Critic Reviews for The Hangover
An intriguing, time-hopping set-up is wasted on obnoxious characters, celebrity cameos and crass attempts at humour.
You might be embarrassed by laughing at some of the silliness, but don't be: Everyone else will be cracking up, too.
The movie smells like a hit, but honestly: Helms excepted, did it need to be quite so blandly cast, or quite so lamely raunchy?
There is a sort of perverse brilliance or brilliant perverseness to be found in this story of a bachelor party gone terribly wrong.
The Hangover, like the condition for which it's named, has some spirited moments, but more often it stumbles and slurs, regurgitating earlier pleasures and praying for the fog to lift.
Audience Reviews for The Hangover
What makes this hilarious comedy stand out is that it boasts all together well-developed characters, non-stop laughs from beginning to end and an absurd, unpredictable plot that should certainly make this movie be regarded in the years to come as a classic cult comedy.
Very funny movie about the day after a batchelor party. Four friends go to Vegas for a batchelor party. They wake up the next day to find Mike Tyson's tiger in their hotel room, a baby boy, a missing tooth, someone got married (not the groom), a hospital wrist band and the groom is missing. They have to try to piece together the night before, to find the groom and get to the wedding on time. I love the police car scenes and the poker scenes. This movie is a bit like Dude, Where's My Car and Very Bad Things. Great cast. Stay on at the end to watch the snaps from the night before. Hilarious!
The Hangover is one of the most memorable and hilarious comedies of the last ten years. Todd Phillips has made the best film of his career and he assembles a great cast of talented actors that deliver some hilarious performances. The jokes are great, and the film is entertaining and original. I really was surprised at how good this film turned out to be. When I originally saw this film, I went expecting something that wouldn't be that great, I was pleasantly surprised. This is a near flawless comedy that boasts some great on-screen comedy and it is a film that is entertaining from start to finish. There is nothing really to dislike here, if you want a funny film, and then gives this one a shot. Todd Phillips delivers a great film, one that shows how talented he is in terms of creating something hilarious, while telling an interesting story. The Hangover is not a masterpiece, but it is one of the best comedies that manages to bring on effective laughs and memorable on-screen moments. If you're tired of uninspired comedies and you enjoy amusing comedies that will keep you laughing from start to finish, then this is the film for you. The Hangover is memorable and it is a guaranteed good time that you're sure to enjoy. Skip the sequels, they are not worth your time, but definitely check this one out. Todd Phillips direction is great, and with that being said he has a good understanding of how to make a worthwhile comedy. The Hanover is a great film, one that is refreshing and just hilarious from the first frame onwards.
