Three buddies wake up from a bachelor party in Las Vegas, with no memory of the previous night and the bachelor missing. They make their way around the city in order to find their friend before his wedding.
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
As a tribute to the film, Rascal Flatts took to Vegas to film their video for "Why Wait", which featured cameos from Scott "Carrot Top" Thompson and Wayne Newton. See more »
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. See more »

On the Warner Bros TV channel (USA/Mexico) there is a version played where Phil shout "paging Dr Nancy" instead of "paging D Faggot". The scene "not at the table Carlos" is removed.
Also the doctor in the hospital says "on the corner of a map and get lost" instead of "on the corner of a map and fuck off"
There are more. Basically this is a highly edited version compared to the UK version. See more »
One of the funniest movies I have ever seen. PERIOD.
I walked into this movie a little hesitant, and man did I feel like a complete tool for doubting Todd Phillips once again.
I was hesitant for quite a few reasons. One being that I was a little unimpressed with the trailer, but trust me, after you see this movie you will realize that most of the movie couldn't have possibly made it into the trailer. Another reason was the writers.... their previous works being The Ghosts of Girlfriend's Pasts and Four Christmases and Rebound. I don't know what they did between those and this but damn did they step their game up.
Now, the movie is hilarious. I have become so used to the thought of the Judd Apatow gang being the only ones to make truly funny films, but I realized very quickly into this movie that I was dead wrong. I think this movie was by far ten times funnier than Pineapple Express, Forgetting Sarah Marshall, Step Brothers, etc. And I find each of those flicks truly, hilariously, funny.
I remember watching Superbad the first time and thinking that that was the funniest movie ever made, when it comes to films with legitimate plots and characters, etc. And maybe Superbad and The Hangover are pretty close, but who knows....
So PLEASE see this film. The audience I saw it with was laughing hysterically every five minutes at least. There is enough one-liners to quote all summer, and enough subtle jokes to laugh about later on that you didn't catch the first time.
OH and by the way, if you love Old School, you will LOVE the ending. That's all I can say.
