Synopsis from DVD Cover:
They planned a Vegas bachelor party that they would never forget. Now they really need to remember what exactly went down! Whose baby is in the closet of their Caesars Palace suite? How did a tiger get in the bathroom? Why is one of them missing a tooth? And most of all, where is the groom?! What the guys did while partying can't compare to what they must do sober in an outrageous caper that has them piecing together all their bad decisions from the night before - one hazy clue at a time. Director Todd Phillips (Old School) and an all-aces comedy cast bring it big time with unpredictable situations that somehow all fit together. Tie one on with The Hangover.

Quick Review:
If I had a nickel for every person who told me that I'd pee my pants laughing at this movie, or some other hyperbolic endorsement of hilarity, I could retire. Now, I did not pee my pants, or bust a gut, or weep with laughter, or anything else that I was promised. It was a funny movie. I laughed. But it wasn't quite the overachiever of amazing amusement that I was promised. What it is is a long shaggy-dog story, in which three bachelor-party groomsmen find themselves in intriguingly puzzling circumstances (a tiger in the bathroom, a police car on their valet ticket, and one of them's missing a tooth) with no memory of what happened, and they must reconstruct their night of debauchery. Oh, and the groom seems to be missing.

The problem with this is that the explanation can never quite measure up to the mystery. Why was that piano stool dangling from the ceiling? How did they get into these crazy situations? We're never quite sure. We get stick-figure sketches of what actually happened, but a lot of things aren't clear (or as clear as they ever are) until we see some of the photos from a recovered camera, which play over the end credits. Even then, it just seems like a wild and crazy night of the sort that only happens in movies. Not to mention a lot of things to have happened in an unrealistically short period of time. Yeah, I know I'm nitpicking a slapstick bachelor-party movie. I can't help myself.

The leads are pretty hilarious and the dialogue is sharp and witty. Oddly, Justin Bartha, who was so funny in "National Treasure," is the totally straight man, the one who's actually getting married and spends most of the movie missing. Nebbishy Ed Helms steals the show as emasculated dentist Stu, and Zach Galifianakis is...well, himself, but not as cringeworthy as I feared. Bradley Cooper's disenchanted schoolteacher Phil gets the short end of the stick in the character department. At the end of the film he's shown to have a new appreciation for his wife and won with no indication of how he achieved this. It's a very funny film and it keeps surprising you...what, Mike Tyson, the hell?...but sometimes it feels like the screenwriter was just tossing stuff at the screen to see what stuck.

This only refers to the extras on this new "Extreme Edition." The reason they get such a low score is that they are the exact same extras as on the previously existing, non-Extreme Blu-Ray release. What makes this edition "extreme?" No idea. There's an included hardcover book of photos. Um...yay? Who cares? This is one of the lamest examples of double-dipping ever. If you've never bought the movie before you might as well, unless the previous release is cheaper, in which case go for that one. You won't miss anything. You'll still get the unrated cut of the film, the commentary, and all the other bonus features on the ordinary Blu-Ray.

In Conclusion:
Funny film. Super lame attempt at a new edition release. Shame, Warner Bros. Shame.
