Two days before the wedding, the four men in the wedding party – Doug, Doug’s two best buddies Phil Wenneck and Stu Price, and Tracy’s brother Alan Garner – hop into Tracy’s father’s beloved Mercedes convertible for a 24-hour stag party to Las Vegas. Phil, a married high school teacher, has the same maturity level as his students when he’s with his pals. Stu, a dentist, is worried about everything, especially what his controlling girlfriend Melissa thinks. Because she disapproves of traditional male bonding rituals, Stu has to lie to her about the stag, he telling her that they are going on a wine tasting tour in the Napa Valley. Regardless, he intends on eventually marrying her, against the advice and wishes of his friends. And Alan seems to be unaware of what are considered the social graces of the western world. The morning after their arrival in Las Vegas, they awaken in their hotel suite each with the worst hangover. None remembers what happened in the past twelve or so hours. The suite is in shambles. And certain things are in the suite that shouldn’t be, and certain things that should be in the suite are missing. Probably the most important in the latter category is Doug. As Phil, Stu and Alan try to find Doug using only what little pieces of information they have at hand, they go on a journey of discovery of how certain things got into the suite and what happened to the missing items. However they are on a race for time as if they can’t find Doug in the next few hours, they are going to have to explain to Tracy why they are not yet back in Los Angeles. And even worse, they may not find Doug at all before the wedding.
Plot: When three friends finally come to after a raucous night of bachelor-party revelry, they find a baby in the closet and a tiger in the bathroom. But they can’t seem to locate their best friend, Doug – who’s supposed to be tying the knot. Launching a frantic search for Doug, the trio perseveres through a nasty hangover to try to make it to the church on time.

Genuinely funnier than any comedy in recent memory
Most great comedies are based on fundamental truths — we find a deal of humour in the illumination of our own human tragedy. Office Space is funny, for example, because we’ve all worked that type of job, put up with that type of boss, and suffered that type of monotonous everyday boredom.
Todd Phillips’ new movie, The Hangover, is as aptly titled as anything else released this year: it’s about a Vegas bachelor party gone horribly awry, in which the groom inexplicably disappears, no one can remember a damned thing, and Mike Tyson wants his tiger back.
Yes, we’ve all had those nights, though perhaps not to such extremes (that’s where the exaggeration of comedy serves us). The Hangover is funny because it takes this cultural ritual — an American tradition; something almost all of us can relate to — and finds genuine humour in the pain of its aftermath.
I concede that bachelor party movies are not in short supply; the genre (if it is, indeed, a genre) should have probably both begun and ended with the Tom Hanks flick almost three decades ago. But The Hangover wisely studies the day after rather than the day itself; this is funnier because the plot works backwards, without tacky flashbacks, and much of the evening in question is left to our imagination.
While it would be misleading to claim this is a brilliant film (in either regard – as comedy or character study), it’s an assured picture that finds its footing immediately and achieves a surprising level of sustenance throughout its running time. And frankly, let’s be honest, this is a breath of fresh air: it’s one of the best R-rated comedies of the decade, and certainly the most uproarious since Superbad was released two years ago. Most R-rated comedies produced today are defiant; the R-rating has become a hindrance to film studios’ sensibilities – everything is PG-13, saving the shameless Unrated schpeel for the DVD cut. The occasional theatrically-released R-rated comedy, as such, is infrequently modest; the ads stress the rating to remind us what we’ve been missing. For every legitimate offer, such as Forgetting Sarah Marshall, we’re treated to movies like College that attempt to lure us into theaters based on the promise of raunchy decadence. The problem is that it’s all so coldly calculated; these films are not funny because a majority of the time they are simply lazy and dishonest.
