Film Only Review:
Doug (Justin Bartha) is about to get married to his sweetheart Tracy (Sacha Barrese) and is going on his last little break of freedom to Las vegas with her brother Alan (Zach Galifianakis), and his mates Stu (Ed Helms) who is a dentist and his other mate, a teacher, Phil (Bradly Cooper).
They decide to take the road trip to L.A in a car borrowed from Tracy and Alans dad (his pride and joy) and go to stay at Caesars palace overnight.
Off they go for a night out starting on the roof of Caesars palace drinking a shot each and thats where we leave them till the following morning when their suite is looking like a bombs hit it with cans and bottles everywhre however thats not the worst of it! There is a tiger in the bathroom, a chicken wandering about like he owns the place, a baby in a cupboard and a mattress on a statue outside the hotel. Worst of all the car has gone missing along with their memories and the groom!
So what can you do? Well with no memory of the night before you have to try retrace your steps of course but with little to go on and the date of the wedding the next day you better work it all out fast right?!
We go on a mad adventure and disaster after disaster trying to put the pieces together. The tiger is stolen from a top boxer who isnt happy about it or Alan peeing in his pool after it all being captured by his security cameras. Theres been a wedding and the baby belongs to the new wife of one of the men but who is she, where is she and the biggest problem...well one of them has given her a ring meant to be for his actual girlfriend. Why is there is a naked man in the boot of the car when they find it going mad and later why does he want 80000 dollars from them or someone may die? There biggest problem is still looking for Doug why have they got no car and a police car and when they get arrested can they get out of it, they need to find Doug!? Where is Doug and will one of them remember in time for his to get married bliss?
If you seen Bridesmaids this is like the mens version of that though a hell of a lot funnier in fairness and me and my mate loved this film. Its funny, it flows and Zach stole the whole show for me, making me giggle even when he'd said or done nothing. His character was so funny, efiminate and a butt of a lot of jokes. Leslie Chow who was the chinese gansgster in the film, who was originally the naked man in the boot was so flamboyant and hilarious with his speech and manner too that I'd like to see the actor that played him (Ken Jeong) in other things and will be looking out for his name in future.
Yes in places it did drag slightly but the comedy moments and rude, expressive language did make up for it and my mate gave this film a mighty 5 out of out of 5, me a little less generous 4 out of 5 due to the slight dragging of its feet in the middle of the story. It was nice to see Caesars palace in all its glory and finery and am glad I own this one as I am sure I will watch it time and time in the future!
Rated 15, run time of 100 minutes.
Summary: A must see and I cant wait to see the hangover part 2 now!
