The Hangover

A movie review from The Bleacher Bum

The Hangover: Sometimes a movie knows what it is and doesn’t try to be anything more. The Hangover is that type of movie. It doesn’t try to send a message; it doesn’t try confuse with twists and turns; and it surely doesn’t pull on the heart strings. All it does is make you hurt with laughter. It honors the long-standing American tradition of the debaucherous Las Vegas bachelor party. And it pulls no punches. One of the guys is getting married. The groom and the three groomsman travel to Sin City to party. A chicken, Mike Tyson (Tyson), a baby, a stolen cop car, Rain Man’s suit, a mattress, and an unpleasant naked kidnapped Asian gangster are left in their wake. (Make sure you stay through the credits.)
