I always wondered why they were called roofies. Cause you're more likely to end up on the floor than the roof. They should call em floories.
Hello I am the movie encyclopedia and if no one else will see it, I will.
This summer, Hollywoods greatest sidekicks Ed Helms (of Office fame), Bradley Cooper (playing the best friend in every romantic comedy) and Zach Galifanakis (great stand up comedian. Was in What Happens in Vegas) came together as leading men in probably one of the funniest and raunchiest comedies of this year, the Hangover.
The Hangover is a simple film in the sense that it doesnt rely heavily on a strong plot but more a general idea and then letting the actors roll with it. Basically its a bachelors party gone wrong. They go to Vegas, go up to the roof, drink Jager bombs, wake up the next morning, and figure out exactly what they did the night before...and where the groom went. The film doesnt bog itself down with a lot of character development or side stories and side plots. Its pretty much what they're telling you is what you need to know. And its good considering it gives you a feeling of your learning along with them, like you the audience member are feeling the after effects.
The characters themselves are really funny. Helms is kind of the straight man, Galifanakis is the funny fat guy and Cooper is the smart ass one in the group. Together they really bring a lot of humor. I laughed from minute one all the way through probably the greatest end credits Ive ever seen with pictures detailing the events of the evening.
Its a funny movie, Its a good movie and its worth seeing. Theres not much left to say but see this movie.
MY VERDICT: SEE IT
