This is one hangover you are going to want to have over and over again. The Hangover is a comedy about three friends (Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms, Zack Galifianakis) who take their other friend (Justin Bartha) on a weekend stay in Vegas before his wedding, but after a crazy night of fun, the three friends wake up hung over, not remembering anything from the previous night, and their soon-to-be-wed pal missing. They trio embark on a crazy trip across Sin City to find their friend, and try to remember what happened the night before.
Director Todd Phillips (of Road Trip & Old School fame) has created a comedy for the ages. It never stops bringing on the hilarity. The movie is crude, raunchy, and flat-out jaw dropping in parts, but that’s what makes it funny. I’m not gonna say much about the jokes (there are a bunch), but you won’t be disappointed. Be sure to stick around during the credits (some of the funniest parts are during the credits). I will say the whole cast was great (even Mike Tyson was funny), but Zack Galifianakis stole the show. He really deserves some kind of award for his performance. It was true comedy goodness. This movie is definitely one of the summer’s best to offer.
