They planned a Vegas bachelor party that they would never forget. Now they really need to remember what exactly went down! A baby? A tiger? Why is one of them missing a tooth? And most of all, where is the groom?! What the guys did while partying can't compare to what they must do sober in an outrageous caper that has them piecing together all their bad decisions from the night before-- one hazy clue at a time. Director Todd Phillips (Old School) and an all-aces comedy cast tie one on... big time!
If you like your humor broadside up, hold the subtlety, you'll want to nurse this Hangover with your best buds. The ensemble cast meshes perfectly--it's like a super-R-rated episode of Friends: silly, slapstick, and completely in the viewer's face. When four pals go to Vegas to celebrate the imminent nuptials of one of them, they partake in a rooftop toast to "a night we'll never forget." But they're in for a big surprise: their celebration drinks were laced with date-rape drugs, so when they awake in their hotel room 12 hours later, not only are they hung over, but they can't remember what they did all night long. Oh, and they're missing the groom-to-be.
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
Also on the Disc
If the original Hangover was just the hair o' the dog your funny bone needed, then this unrated version, packed with lots of hilarious and raunchy extras, is your drink of choice. This two-disc set includes the theatrical release as well as the unrated version, which extends the original gags (sometimes a bit too far, even for fans of broad, crude humor) and goes to town with risqué scenes that don't bother with double-entendre. The extras are truly delightful and include a great commentary that involves director Todd Phillips and stars Bradley Cooper (Phil), Ed Helms (Stu), and Zach Galifianakis (Alan). All commentaries should be like this--a great conversation with memorable moments and trivia woven into the viewing of the film, so that the commentary itself takes the front seat. There are lots of great behind-the-scenes factoids revealed here, including the fact that it was Galifianakis's idea to wear a jockstrap early in the film as he's getting dressed, giving the audience a full-on shot of his rear. "It was my idea but I regret it to this day," he says. "Though if you look closely, you'll see that the straps of the jockstrap pull up my cheeks and make them shapely." The commentary is just as fun as the film, and it makes the viewer realize The Hangover was a blast to make as well as to watch. Other great extras include a gag/blooper reel, a close-up of "The Dan Band" (the world's worst wedding band), a great clip of actor Ken Jeong's ad-libbed spiels as the crazed Mr. Chow, and an interactive "Map of Destruction" to show where the guys had their misadventures in Las Vegas. But this Hangover is best experienced strictly as an audience member--and this double-disc set is just the ticket. --A.T. Hurley

The case looks great. The silver details & the mentioned shiny-ness to the back cover make it a pristine Las Vegas riches style Unrated Special Edition. It promises to be like the best 2 discs that anyone could have desired after a 1st watch of the theatrical film, but still didn't seem to include the everything that was expected. It allows just a little more of the story to come to life, though it seems like a little more should've been added to menus. The claimed [100 NEW photos from the missing camera] didn't seem to deliver that many new images. Gag Reel went alright. The feature length commentary was enjoyable, touching on a few interesting notes. A feature that might've been do-able could've been about the use of multiple actors playing baby Carlos/Tyler/Ben or how it was done, through the commentary touched on it enough.
Worth the purchase if the original theatrical ᴅᴠᴅ hasn't already been acquired, possibly if it has too. The digital copy's pretty awesome!
Watch the video review to be lightly educated on an unbagging along with slightly entertained by some of the visual FX or the Blonde moron's reviewing it.
I won't spoil the rest of the story, but the story involves a tiger, a baby, a stripper named Jade (played by the lovely Heather Graham), and an appearance by Mike Tyson.
Although, the second and third parts of this trilogy fail to deliver, the original version should prove to be a timeless classic.
I probably would like it more if it were not so hyped and if I saw it when it came out. I did not think any of the twists were that shocking. It is Vegas, baby. As with most movies now, they also show half the twists in the freaking trailer. Why did that ever start? The trailer is supposed to give you a taste and leave some mystery you want to still see. Trailers now show a plot summary.
