Justin Bartha: Groom-to-be Doug Billings
Zach Galifianakis: Doug’s future brother-in-law Alan Garner
Sasha Barrese: Doug’s fiancée Tracy
Bradley Cooper: their buddy Phil Wenneck, a high school teacher
Ed Helms: another friend Stu Price, a dentist
Rachel Harris: his girlfriend Melissa

Based on the reaction of the target audience (young 18 + males) this is one heckuv good movie. For everyone else it can best be described as raunchy, gross, crude guy humour with the requisite scenes of projectile vomiting, shots to the groin area, unmistakeable sexual hand movements, foul language, lots of action/bedlam and pretty girls with skimpy outfits.

In fact some of the slapstick is downright painful to watch…and they call that comedy? I don’t.

for pervasive language, sexual content including nudity, and some drug material.

1. The steak ordered from room service is very soft and floppy when on the plate. But when Alan offers it to the tiger it is as stiff as a board, presumably a prop so the tiger doesn’t leap for it.
2. Alan said he put 5 pills in the steak; in fact it was only 3.
3. Alan's face shows no marks where the Taser probes hit him.
4. The damage to the car keeps changing throughout the movie.

Normally I skip movies like this for obvious reasons but while reading People Magazine I saw they gave it a 3 out of 4 star rating so I figured I’d go see it. In future I won’t rely on People Magazine when deciding which movies to go to.
