On a stag weekend to Las Vegas, three friends wake up to find the groom missing. After a night of heavy drinking, no one can remember what they got up to, and they have little time to retrace their steps and find their missing friend, before his wedding takes place.

Hugely popular on release, The Hangover spurned two sequels, with the same cast and director, Todd Phillips. However, neither come close to silliness and on screen humour of the original.

Starring Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms and Zach Galifianakis, The Hangover is perfect Saturday night viewing; easy to watch and genuinely funny.

The Hangover is on ITV2 at 21.00.
