Review: The Hangover is hilarious

Flixster - Share Movies

Hilarious movie from the maker of Old School and Road Trip. The story is simple enough: two days before his wedding Doug and his three friends head for Las Vegas for a blow-out bachelor party. It's so awesome, they don't remember a thing next morning. Like Doug is missing; there is a tiger in the bathroom; a baby in the closet, a missing tooth, and more. The antics of the three guys as they try to re trace their steps and find out what happened the night before and oh find Doug so he can get married. It's been awhile since I laughed this hard during a movie. The situations these guys get into are non stop. They all are equally funny starting with Bradley Cooper, who I have never really liked in anything before this. He was obnoxious as hell as the fiance in Wedding Crashers. But here he is equally cool and funny as Phil, the married one. It's a perfect role for him and he nails it. Ed Helms is also very good as Stu, the one who loses his tooth and ends up marrying a stripper played by Heather Graham. And then there is Zach Galifianakis as Alan, the bearded one who is so weird it's funny when he just stares and doesn't say anything. About the only one who doesn't get to cut loose is Doug, the groom played by Justin Bartha. Maybe for the sequel he will get to do more. The Hangover is a surprise comedy that never gets too raunchy except for the end credits which kinda get a little graphic. But all in all, this movie is hilarious from start to finish. Plus it has a cameo by Mike Tyson who is actually tolerable for once. One of the surprises of the year.

Phil Wenneck: Tracy, it's Phil.
Tracy Garner: Phil, where the hell are you guys?
Phil Wenneck: Listen, we fucked up. We lost Doug.
Tracy Garner: What? We're getting married in *five hours*.
Phil Wenneck: Yeah... that's not gonna happen.
