In this rather juvenile but generally hilarious comedy, three friends awaken in their swanky Las Vegas suite on the morning after a seemingly raucous bachelor party (stag night) with absolutely no memories of what had gone on during it – and no sign, for that matter, of the groom. However, a baby, a tiger, a missing tooth, a hospital receipt, and a stolen police car – all found in their possession – would suggest that it was anything but an uneventful night. And so, with the clock ticking, they desperately attempt to reconstruct the events of the previous 12 hours in the hopes of finding their friend before his all too imminent wedding. Winning performances and intricate, unpredictable plotting combine to good effect.
