Running Time: 100 mins

The Hangover is an American film about a group of friends who go to Las Vegas for a stag party, and wake up the next day completely hung over, and the man who is to be married later in the day is lost in Las Vegas.

This was really funny. I thought that it was just completely ridiculous and farcical, and nearly every scene in the film was a little bit crazier than the last.

This is quite an original idea for a film, as I have not seen another with a storyline as ridiculous as this, incorporating a tiger in the bathroom, a baby having to be taken care of by a drunk, and an evil Chinese gang boss, who was just utterly crazy.

Also, the ending was very unexpected, which made it a nice twist, rather than being the same predictable end, so that’s why it was so enjoyable, and that’s why it gets a 7.8.
