Three men and a baby? Not Quite

Three men and a baby? Not Quite

Movie : The Hangover

Director : Todd Phillips

Starring : Brad Cooper, Ed Helms, Justin Bartha, Zach Gailfianikis

Well, this is definitely one movie worth watching. Todd Phillips, the comic stalwart (Starsky and Hutch, Road Trip) is back with this 100 minute laughathon.

The story is similar to Dude, Where’s my car, but minus the aliens and lame jokes and with much more hilarious insanity. I’m not saying it’s a ripp off of Dude, but the story is definitely not original.

The humour though, is. Four guys decide to go to Las Vegas to have a big fun filled Bachelor’s Party and wake up the next morning with a lot of things….A tiger in the bathroom, a baby in the closet, missing teeth and above all…no recollection of the previous night.

Thus starts their hilarious journey to find their missing friend (the groom). The movie is filled with sex-comedy, some of it disgusting but most of it rip-roaring hilarious. Seriously, this movie is one of the funniest I’ve ever seen.

Zach Gailfianikis is spot on as the totally stupid Alan, the brother in law – to be of Doug played by Justin Bartha. His loser character is responsible for most of the laughs in the film. Ed Helms as “Doctor Faggot” Stu is another quirky character who wants to be treated like a Doctor though he is a dentist.

Totally wasted, Stu gets married to a gorgeous Heather Graham What Happens In Vegas style. One madcap situation leads to another and before you know it, Mike Tyson is on screen punching out Alan’s lights.

This movie is a laugh a minute ride that you wish will never end.

WATCH THIS FILM IF: You want to see a hilarious movie with friends. Do not take ur parents along because the copius sex jokes will undoubtably make them uncomfortable.

DONT WATCH THIS FILM IF: You think throwing a condom around in a car is disgusting.

Warning: Copius sex jokes, language
