The Hangover (2009)


Bradley Cooper
Ed Helms
Zach Galifianakis

Directed by Todd Philips

The thing that made this movie so good is that nobody saw it coming, these three guys who seemed to be lost in a world of adulthood get stuck with a baby and a missing Groom and a wedding that they need to get too, while they have no idea of what happened the night before. The movie delivers a shocker in the acting area and the script was funny to the core, that you don’t feel you have seen this movie till you watch it a second time.

The Hangover was a big financial success and it helped propel the careers of the three lead actors, making more than 12 times its production cost, the studio just had to make a part II, which was not as good as this initial one, as it featured same people doing practically the same thing that led to what happened in the first hangover.

The movie plot was inspired by a real life event that happened to Tripp Vinson (a movie producer); Tripp had gone missing from his own Las Vegas bachelor party, blacking out and waking up in a strip club. Jon Lucas and Scott Moore took the tale and drafted a script which they sold to Warner Bros. for over $2 million. The movie director Todd Phillips, went ahead to add additional elements to the script to put in more life into it and extra adventures, he added such like Mike Tyson and his tiger, the baby, and the police cruiser.

The movie plot is about Vegas gone wrong; Doug (Justin Bartha) and Tracy (Sasha Barrese) are about to get married so Doug’s two best friends Phil (Bradley Cooper) and Stu (Ed Helms) decided to take him for a bachelor party in Vegas tagging along was Tracy’s brother Alan (Zach Galifianakis).

While in Vegas, the four had a night out, and then the worst thing happened they woke up the next day knowing they had the time of their lives but can’t remember what happened. To make it worse, there is a Tiger in the bathroom, the groom Doug is missing and they are with a baby whom they know not where he came from.

The movie was shot in like two weeks and it is a must watch to all movie lovers that is for sure, there is plan to make a third Hangover movie, the part II was released in 2011 it was not as critically accepted as the first, but the box office sales was just as impressive so with that on their side the studio will be taking a chance with a part three. Filming of The Hangover Part III began in September 2012 and is set for release in May 2013.
