The Hangover – Film Review

Filed under: Film Review,Uncategorized — smackamack @ 10:29 pm


the-hangover-01Plot: A blowout Las Vegas bachelor party turns into a race against time when three hung-over groomsmen awaken after a night of drunken debauchery to find that the groom has gone missing, and attempt to get him to the alter before his wedding day. In 48 hours, Doug is scheduled to walk down the aisle, effectively ending his reign as a rowdy bachelor. Realizing that this is their last blow out with their best friend, Doug’s groomsmen organize a Sin City bachelor bash he’ll never forget. The next morning, the groomsmen come to in their Caesar’s Palace suite to find a tiger in the bathroom and a six-month-old baby tucked away in the closet. Unfortunately, Doug is nowhere to be found. With no memory of the previous night’s transgressions and precious little time to spare, the trio sets out on a hazy attempt to retrace their steps and discover exactly where things went wrong. Will they find Doug in time to get him to the wedding back in Los Angeles, or will his bride experience the sharp sting of disappointment when she walks down the aisle to discover that her future husband is nowhere to be found?

thehangoverpic16This movie looked totally shit in the trailer…generic, stupid, etc.  However, I have to admit, I loved it!  The film was just a whole heap of fun!  I don’t want to give anything away, but the actors were great, the writing was funny, and it had some really clever pieces to it!

If you liked Old School you will probably like this film. The film is by the same director, and also about a group of adult men reconnecting with their wild teenage self.   I thought it was just hilarious.  I don’t recommend the film to anyone who doesn’t like stupid comedies…because that’s what it is in the end.  I recommend this film for anyone 16+ who enjoys films like Old School. 4/5 stars.

  1. I went to this solely because my 16 year old couldn’t get in otherwise, expecting it to be tasteless and crappy (like Stepbrothers, which I went to see for the same reason). I agree, Courtney – all caveats firmly in place – art it ain’t, but it is hilarious – especially the last five minutes. I can’t remember the last time I had tears of laughter running down my face at the movies!
