The Hangover: A Las Vegas Bachelor Party Movie

April 19th, 2010 · 1 Comment

The Hangover: A Las Vegas Bachelor Party Movie

Is this one of the funniest Las Vegas bachelor party movies ever made? Is this a morning after experience you’ll never regret, or is it just another post-party night headache? 411.com’s movie reviewer Jeremy Thomas gives us the lowdown.

Films about weddings traditionally shoot for the female demographic. It is tradition—in Hollywood, anyway—that a wedding is the moment every woman looks forward to and every man deeply fears, and thus it is no surprise that that the vast majority of films marketed around the matrimonial ceremony are built for the fairer sex. Just in the past year or we’ve had films such as Made of Honor, Mamma Mia!, Bride Wars, Ghosts of Girlfriends Past that have taken the institution of marriage and spun it into female-driven laughs (in theory, at least), and only I Love You Man that’s taken more of a guy-oriented look on the tradition of getting married.

Occasionally however there is that film that comes along that bucks the unfortunately-named “chick flick” trend, making a wedding-related film that tries to appeal to guys as equally as it does women. Enter The Hangover, directed by Todd Phillips and starring Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms, Zach Galifianakis, Heather Graham and Justin Bartha.

The Hangover opens with Phil (Cooper) calling up the about-to-be-married Tracy (Barrese). Phil looks beat up, dirty and run ragged; in the background his friend Stu (Helms) and Tracy’s brother Alan (Galifianakis) sit on a badly-beat up classic Mercedes. Tracy is freaking out because Phil, Stu and Alan haven’t yet returned from a trip with her husband-to-be Doug (Bartha), and the wedding is supposed to happen in five hours. Phil gives a resigned look and says “Yeah….that’s not gonna happen.” From there we move back two days to learn that the four men are in Los Angeles, about to head to Las Vegas for a night out as Doug’s bachelor party.

Stu is a dentist who is henpecked by his shrewish, evil girlfriend of three years Melissa (Harris), while Phil is a prick-ish school teacher who cheats his kids out of money via a bogus fee for a field trip so he can add it to the Vegas weekend fund. Alan, for his part, just isn’t quite right. He’s bright, but has no real social skills to speak of. The four take Doug’s soon to be father-in-law up on his offer to take his Mercedes on the trip. Once they get to the hotel, they toast to the night…one which they wake up from with no memory and no Doug. The groom is missing, their hotel suite is beyond trashed, and there’s a tiger and a baby in the room.

It then becomes a backward mystery as Phil, Stu and Alan try to piece together the wildest night that Las Vegas may have ever seen, encountering among other things a stripper (Graham), a very pissed-off Asian man with no clothes and a tire iron (Jeong), a pair of cops who lost their patrol car (Riggle & King) and Mike Tyson himself as they race to find their friend and get him back to the wedding on time.
