The Hangover

We went to see the Hangover last night, and despite the fact that it's been out for weeks, the cinema was still full. Is it a sign of the times? Are more people choosing to go to the cinema for a fun, cheap night out rather than hitting the local?

The Hangover centres around the Las Vegas bachelor party of Doug. Accompanying Doug are best buddies Phil and Stu along his future brother-in-law and oddball Alan. The night starts well, but the film quickly moves to the morning after when Phil, Stu and Alan wake up in their hotel suite accompanied by a chicken, some smoking furniture, a baby and a tiger in the bathroom.

Two things quickly become apparent. Firstly they have recollection of the night before and secondly, Doug is nowhere to be found. And so begins a frentic quest to find Doug.

The Hangover is hilariously funny in a way that all teenage gross-out films wish they could be. It is a humourous film for adults. It's not crude or gross, but instead is funny and somewhat naughty. Mike Tyson features in a genius cameo and a great cast of characters (watch out for chinese gangster Mr Chow) make it a worthy trip to the cinema.
