The Hangover – 4 stars
The Hangover. I expected a standard, raucous dude-flick, and I got one with inspired sequencing and a few very funny set pieces. Four men start a Bachelor Night in Vegas with a toast, wake up with no memory, and one of the quartet is missing; we don’t see what happened, and they have to re-create their exploits through clues, such as receipts, casino chips, hospital armbands, etc . . . When the adventure ends, during the credits, a camera is found and their evening is better explained through a series of hilarious photos. All four actors are hilarious, and Mike Tyson contributes a great cameo (how often can you say that?).
