Product Description

From Old School director Todd Phillips comes a comedy about a bachelor party gone very, very wrong. Two days before his wedding, Doug (Justin Bartha) drives to Las Vegas with his best buddies Phil and Stu (Bradley Cooper and Ed Helms) and his future brother-in-law Alan (Zach Galifianakis), for a blow-out bachelor party they vow they'll never forget. But when the three groomsmen wake up the next morning with pounding headaches, they can't remember a thing. Their luxury hotel suite is beyond trashed and the groom is nowhere to be found. With no clue about what happened and little time to spare, the trio must attempt to retrace their bad decisions from the night before in order to figure out where things went wrong, in the hope of finding Doug and getting him back to L.A. in time for his wedding. But the more they begin to uncover, the more they realize just how much trouble they're really in.

The HangoverThe HangoverThe HangoverThe Hangover


If you like your humour broadside up, hold the subtlety, you'll want to nurse this Hangover with your best mates. The ensemble cast meshes perfectly--it's like a super-R-rated episode of Friends: silly, slapstick, and completely in the viewer's face. When four pals go to Vegas to celebrate the imminent nuptials of one of them, they partake in a rooftop toast to "a night we'll never forget." But they're in for a big surprise: their celebration drinks were laced with date-rape drugs, so when they awake in their hotel room 12 hours later, not only are they hung over, but they can't remember what they did all night long. Oh, and they're missing the groom-to-be.

The film is so cheerfully raunchy, so fiercely crude, that the humour becomes as intoxicating as the mind-altering substances. The standout in the ensemble is Zach Galifianakis, who is alternately creepy and hilarious. Ed Helm (The Office), in addition to his memory, loses a tooth in uncomfortably realistic fashion, and Bradley Cooper (He's Just Not That into You) has deadpan comic timing that whips along at the speed of light. "Ma'am, you have an incredible rack," he blares to a pedestrian from the squad car the guys have "borrowed." "I should have been a [bleeping] cop," he tells himself approvingly.

Director Todd Phillips brings back his deft handling of the actors and the dude humour that worked so well in Old School, as well as the unctuous Dan Finnerty, memorable as a lounge/wedding singer in both films. But it's the nonstop volley of jokes--most cheerily politically incorrect--that grabs the audience and thrashes it around the hotel room. Just watch out for the tiger in the bathroom. --A.T. Hurley

3.0 out of 5 stars Sin City smiles 11 Dec 2009
Well, this was a couple of notches less special than I had been expecting. I had read several private and professional reviews and my expectations were pretty high, but very little in the film managed to live up to the hype.

It's not exactly a road movie, simply four guys going to Vegas for a bachelor weekend (or a stag night as we would call it here) and inevitably getting into trouble. Although the night itself isn't shown, one thing that's not in question is that all four of them got very drunk and the next day can't rememember what happened - and one of them is missing: the groom, no less. So he has to be found in order to get him to the church on time.

There are some moments that made me chuckle, quite a few to be fair, but I thought it was going to be hilarious and it was never quite that. In fact, the comedy elements were underplayed if anything, and the film as a whole was as much of a drama, maybe even a suspense mystery at times, and this was a constant surprise. Not as big a surprise however as the absence of any moments that made me holler with laughter. And I was ready to do just that, indeed I was expecting it. The main four characters probably had the ability to do it, but the script didn't allow them to. Some of the peripheral characters, notably the Chinese gangsters, were just camp and let down the good work put in by the main players.

I've heard this film being described as one of the funniest films of 2009. If that's true - and it might be for all I know - then standards must be slipping. Actually, the Madagascar 2 DVD was released in 2009, and I can say without hesitation that it was a whole lot funnier than Hangover, even if it is a whole lot different.

So, three guys on a stag party in Vegas wake up the morning after the night before with a tiger in the bathroom, no memory of the previous night and no groom. They start trying to track back through the previous night in an attempt to find the unfortunate groom and save the wedding day.

It's a great premise, and the method of revealing their actions to us and the characters through a series of oddball encounters is an interesting one that gives this a fresh feel. You feel as though you are stumbling around in the dark with them.

It has some funny set pieces, but I have to say that I found a lot of the film puerile, filled with that running around screaming for no apparent reason that seems to be mistaken for comedy more and more these days. Many of the situations are too cringingly embarrassing to watch. But there are some great moments, with genuinely hilarious touches. And the film is worth watching just for the cabaret singer at the end - he seems to be a Sinatra wannabe channelling the Mighty Boosh's Bob Fossil.

In all three stars. An OK watch, but uneven with some really funny bits mixed with some totally unfunny stretches, all with a decent premise and an interesting story telling method.

5.0 out of 5 stars Redefining comedy! 8 Mar 2012
I am a big comedy fan, but lately I have been highly disappointed with Hollywood's take on the genre. However, The Hangover is a breath of fresh air, in an ocean of bad and cheesy comedies. It is genuinely funny! And what I like most is the fact that you need to watch the entire thing, in order to know how it's going to end (this is a quality most movies lack nowadays).
The dialog is hilarious, the four lads are all so wonderfully weird and twisted, the plot is full of suspense and when you think you've seen it all, something bigger and badder happens.
It's a really great movie!

5.0 out of 5 stars "..BEST COMEDY OF 2009.." 28 April 2012
There was not allot of great comedy films out in 2009, THE HANGOVER is certainly the best. Lots of genuine laugh out loud moments and stupid silly antics that the cast get into! Lots of very good features on the disc too for your money.

5.0 out of 5 stars Modern Day Classic Comedy 18 Aug 2014
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Brilliant, what else can I say? Had it already on DVD, but when I got a Blu-Ray, had to have this cult film, due to being the un-cut version & extras, but also I had a list of modern day classic & new releases I wanted to be part of my own personal new Blu-Ray collection & this was on that list, very funny along with the follow up; Hangover 2 although Hangover 3 is absolute rubbish & seemed a very rushed production with not much real thought going into the story & script.
