“The Hangover” which came out in theaters this Summer, June 5th, 2009, is scheduled for release on DVD/Blue-ray today, October 6th, just in time for harvest and only a trimester and a month after being in theaters (***EDIT: Voldemars got his dates mixed up. This is scheduled to be released for DVD/Bluray Dec. 15th. We got a ways to wait still). It is definitely worth the price of a rental (or the time to download and burn onto a blank 25 cent DVD). It is clever, witty, action-packed, & downright hilarious. It is by far the funniest movie I have seen in 2009 & beyond…even though it does not have a star studded cast. In fact, the only name I even recognize from any other film is Heather Graham, from back in the day when she was a teenager playing the role as the beautiful, head turning, prepubescent, teenage heartthrob ‘Mercedes’ in the 80′s movie “License to Drive”. And just like a fine wine, she has matured beautifully & deliciously with age to the post-pubescent hottie she is now. Just like the blockbuster “300″ this film proves that you don’t need a cavalcade of famous-ass actors as a prerequisite to produce a great movie. This film had me laughing from the beginning to the side splitting end. Even the credits trickling down the silver screen, which display the drunken digital camera snapshot evidence of the quadruple alcohol & Ruffie induced black-ed out events of the evening, had me chuckling to the point of a hemorrhaging ulcer-like stomach pain, and were perhaps the best laughs of this non-chick flick. This movie starts out with four guys traveling to Vegas for a bachelor party. Three of which are best friends; the fourth is a mildly retarded & semi-pedophiliactic brother-in-law, who is not allowed within a football field’s distance of Elementary Schools and Chuckie Cheese’s. After a painful night of drinking, smoking, gambling, hospitalization, grand theft auto, jungle animal abduction , illicit drug use, a demonstration of the testicular & facial effects of 50,000 volts from a police taser, unorthodox tooth extraction, illegal card counting, a crowbar across the bridge of the nose from a penis-less oriental man, a cameo appearance from Mike Tyson, the administration of a date rape drug to a quarter ton cat, a infant discovered in a closet, deliberate swimming pool urination, the physical threatening of a random geriatric citizen, a failed attempt at blood-brotherhood, and many other forms of debauchery. Doug, whose wedding is right around the corner, turns up missing, with his cell phone in the room, they have no way to get a hold of him…They have to retrace their drunken stumblings to try to find their friend and get him back home in time for the wedding. Their only clues to Doug’s whereabouts are: his heavily soiled mattress on top a gargoyle ten stories above the famous Vegas strip, a hospital wristband, and an 800 dollar receipt from Belagio. It is like “Dude where’s my Car?” …but more like, “Dude where’s Doug?… This movie is hilarious and a must have addition to of anybodys DVD collection that loves comedies…
Some funny goof’s in the movie are:
-During the scene with Mike Tyson, you can see the reflection of the crew and equipment in Phil’s sunglasses.
-During the scene in the convenience store, right after the clerk gives the total for the purchase, a boom mic can be seen at the top of the screen for about half a second.
-When the guys push the car to Mike Tyson’s house, lighting equipment, the camera and crew members are reflected on the side of the car.
-As the stolen cop car drives up onto the Vegas sidewalk, you can clearly see the camera crew from the reflection in the marble building as they dolly along with the car.
-During the first fight with the Chinese guys the camera crew can easily be seen in the reflection of the bus stop in the background.
This film is Rated R for pervasive language, sexual content including nudity, and some drug material.
