If you can remember what happened in Vegas, your trip blew.
What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas, 'cause there's no way those hookers ever got out of the shallow grave Ayo! Scott dug for them, not bound with all that duct tape. But you don't have to bury escorts alive to have a good time in Sin City—that's just what Ayo! likes to do on a big fight night. The Hangover, the new comedy from Todd Phillips, director of Old School, shows there's lots of other fun shit you can get into while getting smashed in the middle of the desert.
To celebrate their buddy Doug (Justin Bartha)
getting married legally signing his dick and future earnings over to one woman, Phil (Bradley Cooper), an unscrupulous schoolteacher who steals from his students, and Stu (Ed Helms), an emasculated dentist who excuses his girlfriend cheating on him with a bartender, take him to Las Vegas for a wild weekend. Tagging along is Alan (rising star and scene stealer Zach Galifianakis), Doug's awkward brother-in-law-to-be who may or may not be a pedophile and date rapist. What starts as a rooftop toast ends with Phil, Stu, and Alan waking up with massive hangovers in their demolished suite with no recollection of what happened and no sign of the groom. As the odd squad attempts to piece the night together and find Doug or his corpse, they deal with the consequences of having just had the ultimate Vegas experience: a quickie marriage to a hot escort (Heather Graham), a run-in with an effeminate Asian gangster (Ken Jeong), a theft from boxing legend Mike Tyson, and other equally memorable shit they'd forgotten all about.
The Hangover, while not without its minor headaches (Dr. Ayo! recommends three Advil for the pain of Mike Epps jokes falling flat), is too good a time to feel bad the next morning. Plus, there's a valuable life lesson in there: All of life's crises can be resolved by getting blackout drunk. Although you may want stay semi-sober if you're gonna bury some hookers. Some moments are just too precious to forget. Check out the trailer to see if you'll give The Hangover a shot...and a beer, and a couple more shots, and a line of cocaine, and another beer, and...
