The Hangover (2009)


Movie Review

Directed by: Todd Phillips

Starring: Zach Galifianakis, Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms, and Justin Bartha

To celebrate his pending nuptials to his fiancée Tracy (Sasha Barrese), Doug (Justin Bartha) goes with his friends Phil (Bradley Cooper) and Stu (Ed Helms) to Las Vegas for a bachelor party.  The trio reluctantly brings Tracy’s brother Alan (Zach Galifianakis) with them on the trip.  When they get there, the drinks flow, and the fun begins.  The following morning, Phil, Stu and Alan wake up to realize they don’t know what happened the night prior and that they can’t find Doug.  They scour Vegas to find their friend so that he doesn’t miss his wedding.  The Hangover is the most outlandish film you can find.  It also may be one of the funniest.  It takes the theme of everything going wrong during a trip to Sin City to new lows.  Though the film gets a 0.03% rating because you’ll never stop laughing, it deserves more alcohol than that.  This crude affair deserves some hard liquor; wine coolers simply won’t get the job done.
