The Hangover (2009)
|Released:||Friday, June 5, 2009|
|Rating:||Under 17 requires accompanying parent or adult guardian.|
Two days before his wedding, Doug (JUSTIN BARTHA) and his three friends (BRADLEY COOPER, ED HELMS and ZACH GALIFIANAKIS) drive to Las Vegas for a blow-out bachelor party they’ll never forget. But, in fact, when the three groomsmen wake up the next morning, they can’t remember a thing.
For some reason, they find a tiger in the bathroom and a six-month-old baby in the closet of their suite at Caesars Palace. The one thing they can’t find is Doug.
With no clue as to what transpired and little time to spare, the trio must retrace their hazy steps and all their bad decisions in order to figure out where things went wrong and hopefully get Doug back to L.A. in time to walk down the aisle.

The Hangover Extreme Edition Blu-ray Review
Naturally, once it was released to DVD it was only a matter of time before it got the Blu-ray treatment and not long after that until a deluxe edition hit stores with loads of extra materials. That's what we have here with The Hangover: Extreme Edition. The movie itself looks so crisp through the eyes of Blu-ray though that isn't too much of a surprise considering how well Blu-ray looks on the right screen. Equally good is the sound quality of the movie if anything you may end up turning the sound down at certain points because it comes off so clear.
The deluxe edition boasts two discs. The first being a soundtrack sampler featuring five songs from the movie; the hangover theme song, "Stu's Song" performed by Ed Helms, "Who Let The Dogs" out by the Baha Men, "Stupid Tiger" by Chris Beck, and "Candy Shop" by the Dan Band.
Disc 2 features the unrated and theatrical versions of the movie as well as a picture-in-picture commentary with the stars and director but only on the theatrical versions. A map of destruction following the path the boys took on the night out. Each stop gives you some local history about the place as well as footage of the actual filming. There is a improve sketch featuring Ken Jeong, also a compilation of all the physical comedy from the film. You can re-live the "Three Best Friends" song from the movie, this time with as a freestyle version. If you really liked the cover of the song Fame by the wedding band than you can watch that as well. There is a gag reel, and of course more pictures from the missing camera.
All in all this deluxe edition of The Hangover is well worth the money and well worth the time it will take to watch all the excellent bonus features. Anyone who is anyone should go out and pick up this movie.
