Movie Review: The Hangover

Sunday, August 02, 2009
So I've now seen The Hangover twice, and I have to say that it's one of the funniest movies I've seen in a while.

The basic plot - for those who missed the preview - is that the groom and his three best friends (well, two best friends and soon-to-be brother-in-law) head to Vegas for his bachelor party. Fast forward to everyone waking up unable to a) remember anything that happened or b) locate the aforementioned groom.

I would say that what sets this movie apart from all the rest is that none of the characters seem to think the behavior is normal; they're trying to piece together what happened and find their friend and are a little freaked out by what they find. Awkward (and occasionally awesome) situations abound, and hilarity ensues.

Technically, the movie breaks no new ground that I could tell - but the use of music was done quite well to accentuate certain scenes and there were no obvious flaws to find. The writing was solid, the acting was solid, and, in fact, everything worked better than you'd expect in a what-happened-in-Vegas? style comedy.

Final word on The Hangover? See it. See it twice. It's worth it, and you'll laugh damn hard.
