Doug Billings and Tracy Garner are about to get married. Two days before the wedding, Doug and his groomsmen hop into Tracy's father's Mercedes for a 24-hour stag party in Las Vegas. The morning after their arrival in Vegas, they awaken in their Caesars Palace hotel suite each with the worst hangover. No one remembers what happened in the past twelve or so hours. The suite is in shambles and Doug is missing. Phil, Stu and Alan try to find Doug using only what little pieces of information they have at hand and go on a journey of discovery. However, it's a race against time since they need to find Doug and get him back to Los Angeles in time for the wedding.

Three men. One trip to Las Vegas. One big hangover where they don't know where they are or what happened. One of the greatest box-office hits in 2010, The Hangover is full of comedy and plot to get the audience involved and curious. The movie is like a winding path, going through the adventure that was taken in Las Vegas. With its wacky characters and twists, The Hangover succeeds as a great movie.

This movie while being humorous, was very spontaneous and didn't really clearly make sense until the end. Though I was slightly confused due to the events happening so fast and random, I did enjoy the jokes and the ending was satisfactory. I think this movie was definitely a good watch.

this movie franchise steals from the premises in "The Sins of Harold Diddlebock" A film with Harold Lloyd, a silent film star. If you watch is you will see all the ideas that were stolen right down t its basic premise on which this movie is named the hangover. Its a wonder there weren't lawsuits.

On the eve of his wedding Doug is treated to one final “boys night out” in Las Vegas courtesy of his two best friends; Stu, a henpecked dentist whose control freak girlfriend has a bigger set of balls than he does, and Phil, an irresponsible teacher planning to make a few bets using the field trip money he collected from his students. Also tagging along is Allan, Doug’s future brother-in-law, a badly damaged slovenly man-boy. Checking into a luxurious villa suite at Caesar’s Palace the four men start the night with a few toasts of Jagermeister and then----oblivion. Waking up the next day horribly hungover and with no recollection of the night before the three buddies discover their suite has been completely trashed and Stu is missing a tooth. What’s more, there’s a chicken roaming the livingroom, a tiger growling in the bathroom, and a crying baby abandoned in the hallway closet. Doug, however, is nowhere to be found. Using the few clues at their disposal the men try to retrace their steps of the night before leading to a few startling revelations as they meet the wacky owner of a wedding chapel, tangle with an effete Asian crime boss, go toe-to-toe with Mike Tyson, and get tasered by a couple of pissed off cops whose cruiser seems to be in their possession. But beneath all the big-budget effects and frantic adult language this is really the cinematic equivalent of an all-night kegger aimed squarely at the college fraternity crowd. The only potential laughs came at the very end with the discovery of Doug’s digital camera and its trove of incriminating pictures. In an effort to fill in some narrative gaps and explain exactly what happened that fateful night the director tosses some of those photos onto the screen during the closing credits where we’re treated to an assortment of bare breasts, a prosthetic penis (wow, unrated versions rule!), and surprise cameos from a few Las Vegas mainstays. Unimaginative, juvenile, and looking like it was slapped together overnight, The Hangover goes for quirky but settles for mediocre. They never did explain where the damn chicken came from.

Boy am I ashamed to have this movie on my library record (hi NSA!). It was beyond horrible. Sophomoric lad humor that seems to have been thought up by aging character disordered frat boys. The only good female character was the cliche' "whore with a heart o' gold". The other women were a raging bitch girlfriend (probably meant to represent "feminists" as seen by the most craven and fragile of male egos), the bride who was definitely portrayed as having the potential to morph into "feminist" at some point in the not too distant future, and a wife who makes her man "die a little inside every day" (though the wife of the character who said this was affectionate and seriously hot-looking?). Even worse there was jokes about pedophilia, and Zach Galifianakis's character making a baby boy pretend to be jerking off (how was that even legal to depict?!) The rest was predictable and sad. There was not much talent, and even less group chemistry in the acting. The saddest actor was Mike Tyson, who can't even convincingly portray himself (too much brain damage, one presumes, from boxing or tertiary stage syphilis?). The movie itself was sad and awful, but the end sequence was icing on the whole foul pile; it will make you want to take a course of antibiotics after watching it. And please note that there is actual pornography in this part, which I was very dismayed to see, and it was not mentioned anywhere with any surprise in the media, and no warning beforehand. I so did not want to see Zach G's erect phallus being worked over by some (obviously real-life) hooker. In other words, this movie is NOT family-friendly by any stretch of the imagination. If this is what Americans think is cute and funny today, then it's no wonder the rest of the world hates us. Very depressing indeed. If you MUST watch this movie, take some "roofies" first, so you won't remember it later. I sure wish I had!!

One of those rare comedies that manages to contain originality.

This is funny but not unbelievable. Can't wait to see the next installment.

I do not recall ever laughing out-loud in this over-rated movie about random "crazy" hapenings. Just because I can relate to some of the crazy sh*t that occurs, does not mean that I found any of this to be funny.
It gets 1star/5 just for having the witty Zack Galifinakis.

This movie was so funny! I loved it, but it is very crude, so I wouldn't recommend it to children.

Black Doug: It's funny, 'cause just the other day, me and my boy, we was wonderin' why they even call 'em roofies. Y'know what I'm talkin' 'bout?
Stu Price: No. Don't know what you're talkin' 'bout.
Black Doug: Why not floories, right? 'Cause when you take 'em, you're more likely to end up on the floor than the roof. What about groundies? That's a good new name fo' 'em.
Alan Garner: Or how 'bout rapies?

[playing piano and singing passionately] "What do tigers dream of when they take their little tiger snooze? Do they dream of mauling zebras, or Halle Berry in her Catwoman suit? Don't you worry your pretty striped head, we're gonna get you back to Tyson and your cozy tiger bed. And then we're gonna find our best friend Doug, and then we're gonna give him a best friend hug. Doug, Doug, oh, Doug, Dougie, Dougie, Doug, Doug! But if he's been murdered by crystal meth tweakers....well then we're shit out of luck." - Stu Price

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?
