Hangovers come in all shapes and sizes, from the mildly uncomfortable to the life threatening. Unfortunately for the people on this list, powerful hangover relief formulas have not been around forever, or they might have faired a little better. Here’s a list of some of the worst hangovers in film history:
Where to start? The missing groom, the missing tooth, the shotgun wedding and Mike Tyson’s tiger… definitely a situation you are going to want to avoid on a hangover.

The Channel 5 company party has the news team looking a little worse for wear. The prize for worse hangover of the bunch probably goes to Champ, the sports reporter: “I woke up on the floor of a Japanese families rec room, and they would not stop screaming.” Nightmare.
3 grown men attempt to relive their best years and start a college frat. Mitch, played by Luke Wilson, wakes up after a heavy night to discover he’s had a 1- night-stand with a gorgeous blonde. So far so good, right? Until he discovers the girl is actually in high-school and is in fact his boss’ daughter. Not good.

Get Him To The Greek
