Movie Summary

Todd Phillips

The Hangover is a story about groom-to-be Doug and his bachelor party in Las Vegas with wild best friend Phil, uptight Stu, and oddball future brother-in-law Alan. After a blowout bachelor party, the three groomsmen wake up with a trashed hotel, several injuries, and no memory of what happened. As they come to their senses they realize the groom is nowhere to be found, forcing them to try to retrace their steps and find Doug before his impending wedding. The more they uncover, the more trouble they get in and the more unbelievable the night becomes. Asian gangsters and a stolen tiger are just the beginning of the mess they have to clean up before it's too late.

Metacritic Score

  • 90

    Variety Joe Leydon

    At once raucously free-wheeling and meticulously contrived, picture satisfies as a boys-gone-wild laff riot that also clicks as a seriocomic beat-the-clock detective story.

  • 80

    Los Angeles Times

    There is a sort of perverse brilliance or brilliant perverseness to be found in this story of a bachelor party gone terribly wrong.

  • 70

    The New York Times A.O. Scott

    But true to its title, The Hangover goes down smoothly enough and then kicks you in the head later on, when you start to examine the sources of your laughter.
