The Hangover is a series of three American comedy films created by Jon Lucas and Scott Moore and directed by Todd Phillips. All three films follow the misadventures of a quartet of friends (also known as "the Wolfpack") who go on their road trip to attend a bachelor party. While all of the films finds three of the four men on their mission to find their missing friend, the first two films focus on the events following a night of debauchery before a party in Las Vegas and Bangkok; where as the third and final film involves a road trip and a kidnapping in lieu of a bachelor party, with each film the friends try to deal with the aftermath of their antics while being humiliated and occasionally physically beaten up at each turn.

The Hangover (2009)

The Hangover tells the story of Phil Wenneck, Stu Price and Alan Garner, who travel to Las Vegas for a bachelor party to celebrate the impending marriage of their friend, Doug Billings. However, Phil, Stu, and Alan have no memory of the previous night's events and must find Doug before the wedding can take place.

Screenwriters Jon Lucas and Scott Moore wrote the script after hearing how a friend of executive producer Chris Bender went missing following his bachelor party in Las Vegas. After Lucas and Moore sold it to Warner Bros. for $2 million, director Todd Phillips and Jeremy Garelick rewrote the script to include a tiger as well as a subplot involving a baby and a police cruiser, and also including boxer Mike Tyson. Filming took place in Nevada for 15 days.

The Hangover Part II (2011)

In The Hangover Part II, Phil, Stu, Alan and Doug travel to Thailand for Stu's wedding. After the previous film's bachelor party in Las Vegas, Stu takes no chances and opts for a safe, subdued pre-wedding brunch. However, things do not go as planned, resulting in another bad hangover with no memories of the previous night, which once again has someone lost, this time Stu's future brother-in-law, as Phil, Stu and Alan search for him in Bangkok.

Warner Bros. hired Todd Phillips and Scot Armstrong to write a sequel to The Hangover in April 2009, two months before the film was released after a trailer brought down the house at ShoWest. The principal actors were cast in March 2010 to reprise their roles from the first film. Production began in October 2010, in Ontario, California, before moving on location in Thailand.

The Hangover Part III (2013)

Two years after The Hangover Part II, Phil, Stu, and Doug are happily living uneventful lives at home. The only member of the Wolfpack who is not content is Alan. Still lacking a sense of purpose, Alan has ditched his meds and given in to his natural impulses until the untimely death of his father forces him to finally re-evaluate his lifestyle and seek the help he needs. Fortunately, Phil, Stu, and Doug are there to make sure Alan takes the first step. This time, there is no bachelor party and wedding, but things still go awry when the Wolfpack hits the road.

Todd Phillips first announced plans for a third film in May 2011, days before the release of The Hangover Part II. Craig Mazin, who co-wrote Part II, was also brought on abroad in May to script the film. The principal actors signed on in January 2012 and production began in September 2012 in Los Angeles, California before moving to Nogales, Arizona and Las Vegas, Nevada. The film was released on May 23, 2013.
