The Hangover

Question: In the scene right when they leave the hotel after the wild night, they see Doug's mattress. Is there any significance to the guy that turns to them and says some people just can't handle Vegas?

Chosen answer: I'm sure the guy Phil asks is a famous golfer, just not sure who. It is significant in what he says, because the Wolf Pack couldn't handle Vegas, so it was a sideways slap to them.

Question: When they rent the villa for the night Stu pays $4200 for it without any fuss, suggesting money is no problem for him. However, when he finds a receipt for $800 from the casino the day after their wild night, he panics, acting like it's a huge amount. Why did spending $4200 not bother him, but $800 did?

Chosen answer: When they check in, he doesn't actually pay for the villa. As the receptionist said, it was just a copy of the card for security, and they can choose how to pay for the stay upon checkout. At some point in the movie he mentions that his girlfriend checks his credit card statements. This is why he panics at the $800, because she's likely to find it. The copy of the card for the hotel stay does not appear on any statements unless that particular card is used upon checkout.

Question: In the beginning of the film, who is the girl in the pink dress who is leaving the trashed hotel room right before the guys wake up from their night, and, why was she sneaking from the room?

Chosen answer: It's Jade, the stripper Stu married. She's sneaking out because she wants to surprise them with coffee.

Question: How does Phil end up in the hospital? They said it was in the pictures but I didn't see anything, just him in the hospital.

Answer: In the pictures, it is Stu that is fighting with Wayne Newton. It could be assumed that Phil got involved afterwards, but it is never shown.

Chosen answer: They show Phil in the pictures hanging out the with Carrot Top and getting punched by Wayne Newton; the fight with Wayne landed Phil in the hospital.

Question: Doug says they are going home with some money, but how much is the damage to the hotel room going to cost?

Question: How did they manage to get inside Mike Tyson's house though they have come in the police car? Can't the security people understand that they are not real police because they don't have badges?

Chosen answer: I don't think the security thought they were policemen. The guys must have broken into the house when there was no security there. When they return the tiger, Mike's bodyguard says they checked the CCTV footage when they noticed the tiger was missing, found the best man's jacket in the tiger cage, and tracked them back to the hotel. There is no mention of any other security personnel except the bodyguard. Even if security guards had seen the police car and assumed they were cops, when the 'policemen' started urinating in the pool and trying to steal the tiger, they would have given themselves away. The guys broke into an empty house.

Question: Who is the girl Mike Tyson is sleeping with in the end credits photos?

Chosen answer: Nobody in particular. Just a random woman he slept with.

Question: When Chow is naked, it seems he has pubic hair but no genitals. Can someone please explain this?

Chosen answer: He appears to have a micropenis.

Question: Do we ever find out why the Chinese man in the trunk is naked? I understand that Stu claimed he was his lucky charm, but that doesn't explain why he was naked.

Chosen answer: Presumably being locked in the trunk/boot of a car in the sweltering heat might cause someone to get a tad warm whilst in said trunk/boot.

Question: When they realise where Doug is, someone (I can't remember who said it) says, "You can't open hotel room windows in Vegas." Is this true? If so, why not?

Chosen answer: It is true. Its a safety issue. Unfortunately people in Vegas can get a little desperate, and most hotels on the strip are high rises. Someone could lose the rent money or something like that, and jump. Or get drunk and fall out. Most hotels, even in other cities don't have operational windows for safety reasons. I worked for a major strip casino, and we knew of several suicides because of gambling issues, and making the windows non operational helps to eliminate casino/hotel liability. If there are windows you can open, they are usually tiny as to not allow anyone through. Also, its HOT in Vegas, so AC is used most of the time anyway.

Question: If Doug was on the roof the whole time, what exactly has he been doing for the past day while the others try to find him? (01:31:00)

Casual Person

Chosen answer: For the most part, he was passed out or sleeping while waiting for someone to find him.

raywest Premium member

Answer: Of course he was just waiting, sleeping or sleeping it off all that time, but myself I have to wonder; Why didn't any staff OR security find him before his friends?! I'm sure there had to be some daily maintenance work on the rooftop AC's or something, which Doug could use to get back down when they come up! For that matter, I'm sure that if Doug had sufficient wherewithal to signal help by throwing part of his bed off the roof, he could've tried again with either a torn-out padding chunk of the rest, thrown down in the sight of everyone (something soft so as not hurt anyone), disconnecting sundry parts of the aforementioned roof utilities to create something to draw maintenance and security, or some other method entirely. Add to that, finding his box spring in the landscaping would have set the hotel staff buzzing anyway.

It's odd that the guys on the roof removing his mattress didn't see Doug on the roof.

The workers removed the mattress from the porte cochere, which is only a couple stories high. Doug was stuck on the roof of a resort tower, which is substantially higher.
