Movie Info

Two days before his wedding, Doug (Justin Bartha) and three friends (Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms, Zach Galifianakis) drive to Las Vegas for a wild and memorable stag party. In fact, when the three groomsmen wake up the next morning, they can't remember a thing; nor can they find Doug. With little time to spare, the three hazy pals try to re-trace their steps and find Doug so they can get him back to Los Angeles in time to walk down the aisle.

  • The Hangover is funny but not deeply so. There's a difference between funny incidents piled up in a line and people who make us laugh because of who they are.

  • The director and his screenwriters have come up with the funniest film to appear in ages. It avoids the predictable crudity and silly laddishness (well, almost) you'd expect, and delights with zinging one-liners and charming performances.

  • This is an above par effort, excellently played and just naughty enough to be thought daring as well as amusingly spiteful.

    June 16, 2009 | Rating: 3/5
  • An intriguing, time-hopping set-up is wasted on obnoxious characters, celebrity cameos and crass attempts at humour.

  • The lads duly lurch from one bewildering crisis to another.

  • It turns out to be every bit as crass, offensive and incorrect as you'd expect, but it's also - gulp! - really very funny an awful lot of the time, as well as bizarrely gripping.

Audience Reviews for The Hangover

  • Dec 06, 2013
    Wild and crazy, The Hangover is an outrageous comedy with non-stop laughs. The morning after an out-of-control Vegas bachelor party three friends have to retrace their steps in order to find the groom and get him to his wedding. Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms, and Zach Galifianakis make for a hilarious comedy team and have great chemistry together. And, the storytelling is really good, weaving a fun mystery full of shocking surprises. The humor gets a little overly crass and vulgar, but most of it works. Full of hysterical shenanigans, The Hangover is incredibly entertaining.

    Intelligently written and brilliantly acted. One of the best comedy films I've seen. This is highly recommended.

    While The Hangover is undeniably crude, well acted, and fun, it also feels a bit overrated. The laughs are there, but they are more chuckles rather than stomach hurting. The Hangover is a good time, but it is slightly overrated.

    It's definitely funny at times, but in the end, all of it screams: "mediocre." There's nothing remarkable here. Just a string of hit-or-miss jokes.
