Positive Message: 0/5: A very blurry message, be careful, when in Vegas.
Positive Role Model: 0/5: No one here should be looked at as someone to look up to.
Violence: 3/5: Beatings, guns, and vehicular danger happen occasionally.
Sex: 4/5: Occasional nudity (most of the nudity is in the credits, which contains some bare breasts and exposed male genitalia), and a lot of explicit sexual conversation and references to techniques, acts, and innuendos for body parts. Reference to being on a sex offender list.
Language: 5/5: A curse word virtually every other sentence. Words used: F**k, s**t, b***h, hell, a**, and many others.
Consumerism: 2/5: The movie is partially filmed in Vegas, so real places in Vegas can be seen. Various brands and other pop culture references (e.g. Chuck E. Cheese, Indiana Jones, and others) are referred to.
Drinking, Drugs and Smoking: 5/5: With hangover in the movie title, alcohol content shouldn't be a surprise, constant alcohol and drug use. However, the side effects are well represented.
While not a good choice for a family movie, for the appropriate audience, The Hangover provides a laugh out loud good-time summer film experience.
