Our Score
In a surprisingly inventive comedy that doesn't rely on cheap, gross-out laughs, a stag do in Las Vegas for about-to-be-wed Doug (Justin Bartha) takes a turn for the unusual. This terrific romp from director Todd Phillips sees Doug's three friends (Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms, Zach Galifianakis) wake up after the excessive night before with no sign of the prospective groom and no memory of the evening's events. What they do have is a wrecked hotel suite occupied by a baby and, more worryingly, a tiger. As the befuddled buddies go back over the trail of their wild night (which includes encounters with Heather Graham's stripper and Mike Tyson, playing himself), they soon discover how extreme their escapades have been. It's cleverly plotted and packed with believable dialogue and hilarious situations, which effectively blend the deadpan with the hysterical.


Three men on a stag weekend in Las Vegas wake up after a night of heavy drinking and find they have not only misplaced the groom, but somehow gained a tiger and a baby. Unable to remember the details of the night before, they set about piecing the clues together in the hope of finding their missing friend. Comedy, starring Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms and Zach Galifianakis.
