The Hangover Review

Premise:
Doug (Justin Bartha) is getting married so he has his bachelor party in sin city, Las Vegas, with friends Phil (Bradley Cooper), Stu (Ed Helms), and zany brother-in-law Alan (Zach Galifanakis). Unfortunately, soon after checking into their hotel, the gang has a celebratory drink on the roof and black out soon after. When they wake, their entire night has been full of debauchery and craziness, but they remember none of it. To top this all off, Doug is completely missing! So the final three members must back-track the occurances of their night to find the groom.





Standouts:
There are so many things that strike you about this movie as you watch it. The laughs-per-minute is a huge number, so you'll be thoroughly entertained from start until the end. On the flip side, because of certain cameos, I'm not sure how well this movie will stand the tests of time, but for the next twenty years or so, this is a great movie. It even has some Heather Graham nudity, and she is T-a-s-t-y: Tasty.


My Highlights:
Anything to come out of Zach Galifanakis' mouth. There is an endless amounts of highlights in this movie. Not to mention this film practically made the career of Dr. Ken.


Overall Rating:
Due to the high amount of jokes in such a short amount of time, you'll be entertained more than enough. I give this film 4 *'s.


When You Should See It:
Wait for it to hit DVD around December of 2009 and definitely give it a rent. It may not be a run-out-and-buy DVD however, because who knows how many times you'll want to watch it. Everyone should see it at least once.
