In honor of 'The Hangover,' Moviefone celebrates 10 of our all-time favorite closing credits sequences -- some that dazzled us with song and dance, others that haunted us with silence, and one that, well, simply talked about porn. img hspace="4" border="1" align="right" vspace="4" alt="" id="vimage_6" src="http://www.blogcdn.com/blog.moviefone.com/media/2009/06/the-hangover-200x225.jpg" />The great 'Memento'-like mystery of freshly-minted box-office champ 'The Hangover' is this: What in the name of all that is unholy did Bradley Cooper and co. get up to during that blacked-out bachelor party? Thanks to the film's ingenious end credits, which reveal everything in a hilarious -- and, frankly, NC-17 -- photo montage, we no longer have to wonder whether Zach Galafianakis hooked up, how Ed Helms lost his tooth or how the hell that angry naked Asian man got so angry (and naked).

'Slumdog Millionaire': Remember how depressing 'Slumdog Millionaire' actually was? No, of course you don't ... because the Bollywood dance number set to 'Jai Ho' during the end credits left audiences smiling -- and dancing -- their way out of the theater.
'There's Something About Mary': Cameron Diaz, Ben Stiller and the rest of the cast -- including pro-footballer Bret Favreau (how do you pronounce that again?) -- entertain immensely with a group rendition of 'Build Me Up, Buttercup.'
'40-Year-Old Virgin': We nearly wet ourselves the first time Steve Carell turned to the camera -- post-coitus, no less -- and launched into a heartfelt rendition of 'Aquarius'Let the Sunshine In.' And the ensuing ensemble dance number, featuring Paul Rudd and Seth Rogen in shirtless 'Lord of the Dance' mode, made us want to scream: "Oh! Kelly Clarkson!"
'Tropic Thunder': A fat, bald wearing Tom Cruise reignited his career with his turn as foul-mouthed studio head Les Grossman. The end credits, during which he booty-dances to Ludacris' 'Get Back,' is just the delicious icing on the mouthwatering comedic sundae that was this performance.
'Just Friends': Ryan Reynolds lip-syncs and dances to All 4 One's 'I Swear' while wearing a fat suit. Think that pretty much says it all.
'Zack and Miri Make a Porno': Though the credits aren't technically rolling during the infomercial for 'Zack and Miri Make YOUR Porno,' the clip it too funny to ignore. Sadly, most of what is discussed and depicted in it is too raunchy to mention, but suffice to say that Justin Long steals the show as a gay porn star talking about his lover's "filthy" but "beautiful flower." Aww.
'Almost Famous': Could Cameron Crowe's homage to '70s rock get any more nostalgic? Oh, it can. As the credits roll, someone (Penny Lane, we think) flips through candid Polaroids from the film as the Beach Boys' 'Feel Flows' plays in the background. Sniffle.
'Michael Clayton': After his man-vs.-Goliath-sized-corporation ordeal is finally over (and that eeeevil Tilda Swinton has gotten her comeuppance) George Clooney hops in a New York City taxi and tells the cabbie to "just drive" -- and we drive along with him in silence. It's a perfectly earned -- and, well, just perfect -- moment.
'Wild Things': Wondered how Neve Campbell outsmarted everyone in this erotic mystery thriller? All the key plot twists -- though no more of Denise Richards' skin (sorry, fellas!) -- are revealed during the final credits.
'Talladega Nights': The Will Ferrell-John C. Reilly outtakes and bloopers included during the end credits of this race-car comedy are, in some cases, funnier than scenes from the actual movie. And for the record, snow blindness in cats scares the s*** out of us, too, Ricky Bobby.
'Ferris Bueller's Day Off': Poor Ed Rooney. First, he fails to catch Ferris in the act of ditching school, then he gets half-eaten by the Bueller dog, and then, to add insult to injury, the bruised-and-battered principal is forced to ride the school bus home. But hey, at least the little girl next to him offers to share her (very warm) Gummi Bears.
Remember, this is just a list of our favorites, so we know we left some great ones by the wayside. What are your favorite end credits sequences? Chime in below.
