The Hangover is one of the greatest examples of a perfectly carried out Hollywood comedy which is really made astonishing by Todd Philips and the amazing cast.
Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms, and especially Zach Galifianakis were amazing as Phil, Stu, and Alan.
The Hangover Movie Review
The Hangover is the story of four friends, one of them is getting married after two days so they decided to go to Vegas for a bachelor’s party night. They are drugged and wake up the next day to find Doug missing ( who’s getting married ).
They must find Doug within 24 hours or the wedding is going to be canceled. They all forget what happened last night and one by one find out the events that occurred.
Zach Galifianakis acted really great in this film along with Bradley Cooper. The world-famous boxer Myke Tyson also appears as himself angry at the three friends for stealing his tiger.
Todd Philips, the director of the film also had a cameo as Mr.Creepy in an elevator scene.
The Hangover was widely praised and commercially successful grossing around $400 million from a budget of $35 million.
The Hangover II Movie Review
This one too is directed by Todd Philips and it’s a good thing if the original director works on the sequel.
It’s mainly because he knows more about how to carry out stuff and comedy. This one surely is more comic than the first and will make you laugh harder at times.
The Hangover II is surely good enough to watch and some critics might say that this one is not as good as the first one. Of course, the film is focused around an even i.e. The Hangover after being drugged and repeating it again makes it look uncommon and unnecessary at times.
But we are talking about the fun, right? Yes, this one has a big budget than the first one and has some crazy chase sequences.
Dialogues are funnier and comedy is increased. A non-spoiler plot idea of the film is given below.
Stu is getting married in Thailand and his to be Brother In-law gets lost after the bachelor’s night.
The three of them i.e. Phil, Stu, and Alan must find Teddy in 24 hours or Stu’s marriage is not happening. Mr.Chow from the first film adds into the strongest comedy points in thwherevero9oo
His charisma is great and unique all the time he appears on the screen. He makes us want to go wherever he is going.
Talking about commercial success then, despite, some negative reviews – this film grossed more than the first Hangover movie and collected $568 million on a budget of $80 million.
The Hangover III
Again directed by Todd Philips, this one is the last and final installation in The Hangover trilogy. Overall, the series has been very funny.
One of the most iconic characters has been Mr. Chow who always comes to disturb the normal life of our Trio ( Maybe not Alan ).
This part is not based on the trio’s hangover concept rather It is a chase comedy between Mr.Chow and the three guys – Stu, Alan, and Phil. Doug is taken away by a guy named Marshall who has a backstory linked to the first Hangover movie.
This one surely has many more stunts trying to catch up as a big franchise film. Hangover III is focused around saying goodbye forever to fans and establishing a happy ending for Alan as well.
Comparing all three Hangover movies, the second installment was surely more enjoyable than the other two.
The third Hangover movie grossed $362 million on a budget of $103 million. This time, they surely were expecting more that’s why they increased the budget. If It had crossed 500 million or something, they would have surely continued it.
Overall, the series has been a joy ride of entertainment and if you love buddy movies then don’t miss The Hangover for sure!
