    THE VERDICT:

    Green Tea Bern says:

    Bachelor's party turn into something wild and unexpected can be fun and interesting. The Hangover is fortunately still a good, terrific presentation of how people just want to have fun before their wedding. However, this little journey become too armed and dangerous to be endured. Don't worry, although it sounds horrific but I can assure you that this is a comedic one.

    The Hangover tells the story of four best friends on a road trip to Las Vegas to celebrate the bachelor's party for one of them who is going to get married. However, the party become too wild when they were high on drugs and they found themselves in a difficult and weird circumstances. One of them - the one who is going to married - is missing. They need to recollect their trails and clues, as well as to recollect what had actually happen during the party.

    The plot can be comparable with The wedding Crashers, few years back, due to their highly vulgarity, slapsticks and surprise comedic elements. Both are a runaway hit in the US Box Office but in my opinion, the stories for both are just usual and so-so. Perhaps, what makes them so successful are because of their entertaining joyride.

    The Hangover, although is average in plot, it has a mysteric, unique and strong element of craziness in it. It is a quite typical story of four friends looking for trails and clues to understand what has happen - a little mystery and thrill for you. Humour is quite pleasable, slapshotly good and is dominated with craziness. Although things that appear after the party - tiger, baby, chicken, police car and so on - do not make sense at all, crazily these are able to be answered in an excellent way.

    The casts of four guys seems to be fun and enjoying their road trip so much. They are kind of fun and witty, blending the humour and lame jokes yet again. The chemistry in between them is strong. This comedy itself is funny in all way, flat down. Characterization is clear and the dialogues are witty.

    So, why not give yourself a chance to watch this movie and enjoy their joyride. Yes, it will be fun when it will be finally be released this October. This is a sure must to watch and comedy such as this are hard to find these days.
