About Last Night

I've been to Las Vegas twice, but thankfully, I've never experienced anything quite as crazy as what you'll see in The Hangover. This movie — a sort-of cross between Very Bad Things and Dude, Where's My Car? — is about a bachelor party gone very wrong, and how the morning after, three guys attempt to piece together what happened the night before (and find the groom, who has gone missing). The unlikely trio of Bradley Cooper (Alias), Ed Helms (The Office), and Zach Galifianakis (Between Two Ferns) generate plenty of laughs — to spoil any of them would just be cruel, although there are a bunch of clips available on the web that ruin a few surprises. No matter. If you've seen the movies Road Trip or Old School, both of which were directed by Hangover director Todd Phillips, then you have a pretty good idea of what to expect. This is a very funny comedy that served its purpose after a night of drinks for my birthday. I'm giving The Hangover a solid B.
