I had to skip going to the Steamboat Marathon this weekend after getting bronchitis this week, so Becky and I escaped to see the new movie, The Hangover
today. The Fandango website at The Hangover describes the movie as follows:
“Two days before his wedding, Doug and three friends drive to Las Vegas for a wild and memorable stag party. In fact, when the three groomsmen wake up the next morning, they can’t remember a thing; nor can they find Doug. With little time to spare , the three hazy pals try to re-trace their steps and find Doug so they can get him back to Los Angeles in time to walk down the aisle…”
The Hangover is totally hilarious. I couldn’t stop laughing from the beginning to the end of the movie. Maybe because I kept thinking, “I know these guys. I grew up with these guys and I work with some of these guys”. Be forewarned, this movie will be offensive to a number of people, especially if you get offended by harsh language. The language is pretty rough at times, it’s definitely Rated R for the language and adult situations. It takes place in Las Vegas, so what do you expect? Just be prepared when you go into the theater.
The story is a total riot and the casting was perfect for the situations that these guys find themselves in the film. After getting totally wasted and finding themselves passed out in their hotel room they have to try to figure out what has happened to their friend Doug, who is supposed to be getting married in Los Angeles the next day. It was obviously an insane bachelor party gone wild and the chemistry with these guys and their personalities make for a very funny movie.
Becky is probably embarrassed to admit that she liked it too and many people will ask me how I could possibly like this flick, but if you can lighten up, enjoy the ride – it’s a crackup. I thought it was incredibly funny and I’m sticking to it.
