    The Hangover pushes the boundaries of good taste, good sense, and good will toward man. And you'll feel good about it all. show more

    This is a movie where you WANT to stick around for the credits. The beauty is that you are totally set up for it, and you don't mind one bit. That final sequence ties the movie together in an awesome fashion. show more
