The Hangover - A short review

After ages comes a movie that's funny, outrageous at times and thoroughly entertaining from the first to the last minute. In a sentence, the plot can be summed up as a debauched Las Vegas bachelor party gone wrong where the three groomsmen try and find the groom and get him back in time for his wedding.

That's easier said than done, because the way director Todd Phillips has crafted each scene is immaculate, to say the least. Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms, Zach Galifianakis and Heather Graham star along with Justin Bartha, the groom, in this laugh-riot that can make you laugh till your stomach aches.

You'll be surprised to catch Mike Tyson in his cameo role. Full marks to the tight and rivetting screenplay. And a pat on the back to Todd Phillips for making this movie more rowdier and fast-paced than his previous film, Old School.
