10 Movies Like/Similar to The Hangover

If you loved The Hangover (you can buy it on Amazon here), The Hangover part 2 and The Hangover part 3 then you will love these films. What's better than watching people making hilarious mistakes whilst they are drunk? Nothing!


Due Date
This film features Zach Galifianakis who was in The Hangover, so what's better than to see him play a starring role in this film? This film features a hopeful dad to be rushing to make it home in time to witness his child's birth. But when you are forced to hitch a ride with an aspiring actor to try and make it on time, things might not go to plan...

Director: Todd Phillips
Writers: Todd Phillips, Adam Sztykiel, Alan Freedland and Alan R. Cohen
Starring: Robert Downey Jr., Zach Galifianakis and Michelle Monaghan


Old School
When you find out your girlfriend has been cheating and been involved in group sex numerous times, what do you do? Well you move house right next to a college campus of course. That's what has happened to attorney Mitch (Luke Wilson) so the only thing to do now is to invite over his two best friends Frank (Will Ferrell) and Beanie (Vince Vaughn). Reminiscing about their old glory days, they decide to turn the house into a party house, much to the annoyance of the college's dean.

Director: Todd Phillips
Writers: Court Crandall, Scot Armstrong and Todd Phillips
Starring: Will Ferrell, Vince Vaughn and Luke Wilson


When your hoping to go to a graduation party after high school, you can't go empty handed. Two high school seniors hope to score some booze for a party but after several complications, awkward situations and two unusual police officers things don't go their way. Will they get to the party? Will they even get their alcohol? What things do they get up to, to try and get it? I recommend this film as it is one of my all time favourites and hilariously funny, watch it!

Director: Greg Mottola
Writers: Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg
Starring: Michael Cera, Jonah Hill and Christopher Mintz-Plasse


21 and Over
More drunken antics but this time for a reason. It's straight A student Jeff Chang's 21st birthday and his two friends visit him as a surprise to try and get him to go out to the clubs with them for his birthday. Even though he insists he has an interview early the next morning, they manage to persuade him to go out for a drink. But one drink turns into two and so on. Blacking out, it looks like Jeff Chang is going to mess up the most important day of his life.

Director: Jon Lucas, Scott Moore
Writers: Jon Lucas, Scott Moore
Starring: Miles Teller, Justin Chon and Jonathan Keltz


Project X
The title of this film sounds like a horror but is actually a comedy. What do you do when you aren't known in high school and you want to change that? Throw a party of course! That's what three unknown friends do to make themselves known. But as with many of these films, things don't quite go to plan. What happens when word of the party spreads? Legends are hatched, records are destroyed and relationships ruined or strengthened.

Director: Nima Nourizadeh
Writers: Matt Drake, Michael Bacall
Starring: Thomas Mann, Oliver Cooper and Jonathan Daniel Brown


American Pie
Most people love this film including me and it isn't hard to see why. This film follows four boys trying to loose their virginity by prom night after entering a pact. Now it might not sound that good, but this film is hilariously funny as there are many twists to it and like all good American high school films, this one will make you love the film. With humiliating scenes and further American Pie films for you to enjoy, you can carry on watching the whole sequel.

Director: Paul Weitz, Chris Weitz
Writer: Adam Herz
Starring: Jason Biggs, Chris Klein, Thomas Ian Nicholas and Eddie Kaye Thomas


Road Trip
After filming his business with another girl, Josh (Breckin Meyer) accidentally mails it to his girlfriend. Stopping this tape is of the most important priority, so he enlists the help of his two college friends and another person and his car who doesn't really want to help. This 1800 mile trip to Austin, Texas from New York is packed full of surprises and plot twists. Will he get the tape and save his relationship?

Director: Todd Phillips
Writers: Todd Phillips and Scot Armstrong
Starring: Breckin Meyer, Seann William Scott and Amy Smart


Winning a couple of awards, this film is another of my favourites. When their basketball coach passes away from when they trained in high school, some friends reunite to mourn their coach and to visit the place of their championship celebration years earlier as a memorial. With their wives and children coming with them, you would think that the friends would behave and have grown up. But they soon discover maturity has no link with age.

Director: Dennis Dugan
Writers: Fred Wolf, Adam Sandler
Starring: Adam Sandler, Kevin James, Salma Hayek, Chris Rock, David Spade and Rob Schneider


Hot Tub Time Machine
When you're stuck in life, what do you do? Go skiing of course. Four guys including the man's nephew go to a ski resort for some away time but after heavy drinking in the hot tub, they wake up in 1986. Could they change their lives now? Yes they could, but if they do the man's nephew won't be born. Can they act out the exact same scenarios as last time?

Director: Steve Pink
Writers: Josh Heald, John Morris and Sean Anders
Starring: John Cusack, Clark Duke, Craig Robinson, Rob Corddry


The Hungover Games
Now this film is a parody of The Hangover, Ted, The Hunger Games, Pirates of the Caribbean, Avatar and other films. This isn't my preferred genre of films but if it is yours then this looks like a good one. I thought I would add it as you might need something silly in your life.

Director: Josh Stolberg
Writers: Kyle Barnett Anderson, David Bernstein, Jamie Kennedy
Starring: Ross Nathan, Sam Pancake, Ben Begley and Herbert Russell
