The Hangover: BD (2-DISC/BIL/DIG COPY)
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.

The Hangover might be seen as a funnier update of "Dude, Where's My Car". The same basic framework applies with some changes. Three guys now, instead of two, must retrace their steps after one wild night. Doug's about to get married in two days. Problem: Doug is missing. Doug must be found. Best men Phil (Cooper), Stu the dentist (Ed Helms) and the creepy but sweet Alan (Zach Galifianakis, a guy I've never heard of before) have some clues and a deadline. The wedding looms.
As much as Cooper is the star of this movie, is it Zach Galifianakis who steals the show. He gets all the best lines, and he is the victim of the most punishment as the quest goes on.
There are a couple notable cameos: Jeffrey Tambor (Arrested Development) is "the dad" (does he always play dads now?) and Ken Jeong (Knocked Up, Role Models) is...I'd better not say what he is. Heck I don't even know what he is and I've seen the movie three times now. And then there's Mike Tyson, singing a Phil Collins song. And air-drumming.
Special features on the 2-disc edition are worthwhile. Ken Jeong's improvised stuff is pretty good, but the real corker are the 100 photos from the "lost camera". These 100 photos alone are worth buying the 2-disc version.Read more ›
