Production

."I think part of what's special about this movie is that none of the comedy comes from the characters being clever, like you see in a lot of sitcoms or movies, where the characters actually have a funny sense of humor.^ If you do not think this movie was one of the better comedies in a long time, you really do not have much of a sense of humor.

Writing

.The plot was reportedly inspired by a real-life event that happened to Tripp Vinson, a producer friend of The Hangover executive producer Chris Bender.^ The movie was entertaining and yes we understand that it wound never happen in real life.

Vinson had gone missing from his own Las Vegas bachelor party, blacking out and waking up "in a strip club being threatened with a very, very large bill [he] was supposed to pay".[8]
.The original script written by Jon Lucas and Scott Moore sold to Warner Bros.^ Of course, as well-constructed as the film's journey is (from a script credited to Jon Lucas and Scott Moore, but reportedly extensively re-written) it also helps that we care about the trio of leads.

He said the most difficult day of shooting was the scene when Mr. Chow rams his car and attacks the main characters, which Helms said required many takes and was very painful, such as when a few of the punches and kicks accidentally landed and when his knees and shins were hurt while being pulled out of a window.[7] The missing tooth was not created with prosthetics or visual effects, but is naturally occurring: Helms never had an adult incisor grow, and got a dental implant as a teenager which was removed for filming.[14]
Phillips tried to convince the actors to allow him to use a real taser until Warner Bros. lawyers stepped in.[15]
.Regarding the explicit shots in the final photo slide show in which his character is seen receiving fellatio in an elevator, Galifianakis confirmed that a prosthesis was used for the scene, and that he had been more embarrassed than anyone else during the creation of the shot.^ Nudity (male full frontal and rear, female bare breasts) occurs in several scenes, and still photos show a woman performing oral sex on a standing man, while images of other sexual behavior are also seen.

The scenes involving animals were filmed mostly with trained animals. Trainers and safety equipment were digitally removed from the final version. Some prop animals were used, such as when the tiger was hidden under a sheet and being moved on a baggage cart. Such efforts were awarded with an "Outstanding" rating by the American Humane Association for the monitoring and treatment of the animals.[17]

Casting

.Helms, Galifianakis, and Cooper were all casual acquaintances before The Hangover was filmed, which Helms said he believed helped in establishing a rapport and chemistry between their characters.^ Phillips is back on familiar ground here -- men behaving very badly -- and it works here even better than it did in Old School thanks to the plot and setting making a comedy cocktail of intoxicating power even before Cooper, Helms and Galifianakis give their all.

Critical reception

The Hangover has received primarily positive reviews. It holds a 78% positive response rating on review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes, based on 193 professional reviews, with the consensus that "with a clever script and hilarious interplay among the cast, The Hangover nails just the right tone of raunchy humor, and the non-stop laughs overshadow any flaw."[25] Film critic Roger Ebert gave it three and a half stars out of four, stating "Now this is what I'm talkin' about. .The Hangover is a funny movie, flat out, all the way through.^ What "The Hangover" did, was give the audience a flat-out, bonafide comedy experience.

Its setup is funny. Every situation is funny. Most of the dialogue is funny almost line by line."[26]
Among those who did not like the film were Richard Corliss of Time, who thought "virtually every joke either is visible long before it arrives or extends way past its expiration date" and added, "Whatever the other critics say, this is a bromance so primitive it's practically Bro-Magnon."[27] In his review in the Baltimore Sun, Michael Sragow called the film a "foul mesh of cheap cleverness and vulgarity,"[28] and Joe Neumaier of the New York Daily News rated it 2½ out of 5 stars and noted, "Amusing as it is, it never feels real. That may not seem like a big deal — a lot of funny movies play by their own rules — except that The Hangover keeps doubling-down on the outlandishness."[29]
Many critics noted the weak character development, especially in its female characters.[30] .Ebert, despite his praise, stated, "I won't go so far as to describe it as a character study" but that the film is more than the sum of its parts - parts that may at first seem a little generic or clichéd,[31] since many other films (such as Very Bad Things) have already explored the idea of a weekend in Vegas gone wrong.^ CAST AS ROLE MODELS: Considering what occurs in the film (profanity, wild and sometimes unlawful behavior, drinking, sexual behavior and such), it's unlikely many, if any parents would consider any of the major characters as good role models.
