Storyline

Angelenos Doug Billings and Tracy Garner are about to get married. Two days before the wedding, the four men in the wedding party - Doug, Doug's two best buddies Phil Wenneck and Stu Price, and Tracy's brother Alan Garner - hop into Tracy's father's beloved Mercedes convertible for a 24-hour stag party to Las Vegas. Phil, a married high school teacher, has the same maturity level as his students when he's with his pals. Stu, a dentist, is worried about everything, especially what his controlling girlfriend Melissa thinks. Because she disapproves of traditional male bonding rituals, Stu has to lie to her about the stag, he telling her that they are going on a wine tasting tour in the Napa Valley. Regardless, he intends on eventually marrying her, against the advice and wishes of his friends. And Alan seems to be unaware of what are considered the social graces of the western world. The morning after their arrival in Las Vegas, they awaken in their hotel suite each with the worst ... Written by Huggo

Trivia

Ed Helms, Zach Galifianakis, and Bradley Cooper were all casual acquaintances before the movie was filmed, which Helms said he believed helped in establishing a rapport and chemistry amongst their characters. Helms credited director Todd Phillips for "bringing together three guys who are really different, but really appreciate each others' humor and sensibilities." Helms also said the fact that the story of the three characters growing closer and bonding informed the friendship between the three actors: "As you spend fourteen hours a day together for three months, you see a lot of sides of somebody. We went through the wringer together, and that shared experience really made us genuine buddies." See more »

Very Funny movie especially for male audience
30 May 2009 | by salahuddin125See all my reviews

Humorous movie in every aspect.

I watched the movie at a preview screening at UBC, so the audience were all college students. Everyone I talked to so far had loved this movie.

The tale of how three friends tries to find the lost groom before his wedding after their crazy night in Las Vegas. The movie gets funny from the Las Vegas part right till the end. There is hilarious stuff in every other scene. Not to be missed, one of the best comedy of 2009.

The entrance of Chinese goon is Hilarious, will have you in splits. They have touched on all types of jokes especially the minor mention of the different sex (gay, interracial, beastiality) The only movie that I can think of that is relatively similar is Harold & Kumar. I recommend everyone to watch it (not for kids), you wont regret it.
