Holy, if any movie deserves to be on my list of top comedies, it’s The Hangover. I love this movie- it’s a movie that I had no idea was going to be so amazing going in. It’s an R rated comedy in every sense of the word, so don’t go into this one thinking it’s going to be a church service.
“The Hangover” is the tale of a bunch of friend’s who are want to have a Las Vegas Bachelor party for their bud. They end of having to bring along Alan (Zach Galifianakis), who is a wildcard as a mentally deranged individual who just wants them all to have a good time. Unfortunately, his idea of a good time is not exactly the same as any sane man’s good time. It involves him roofie-ing them, and the group of friends wake up groggy and hungover- and missing their groom to be.
Every time you think that things can’t get more messed up, they do. If you’ve ever woken up in the wrong bed wondering “What happened last night”, then you can relate to this movie. Watching them piece together the tattered pieces of their ridiculous night is funny enough, and the characters that they met in their most epic night end up meeting up with them throughout the film, kind of like “Dude, Where’s My Car”, except “Dude, Where’s my Groom”, and way funnier.
Check this R rated comedy out, it’s one of my favourites of all time, and it’s no surprise it came first in my list of the Top 5 Drinking Comedies.
