When three friends get together for one last weekend-long bachelor party in Vegas, they think they had a good time. But it's very hard to remember, and they are suffering the dreadful after-effects of girls, party and alcohol. And then they realize they have somehow lost the groom! Now, they must struggle to retrace their wild weekend to find their friend and deliver the bridegroom to his wedding -- even as they suffer from one killer Hangover!]]>
The film is so cheerfully raunchy, so fiercely crude, that the humor becomes as intoxicating as the mind-altering substances. The standout in the ensemble is Zach Galifianakis, who is alternately creepy and hilarious. Ed Helm (The Office), in addition to his memory, loses a tooth in uncomfortably realistic fashion, and Bradley Cooper (He's Just Not That into You) has deadpan comic timing that whips along at the speed of light. "Ma'am, you have an incredible rack," he blares to a pedestrian from the squad car the guys have "borrowed." "I should have been a [bleeping] cop," he tells himself approvingly.
Director Todd Phillips brings back his deft handling of the actors and the dude humor that worked so well in Old School, as well as the unctuous Dan Finnerty, memorable as a lounge/wedding singer in both films. But it's the nonstop volley of jokes--most cheerily politically incorrect--that grabs the audience and thrashes it around the hotel room. Just watch out for the tiger in the bathroom. --A.T. Hurley

The Blu clarity and sound quality are solid and there were no failings even with the volume of night sequences. The desert shots were done adequately so there was no light saturation or blur - overall the presentation in both versions makes them a good investment for being one of the few comedies you might buy on Blu. The unrated runs eight minutes longer and contained nothing that would warrant the usual attraction for being titled as such. By the time they get to the roof to start the night there were four brief sequences added in, including some extra dialogue in the opening house scene, a little more with that abusive girlfriend and a fun spot in the hotel room. The main difference between the two would be a funny one minute scene as they take the tiger back to Tyson's house (elevator addition). Otherwise, there are no R rated additions like some would look for.
The supplements are a mixed bag, and after investing the hour it takes to get through them all (except the commentary) none of them stand out as a must see.
Standard Special Features (2 Disc DVD and BD)
* The missing pictures. 100 added photos from the camera, a few funny ones but they felt like the pics you would screen out before you share with your buddies (10 shots from the same angle, where you get rid of the other 9 and save the best one - they keep the other 9 here).
* Map of Destruction. Has 15 spots they filmed on a selectable icon map that takes you to a brief clip regarding making-of info. The Tyson one was the most interesting for me as the others are all either too short or not interesting.
* Madness of Ken Jeong.Read more ›
From Zach Galifiakanis, we had a stellar show. His ability to play the creepy weirdo is out of this world. His wolf pack speech was amazing.
The cameo from Mike Tyson was hilarious!
Don't miss the end credits where a lot of the missing information is revealed.
So let me preface this (to ward off suggestions that I am a frat boy with a low IQ)with the following:
I'm female and have a doctorate.
This movie was freaking hilarious. I laughed start to finish on this one. It's Old School-scale hilarity. It's crude, it's obnoxious, and it's not headed for the Oscars, it's just headed to a place on my admittedly small shelf of DVDs, to join my collection of go-to movies to smooth over a rough day at work. It will get you out of your bad mood, that's for sure.
The actors had great chemistry, the scenes were outlandish (although looking back on it, their adventures, while outrageous, were actually fairly tame. Want to see a Las Vegas bachelor party gone seriously awry? Watch "Very Bad Things". And yeah, I liked that one, too.), and I laughed just as hard at my second viewing as I did my first. And Heather Graham? Now there is an underappreciated actress. Why doesn't she get more roles? She was great as the good-hearted stripper. Ken Jeong's first scene had me crying with laughter. That guy is funny in everything he is in.
Also, the scene with the baby that so many complained of? It's just a guy acting stupid with a fully clothed baby. It reminded me of something my little brother and one of his nitwit friends might have done when I brought my infant son over. Is he pretending to molest the baby? No. Is he pretending the baby is molesting him? No. It's not child abuse, it's not sexual abuse, and to suggest it is demeans real victims of such abuse, so please get over yourself.
Caveat: My kid is 18, so I would let him watch this movie, but you probably don't want to watch it WITH your kids, regardless of their ages. It might be a little awkward.
The director does a great job setting the stage for a night no one can remember. Each role was cast perfectly with Zach Galifianakis stealing the show. Make sure you don't leave early and miss the slide-show during the credits. Freaking hilarious!!!!
If you are easily offended by crude humor or you, then this isn't the movie for you.
Thank you, Todd Phillips for another over-the-top, laugh-out-loud masterpiece
