When three friends get together for one last weekend-long bachelor party in Vegas, they think they had a good time. But it's very hard to remember, and they are suffering the dreadful after-effects of girls, party and alcohol. And then they realize they have somehow lost the groom! Now, they must struggle to retrace their wild weekend to find their friend and deliver the bridegroom to his wedding -- even as they suffer from one killer Hangover!

Funny, yes, but chock-full of alcohol-fueled adult content.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that this hilarious but extremely raunchy comedy from the director of Old School is decidedly not for younger teens. Let's face it: The movie's whole premise involves drinking and being drugged. There's lots of comedic violence, sex, substance abuse, and over-the-top language. While you could stretch and suggest that there's a message about friendship and responsibility, that's like suggesting that Twinkies and soda contain some vitamin C. Still, this movie is turning out to be the teen buzz movie of the summer of 2009. Parents also need to know that this review is for the rated version of this film.
