See “The Hangover”
In the tradition of frat-house comedies like Old School, Bradley Cooper (He’s Just Not That Into You), Ed Helms (The Office), and Zach Galifianakis (Tru Calling) play three groomsmen who, after a raucous bachelor party, wake up to a trashed hotel room, a tiger in the bathroom, a baby in the closet, and a missing groom (National Treasure’s Justin Bartha). Can they find the husband-to-be in time for the wedding?
