Well, if you wanted a cheap but romantic night in with your loved one tonight, you have to rent/buy "The Hangover".
I haven't laughed as much in a long time at a movie. If you liked 'Dude, where my car'? or 'Knocked Up', you'll love this one.
A Las Vegas-set comedy centered around three groomsmen who lose their about-to-be-wed buddy during their drunken misadventures, then must retrace their steps in order to find him. They go the premise that 'what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas' so they're just about up for anything.
Alan, whom I just loved, played brillantly by Zach Galifianakis, spikes their drinks to 'ensure' that they have a night to remember but boy, does it go out of control! The imagination of the writers (Jon Lucas & Scott Moore) is just brillant and these are two guys to watch when it come to Oscar season - yes, it's that good!
I mean who would have thought of including Mike Tyson & his Tiger. Brillant filming & hilarious when when Alan, the morning after, goes
into the bathroom and whilst 'doing his business' cops a sengal tiger staring at him - priceless! Some of the lines in the film may cause offence e.g. Jesus, everyone's gone so PC after 9/11, thanks Bin Laden.... guess, it depends on how you take it.
No-one remembers what happened in the past twelve or so hours. The suite is destroyed & Stu is having a fit as the hotel have his credit card, but that's not their biggest problem as Doug, the groom, has gone missing. As Phil, Stu and Alan try to find Doug using only what little pieces of information they can find or remember, they go on a journey of discovery of how certain things got into the suite and what happened to the missing items. However they are on a race for time as if they can't find Doug in the next few hours, they are going to have to explain to Tracy why they are not yet back in Los Angeles & how they lost her husband-to-be....
So, not wanting to give the plot away, you're just going to have to trust us and get a bottle of vino, a decent take-away, a fire-log and spend some quality time having a laugh with your 'intended' tonight. I guarantee you'll laugh out loud :)
Trust me, you've never had a hangover like this one!!
