I was not quite sure with this to start. Zach Galifanakis playing a character lost somewhere between the Rain Man and The Dude and suddenly the jokes began to open up and make me laugh. The comedy film you have here feels in tune with the comedy era of the 80s. (lots of inuendo aimed at class barriers and repression) Perhaps it was the Las Vegas shots, the screen casting, and the 'wannabe' enjoying life again sountrack that I liked, but overall it was a good film. I was expecting more "twists in the script" but the jokes made up for it. I think I would watch this again.

A hilarious, consistently funny movie featuring a show stealing performance from Zach Galifianakis. What could've been a formulaic, overdone look on a subject we've seen done many times before -- hangovers, is wisely avoided by a smart comedic director (Todd Phillips), as he spices up the dialogue with unique one-liners, as well as many interesting and ridiculous scenarios. Although the film produces a glaring plot hole near its ending, it doesn't ruin the overall experience, as Phillips tosses his three characters into impossible situations, while at the same time humanizing them so we care what happens to them. A red-hot summer comedy.
