Premiere

This is a movie where you WANT to stick around for the credits. The beauty is that you are totally set up for it, and you don't mind one bit. That final sequence ties the movie together in an awesome fashion.

Chicago Sun-Times

By Roger Ebert
A funny movie, flat out, all the way through. Its setup is funny. Every situation is funny. Most of the dialogue is funny almost line by line.

It's a worst-case-scenario of bachelor party morning-after, and it is howlingly funny.

The Hangover pushes the boundaries of good taste, good sense, and good will toward man. And you'll feel good about it all.

Director Todd Phillips (Old School) has a knack for extreme scenarios and outside-the-box casting. He has made a movie that is consistently funny from start to finish.
