||Four friends go on a stag night to Las Vegas, taking over a pentouse in Caesar’s Palace. The first thing they do is go on the roof and toast their friendship. The next thing they remember is waking up in the penthouse in the morning with a chicken, a tiger and a baby and finding the groom and the groom’s father’s prized Mercedes missing. Can they find their friend (and the Mercedes) in time for the wedding?
||A fair bit of bad language and interaction with the police as the friends try to find out what they did and hence where the groom might be. Some car chases and crashes. Some fun interaction with the baby. Scenes in the casino, in a hospital and with the mother of the baby who is a stripper. And more… (Oh and there is a lot of rudery in the photos which accompany the closing credits.)
||Watched with my wife, and we both laughed more than the Kermode standard for a comedy – six times. The finances say it all. An estimated cost of $35,000,000 with a return up to the end of 2009 of $277,313,371 !!
