The Hangover

The Good: 

The “wolfpack” speech on the roof of Ceasar’s is an unparalleled classic.  The movie version of Mike Tyson’s “Punch Out” video game is priceless.

The Bad: 

Seeing actor Ken Jeong jump naked from the trunk of a car will haunt our dreams for eternity. Truly unexpected.

The Hangover


Mike Tyson has a tiger. What else do you need to know to be enticed? Okay, how about that this stands as the apex of all bachelor party movies. Sure, others came first, but there were rock stars before Elvis and he is the undisputed king.

Doug, the Bachelor (played by Justin Bartha of National Treasure fame), and his best friends jump into his father-in-law’s classic Mercedes convertible and head to Vegas for the last free weekend of his life. His brother in law, played with unholy comic prowess by Zach Galifianakis as if the role were filet mignon and he hadn’t eaten in a month, joins the buddies as well. Phil, an engaged dentist, and Alan, a divorced grade school teacher with the maturity of one of his students, round out the group. And this wild ride is what you could be in for if you lose the Bachelor before seeing your buddy lose a tooth and get married to a hooker and then wake up the next morning with a tiger locked in your hotel bathroom at Ceasar’s Palace.

If you are about to embark on your bachelor party weekend and you haven’t seen The Hangover, set down your bag, click here and watch this movie. Think of it as research for what’s to come.

Bachelor10 Tip: 

Always know what you’re eating and drinking and watch out for the drugs. And remember: Tigers love pepper; they hate cinnamon.
