On June 5, 2009, "The Hangover" hit theaters, and it was a bit of a tearjerker.
However, those tears were the result of uncontrollable laughter, rather than sobbing.
The movie quickly turned into a legend, providing us with some of the funniest one-liners we've ever heard.
Anybody who witnessed a single scene of "The Hangover" wanted more and more.
However, what if "The Hangover" was to be re-made with professional athletes?
Who would be best fitted to replace the characters who united a nation?
Here's how I would re-cast it...
There may not have been an official star to "The Hangover," but it's clear throughout the movie that Alan (Zach Galifianakis) is the one who shines brightest.
Alex Rodriguez always shined brighter than everybody else on the field.
But Alan and Alex don't always shine for the right reasons.
When Alan accidentally buys roofies instead of ecstasy, (common mix-up) he is blamed for losing Doug.
When Alex played poorly during the playoffs, he was heavily criticized.
In the end, however, both of these men shine for the right reasons.
Alex gets a ring, and Alan helps find his new brother-in-law.
When it comes down to it, you either love or hate both Alan and Alex; there really is no in-between when it comes to guys like them.
He may not have officially been in a supporting role, but throughout the movie Phil Wenneck (Bradley Cooper) was the key to most of the movie's great punch-lines.
He set them up.
I really don't think I need to explain why Scottie Pippen was such a great set-up man.
Most people didn't truly appreciate what Bradley Cooper did for "The Hangover." The same could be said about Scottie Pippen and what he did for the Bulls.
Without Scottie Pippen, there is no Michael Jordan.
Without Bradley Cooper, there is no Alan or Stu.
They were both unselfish.
Cooper didn't demand more hilarious punchlines (although he did have quite a few), even though many of his lines were the key to the movie's success.
Pippen was unselfish in not trying to take over the team, (although he did at times) which was the key for the Bulls' success in the '90s.
These guys were both great and under-appreciated.
Stu Price (Ed Helms) was an ordinary guy with an extraordinary talent as a dentist.
Ben Roethlisberger was an ordinary guy with an extraordinary talent on the gridiron.
Until they got wasted.
Then, they both went insane.
When the biggest average Joe in "The Hangover" got wasted, he did what any blacked out dentist would do.
He got married to a smokin' hot woman and acquired a son.
Not bad for a man who fixes teeth, huh?
When Ben Roethlisberger drank too much one night, one 20-year-old woman became intimately aware of the weightiest QB in the NFL.
Forcibly, of course.
All we have are allegations of what exactly happened when Ben Roethlisberger got wasted, but then again, all we have is an exotic dancer's word of what happened to Stu when he got wasted.
Doug Billings's (Justin Bartha) wedding was the impetus of the movie, yet he didn't really show up until the end.
Robert Horry never seemed to show up for 47 minutes a night for whatever team he played for (Rockets, Lakers, Spurs), yet he would always be right in the middle of everything at the end.
Robert Horry and Doug Billings late game entrees prove that you can have a successful career just by showing up at the right time.
Jade (Heather Graham) was an extremely kind individual who was stuck in a bad situation.
The same could be said about Tiger Woods.
Jade was a single-mother working as a stripper.
As a guy, that doesn't seem like the type of girl you would stick with for more than one night.
However, at multiple times during the movie, (especially in the casino near the end) Jade proved to be an extremely helpful and kind individual.
Tiger Woods was the greatest golfer in the world, maybe of all time.
Until he decided that he wanted to try putting into more than one hole.
Once the public was informed of Tiger's "sickness" they ran with it until it became one of the biggest stories of the year.
For months and months he was the butt of every joke.
Yet, at multiple times in his career, Tiger has proved to be an extremely kind, respectable individual.
Tiger and Jade are both good people struggling through tough times in their lives.
He still has it...except he's added a tiger.
Sounds twice as dangerous as the Mike Tyson of old.
Mr. Chow (Ken Jeong) was absolutely hysterical during his small role in "The Hangover."
Kevin Kolb was brilliant in his two starts as Eagles quarterback last season.
Despite their brilliance, both Kolb and Chow were limited to less-than-supporting roles.
However, after throwing for 718 yards and five touchdowns in his only two starts last season, Kevin Kolb has been handed the starting role for the Eagles.
I can't imagine it will be too long before Mr. Chow is thrust into a lead role himself.
Melissa, may be better known by her role (Stu's b@#$%y girlfriend).
She was selfish and demanded control in all situations. Because of it, she ended up alone.
Being a huge Allen Iverson fan, it pains me to say it: he was the same way.
Iverson has been known throughout his career as a bit of a ball hog who didn't attend practice and demanded control at all times.
Melissa (Rachel Harris) got intimate with a bartender on a cruise, was extremely rude to her boyfriend Stu, and demanded to know what he was doing at all times.
At the end of the day, Iverson's flaws were exposed in a big way when he was traded straight up for Chauncey Billups.
Billups went on to make a huge difference for the Nuggets while Iverson played a hand in ending the Piston's successful reign since first acquiring Chauncey.
He bounced around to a few teams after that (Sixers), but he was alone in the end.
Melissa's flaws were pointed out in front of an entire wedding party as Stu dumped her in front a suddenly attentive audience, much to her embarrassment.
However, Melissa shouldn't be as worried as Iverson. The former MVP is working on getting his bartender's license. Many question how willing he'll be to pass the beers to waiting customers.