The simplest reason for The Hangover’s success in being genuinely funny is the fact that it achieves a rare balance of character and vulgarity. We laugh at the characters’ misfortunes because we like them, we empathize with them, and they are distinctly actualized. Are they stereotypical? To a certain degree, sure: we have the repressed pussy-whipped guy who obeys his girlfriend’s every command (Ed Helms); the weird John Belushi-esquire figure who speaks in non sequiturs and naïve absurdities (Zach Galifianakis); and the womanizer whose confidence renders him automatic leader of the group (Bradley Cooper). It’s a testament to the strengths of these actors that they make their characters endearing and believable, even in the face of total lunacy.
Helms has been an underrated highlight of the American Office for the past several years, never quite earning the praise he deserves. His character on the show is played with pitch-perfect perversity: he’s not overtly creepy (like the program’s other weirdo, Creed), but rather subtly unnerving. Helms invests a great deal of nuance into what is ostensibly a throwaway, supporting goofball; this movie, if nothing else, will justly reveal his talents.
Cooper uses his looks to his advantage: it’s funny to watch handsome people exploit their securities. Cooper essentially turns your typical Leading Man figure into a bumbling idiot, self-absorbed and clueless. It’s effective, he’s got great chemistry with the other guys, and it’s fun to watch such an immoral and ruthless character take center stage in a mainstream comedy.
Galifianakis, a cult comedian who I’ve admired for years, has been struggling quite a while. Not many people other than myself and Sean Penn saw his 2001 comedy Out Cold, probably because it wasn’t all that great; but he was easily the most amusing aspect of the picture. He once described himself as being gifted by the opposite of the Midas touch, with more than a few canceled TV shows to his credit (including Comedy Central’s unheralded Dog Bites Man), but it seems his persistence has finally paid off: he has discovered, at last, a movie of strong enough quality to reflect his talents. Galifianakis has a fair share of the film’s funniest dialogue; as far as fat funny guys go, many of them (such as Chris Farley) made the ill-fated mistake of playing dumb in a sharp fashion: hurtful quips and silly one-liners, all self-aware. Galifianakis plays his character straight and the laughs are subsequently heartier; when he embraces his brother-in-law while nude, the act seems innocently awkward rather than deliberately awkward, and that’s what makes it so funny. He’s described in The Hangover, by another character, as a child with a beard. Imagine how funny it is when he names a Caucasian baby Carlos, without any shred of condescension or knowing humour.
The Hangover is surely destined to become the sleeper comedy hit of 2009, and, more likely, a cult flick in the years to come. It’s more deserving of such acknowledgment than many recent successes, and while we may live in an era saturated with unnecessary sequels, I actually left The Hangover hoping to see these guys again. And that’s a rare feeling these days.
This 2009 comedy is actually a rather enjoyable one and better yet is the fact that it is a movie that can be watched numerous times, as it keeps being funny. But of course, with an impressive comedy cast as it has, then it is a sure given that it would be enjoyable.
The story in “The Hangover”, briefly summarized is about a group of friends who travel to Las Vegas in order to have a bachelor party for their friend Doug who is about to be married. And as the saying goes, ‘what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas’, comes to a test, the men are in for time in Las Vegas that they will never forget… If only they can remember it.
What works for “The Hangover” aside from the storyline and the countless hilarious moments and scenes, is the impressive cast list, which includes names such as Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms and Zach Galifianakis. These three guys are hilarious together on the screen, and they brought so much to the screen with their individual roles and characters. I think that having Ken Jeong in the movie was just great, because he is hilarious and really spiced up the movie tremendously.
The movie is nicely paced and never really slows down once it hits the high gear. So strap yourself in and get ready for a hilarious ride through Las Vegas.
I was more than genuinely entertained by “The Hangover”, and I was laughing a lot throughout the course of the entire movie. I have watched it three times already and the movie continues to be entertaining and as funny as the first time you’ve seen it.
If you enjoy comedies, then “The Hangover” is a good choice, because it really is funny. And if you haven’t seen it already, I can warmly recommend that you take about 100 minutes to sit down and watch it.
