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.

By MOVIES REVIEWER

Surprised!

By hockeyratt9
I was initially not at all excited for this movie. The previews looked ridiculous, immature, and repetitive. I was coerced into going with a group of people of varying ages (from 20-55), and I was...

Moronic & crude

By Exjupiter
I took my wife to see a movie last night. We don't get to go by ourselves very much and I thought we would go see a "comedy", a genre that has disappeared for a few decades. We went to see "The...

Hangovers can be HILARIOUS!

By PrinceAndTheRevolution
