Synopsis


The Hangover
A blowout Las Vegas bachelor party turns into a race against time when three hung-over groomsmen awaken after a night of drunken debauchery to find that the groom has gone missing, and attempt to get him to the alter in time for his wedding. In 48 hours, Doug is scheduled to walk down the aisle, effectively ending his reign as a rowdy bachelor. Realizing that this is their last blowout with their best friend, Doug's groomsmen organize a Sin City bachelor bash he'll never forget. The next morning, the groomsmen come to in their Caesar's Palace suite to find a tiger in the bathroom and a six-month-old baby tucked away in the closet. Unfortunately, Doug is nowhere to be found. With no memory of the previous night's transgressions and precious little time to spare, the trio sets out in a hazy attempt to retrace their steps and discover exactly where things went wrong. Will they find Doug in time to get him to the wedding back in Los Angeles, or will his bride experience the sharp sting of disappointment when she walks down the aisle to discover that her future husband is nowhere to be found? Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms, Zach Galifianakis, and Heather Graham star in a rambunctious comedy from Old School director Todd Phillips. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

    Great movie, lackluster Bluray

    Posted

    The Hangover has been getting rave reviews and many commenters giving it "instant classic" status. So a great movie, but a terrible use of the Blu ray format. There is no insert to speak of, no special packaging, no nothing. You open it up and you get a bluray, no questions asked. If not for the constant price specials on this item, it would be horribly overpriced. The movie itself is decent but the sound, even with the latest codecs, garnishes no real audio sound benefits over dvd. Speaking of DVD, that is exactly what this Bluray feels like. The amature attempt at a menu still has the hard clipped (and cheap looking) icons of DVD menus. You won't even get a vignette of moving imagery or clips to half amuse you, you'll just get a flat title screen. Extras are also the biggest joke. The highlight of the extras are the "extra photos" from the camera. While entertaining content, it was presented in an incredibly cumbersome and simple manner. I've seen 10 year old movies redone in Bluray with better extra content and highlights than this. For purists (who could care less about extras) a good buy just for the movie, but you definitely won't be impressed with anything else. For those who buy Blurays for the step-up in quality and extras, not the best buy. Make sure you buy it on sale for under $17 or you're paying a premium for content that isn't there.

    5 of 5 stars for the comedy The Hangover. Let's see, take four guys (one to get married in two days), add Las Vegas, some drugs, shake well and you end-up the next day in a hotel suite with strippers, a tiger, a trashed room, a missing mattress, a missing front tooth, a live chicken and a missing bride groom. What's the problem? Noone remembers what happened--nothing, nada, zip. This movie is about the quest to learn what happened last night--and to find Douggie (the bride groom). The three remaining guys set-out to unwind the nights events, including a trip to a wedding chapel, discovery of a new wife (former stripper) for one of the three guys and a visit to the home of Mike Tyson (the boxer). This is a very funny movie with extreme moments and odd ball surprises. Two buckets of nuked popcorn are a must for this funny movie! Well made, extremely well written (who thinks of this stuff??) and really fun to watch. OK, a spoiler (not): Where did the live chicken in the hotel room come from??? They never explained that one. I highly recommend this movie; however, it is for mature audiences, lots of adult stuff. Oh, the infant found in their hotel room was a professionally trained stunt baby, so noone was hurt.

    ost 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.

    "Were the 3 best friends that anyone could have." This movie will have your side split open with laughter and when its not destroying your funny bone it will shock you until your floor hits the ground. Hangover is nothing but a non stop barrage of great moments and shocking scenes all strung together in a great story and unforgettable adventure. You spend most of the movie trying to figure out how certain things happened. Like how did a lion get into the bathroom or why is the recliner still smoking from last night? Its nice to see a comedy come out every once in a while that pushes all your senses and maybe your buttons. This movie looks to take you on the journey with the characters by confusing the viewer as well. Zack G. is a show stealer. The rest of the cast are firing on all cylinders as well. Don't rent this... BUY IT! You will want to see this over and over again. Most of it will be missed because you will be on the floor in tears of laughter.

    I had my reservations about this movie. However, after watching it three times I still find it hysterical. OK, so its not a "FILM" and its not meant to be. Its four guys, looking for a good time in Vegas. The wolf pack speech is straight comic genius, if you're not a guy between the ages of six to ninety you wont get it, if you are a woman then believe me this is no exaggeration of what happens at MOST bachelor parties, albeit, not always in Vegas. The movie is slapstick, so if watching people fall on ice or some one walking into a glass door because they're texting or a toddler hitting daddy in the family jewels with his playskool hammer doesn't amuse you then perhaps this movie is not for you. Other than that you will be asking your friends if they have seen the movie, those that have cant stop talking about it and those that havent will soon be part of the wolf pack when they do watch it!

    I still have no idea why I though "The Hangover" would be a dumb/stupid watch, but I pre-judged and felt bad. I never pre judge films, but I don't really like slap stick comedy, or that over the top force you to laugh garbage Hollywood sometimes puts out...Why I was late to the hangover trilogy I do not know. I originally thought that it was going to be some slapstick film and grabbed all three of the hangover trilogy films in the $5 throw away bin. I couldn't have been more wrong than anything about a trilogy. From the hangover part 1 to the end of part 3 we were laughing to the end. These films were worth buying a long time ago! So if you haven't watched them yet, give them a shot! You won't be disappointed!

    I really enjoyed this movie. The actors, location, and soundtrack definitely get you into the movie and leave you wanting to head back to Las Vegas. If you are looking for plot, character development, yadda, yadda, yadda, look elsewhere. This movie was made to entertain you and make you laugh; it does exactly that. The actors Bradley Cooper (Wedding Crashers, Midnight Meat Train), Ed Helms ("The 'Nard Dawg" on The Office), Justin Bartha (National Treasure, Failure to Launch) and Zach Galifianakis (Corky Romano, several TV shows) are great, but I think that Zach makes the movie. His character is just so odd and says and does the most inappropriate things that you can't help but laugh. The Blu Ray features bloopers and some crazy, hysterical scenes from Ken Jeong (Mr. Chow).

    It's about four friends who go to Las Vegas for a bachelor party.Alan(Zach Galifianakis) puts roofies into their drinks explaining their memory loss,so they have no clue what happen the night before.When they wake up they find Mike Tyson's tiger in their bathroom,chicken in the room,a baby in the closet,Doug(Justin Bartha) is missing,Stu(Ed Helms) tooth is missing,and is married to a escort,and more crazyness.The movie is pretty funny with laughs coming out of left field,like the naked asian man(Ken Jeong) in the trunk of their vintage Mercedes.Some of the acting is a little over the top form some actors.Their trying to put the pieces of the puzzle together to find Doug so they can get him to his wedding in three hours.
