Top Critic Reviews
Fresh: There is a sort of perverse brilliance or brilliant perverseness to be found in this story of a bachelor party gone terribly wrong.
- Betsy Sharkey, Los Angeles Times, Friday, June 5, 2009
Fresh: A strong cast, a quirky script with some unexpected twists and a steady hand from the director's chair make this a desert ride on the wild side a worthy road trip.
- Bruce Demara, Toronto Star, Friday, June 5, 2009
Rotten: This kind of 'one crazy night' tale relies on drum-tight structure to work. Without it, The Hangover sputters to a sentimental halt.

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.

Never able to scrounge a dull moment, the Hangover is easily my favourite comedy of this decade. These three guys are what truly make this film work. Their chemistry, the story, the outcomes, the surprises, the laughs, and anything else that you would expect from a brilliant comedy is present in this film. It follows "The Three Best Friends that anyone could have" as they venture off to have a bachelor party in Vegas for their best friend Doug. It may not be the most brilliant film of all time, but it works in more ways than one. I laughed my ass off and that is all I cared about really. These guys are blast to watch and the script is hilarious! I love "The Hangover!"
