Consensus: 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.

Time Out

An intriguing, time-hopping set-up is wasted on obnoxious characters, celebrity cameos and crass attempts at humour.

There is a sort of perverse brilliance or brilliant perverseness to be found in this story of a bachelor party gone terribly wrong.

In the case of The Hangover, Phillips made a decent diversion, but no classic; like its heroes you'll have a good time, then forget most of it when you wake up the following morning. It's a movie, not a film.

You might be embarrassed by laughing at some of the silliness, but don't be: Everyone else will be cracking up, too.

The Hangover, like the condition for which it's named, has some spirited moments, but more often it stumbles and slurs, regurgitating earlier pleasures and praying for the fog to lift.

... I went in to The Hangover with low expectations but ended up laughing more times than I thought I would.

The movie smells like a hit, but honestly: Helms excepted, did it need to be quite so blandly cast, or quite so lamely raunchy?

Joe Neumaier
New York Daily News

Amusing as it is, it never feels real.

This is lazy, condescending half-assed filmmaking. When in doubt, simply slap a piece of rap music overtop of the action.
