles.
Charles, Your Hangover is a series of shorts, and this first entry shows a lot of promise with a charming asshole and a driving comedic performance from Lauren Lapkus (Orange is the New Black). It’s slapstick with an elementary school audience as a teacher wakes up from drinking too much wine during her paper grading session the night before.
It’s also a great idea to turn a hangover into a living, breathing person, but it’s shocking that he doesn’t get punched in his smug mouth every second of this 3-minute short.
What Will It Cost? About 3 minutes.
