50 Worst Movie Hangover Scenes

Someone get the painkillers...

The Hangover (2009)

The Movie Hangover: The mackdaddy of all on-screen post-party moments - this is one bachelor party gone very wrong thanks to Alan (Zach Galifianakis) and some roofies.

Why It's Worse Than Your Hangover: Where to begin? The absent groom, the missing tooth, the baby in the closet, the inadvertent wedding... Oh yeah, and Mike Tyson's tiger.

We hope none of you have experienced anything close to this one.

Die Hard With A Vengeance (1995)

The Movie Hangover: Unfortunately for John McClane (Bruce Willis), terrorism can strike at any moment, and in Die Hard With A Vengeance that moment is the morning after a huge bender.

Why It's Worse Than Your Hangover: Have you ever tried to save the world on a hangover?! We didn't think so.

Poor John just wants some painkillers.

Knocked Up (2007)

The Movie Hangover: She's out celebrating a promotion, he's just looking to score. It was only ever going to end one way.

It's impossible to forget the look of disgust on Alison's (Katherine Heigl) face as she tentatively assesses Ben (Seth Rogen) and his bare arse in her bed the next day.

Why It's Worse Than Your Hangover: If the awkward post-coital breakfast wasn't bad enough ("You know, the best thing for a hangover is weed"), this is one hangover that doesn't go away when Alison discovers she's pregnant.

Always use protection, kids.

Anchorman (2004)

The Movie Hangover: Even the Channel 5 news team struggle sometimes.

The gang meet up to talk through their hangovers and dissect the action from the night before (Brick (Steve Carell) ate a big red candle).

Why It's Worse Than Your Hangover: Poor Champ. Spoken through gritted teeth:

"I woke up on the floor of some Japanese family's rec room, and they would NOT stop screaming..."

Withnail & I (1987)

The Movie Hangover: It all catches up with the booze crew as the hangover finally descends. We're feeling nauseous just remembering.

Why It's Worse Than Your Hangover: Withnail sums it up quite succinctly:

"I feel like a pig shat in my head".

Flight (2012)

The Movie Hangover: Airline pilot Whip Whitaker (Denzel Washington) sets himself up for a bad one when he combines a night of booze, sex, drugs, and no sleep with a line of coke, a vodka and Flight 227 to Atlanta.

Alarm bells start ringing when he blearily wakes up in hospital.

Why It's Worse Than Your Hangover: Whip quickly discovers that he's being hailed as a hero, but it's hard to enjoy praise when you know there's an incriminating toxicology report waiting to destroy your reputation.

Also, we never ever want to fly again.

Bridesmaids (2011)

The Movie Hangover: After mixing her anxiety meds with a huge swig of booze, nervous flyer Annie (Kristen Wiig) actually starts to enjoy the ride.

In fact, she starts to enjoy it a bit too much. Cue Hitler gags, loud singing and the whole hen party getting booted off the plane.

Why It's Worse Than Your Hangover: Not only does Annie have to deal with a banger of a headache on the coach journey home, she also gets ceremonially sacked as maid of honour. That's a double whammy.

Superbad (2007)

The Movie Hangover: Nursing sore heads (and feeling sheepish after their loved-up chat the previous night), Seth (Jonah Hill) and Evan (Michael Cera) head to the mall for some hungover shopping.

Obviously they bump straight into their female aquaintances from the night before, and so begins a very awkward conversation between four very pained teens.

Why It's Worse Than Your Hangover : Each member of the gang is feeling pretty shameful and rotten, but special mention has to go to Jules (Emma Stone), sporting a huge shiner courtesy of Seth.

Black Swan (2010)

The Movie Hangover: Nina (Natalie Portman) wakes up with a chronic case of beer fear after a night of partying and wild sex with ballet girl colleague Lily (Mila Kunis).

Why It's Worse Than Your Hangover: She arrives at work ready for an awkward conversation only to discover that Lily went home with some random dude last night, leavnig Nina to wonder if she dreamt the whole thing. This is undoubtedly the tipping point for Nina's mental collapse, and the the moment the audience starts questioning every single thing in Black Swan.

Dude, Where's My Car? (2000)

The Movie Hangover: A hapless duo wake up with a bad case of alcohol-inflicted amnesia, a missing car and a fridge full of chocolate pudding.

Party on.

Why It's Worse Than Your Hangover: This is one puzzle that isn't easily fixed, as the hunt for the titular vehicle takes Jesse (Ashton Kutcher) and Chester (Seann William Scott) on a wild ride with aliens, of all things.
