The Hangover is a funny movie, which is something that funny movies have been lacking lately, like Funny People, which does have a funny cast, but fails to be funny. The Hangover also has a a very funny cast, Zach Galifianakis (Alan) in particular. This film is unique, it is very well scripted and detailed, and everything flows naturally, with no need to think, but only to imagine oneself in a similar situation. This movie doesn't necessarily have the best one-liners and jokes, but it does have some hilarious situations that seem so unlikely to happen, that it becomes intriguing and almost mysterious, it makes you want to jump in the screen and help them in their quest to recover their lost memories, erased by a drug called roofie (who Alan put in their Jaggermeister shots thinking it was ecstasy), the same that at the end helps them solve their main issue: find the bridegroom and their best friend, Doug.
The Hangover is another Las Vegas comedic road trip adventure of craziness and male-bonding, drunkenness and carelessness, but it is actually funny in most parts, even when the credits are rolling. And Mike Tyson has a tiger in it!
