It may have been over a decade since the release of The Hangover, but the movie is still one of my favorites to date. The first movie kicked off the drunken misadventures of Phil (Bradley Cooper), Alan (Zach Galifianakis), and Stu (Ed Helmes), who find themselves waking up in a hotel room in Las Vegas with blurred memories of the night before. The trio gets into some sticky situations while attempting to find their lost friend and deliver him back on time for his wedding.
