Similarly one may ask, are the Hangover movies good?

It is the highest grossing comedy ever. Terrific cast: Ed Helms, Zach Galifianakis, Bradley Cooper, Ken Jeong and great support/cameos throughout (Rob Riggle) It got good reviews, not great, likely due to the immaturity of it and serious reviewers would be uncomfortable giving it too high of praise.

Similarly, what should I watch on Netflix when hungover? And no, before you ask, The Hangover isn't on Netflix at the moment – sorry.

  • Fight Club (1999) Picture: 20th Century Fox.
  • The Big Lebowski (1998) Picture: Gramercy.
  • The 'Burbs (1989) Picture: Universal.

Accordingly, is it a real tiger in the hangover?

In real life, Mike Tyson owns seven tigers. A real taser was originally going to be used in the taser scene, but lawyers from Warner Brothers demanded that the crew use a prop. Mike Tyson revealed that he appeared in the film to fund his drug habit, and that he was high on cocaine when he filmed his scenes.

Is there a 4th Hangover movie?

It looks like there won't be a fourth 'Hangover' film. The distant prospect of a fourth film in The Hangover series has been dismissed by Ed Helms, who clarified that the chances of another Hangover movie being made were “between zero and zero”.

Why is there no hangover 4?

The Hangover, which was obviously intended to be a one-off, turned into a trilogy. A trilogy that had severely diminishing returns at the box office. It's probably for that reason that the possibility of Hangover 4 happening is non-existent.

Is Bradley Cooper friends with Zach Galifianakis?

Before they were part of the Wolf Pack on “The Hangover” or even sat “Between Two Ferns,” Zach Galifianakis and Bradley Cooper became BFFs on Galifianakis' short-lived VH1 series, “Late World with Zach.” The chemistry between Galifianakis and Cooper is undeniable. They even share a telepathic connection.

What room did they stay in the hangover?

Forum Tower Emperor Suite
The suite featured in “The Hangover” was actually constructed on set for filming (pretty sure Caesars has a strict no-tiger policy), so you can't book THE suite, but it was based heavily on the two story Forum Tower Emperor Suite at Caesars Palace.

Who wrote Stu's Song from The Hangover?

The Hangover - "Stu's Song"
Between takes Ed Helms would fool around on the piano that was part of the set, and try to make the cast and crew laugh. One day, director Todd Phillips suggested to Helms that he write a song about the tiger, which would serve as a breath in the narrative.

Why is there a chicken in the hangover?

"The chicken is the great McGuffin of "The Hangover." It's never explained. But, you know the only reason it's there is because . . . He says that we stole the chicken to feed the tiger." Helms goes on to theorize that the chicken is a "symbol of chaos," with possible "Bunuel-esque" overtones.

Can Ed Helms really sing?

He sings and plays guitar and banjo on "The Lonesome Trio," his bluegrass group's eponymous debut disc that drops Tuesday, June 16, and also features Jacob Tilove on mandolin and Ian Riggs on bass. While this is Helms' first album, it's not the first time you've heard him sing.

How did they film the tiger in the hangover?

This scene was filmed in separate shots. One trainer hid inside the police car while another trainer doubled as the actor and walked the tiger down the driveway and into the car. He appeared to shove the tiger into the car by pushing on its rear end.
