Brighten up those post-Thursday-night-on-the-town blues with a laugh at the trailer for Todd Phillips' new comedy The Hangover.
With Heather Graham and Jeffrey Tambor the most recognisable names in the line-up - and with neither appearing in this trailer - you could be forgiven for writing the stag party comedy off before it has even opened - but just hark back to Todd Phillips' classic Old School and you will rethink. The movie's actual stars include Yes Man's Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms (from the US Office), Zach Galifianakis of various random TV shows such as Wonder Showzen and Reno 911 and Justin Bartha (National Treasure: Book Of Secrets).
The film covers old-ground in terms of plot, sounding a lot like Very Bad Things: Man is about to get married. Man takes hotch potch group of male friends to Las Vegas for one last blow out party. Man does lots of bad stuff and is left to face the consequences the next morning.
Except that there is no murder of ladies of the night here and none of the men can actually remember the bad things that the did, so it is all a bit more lighthearted in a mid-thirties Dude Where's My Car kinda way.
There are however, tigers in the bathroom, a baby in the wardrobe and no sign of one particular member of the party - the groom. Check out the Hangover trailer here. Worth a watch for the most hilarious cameo ever!
