It’s not exaggerating to say Warner Bros Pictures’ The Hangover was one of the biggest surprises of 2009. The R-rated comedy took the box office by storm and before it left theaters, The Hangover broke the record for the biggest box office take of any R-rated comedy.
Starring Ed Helms, Bradley Cooper, Zach Galifianakis, and Justin Bartha, The Hangover is a roadtrip/buddy comedy set in Vegas in which everything that could go wrong goes wrong. After a wild night of partying for Doug’s bachelor party, Stu, Phil and Alan wake in their Las Vegas suite to a missing tooth, acrying baby, a tiger in the bathroom and a missing Doug. Over the next 24 hours, they try to piece together their crazy night and find Doug. They encounter many surprises along the way,but, what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas… right?
You know that a movie that successful just had to have a sequel, and so The Hangover: Part II was released on May 26th of 2011 breaking all kinds of records giving it the highest-grossing opening weekend for an R-rated comedy. The Wolfpack is back, only this time they lose a night in Bangkok, Thailand on the eve of Phil’s wedding, losing his bride to be’s little brother, Teddy, in the process. Instead of a tooth, someone’s missing a finger. Mr. Chow is back as Alan’s plus 1 and instead of a tiger, there is a drug dealing monkey to content with.
