Before Doug (Justin Bartha) gets married in the morning, his buddies (Zach Galifianakis, Bradley Cooper and Ed Helms) are planning on sharing a night they'll never forget. Unfortunately, after an evening of excessive drinking, none of them can remember a thing about their Las Vegas bachelor party -- especially where they have left Doug! Struggling with massive hangovers, the three groomsmen are now forced to follow their party trail in the hopes of finding their pal and getting him to the church on time.
