It's not exaggerating to say Warner Bros Pictures' The Hangover was one of the biggest box office surprises of 2009. The R-rated comedy took multiplexes by storm and before it left theaters, The Hangover broke the record for the biggest box office take of any R-rated comedy, grossing $277 million in the U.S. and $467 million worldwide.

Starring Ed Helms, Bradley Cooper, Zach Galifianakis, and Justin Bartha, The Hangover is a roadtrip/buddy comedy set in Vegas in which everything that could go wrong goes wrong during a bachelor party for Bartha's character.

But, hey, what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas...right? Not when they need to be back in California for the wedding in a matter of hours and the groom is nowhere to be found. If only the remaining trio could piece together what had happened the night before and find the groom!
