If you’re looking for movies like The Hangover, here are some similar comedies that will have you laughing out loud:
1. We’re the Millers (2013)
Googling the distinction between a drug dealer and a drug smuggler doesn’t go well for David Clark, also known as David Miller. His and his “family’s” transformation from being one is not pleasant either.
He accepts the huge task from his major drug lord, agreeing to “smuggle” drugs out of Mexico in a caravan with a fake family, the Millers – made up of Sarah Miller, a little-time and now unemployed stripper as his wife, Kenny, David’s neighbor as his “acting” son, and Casey, a runaway girl as his “adopted” daughter.
The initial friction, along with Jeniffer Aniston’s sultriness and the misunderstandings, forms a subtle comedy of errors that’s thoroughly enjoyable. Moreover, the closure and the rib-tickling dialogues are not to be missed. Easily the best movie performance of Jason Sudeikis.
2. The Hangover Part III (2013)
This is the final installment in The Hangover trilogy. In this movie, Wolfpack tries to help Alan by taking him to a rehabilitation center in Arizona. But things go awry when Doug is kidnapped, and the guys have to find him before his wedding.
